The Guild is an English style Freehouse located in downtown Victoria.  It's menu is distinctly British but with a twist and the craft beer menu is eclectic and always changing. 

The room looks out onto Wharf Street and is punctuated with a large bar area and despite the high ceilings has a cozy feeling. The bartenders know their stuff - just let them know what you like to drink and they will come up with something perfect. 


The Guild serves lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Their ingredients are locally sourced and the menu is described as comfort food. There are British favourites like Welsh Rarebit, Fish and Chips and on the weekends the classic English fry-up which includes a fried tomato beans and black pudding. 

The restaurant has an upstairs room that can be rented for parties, events and get-togethers. 

Nearby you can find Victoria's Inner Harbour, Waddington Alley and the soon to be demolished, Johnson Street Bridge
