Diner Reviews
  • "Good beer list with rotating drafts. Lots of factory beer, but enough micros to keep a regular happy. Bar food is adequate. Staff and service is top notch."

  • ""We love the cozy feel of this place. We definitely would return to try more dishes. The turkey club wrap was amazing and the daily soup special delicious. Vegetable salad with steak add on very delicious and satisfying Service was well-timed and friendly. A great time was had by all."

  • "As one of only 2 Pubs in Oak Bay the Penny Farthing gets it's fair share of customers just because they are the closest thing to home. I have been many times and had wonderful meals (one of the best Lamb plates ever) and average Pub fare other times. The servers are young and often forgetful depending on when you go and who you get. In general the busier they are the worse the service becomes. With the prices being what they are (over$8 for an imported Pint!) and a menu that isn't cheap, I guess I expect things to be a little bit more consistent. My best experience has been going in for an early Dinner and sticking with the specials which are different every day. If you drink locally brewed beer the prices are much more reasonable as well."

  • "Great neighborhood pub, casual, relaxed atmosphere. Here for the Shepards Pie special this day, well prepared, tasty, little light on the fixins beyond the potato topping. Nice list of local and import beers to complement your meal. Great service, friendly. Worth another visit next time in the area."

  • "We were meeting friends who had appointments to follow and were thus favourably impressed with the service and food. Our server Brittany, was both pleasant, polite and efficient. A very nice young lady who contributed to our overall very positive impression of your establishment. Serving of wine could use a touch of experience. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you."
