Been going for years. Time to step it up here Fernwood Inn. After all, you do have the responsibility of residing in the square, in the heart of one of Vic's funkiest, creative, hip neighbourhoods.
Food has been good, and has just a few times changed, but needs some passion, creativity, and quality upgrading. I realise you dip into slightly...responsible and healthy menu/ingredient choices, but how about an entire commitment to ingredients that are local/organic/responsible/sustainable/healthy?? Really, to be the main establishment in Fernwood and not serving up wicked organic salads, local/sustainable seafood, island raised crap-free ethical happy meat, organic egg breakfast/brunches, and a good selection of local microbrews, spirits and wines...is fairly lame. Sorry. Step it up.
Ethical and healthy meat is an easy and big step. So are vegetables..especially around Fernwood.
Fernwood lager is an embarrassment. The rest of the selection is rather poor, with some of your main selections from Vancouver... and I dare to mention mass-produced molson/labatt beer?
Victoria is screaming with micro-brews these days.
C'mon guys, I want to frequent this great pub location, but will continue to visit not so often if you keep up the neutal effort.
