Set in a Traditional British Seaside Restaurant it's Like Going to Britain Without the Airfare
A Restaurant for over 20 years it became the British Bobby in 2003. British owned it changed hands to a Canadian couple in 2007 until the current owners Mary & John St. John took it over on June 1st 2013. Back to it’s Original British Roots, John & Mary (ex-restaurant owners in England) revamped the menu to recreate the authentic tastes of all your British Favourites
When you think of British Food no doubt 'Fish & Chips' is the first thing that comes to mind, and we are often told by our customers that our 's are the best they have ever tasted! To ensure quality we use only premium Halibut and Cod and cut our Chips fresh every day... making sure that the taste and crispness are the perfection this Historic British Classic Deserves.
After seeing our extensive Menu, everything you say will be taken down and can be served against you!
"We have tried just about every place on Vancouver island for fish and chips.This one is not to be missed. I would rank this one the best on the Island.
We had halibut and chips, it comes with a light batter on the very fresh fish. The chips were made crisp and tasted like potatoes not the grease. The coleslaw was home made and not soupy. I think the tarter was made here also.
It is a busy spot with many english nicknack to keep you eyes busy. It felt we have dropped into Cornation Street. Definitely worth the drive " Visited February 2015

Had a wonderful lunch with two very dear friends at this very "British ' style restaurant! The food was absolutely delicious, and the friendly service we received was most delightful! For a real taste of "Jolly Olde England" I highly recommend this unique restaurant. Will be back for sure!
This place is a total collection of English life. Walls covered with photos, Royal and Titanic info, photos of famous Brits, beer, tea, coffee mugs. 1960's music plays in the background and the food is high quality.
The British Bobby has recently been taken over by folks who know what fish and chips should really taste like, and if you love mushy peas... well they have those too. You will be overwhelmed by the British memorabilia which gives you plenty to look at. We will definitely be going again, and again... and maybe again after that. :)

The British Bobby Guarantee
“I think it's true what they say about mass consciousness, as on certain days it's as if lots of people get tuned into the same vibration. We don't sell a item for a week, then suddenly we sell a dozen in one day, one minute it's dead quite, the next people all flock in at the same time. I think “did a bus just pull in?” We truly become as 'fast food' restaurant then... 0 to 60 in ten minutes, and of course most of them want their food at the same time. This then put's a strain of everyone, customers and staff included.
But then with a little patience and understanding things usually sort themselves out. Here at The British Bobby we really do care, and we love to give you the best in food and service. But we are only human and sometimes things get out of our control, (equipment brakes down, they send the wrong fish or a member of staff can't make it in.) So if everything is not to your satisfaction, please tell us immediately, so that we can fix it there and then.”

“British Bobby , has it all! Best fish n chips and the decor is outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 19 October 2015
There are few places that can top the friendly service , charming owners,hand made food, and the decor for British style decor is the amazing. I would go there just to 'immerse', in the environment. But having said that, seriously, the fries are sumptuous. The flavors of the curry and other British foods are top shelf. Their food is always consistent. The new renos and expansion , make it feel like a mini holiday . This experience, Is a Wow.

Well, here we go again, the Summer season
is upon us.
We truly want the best for our customers and we
are always working on ways to make your visit more
enjoyable. This year we have introduced a new
Traffic Light waiting time guide.
Although we doubled in size last year we still only
have the original small kitchen, which means when
we are busy we are limited to how much we can do
at a time. We will never precook orders or reheat
food items, it's just not the way we work... everything we serve is made to order by myself or my son Micheal to ensure the best quality and that's the reason we are so busy. So during the busy periods, please let your server know if you are in a rush, otherwise be patient and relax, chat, play darts or chess and be sure to let us know if there is anything else you need. We hope this new system will be helpful by informing you in advance of how long you may have to wait for your meal. I truly wish we could get the food out faster, but we are working hard to save so that we can one day expand the kitchen... But until then, please relax and enjoy the British Bobby Experience.
Summer Is Here...
