We visited on a busy Saturday afternoon. We had heard about their soup and sandwich special so headed on down but they only had 1 left when we arrived. We split it in a group of 6. The rest of the food was typical pub...More

The place to go after finishing the West Coast Trail or driving the Wet Coast Highway. Nice selection of craft beer and a decent menu. Seafood Chowder is a signature dish and Wife said the Prawn Tacos were “the best that she had ever had”....More

Popped in here for lunch after doing a couple of hikes, very looking forward to a beer and lunch. Atmosphere is alright. We were sat quickly and the gal took our order (food and bev) and then proceeded to wander around; it wasn't busy. After...More

The title says it all. They have good food with gluten free options. Really good beer, and a good selection as well. The views from the patio is what takes the cake though. They are amazing. You are right on the ocean, with views of...More

We stayed basically across the 'road' from the Port Renfrew Pub. It had the best pub food we have ever had. We were in Port Renfrew for two days - and we had dinner at the pub both evenings. Paul & Carla

We had lunch at this pub and we were surprised at the high calibre of both their presentation and quality. We had shrimp tacos and the fish & chips and both were delicious. Service was great.

Very busy place. We could barely get a table, but amongst the chaos, they served us promptly with smiles and the food was sooo yummy. If you like Seafood Chowder-this one is killer.

Yes! Our license allows for kids in all areas of the Pub until 10:00 pm, and we also have a "Restaurant" side that is quieter and family friendly at all hours.

The Renfrew Pub is the homey gathering place for locals and visitors at the heart of Snuggery Cove. Friendly and inviting, it’s the sort of place even first-timers swear they’ve been before. The waterfront pub and restaurant occupies an enviable spot, right next to the dock. Our craft brews include crisp, cold favourites from right around here: Vancouver Island Brewery High Trail Honey Ale, Lighthouse Race Rocks, Saltspring Island Golden Ale, Phillips Blue Buck, Granville Island Raspberry Ale. And we’re just getting started. Our food is all about quality with a fresh, homespun focus. Chickens are roasted daily on site; sauces and gravies are built from scratch. The baked goods are handcrafted, fries hand-cut, and herbs pulled fresh. Choose from sumptuous burgers or boat-to-table seafood drawn from nearby waters. The Pub serves breakfast (weekends), lunch and dinner, along with elevated pub fare — wings for the game and gooey poutine. Snuggle up or wake up with a steaming mug of Discovery Coffee from Victoria’s beloved roastery, and let the day unspool.
