Imagine it’s 1894,
and you are nearing the end of a long days journey on the road to Leech Town to check your gold claim. As you round the bend, dusk is settling in. Tired and dusty, your horse the same, the lanterns of the 17 Mile House welcomes you.
Fast forward over 100 years
and a traveller on the same road, now Sooke Road, can also look forward to the hospitality around the bend. Changes have been made, but The 17 Mile House, seventeen miles from Victoria City Hall, has retained its yesteryear charm. There is even a hitching post and a visitor arriving by horseback.
Creative Westcoast fare, local seafood and our weekly fresh sheet specials are served for lunch and dinner, and can be enjoyed in the bay window overlooking the pub garden, or in front of a crackling fire. Our soups and famous seafood chowder, are made daily and all entrees are made to order.
Guests can enjoy a game of chess, crib or darts!
Even if the road to Sooke no longer leads to a wealth of gold, it still takes you to the 17 Mile House, a cozy olde English pub where old friends have gathered and new friends have met for over 100 years.
Kids at the pub
Children under the age of 19 are welcome in the 17 Mile House Pub until 9pm. All minors must be accompanied by an adult. While children and youth are not allowed to sit at the bar, they tend to have a great time exploring our outdoor facilities.
Shooter the Cat
Ten years ago he showed up looking for food. After the delicious meal we fed him, he refused to leave and he’s lived here ever since. Now Shooter is the most asked about figure at the 17 Mile House Pub!
