welcome home

The Renfrew Pub is the homey gathering place for locals and visitors at the heart of Snuggery Cove. Friendly and inviting, it’s the sort of place even first-timers swear they’ve been before. The waterfront pub and restaurant occupies an enviable spot, right next to the dock. The great room — with cathedral ceiling, gleaming 10-tap draught system, pool table and flat screen TVs — offers up micro-brews, tasty fare, and nautical charm.

The dining room’s French doors are left open to warm afternoons. The scent of toasted cedar drifts on the breeze. Sprawling wrap-around patios let you follow the sun and offer panoramic views of the bay and bluffs. There isn’t a bad seat in this house. This is the spot to shed your shoes, grab a pint or glass of white, and enjoy a natter with friends. Don’t be surprised to see an eagle cruising overhead or a curious harbour seal popping up in the inlet to say hello.

On chilly evenings when the fog rolls in, the illuminated Renfrew Pub sign beckons with the promise of conviviality in the cove. On special nights, live music spills into the night. With cedar shingles and warm-lit windows, this public house is like a woodsy cabin shared with friends.

sips & bites

Our craft brews include crisp, cold favourites from right around here: Vancouver Island Brewery High Trail Honey Ale, Lighthouse Race Rocks, Saltspring Island Golden Ale, Phillips Blue Buck, Granville Island Raspberry Ale. And we’re just getting started.

Our food is all about quality with a fresh, homespun focus; sauces and gravies are built from scratch. If it can be made in-house, Chef Kevin and his team take it on. The baked goods are handcrafted, fries hand-cut, and herbs pulled fresh. Choose from sumptuous burgers or boat-to-table seafood drawn from nearby waters.

The Pub serves lunch and dinner, along with elevated pub fare — wings for the game and gooey poutine. Snuggle up or wake up with a steaming mug of Discovery Coffee from Victoria’s beloved roastery, and let the day unspool.

Cook yer catch

BYOC. It’s not everywhere you can dine out and take your fresh-caught fish along, but here we march to our own drummer. Bring us your best catch and we’ll make it to order. Crabs straight from the trap? We’ll cook ‘em up too. A great way to enjoy the fruits of your labour…without the labour (leave that part to us). It doesn’t get any fresher.

Stay the night

Happily, a pub night doesn’t have to end. The new Wild Renfrew Seaside Cottages are just a few paces down the dock. Enjoy dinner and drinks with loved ones, then stroll home to your luxury digs. Linger by the fire or under the stars.
