Make a meal in our bistro the centerpiece of your Merridale tour experience, or pencil us in as your regular lunch stop as you travel up or down Vancouver Island - either way, we’ll make sure your visit is tasty and unique! Our menu evolves with the seasons and is inspired by nearby Cowichan Valley farmers, vintners, and cheese-makers. On our large restaurant patio overlooking the orchard, you will find plenty of room to sit with friends, sample ciders, cocktails, and craft beer and local wines made by our neighbouring friends. If you prefer to be seated indoors, our spacious tables are situated around a traditional fieldstone fireplace, and the tasting bar is mere steps away − perfect for a drink and some conversation while your lunch is being prepared. As you enjoy your meal, experience a Merridale cider, cocktail or brandy flight at your table. These flights are designed to introduce you to the rich range of craft ciders and spirits made on site at Merridale.

After lunch, we invite you to stroll down to the orchard pond, a romantic conversation spot that also serves as the location of many Vancouver Island wedding ceremonies.
