Ye Olde Welcome Inn Pub, Oliver BC

I have never been to Scotland, but this quaint little pub located in Gallagher Lake is what I imagine every pub in Scotland to be like.

Low ceilings, low lighting, complete with a wood burning fireplace, and a real cannon that's ready for loading. It's a "locals only" kind of place where ever person notices "your not from around here". And although the pub looks like it hasn't been tended to in years, there is a quiet and humble charm to it. It's a charm that lets you relax and have a beer while you eaves drop on the local gossip.

On the menu you will find your typical pub food. Burgers, fries, ribs, fish and chips, sandwiches, salads and the best $11 steak you will ever have. The Ukrainian perogies are also fantastic.

The Ye Old Welcome Inn Pub has also been a landmark in Gallagher Lake since the 60's, so it's had it's share of owners. Dale Hyworon is the current owner and he's been doing a fine job. Hiring friendly staff, keeping a very affordable menu and giving free tours of the Okanagan from his plane.

So if you're driving through the Okanagan, stop at this pub for a beer and steak and enjoy a cozy and friendly atmosphere that will transcend you to the land of scotch.
