Our friends collected us at the terminal in Victoria and we headed back to Nanaimo using a lot of side roads including a stop at the Crow and Gate for some fried oysters and a walk around its delightful garden. You might just have been at a pub in Sussex. Lovely garden, great food, wonderful Vancouver Island microbrewery beers, good... More

We specifically drove up from Victoria just to have lunch and a pint here on recommendations from a friend. We were not disappointed. Lovely gardens and tables outside. Inside we were transported to the UK and both agreed it rivalled any pub we had visited in England for ale, food, atmosphere and service. The beef and mushroom pie was incredibly... More

We live in Victoria, about 90 minutes away. We have been to the Crow & Gate many times and it is our favorite pub. The staff are friendly, the food is great English style pub food, prices are cheap, atmosphere and grounds are great.

This pub is very popular on a private estate, very English inside. Food is presented nicely, however I wasn't impressed with the taste. I had chicken pot pie, mostly the filling and a pastry puff on top. It came with potato salad and a green salad, but the dressing wasn't enough and rather bitter. I did enjoy the atmosphere of...

This is the second time I've visited the Crow & Gate - but I won't be back. While I love the atmosphere, it took an HOUR to get a beef dip and a Ploughman's lunch. By the time lunch arrived, the atmosphere was unimportant as we were weak with hunger. Although the place was jammed & the servers said a... More

Arriving with a party of 6 and seeing that the parking lot was full gave indication of a long wait. We were greeted immediately on entering by staff who took out name and assured us we will get seated as soon as possible. While we had a little wait one only had to look around to note the popularity of... More

I love it here! Ors so nice they actually hold wedding events. It's like stepping backing time and going to a tavern. Outside is gardens and farms, inside is dark and wooden. The drinks are really good and have all kinds of beer. I highly recommended this place. Definitely a bit out of the way so you will need a... More

My husband and I were vacationing near Nanaimo on Vancouver Island last week and were anxious to eat at the Crow and Gate Pub. We had met several locals and they highly recommended it. Several of them had told us it is such a wonderful restaurant that they eat there once a week. The atmosphere replicated a real English pub,... More

Excellent venue as usual. Roaring fire. Great menu. Atmosphere electric with fun people. Food very good with good choice of alcoholic beverages. More expensive than other Nanaimo venues but worth it.

A local favourite for those who love excellent pub food and drinks in an authentic English style pub setting. The extensive pub grounds are absolutely beautiful with a space for helicopters to land. You order food and drinks from the board and they are brought to your table, which you may or may not share with others, depending on the... More
