“Food was ok but way overpriced”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We thought we would check out the pub as we heard it had a reno done .We had a burger and a small pizza.They are trying to serve specialty food,the pizza had small potatos on it and the burger had different toppings.The food was good but way overpriced for what you get.The view of the Fraser river was nice but would have been a lot better if it was on the other side of the road and tracks on the river.Never the less the view was good and luckey enough it is a fairley quiet road

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Billy Miner! We should be on the other side of the road… but alas, we're not. Come in the summertime though and it's a fantastic view from the patio. Looking forward to having you back.

“Graet alehouse and Pizza too”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The pub part is very open and inviting. The staff is very knowledgable and friendly, service is quick and efficient. Most of all they have an amazing selection of beer, ale and stouts. Next door (and in the pub) a wonderful selection of unusual pizza is served in a friendly atmosphere with a view of the Fraser River and the WestCoast Express. Worth the trip from the big city.

“Gourmet Burgers & Pizza”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Great to see new management in this heritage icon. The building was originally a bank next to the railway track and station, today a West Coast Express station. The bar is set back into the original bank vault. There's a great story here, as Billy Miner, one of the old west's famous bank robbers hit this place when it was a bank.

Today, the new management, who also own the Mission Springs Pub in Mission, BC have revitalized the place with a fantastic upscale pub food menu. Some of my favourites are the gourmet burgers, the pulled pork and their delicious pizza.

If you haven't been back in a couple years, give this place another chance, as it's changed remarkably for the better.

You're right! It is a heritage building and there did use to be an old safe in the back. Now-a-days though, we use it as the cooler for the beer! Thanks so much for the review and we're pretty proud of how it's come such a long way. Come visit anytime!

“Cosy pub with great food”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

After passing the sign many times while driving by on the Haney Bypass, we finally decided to stop in and we were pleasantly surprised both by the extensive craft beer selection and the interesting food menu. We were torn between pizza and one of the french fry concoctions. It seems they started with poutine and then let their imaginations fly. We chose smoked chicken, jalapenos and goat cheese in sweet chili sauce and it was delicious! One order was plenty for two so we'll have to go back to try the pizza as well as several of the other menu items that appealed. We also enjoyed the beers we tried, Lions Winter Ale and Trailblazer Pilsner. The pub is divided into two rooms which gives it a cosy feel and keeps the noise level down. The window tables provide a view of the Fraser River across the road and also the West Coast Express which stops at the station just across the way. Our server was very friendly and helpful as well as providing excellent service. We definitely plan to return soon.

All of us here are so glad that you decided to pop in and give us a try! We're very proud of how far we've come through the years and you're right- we let our imaginations fly with the french fries! Believe it or not, we still have more creativity left and hope to introduce more concoctions this year! Thanks so much for a fantastic review and we look forward to seeing you back in The Billy Miner soon :)
