We often go “Crow & Gating” whenever we want to have a relaxing, at home evening without the fuss and the dishes. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the menu is traditional pub fare (good size portions and consistent high quality). We love going on colder evenings and sitting beside the open hearth fireplace while the summer offers the chance to sit in the beautiful garden. A great afternoon or evening getaway any time of the year!

Beautiful little pub tucked away on Vancouver Island. Friends informed us of the venue and it mostly lived up to our expectations.
Cute fireplace, decent food, and a half decent selection of beers.

Not a fan of having to stand and wait to order food and pre-pay at the till, then sit down and have food delivered. No beer menu available, had to make a quick decision after waitress informed us of what is on tap.

Long table in the fireplace room is annoying to sit in for tall people, crunched against the wall and everyone has to get up and move to let someone in or out.

Come for the atmosphere, and arrive early for lunch or you’ll be standing and waiting to order and get poor seats.

Beautiful venue and an enticing English pub adventure always awaits us here. Order ahead if you want the steak and kidney pie, or step inside, grab a few drinks at the bar and decided between yummy chowders, Pan fried oysters, burgers, traditional pub fare, and more. A drink, snack, or meal here comes highly recommended!

cosy, pub indoor seating and roomy, beautiful outdoor seating for the best steak pies you can get any where. Don't just eat. Walk the grounds for the flowers, duck lagoons and rolling fields

A classic place, we have been visiting since the 1970s
Busy, but there are several small rooms to make it feel more intimate space.

They have a selection of UK beer, and the menu is British pub food.
