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.

“Great atmosphere, good food, & good service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

We ate here on a couple of occasions when staying in Victoria. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was good, and typically North American in size (huge), and very reasonably priced. A popular spot I think, if the clientele we met is anything to go by!

“What a Fun Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Gone here a few times for drinks, my fave is the ceaser with pickled beans, olives, onions, shrimp and an oyster it's an amazing drink and meal in itself! The service is always awesome with the bartenders being friendly, lively band Thurs, Fri and Saturday nights with friendly regulars make it a nice place to have a drink and unwind. The music is top 40 and old school rock, always a good song to keep you wanting to dance. The band members do tribute songs to the 50s, 60, 70s and 80s and dress up to each era. Been here about 4 times and remains consistently a fun place to visit. I would recommend and return.

“Great Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Not your average "Hotel Bar". This place is small, friendly, cozy and well run. Normally I would run away from a pub in a hotel unless I was trapped there in a snowstorm; this one I would hike to.
