This was our first time to the restaurant, as a group of us were on Quadra Island for the weekend. I would recommend that you eat in the restaurant and not in the pub, as the pub seemed really 'grungy'.

We ate in the tavern side of this pleasantly funky Inn. The staff was very warm and welcoming. The food was good and the prices reasonable. The fine dining side is a bit more expensive with a lovely dining room and outdoor seating as well....More

Hi Darlene, Happy Birthday! We have an in-house pastry chef . Our menu is ever changing at this time. There is always something chocolate :)
Hi I wonder if there has been a Kitchen staff change. I gave you guys a second chance and you bombed!! i ordered a steak and it came rare even though i had wanted it well. Meat preparation is a simple ( easy to do right) yet serious thing to bomb!! Did you lose your chef or quality control person?
