Ross Bay Pub

We are a locally owned and operated public house in the Fairfield neighbourhood of Victoria, BC. We offer all major sporting events on the big screen including Canucks games, Keno and pull tabs. We invite you to join us and enjoy some of our craft beers or choose something to your liking from our local and international wine list.


We offer all major sporting events on the big screen including Canucks games, Keno, Texas Holdem and pull tabs.

Keno was invented some 3000 years ago by Cheung Leung, a ruler of the great Han Dynasty. The game was based on a popular poem at the time, "The Thousand Character Classic."


This poem was, and is today, a popular way for people to learn how to count, using one thousand Chinese symbols, none of them repeating itself.

The Bent Mast


Monday - Saturday: 12pm-2am
Sunday: 12pm-12am

 Call us AT:


Founded in 1995. The Bent Mast is conveniently located in the heart of James Bay, steps away from the inner harbour. We offer a selection of preservative free, local craft beers, coupled with amazing food.


Construction began in 1884 - forty years after the first settlers arrived in Victoria.  The House was a year old when the "last spike" of the Trans Canada Railroad was pounded in and it was in existence during the second Louis Riel Rebellion.

John Chandler, an accountant for the Hudson's Bay Company, had The House built for his wife Lizzie. A year after construction was completed, the Chandler's moved out. There are differing stories as to why they moved: taunting from the small boys, stolen chickens, a small pox scare... The story which we like is that Lizzie did not like that the kitchen was in the basement at the back of The House.

Between the bar and the main dining room is an opening in the wall which exposes the old timbers of The House.  The stair-rail was brought in by steam ship from California.

The House was a brothel in subsequent years, with it being so close to the docks. And in the years leading up to its incarnation as a restaurant, The house has been a room house, the derelict, then infested with drunks and drug addicts. The upstairs of the first restaurant ( there have been four before The Bent Mast) was used as an erotic art gallery.

Jerry Seto and Kate Thomson opened The Bent Mast together in 1995. After an enigmatic fifteen years of co-ownership, Jerry passed away suddenly on December 30th, 2010. Ownership has since stayed in the family. We feel that Jerry has never really left the home that he loved, and that he still resides here,
There are supposedly at least three spirits residing in The House. A happy child who stays on the stairway and upstairs. A cranky, old man who started in the basement of The House but has since moved on to the kitchen.  He has been quite mischievous, knocking things over or hiding the odd item. He has also been spotted upstairs. The third is the most encompassing: an elderly, motherly woman who started on the stairwell and upstairs, and since spread throughout the main floor, especially the bar area. She is the one who gives The House its nurturing, compassionate and caring feeling.

Garrick's Head Pub

Image result for Garrick's Head Pub
Nestled in Victoria’s beautiful and historic Bastion Square, Garrick's Head Pub has been a local fixture since 1867, in the days when Judge Matthew Begbie presided over the local court house.

Simply put, we are one of the oldest English pubs in Canada and maintain Victoria’s largest selection of craft and import beers on tap. If you’re hungry, we offer traditional English pub fare in a bright and relaxing atmosphere. Customers are welcome to linger around our wood-burning fireplace to warm away the cool days and nights. As of 2012, our newly expanded front room offers ample space for dining and socializing and in the warmer months, our outdoor patio seating, overlooking the square, is a fantastic spot to enjoy the sun and to watch the crowds go by.

Open 11am Daily

A Fine Place for a Final Meal.

Before housing the BC Maritime Museum, the large building across from Garrick's Head in Bastion Square was Victoria's first courthouse. In those early days, Judge Matthew Baillie Begbie presided over Victoria's rowdy mining labour force as our city scraped its way into civilized existence.

Early Victoria had its fair share of murderers and so Begbie handed out a healthy portion of sentences with a noose attached to them. Despite his nickname "The Hanging Judge," and what many folk tales of early Victoria profess, Begbie was not fond of delivering death sentences.

A tower of a man (6'7!), Begbie apparently awarded those awaiting the noose with a final meal at the local watering hole, the Garrick's Head Saloon. It was commonplace for eager patrons to down a pint before heading over to the city’s gallows to watch a public hanging. There are a couple of ghosts among the pub’s regular clientele and one of these lost souls can be seen by the fireplace on chilly winter nights. According to local legend, this is the ghost of former owner Michael Powers who was mysteriously murdered early one morning over 100 years ago...

Tales of Murder in Victoria, BC.

The Garrick's Head Saloon (the pub's previous incarnation) opened on December 31, 1867 and lasted until 1914. Owner Mike Powers purchased it in 1899 after selling the Brown Jug Saloon.

"It was about 3am on Sunday morning October 1, 1899 as Mike stooped to unlatch his front gate that something struck him from behind. A towel wrapped around five pounds of sand caught Mike on the back of his neck and upon contact split open, drenching him with its dusty contents. City police later learned that Powers' attackers were two people, one possibly a woman dressed as a man. It was the male attacker who apparantly wielded the sandbag after which in a frenzy rage, he proceeded to kick Mr Powers into oblivion."

Powers died four days later at the Jubilee Hospital from a ruptured liver. The attackers were never found and brought to justice. The motive was not robbery but was suspected that a previous wife and her lover decided to demonstrate their hatred of Mr. Powers.

[From: Mike Powers Wouldn't Talk by Cecil Clark and published in the Islander Magazine, Pages 7-8, The Daily Colonist January 23, 1972.]

More Room. More Beer.

After over 125 years serving ale and food to Victoria patrons, Garrick's Head was presented with an opportunity to expand in the fall of 2012.

The space between the old pub and Government St. became available and the pub's owners decided that Victoria was ready for both more space and many more beer taps. After months of planning and licensing meetings with the City of Victoria, Garrick's Head opened its brand new Government St. doors in November of 2012. The high visibility pub front on one of Victoria's busiest streets has resulted in a lot more exposure to tourists and also craft-beer-hungry locals. The increase in size also allowed Garrick's to add draught lines, expanding their craft beer tap selection to the largest on Vancouver Island – if craft beer is your drink of choice, then Garrick's Head is a safe bet for you.

Apparently, We're Quite The Looker!

Over our 125+ years as a pub, Garrick's Head has seen many variations on our logo and style. Without a doubt, the elk head coat of arms mounted above our fireplace in the old pub is the root of all of our iconography; despite its foggy origins and backstory, this same imagery was used on the hanging tavern sign and also our windows.


Local And Proud

Victoria is the cradle of the craft beer revolution and with the quality selection of local breweries, we are proud to serve the largest selection of craft beer on Vancouver Island. We keep all our local breweries on tap and feature a wide variety of craft beer from Vancouver and across the rest of the province.

Local Breweries on Tap:

Pub manager Jay Nowak started in 1999 in the kitchen, cooking up classic Garrick’s Head burgers. He eventually moved behind the bar in 2000, pulling draft from the 10 taps that were then on hand. In those days, the pub poured a hell of a lot of Guinness and Okanagan Pale Ale.

Ever quick to support the local beer community, Garrick’s Head was the first place in Victoria that had both Phillips and Vancouver Island Brewery on tap. By 2002, Nowak had assumed managerial control of Garrick’s and was taking on all manner of quality BC craft beer.

The next decade saw craft beer boom not just across BC, but in our own backyard. All Victoria breweries have been embraced with open arms at Garrick’s Head, with Nowak and his team refining the selection and always aiming to bring simply the finest ale to Victoria patrons.

Over the years, this has often meant embracing our neighbours to the south, with Garrick’s Head being the first Victoria pub to put US breweries like Rogue and Ninkasi on tap. With 2012’s expansion, Garrick's Head anticipated Victoria’s appetite for craft beer and thus doubled the taps, eventually bumping the total number of lines to 55, with more to come!

Needless to say, Garrick’s Head Pub is ground zero for craft beer enthusiasts in Victoria; exclusive taps, one off casks and beer launch events are commonplace here. As Nowak prepares to open The Churchill – a sister location next door to Garrick’s – he is as involved as he’s ever been in Victoria's craft beer community. In 2013, he co-founded the Victoria Beer Week Society, which launched their inaugural event in March of 2014 to overwhelming success.

As the BC craft beer landscape continues to grow, pubs like Garrick's Head are vital meeting grounds for beer enthusiasts alike – simply put, if you love good quality craft beer, you need to experience Garrick’s Head Pub.

5.4% Alc



Established in 1989, our on-site brewery is rightly proud of its award winning beers. We brew a wide selection of British-style ales and German and Canadian beers that are created with old-world care and without compromise. No syrups, sugars or "adjunct" are used in our 100 percent grain mashes—only barley and wheat malts, plus oatmeal in our special stout. All of our specialty malts are imported from the UK, as is our unique strain of yeast. The ales are naturally carbonated and left to settle or "fine" at cold temperatures, rather than being filtered. Filtration can remove much of the goodness from beer along with the haze. Another negative practice our Brewer avoids is pasteurization. Our natural and healthy brews are more lightly carbonated than the factory product, and served at a palatable 45 degrees F to bring out the fullness of the flavour for which we strive.

Meet our Brewmaster, Andrew Tessier


Swans Beers are served on tap in our award winning Brewpub. Our hearty brews are also bottled in distinctive 650 ml bottles and sold in our own Beer & Liquor Store




Swans Brewery has been awarded 31 awards to date from the Canadian Brewing Awards

(CBA) in the past 11 years including "Brewpub of the Year" on 2006.

Family tradition returns to Saanich neighbourhood

New bistro seen as a gathering spot for residents and college students

Darron Kloster, Times Colonist

Published: Saturday, August 21, 2010

A family with a long history in the city's hospitality industry is turning a tired corner store property along the busy Shelbourne corridor into a smart neighbourhood bistro.

Brothers Adam and Michael Helm along with partner Cole Byers have spent months gutting and remodelling the former Tan's Market on Shelbourne Street at McRae Aveune.

They plan to open McRae's -- serving West Coast pub-style fare with local beers and wines -- sometime in the next week.

"We get tons of people stopping by asking what we're doing, when we're going to open," said Adam Helm. "We think it's a great spot and something that's really needed here."

The partners say McRae's fills a void along one of the region's busiest thoroughfares, catering not only to the neighbourhoods between Hillside mall and Shelbourne Plaza, but to students at nearby Camosun College as well as the University of Victoria.

The Helm family are no strangers to the area -- or the industry. Their father, Lyndon Helm, built Maude Hunter's Pub further up Shelbourne and later Christie's Carriage House in the Jubilee neighbourhood, where both Adam and Michael cut their teeth in the business washing dishes. Their grandfather, Albert Eudoris Helm, was the founder of the enduring Helm's Inn at the gate to Beacon Hill Park.

All three businesses remain going concerns -- some would say institutions, although the family has divested its interests. Lyndon also founded Saanich Rentals, carving off some of the property to build Maude Hunter's in 1982.

The Helms were also raised just up the street on the slope of Mount Tolmie, where the family has lived for 39 years.

"I am very proud of what the boys are doing," said Lyndon. "This is their project, their idea and I think it's a good one. They worked their up at Christie's, went and did their own things for a while and have come back full circle to do what they really know and love."

The move to food and beverage was a natural shift for the brothers. Adam, 32, and Michael, 27, had operated a u-brew business on Interurban, taking Brew Works out of receivership in 2007 and turning a profit within a few months. They sold it recently to qualify for a food primary liquor licence at McRae's, which is expected to be approved in the coming days.

They've had their eye on the property for years, and grabbed the lease when a plant nursery and cafe ended a brief stint at the site late last year.

Byers, a towering former professional hockey player and friend of the Helms, joined them as a partner after surveying the site.

"I came over here one night about midnight and just walked around and thought 'this is perfect,'" said Byers, 27, a Nipawin, Sask., native who played with the Notre Dame Hounds and Mooose Jaw Warriors before embarking on a six-year pro career -- mostly in Europe. He retired after a season with the Victoria Salmon Kings and is the cousin of long-time Boston Bruins tough guy Lyndon Byers and has a younger brother, Dane, in the New York
