The restaurant has a welcoming ambiente with big windows (even if they overlook the grocery store) and enough room between the tables. The menu has a good selection, but very few vegetarian options. No surprises here. Of course the main attraction is the home brew beer. We had a very tasty nacho platter for starters. My NY steak was on... More

Czech pilsner, a Brewmaster salad, can't be a better place to watch the hockey game. A reliably great pub, with better quality meals than many - most if not all - Nanaimo pubs. The staff at the Longwood are professional and attentive too. Quality operation and an example for the other pub operators to follow.

Restaurant staff was friendly, and service was fast. We enjoyed our food- pub style fair. Portion sizes were big for kids meals, and they offered various gulten free selections. My husband enjoyed the beer and with a there was a full size drink menu to choose from for myself.

I love a nice creamy and cheesy pasta. It's comfort food at its best so I ordered the Pasta Carbonara and really enjoyed it. Done just right with tender chicken, creamy sauce, Parmesan cheese..oh and bacon of course! My husband had the Pot Pie which came with french fries well seasoned and crispy. I know that these are not complicated... More

Visited the Longwood today for lunch. We've been before and it's often busy and understaffed. Today however, it was not busy at all. We were sat relatively quickly near a window. As we were waiting for our drinks I noticed two very large ants on the windowsill. I took my cloth napkin and killed them. When the server came back... More

We've been here quite a few times, so there's clearly factors that bring us back. When meeting friends from out of town, the location is easy enough to explain. That's good. There's easy and plentiful parking. The rooms, both restaurant and pub have a pleasant décor. The staff is always courteous and efficient. And, of course, the beer is pretty... More
