What a fantastic stop over for lunch on our circuit from Victoria, through to Duncan and back. Delicious burgers, good atmosphere and great local selection of beer. Mushroom burger was totally different to any patty I've had before. Thumbs up! Now off to see the tallest gnarlishest and loneliest trees in the world!

On a very rainy Port Renfrew kind of day to enter the pub and be seated near the most welcoming log burning stove was just the best . Our waiter was so prompt and greeted us just as warmly as the fire itself ! He guided us with the different lagers and beers the pub had to offer and his... More

My boyfriend and I ate at the Renfrew Pub a few days ago. Our waiter was excellent! He put the Habs game on the tv for us and made good beer suggestions. The food was so good. I had the veggie burger and it was honestly the best one I've ever eaten. My boyfriend had the ribs and raves about... More

I drove the "circle route;" Victoria - Duncan - Port Renfrew - Victoria. After a 2.5 hike I discovered the Renfrew hotel and its pub. You never know what you are going to get in these far away places. It is either going to be really good or really bad..... I was by myself and just ordered beer, soup and... More

Nice little Hotel/Pub. Good food, good service. Visited Port Renfrew for the first time and will definitely go back to this pub for our meals. Love the location, right on the harbour.

It might have been the fresh air, it might have been the exercise, it might have been the shared atmosphere of fellow adventurers.... this is the perfect watering hole after a day in the woods or on the beach. Do it.

We've been coming here for years and have seen many changes with the new owner. Service is way better with all the staff (although Heather has always been great), have better variety of beers and ciders, which is great. Food is very good. Biggest issue is menu is just too small and not enough variety, has also become quite expensive.... More

Stopped here for brunch and was delighted by their signature dish, the Benny Bowl. Who can argue with smoked salmon& poached eggs atop fingerling potatoes and bernaise sauce? Throw a little sriracha on top and bingo! It's a gourmet breakfast out there in Wild BC! Rustic setting, warm fire, good hot coffee with a little something in it. Great way... More

We arrived after a drive from Langfort on a slippery two lane road and decided to have a late lunch there. We were escorted to a table and shortly after the menus arrived. We ordered coffee and looked over the whole menu. We ordered the chowder, a side of garlic toast and a single haddock and chips. It arrived in... More

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.
