We have been going for months to this Pub. The menu had now been totally reduced and prices went up. Not sure if we will be returning.

Quite a good reproduction of a dark, woody olde English pub. Big portions and good service. Live music on Sundays is always good. A Campbell River tradition. I recommend it for a good pub experience.

The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. The fish and chips were perfect, and were the best I've had since Hammond's closed so long ago. The staff was friendly, but a little slow offering me a second beer. However. It was really busy and not the servers fault at all. Probably a little understaffed at that moment. I really love this...

We were wanting a pub meal - with a pint of Stella of course - and stopped in to the Royal Coachman. Hey, a Ploughman's Lunch. We ordered it, with a basket of fries, and it was great. Well presented, fresh and flavorful. The service was polite and friendly. Check out this comfortable, old-school, neighborhood pub.

Stopped in a couple of times to meet some work colleagues for a "Christmas Season" pint and some grub. The serving staff was very attentive and didn't let my glass get too low before offering up another. Also the food was very good and we did not wait long. Calamari said it was "strips" however it was the traditional "rings"... More

I was on the prowl for a caterer to an upcoming event and thought I would catch the coachmen for dinner......around 5 pm.....it was not crowded...with about 6 or so others in the pub/dining room. The decor is tired and run down....badly in need of renos....but... More

Coachman is an institution in Campbell River. I always enjoy my food and beer here. Not a very interesting menu and cooking, but the service and ambience makes it well worth a visit.

The ambiance of this Pub is very "Old World" the decor is in keeping with the theme. I found the food to be good, and well priced. The service was efficient. I would go back.

This used to be one of the best restaurants in Campbell River. In the past couple of years it has gone completely downhill. My favourite item on the menu was the Thai chicken salad, as it was to die for. Not anymore. My salad tonight was soggy, had poor quality lettuce with hard, cold chicken that seemed to be a... More
