When we arrived our server was quick and responsive...not an empty glass or cup in the group. It was a very busy day as a few events were... More

Came here with friends on our pub crawl in Victoria and this was our last stop. Comfy seats and service was great! Bartender even recommended some great place nearby that opens later as it was a Wednesday night and majority of the places were closing at 1 AM. Will definitely come back!

This is a great pub! My husband and I went here for the first time on a visit to Victoria and really enjoyed it. They have a great beer selection...soooo many on tap! The service was wonderful and extremely knowledgable. We will definitely go back on our next visit.

On a recent trip to Victoria, I meet up with friends at Garrick's Head Pub. We had a few drinks and ordered some food. We all enjoyed our meals. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Stopped by the Garrick's Head late to grab a beer. The bartender was very knowledgable and helpful with the numerous beers on tap. Not sure how many beers they have but must be near 75. She answered my questions and then served me exactly what I was looking for

Great pub w an amazing assortment of beer! The waitress was quite knowledgeable and friendly. Chips and salsa and beer, lovely afternoon break from shopping. The food that was being delivered around us looked quite delicious.

I have been visiting The Garrick`s Head since 2004 or 2006 when I first tasted the Poutine here. Absolutely perfect. Over the Years the Bar area has been enlarged and, although worried this might have meant other changes, I am happy to say that the quality of food has remained as good as ever. I visit Vancouver and Victoria most... More

If you come to Bath and are not looking for the regular tourists happy meal you will like it. While you enjoy a good beer you may have the best roast in town. Sundays only. I got to share one with my wife and it was great. Ice cream was good too. The price is a little high for other... More
