Smoked Out in Cowichan Bay

Today we were golfing at the beautiful Arbutus Ridge Golf Course. After we were done, we headed for Cowichan Bay because the Rock Cod Cafe serves the best fish and chips in the country. We were early for dinner, so we went to the Bay Pub.

This is a great place to relax, soak in one of the valley's excellent ocean views, and savour some pub style tummy pleasers. It is also a great place to get smoked out.

Two years ago I was there and did a follow up with the owner/manager. You see, they allow smoking on their outer deck. There is about half of it reserved for non-smokers and the other half is reserved for smokers and according to the waitress, they are visited often by inspectors who indicate that this smoking area is OK....

Well, as far as I know, it is illegal to smoke in bars/pubs indoors and on outdoor patios. The last time we were inside and the doors were open and the smoke drifted inside. This time, we were outside and when the smokers arrived, the breeze was blowing our way, and we simply had to leave. Not sure why this place is allowed to operate this way?

The Fish and Chips at the Rock Cod Cafe made up for the bad end to our beer at the Bay Pub.
