“want to experience an authentic English pub in a beautiful setting- come here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

the Crow & Gate has been a favourite spot of mine for years- to go - relax - enjoy the authentic EnglishPub atmosphere and in the summer the beautiful English gardens- where you can sti outside and enjoy your lunch and a pint
go early if you want lunch - by noon - you wont find a spot to sit
in the evening the spot comes alive with locals and music-
it is a bit off the beatenpath- but well worth the journey

“Wonderful and Unique Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Crow and Gate Pub in Cedar ( Nanaimo) is a favourite of ours. Located in the Yellowpoint/Cedar area south of Nanaimo it is located in a semi rural area. The pub design is similar to a rural english pub with a low ceiling, exposed beams, two fireplaces, long tables, along with booths and smaller tables. The landscaping around the pub is beautiful and in the spring and summer spectacular. The food is great pub food and the service excellent. I highly recommend it.

“The Crow and Gate - A Wonderful Gem on the outskirts of Nanaimo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

En route to Tofino (from Victoria), we "shunpiked" in order to find the Crow and Gate - a pub highly recommended by friends. It was well worth the stop! We felt as if we had just stepped into a rural English pub....from ordering off a chalk board at the desk to enjoying the first class pub fare. A roaring fire in the background topped things off - as it was raining and cold outside. We shared a table with an interesting couple from Salt Spring and had a most enjoyable lunch - so much so that we stopped again on Sunday, en route home from Tofino. Once again, we had top fare and fun table mates...We highly recommend taking the extra few minutes it takes to find this pub.
