Since the Crow & Gate has a fairly limited menu - after all, it is a pub - vegetarians and those intolerant of gluten will find little, but some choice. Good weather summer is the best time to go - the seating outdoors greatly enhances the experience. The selection of beers is good, but don't overlook the fabulous Merridale Cider... More

This is my favorite place in Nanaimo for causal drinks and food with friends. Very unique you have to order food at the bar but I enjoyed every visit. Worth the trip!

We go here for lunch every time we visit Vancouver Island and it is always delicious and meets our expectations. This is the first time we have gone in the winter time so we could not go outside onto the beautiful property and eat in the gardens. Never-the-less we sat in a cozy deuce near an open fireplace. Warm and... More

Get the feel of and old english tavern in the foothills of england with a long narrow drive up to the pub. First step in the door you might think your back in the early 1900,s as the wooden floors and wooded booth's have that ancient feel. Good selection of ale's and beers but the food will take you over... More

A group of 12 showed up at the pub after a memorial service. We had people from Ottawa, Vancouver, and Victoria in our group. Everyone commented on the excellent food as well as the ambience. For me the trifle is number one! I have yet to have a bad meal nor service there! It is a great place to take... More

This place is like an English pub. You order at the counter and your food is brought to your table. The beer selection is plentiful and the food is consistently good. We usually order the beef dip and fish and chips and then share the two. It's a bit out of the way to drive to but worth it. And... More

First time going and will definitely be back. My man loved the wood stove burning and that smell of a wood fire. We both had roast beef with Yorkshire pudding it was awesome very generous portions. Lots of beer on tap. I loved the Kilkenny cream ale which I will be looking for next time I'm out.

This is a typical. English pub with all the fare and the ales. A really fun place to go with friends fiends and the outdoor picnic tables are hugely popular. The food is prepared fresh which you order at the snuff and servers bring you the food once it is prepared. Love going there with friends. Share the bread pudding... More

Cosy and warm English style pub (bar service only). Everything we tried was tasty and they have a good selection of beers. Food was great value.

Had the savory Oyster Stew and a Guinness while sitting opposite the huge fireplace on a cold day. What an experience. The staff is pleasant and the surrounding make you feel as if you've been transported back to Merry Olde England. Can't wait to return so as to be able to sample the rest of the mouth-watering menu.
