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.
A couple of things to note: There is no need to make a reservation to join us, we are a first come first serve establishment. Dogs are unfortunately not permitted on our patio. We are happy to adapt our meals to allergies and we take the upmost attention to detail when it comes to this.
