So after our first fishing sojourn of 2021 just south of Nanaimo the boys were really hungry so we decided to exit the back country and invade civilized society; our initial target was the very well known Crow & Gate pub/dining establishment in Cedar but we were in no mood to wait the 45 minutes to be seated - that place was PACKED.
So we opted to backtrack about 5 minutes up the road and were we ever glad we did; we found an excellent neighborhood pub called the Wheatsheaf Pub - wowza! Excellent and very tasty food, nice atmosphere and relatively inexpensive.
Basically if you look at a map of the Nanaimo region its south of the city directly opposite the Cinnabar Valley across the island highway, on Cedar Rd in Cedar proper.
Interestingly its the first pub/restaurant I have been to since Covid where social distancing included ensuring parties were seated at least one seat away even from the rest of your party so in our case the four of us were seated at a table set for six people. Awesome wIngs.....!
If you need to get out from between your four walls for some 'sane' sanity time, and are ok driving for an hour this one is well worth the effort IMO. Its not remotely fancy - we were still in our fishing gear and fit right in - but in my experience those are by far the best places for really good grub and a cold grog....
