If you happen to be travelling the THC through the Cowichan valley, the pioneer house is a great place to enjoy a "home" atmosphere and a home cooked meal. The portions are large, the prices are reasonable and the "feel" of the place make it...More

We've visited twice in maybe three years and each time we nod and say, we'll be back. The service is friendly and the food is solid. I had an omelette, choosing ingredients from the list on the menu, and enjoyed a healthy blend of spinach,...More
