“Tasty English fare at a real good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

Since moving to Qualicum Beach I've eaten lunch here about a half dozen times. Each time I have truly enjoyed the tasty food and the ever-so-friendly English staff.

What I truly appreciate is that they keep their food authentic, not trying to 'water it down' to North American tastes. And they cook it fresh daily -- this isn't processed food. It's the kind of true English fare you would get in someone's home.

They serve generous portions in a friendly, warm atmosphere, with efficient service, and it's obvious when you walk in that they have a full slate of local regulars (known by name). Lunch is the only meal I've eaten here so far so I can't speak to what's on the menu for breakfast or supper. But for lunch you can expect such things as bangers and mash, steak and kidney pie, cornish pasties (oh man those are good!), homemade soup, and always some tempting special.

It may not be fancy, but you can be sure the friendly folks will be sure you eat well and at a good value. Enjoy.

“Dinner Guests”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

This little unpretencious restaurant treats customers as if you were their
guests for dinner. We love the roast beef or turkey dinners. Fresh
vegetables and good gravey! Lovely staff! And the bread pudding is
just like 'mom' used to bake!

“Old English fare, with a down home feel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

The finest English Restaurant this side of the pond. Owned and run by a family of real Cockneys, imported from England, the food couldn't be more authentic. The Head chef, in fact, once cooked in the service of the Queen. The Cockney Pride offers excellent food that is prepared fresh every day. They have great value, large portions, a friendly, warm atmosphere, fast efficient service, and quite a loyal following. I would advise making a reservation for supper as tables fill up fast for their famous and generous roast dinners. They offer a hearty breakfast menu. Lunch favourites include bangers and mash, steak and kidney pie, an assorted health plate of lean meats and salads, and of course their legendary fries go nicely with any hot or cold sandwich plate. For dessert I would recommend the trifle or the creme brule. When we lived in Qualicum Beach we frequented this restaurant almost daily, and since we've moved away I miss it and the owners very much. Thank-you for the years of excellent food, wonderful service and great friendship!

“Favourite English cafe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Set in Qualicum Beach town centre, British Columbia has typical English style food menu, large portions and very reasonable prices. This makes up for the fact that the cafe is simply styled but the locals love it!

The food here is very good. Service is friendly and prompt. Small and plain inside and alot of seniors come in [they like a good value] Everything I've ever had has been very good and the prices are reasonable.Nothing pretentious about this place, just good food and friendly service. Excellent steak and kidney pie!
