Great food and drink. Good service, except when the server switched our bill with another table. It was cleared up quickly, but only because we noticed it.

Service was way above average. We sat in the back as I had two young kids with me. The food came quickly and the quality was excellent. Superb value considering the location and what they could charge in this downtown location.

We had one dinner at Bartholomew's during our BC trip and it was delicious. The pork schnitzel was incredible as was the shepherds pie. The atmosphere is lively and there was a band setting up to play. Servers were friendly and efficient.More

Description
Located on the Arcade level of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Victoria, Bartholomew's has been a favourite spot for both locals and visitors alike since 1975. We offer a casual relaxed atmosphere, in an English-style setting, as well as a beautiful outdoor patio (seasonal). Bartholomew's is proud to support our local craft beer industry and offers beer on tap from all the major Victoria breweries. We are also famous for our signature double seafood Caesar, which is considered, by many, to be the best in Victoria. Our menu is extensive, offering classic pub fare and families are welcome. Enjoy live entertainment every Friday & Saturday from 9 pm, as we showcase some of Victoria's finest talent, no cover charge. Every Saturday, from June through September we offer a patio barbeque from 6 pm, weather permitting. The menu features a selection of summer favourites, and rotates weekly.
