A nicely laid out and wooden Scottish pub. The typical macros with a few locals. No flights and nothing really worth while. With so many options within blocks, unless you are with people who want that type of environment, there is little point.

Beautifully set up, though with a rather commercial feel and definitely a tourist trap. Taplist is weak, with a drinkable locals, but they don’t have the more interesting taps in town. Prices are on the high side. Wouldn’t recommend this place.

Definitely one of the most striking pubs I’ve ever visited. It looks a like a bank or a posh steakhouse in a former life. They do have a lot of taps but they’re mainly of the Canadian BMC variety and the prices aren’t great. Still it does have a great atmosphere.

Owned by the same people that have Irish Times (2 blocks away) and the Penny Farthing (Oak Bay) in their portfolio. The building is magnificent and nicely renovated - lots of snugs and hidden locations, like the back patio off the upper level. The food is well done, like Irish Times, but somewhat overpriced. Expensive pints. Totally a tourist location.

Interesting bar, a bit over the top regarding decoration. Service was very much to the point, no time to spend with the Customer despite the bar being quiet. Tried to sell us Molsen even though we were after local beers. Over hyped and over priced...avoid...

Located in the touristy downtown area. Lots of seating and taps. Taps run the same on both sides. 2 levels which is nice. Quite a few B.C. beers on tap, and lots of generic crowd pleasers as well. The food was very good. I had the club sandwich, my fiancee had the clam chowder. Service was great both times we were there and they seem to employ only the best looking girls in Victoria. Good place for a stop.

Cool theme for a bar! The place was jam-packed when we visited, but service was still spot-on. Decent-enough tap selection, with a "house brew"made by Phillips. Didn’t try the food.

What a great Scottish pub the look of the pub was that of an old Bank. I found out this was a bank fro 130 years then it left and the pub opened up. The old look has been freshened up and it looks awesome the wood work and glass was spectacular. Over 30 taps and they where mostly all Canadian craft beers mixed with some Guinness and other awesome macros. We had some food and that was also very good the service was also just as good. We got a great Bartender and he knew the beer and was able to show me some great brews. This is a great place and if you miss this one just a few feet down the road are 2 others that have the same feel just different styles Irish and British. Great times…
