The Crow & Gate English Style Country Pub…
Join us for Good Food and Good Times!
In 1972, The Government of British Columbia introduced changes to the
beverage industry to allow neighbourhood pubs in the Province.
Jack Nash, an ex-patriot from Sussex, England, built The Crow & Gate Public House
on ten acres of scenic property in Cedar, near Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. In doing
so The Crow & Gate Pub became the first
neighbourhood pub in British Columbia. Now a well-known landmark and favourite destination for locals and tourists alike.
Construction of The Crow & Gate Pub entailed great attention to detail. Pegged beam & plaster, exposed beams, massive stonework open fireplaces, heavy wood trestle tables and, throughout, clad with authentic pub memorabilia from the U.K. all creating an ambiance only otherwise experienced if you take a trip to the South of England.
After 15 years, the Olson family took over the stewardship of The Crow & Gate – maintaining, restoring and improving the Pub to its present day splendour.
“Our decision on who served the best pub food came quickly: The Crow and Gate.” – Victoria Times Colonist
“Besides the atmosphere and ambiance, what I like about this place is the fresh and high quality food.” – Out to Lunch
