Met two old friends from Victoria today for lunch at my favourite, the CROW & GATE PUB in Cedar just south of Nanaimo. I arrived at 1115 and there were already 10 cars in the parking lot. By 1145 the Pub was nearly full. On a Tuesday in October. And it’s out in the country, not really handy. But is us quite delightful.
A trio of beef Dips were the choice at our table. In my opinion they serve the BEST Beef Dip, period. And it is a generous portion of sliced beef. No deep fryer here so the sandwich comes with a scoop of really good potato salad and a small green salad with their delicious house dressing. And Beer. It was National Beer Day after all.
Because of Covid regulations the CROW & GATE PUB now has table service. No lining up at the bar to order.
Service was prompt and friendly as always. As we were leaving one of the staff remembered me by name. Nice touch.
Too bad it’s a 50 minute drive from home otherwise I’d be there at least once a week.
If you have not been to the CROW & GATE PUB and like pub lunches this must be on your ‘Giddy Up’ list.
