Supper special was a excellent Beef and Yorkshire pudding. The building is old, but well kept up. The service was very good, but I left my hearing aids at home and had a little trouble understanding the very understanding server,

Went there for lunch and had a good version of seafood chowder. Not the thick pasty stuff but good old fashioned chowder thickened with a little roux and the potatoes in the soup. My spouse had shrimp stir fry and we both had cold hard...More

This is just a typical old pub.. Was really expecting more based on tripadvisors ratings. Dark, old, average pub grub, service was lacking. Looks like they have their local crowd and don't care to build on it.

My husband had the beef dip which he rated as good. I had the Club sandwich. Possibly the worst I have ever eaten. Far to thick and poorly assembled.

Came across this pub when looking for a place to eat vacationing in Parksville. Went back three times. Great food, great staff and we really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere. Would highly recommend this pub.

We chose to eat in the pub rather than the restaurant and that was probably a mistake. The food and the service were fine but the atmosphere was poor. A lot of bad language was being used by other patrons and that negatively impacted our...More
