Shhh.... don't tell the Mrs. but I like beer. I like beer a lot, with a preference for ambers, maybe, but I'm pretty multi-cultural when it comes to a pint or two.
The Farthing is a faux English pub. Wood and brass and beer and people and green and rugby stuff on the walls. The beer is cold, the service very nice for the most part. The bar-keeps are all pretty good as are most of the waitresses. The beer is cold. The beer is good.
The food, though, isn't. Some stuff is OK, most is bland or boring or incredibly mediocre. We don't eat there anymore. Not worth it. The beer, however, is cold. The beer, moreover, is good.
Stop by the Farthing for a pint or two. It's a lovely spot in Oak Bay. Yeah, it's a bit pricey so you might want to check the price on some of those ooh-la-la, fancy beers and certainly on those lovely smelling, though awful-tasting, scotches.
Visit soon. Visit often. Just eat somewhere else.
