Where else can you order from a gourmet menu in the heart of a working cider farm? We are as passionate about fresh local food as we are about cider, so join us for an intimate meal or a special event in the gastropub (formerly the bistro), praised by EAT Magazine as “a gem that should be unearthed any month of the year”. The pub menu reflects the seasonal bounties of Vancouver Island, with fresh local ingredients lovingly prepared by our superb culinary staff. Allow your server to suggest the ideal pairing to compliment the flavours of your meal, whether it be homegrown farmhouse cider or a drink from our outstanding selection of fine wines and spirits.
Overlooking the pond and orchard meadows, our gastropub is open 7 days a week and offers a relaxed dining atmosphere in a stunning country location for lunch. Ask about our seasonal brunch and happy hour services, or visit us on summer Sundays for pizza night with live entertainment! In the shoulder seasons, we host themed dinners as well. Contact us to inquire about hosting your next event or celebration at Merridale.
Ask us about our house-made specialties, like cider-leavened bread and fresh pastries that are baked in our wood-fire oven and served warm, or any of our sweet and savoury preserves made on-site!
