Jack Nash, an ex-patriot from Sussex, England, built The Crow & Gate Public House
on ten acres of scenic property in Cedar, near Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. In doing
so The Crow & Gate Pub became the first
neighbourhood pub in British Columbia. Now a well-known landmark and favourite destination for locals and tourists alike.
Construction of The Crow & Gate Pub entailed great attention to detail. Pegged beam & plaster, exposed beams, massive stonework open fireplaces, heavy wood trestle tables and, throughout, clad with authentic pub memorabilia from the U.K. all creating an ambiance only otherwise experienced if you take a trip to the South of England.
