The Snug in Oak Bay was the first of Victoria’s many traditional neighborhood pubs, and has been given a new lease on life—not to mention a major makeover—in the recently rebuilt Oak Bay Beach Hotel. The owners have preserved the feel of the original pub, although the new version is bigger, brighter, and much less shabby. It still has the Tudor-esque plaster-and-lathe walls, though, and the old stained--glass windows at the entrance. You can expect all the classic pub favorites, like burgers, nachos and fish and chips, as well as an all-day traditional English breakfast, and, of course a decent selection of beer and wine. Although it’s located in a resort hotel, it’s still very much a locals’ hangout, so you’ll be mingling with Victorians who’ll be happy to tell you about their favorite things to see and do.
