Description: Merridale is a delicious destination in Cowichan —an apple orchard, craft cider house, small batch distillery, and wedding and event venue. Our authentic Vancouver Island restaurant combines cider and spirit pairings with a farm to table inspired menu, and our artisan bakery crafts fresh baked goods made with our cider leaven in brick ovens. Savour house-made delicacies such as sausages, cured meats, salad dressings, breads, and pies - then pick some up at the farm store to take home! Enjoy a true island experience from your table on the covered deck overlooking the orchard and fresh herb and vegetable garden. Or join us for one of our special dinners – pizza nights with live music, mystery spirit cask dinners, and so much more.

So, maybe I'm biased. I love cider. They've got a great selection! But the food is always good, as is the service. And I always love the ambiance of Merridale.

My wife and I have been to Merridales a few times before and love the atmosphere and cider. We decided to have our wedding reception there and it was wonderful. The staff was a blast and extremely helpful the night of the event. The restaurant and grounds are just so beautiful. Janet and Jess were great and made sure everything went smooth. All of our guests had a wonderful time and loved the venue and staff. Highly recommend Merridales for not only weddings but just a great time out, whether its for a dinner or just to stop buy and taste some ciders and fresh pastries. Beautiful place! Corrie & Jason

My husband and I had our wedding day at Merridale in August of 2013. Jess, our wedding organizer, was AMAZING. She answered all of our questions and responded to all of our requests without hesitation. Merridale is a beautiful place to have a wedding or even go for an afternoon cider tasting! The staff were friendly and helpful and we would highly recommend a visit and/or a WEDDING :P

People are still talking about how beautiful and amazing our wedding was. We cannot begin to thank the staff and owners of Merridale for helping to create everlasting memories. From start to finish, the day was perfect. Being able to find a venue that could accommodate our ceremony, reception, pictures and wedding night was truly a stress relieving experience. Thank you Merridale for helping make it a perfect day.

As soon as we saw Merridale we knew it would be the perfect location for our wedding. Our subsequent visits and meetings only reinforced this feeling. The Merridale staff were nothing but helpful and made it easy to plan our wedding from Calgary. Everything from the food to the cider to the decor was perfect. Our guests gave great reviews too!

I definitely recommend spending the night in the yurt. It was a relaxing way to end the evening and breakfast the next day was delightful.
