Port Renfrew Pub Gets Gluten-Free Right!

A day trip to beautiful Port Renfrew last week allowed for an unexpected discovery!  Renfrew Pub at Wild Renfrew, a resort style destination just a 1.75 hour drive from Victoria,  gets gluten-free right!

Renfrew Pub

  • From Renfrew Pub’s Website, “The Renfrew Pub is the homey gathering place for locals and visitors at the heart of Snuggery Cove. Friendly and inviting, it’s the sort of place even first-timers swear they’ve been before. The waterfront pub and restaurant occupies an enviable spot, right next to the dock. There isn’t a bad seat in this house. This is the spot to shed your shoes, grab a pint or glass of white, and enjoy a natter with friends. Don’t be surprised to see an eagle cruising overhead or a curious harbour seal popping up in the inlet to say hello.”

Renfrew PubSeated with a front-row view of Snuggery Cove, we were provided with a menu of gluten-free notated menu with considered, celiac-safe options:

  • Seasonal House Salad
  • Prawn Tacos
  • Grilled Sockeye Salmon Burger
  • Sausage Bolognese on Gluten-Free Pasta
  • Gluten-Free Linguini with Manilla Clams & White Sauce
  • Salmon, Sweet Pea and Bacon Risotto
  • BBQ Baby Back Pork Ribs
  • Baseball Cut Reserve Angus Sirloin
  • See Renfrew Pub Menu

Service by Nanci was excellent! She knew the menu inside and out and even volunteered that Renfrew Pub serves (truly) Gluten-Free Beer Forager by Whistler Beer. Bravo!

(Note shared deep fryer.) When asked, Nanci dashed to let the kitchen know that my salmon burger should be served on a plate instead of the standard cutting board presentation.  

The scenery we enjoyed on the patio was testimony to Wild Renfrew’s commitment to Wild Within Reach. If you are gluten-free (or not) be sure to stop in the next time you make your way to the wildest west coast.
