The choice of beers...wow! The view....very nice. The atmosphere ....friendly English pub. The wait staff....while perfectly friendly, lacking a bit in professional diligence. The food...The ladies enjoyed their salads. My burger was a bit better than average, and my burger-hound brother LOVED his mutton burger,...More

Went there just for drinks. It is a nice 20-25 minute walk from the inner Victoria harbor to the Spinnaker Brewpub and this walk is also worth the view you have from the brewpub´s patio. I just had a beer tasting, but this was very...More

Does the title say it all? A wonderful experience. Prime view, attentive service, lovely ambiance. It was actually a bit quiet Sunday morning. We got there about 9, which might be a good time to get there as by 1000 it was a highly energized...More

Worth the 25/30 minute walk from the town centre/harbour. Once you have crossed the huge iron road bridge (being replaced) the walk is around the inlet, pleasant and in the main flat. A large pub on two levels, with an equally large range of beers....More

The view from Spinnakers patio is amazing! Food choices were quite limited for me, I'm not a fussy eater at all, but I had a hard time choosing what to order. I had the meat pie and it was delicious, until the middle of the...More

I give this 3 stars: 1 for the food and 5 for the view and the vibe, which averages out to 3. In other words, go here for the view and the beautiful deck, but not for the food (although we did have a great...More

The stout is amazing and liked it so much that I decided to eat less for dinner. The mushroom pizza (half portion) with the salad was delicious. A great atmosphere and service to match. Highly recommended.
