Rustic Charm abounds at the 17 Mile Pub in Sooke
January 3, 2008 | Pam Grant - Times Colonist

Rustic charm abounds at this landmark on Sooke Road, which has served as an inn, a school and a venue for religious services before its present incarnation as a pub and restaurant.

A distinctive tiled floor in the front half of the building leads to the various rooms on the main floor. Whether you crave an evening with friends in the games room, a seat by the fire or a quieter spot overlooking the garden, this is a good place to stop for generous portions of pub grub.

An icy beer on the patio offers a pleasant diversion from the nearby Galloping Goose Trail in the summer.
