A little noisy on Saturday evening, but fun. Great staff. Good food. I ordered vegan and staff were most willing to modify menu items for me. Doors were open - a little chilly, but staff offered blankets without our asking.

Had a nice meal here and great atmosphere. Close enough to the marinas to walk. Fish and chips were good as well as the burger. Would have liked a better beer selectiom.

We had the salmon burgers and salad which were great. Would've had a burger but Canadians have some stupid law that doesn't allow burgers to be cooked less than well done. Great beers, great staff.

A large group can be better served with complete plans between pub and tour directors. Also check out many great stopping points on road from Cowichan Lake to Port Renfrew

Yes! Our license allows for kids in all areas of the Pub until 10:00 pm, and we also have a "Restaurant" side that is quieter and family friendly at all hours.

Description
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. 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. Chickens are roasted daily on site; sauces and gravies are built from scratch. 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 breakfast (weekends), 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.
