Ocean Side Yacht Club & Public House (White Rock B.C. Canada)
Formerly known as: Hemingway Public House 14995 Marine Drive, White Rock, British Columbia, Canada. Part of the Richard Joseph Group chain of pubs. This used to be the Ocean Beach Hotel which was a well known bar/ night club for years before being taken over by RJG and turned in to the Hemingway. This place has probably the best outdoor patios on Marine Drive in White Rock, great view of the ocean, pier and everyone passing by. On a nice day these seats will be hard to get. Inside they have a very nice long bar that seats about 12 people. There is lots of seating, and similar to all the other pubs in the chain. along the east side, they have 6 wine barrels hanging each with a different Ernest Hemingway quote on it. I must say, this place has the best décor of the ones in this group that I have been in. There are more than 12 beer on tap and 25 different craft beer available. The service was very fast, friendly and attentive. If you can't get a seat on the patio there are several tables by the front windows that also have a great view. Numerous TV's through out so you don't miss any of the games on TV. There is a lot of parking in one of the public parking lots near by, but they are all pay parking. If you are lucky, there is a lot right across the street. The Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railroad line passes right by and you can see the freight trains and the Amtrak passing by at a slow rate of speed coming and going to USA and Vancouver. They have daily drink specials and are open 1100 to midnight 2 days a week. I really enjoyed it here and will be back for sure. Next time I hope to get a seat on the patio.
Name has changed to Ocean Side Yacht Club & Public House. The interior has remained the same. The menu is the same as all others in this chain of pubs.
