My wife and I recently moved from Toronto to Victoria. I had lived here over 20 years ago and recalled that this pub was very good. I must say the pub is very clean, the staff is amazing and the ambiance is spectacular. We only...More

Pub, beer, burger - the classic combo. Unfortunately the Fernwood has no idea what a good hamburger should look like or taste. Last night's burger was served on a dry (stale) bun with a commercial meat patty (ie not prepared in house), and sparse condiments....More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We never like to hear stuff like this and we certainly didn't think you should have paid for a meal that you'd didn't enjoy. Too bad you didn't bring this up with your server or manager...More

We had lunch at the Fernwood Inn and as always, the food and the service were excellent. It's a nice restaurant/pub and the pub fares consistently exceed expectations. The prices are very reasonable and you get a full plate for you dollars.

The Fernwood Inn is the custodian of a fine evening, whatever type of hype you're looking for. Be it pub or bistro, gastro-pub if you will. The place is well layed out so that each crowd is covered. Drinks are as various as can be,...More
