Dining

West Coast Dining at its Best!
 
Fresh and LocalDinner at Soule Creek Lodge is a Set Prix Fixe Menu* (served to all guests at 6:30 pm) consisting of three courses: an appetizer/salad, main course, and dessert with coffee or tea (kids meals are also available). We source our ingredients locally when possible: seafood from the waters off of Port Renfrew, poultry and eggs from Cowichan Valley, and produce from small Vancouver Island farms. We believe in the simple preparation of quality food.

Guests enjoy dining in a casual atmosphere giving them an opportunity to meet one another. Soule Creek is not licensed to sell alcohol, but our guests are welcome to supply their own and no corkage fee is charged. We recommend buying before arriving, as Port Renfrew's general store has a very limited selection of wine. Each evening meal is prepared from scratch daily, requiring that reservations be made before 10:00 am on the day you plan to dine with us. However, we suggest making reservations earlier, as we are limited to 16 seats.
