We saw three men walking down an alley and saw them enter the pub, as we were walking around downtown. We decided to go check it out and were pleasantly surprised.

Had lunch with family. Meals were excellent. Parking is not great but that is Nanaimo. Staff was very helpful and attentive. Very clean. Definitely will return. Menu specials as well as regular items. All were excellent - fish and chips; pork loin; butter chicken; and linguine.

My husband and I love this place, great staff and great food. Definitely a pub/restaurant atmosphere, but have lots of big screen TVs and all sports all day long. We go at least once a week on their 1/2 price menu days, tuesday and thursdays. Try the Steak and Prawn Wok Bowl-amazing!

We would have missed this great place had it not been for strangers pointing it out to us. The beer selection was very good and the food very very tasty. It was half price night so we really got an awesome deal!!!! The atmosphere was up beat and fun, service was excellent.

This is a really neat building. Would be a great place to go watch the game. The food was good and the beer was cold which is what you want in a pub!

We have a group that meets here every Thursday for drinks and dinner. The kitchen is very good, we haven't had anything we haven't liked and the entire menu is half priced on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Nice selection of wines and beers on tap and not overpriced

The name alone draws you in, especially when it used to be the railway station. The inside had great tall ceilings where you can imagine what it once used to be. The food and service was very good
