About

The Cheshire Cheese Inn has provided unique neighborly gastro-pub cuisine for those in Vancouver, British Columbia dating back to 1979. The British themed décor is cozy-casual with a vibrant atmosphere. The British menu items at The Cheshire Cheese Inn (also known affectionately as "The Cheese") include all the favorites.

A few notable menu items include "Toad in the Hole", Cornish pasty, Yorkshire pudding, fish & chips, Irish stew, savory pies and bangers & mash. In addition to the regular menu, you can take a gander at the fresh seasonal "fayre" menu. The drink menu includes some imported European 20-ounce pints to complete the experience properly on your visit to The Cheshire Cheese Inn.

The Cheshire really has the feel of an English pub, and the food matches that. It's not fancy, it's not like the "gastropubs" you may have visited in London - this is the type of food that real pubs in real English cities serve up.

My wife had the chicken pie with mash. Presentation was basic, but the food was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I had the Cornish pastie with chips and beans. The content wasn't exactly as a Cornish pastie back home, but it was very tasty and it was massive! We shared a lovely dessert, and the bill was more than reasonable.

Service was great throughout. Really friendly without being overbearing.

We'll be back for sure.

Went there on a Sunday night. Might have been an off-night but the food was less than impressive. Its been better in the past so perhaps this was just a singular incident.

Very disappointed with dine out food. Especially seafood pie, not only mention it took more than ½ hour, the mash potatoes was half cold, half warm. The seafood pie was only a few salmon with mash potatoes covered on top, they should have shown salmon pie instead of seafood pie. There wasn't any having dine out menu around us, their food we're look great, especially fish and chips.
Would like to go back to try the fish and chips!

The sticky toffee pudding was disappointing and not served with promised ice cream. Server was somewhat inattentive. Regular menu was better than dine out menu. Halibut burger was good.

Steak and kidney pie, Cornish pasties, fish and chips ... all very nicely done in a comfortable homey atmosphere. Nothing fancy, nothing not to like.

I was expecting good food...but food was even better than I thought it would be. my sister and myself were definitely impressed with the "homemade" style food. We had the burger..handmade patty, very fresh bun and best chips I have had in a long time. Very pleasant server. I would definitely go back if I am in the area.

Again, a good meal at a good price. Mothers' Day dinner, not at all crowded, nice specials, good service, good food. What more could one ask?

Four of us ate at the Cheshire Cheese before a movie at the Dunbar Theatre. The seafood salad was attractively served and appeared to be good value for the price, the calamari with tzatziki was pronounced okay, my garlic and chili prawns were reasonably good but with no evidence of the cracked chilies, but the tavern salad with grilled salmon was seriously lacking. The salmon was fine but the salad itself consisted of a chunk of lettuce, one or two candied walnuts, a few matchstick-sized bits of apple, and no Stilton at all (the waitress eventually brought a tiny container with about a teaspoonful of crumbled blue cheese). I had the same salad a few months ago with much the same result but put it down to an off-day in the kitchen.

The setting does remind you of a little English pub as does the menu. My only issues were that the mash was on the dry side and their interpretation of banoffee pie was not what I would want from
Banoffee pie. The fish and chips were really good as was the toad in the hole.
