Pub night with Roast Beef Dinner at the Billy Bishop

  • Jan 31, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Fancy a bit of something juicy, tender, and tasty? Then we have just the thing for you! Come on down to the Billy Bishop and enjoy their legendary Friday night Roast Beef Dinner.

For the princely sum of $12 you get a nice bit of organic Aberdeen Angus beef , a baked potato, lashings of veggies, and a fresh salad. The British banter and bonhomie is on the house, as is the pubby atmosphere of the Billy. From around 8:00pm onwards there will be jukebox music for the Friday entertainment.

Space is limited, so RSVP quickly if you want your beef. Please also arrive by 6.30pm at the latest, otherwise the reserved seats may be lost.

As a reminder, "The Billy" is a Royal Canadian Legion with what's arguably the closest thing in Vancouver to a local village pub. It's located in Kitsilano on Laburnum Street, half a block north of Cornwall Avenue, and is well-served by bus routes on both Cornwall (2, 22, 32, N22, 258) and 4th Avenue (4, 7, 44, 84, 258). Street parking in the area is available.

On the Legion's website (see link below) they have some rules of etiquette (it's a members club) which they would appreciate being observed by guests enjoying the venue. Please make sure you read them before attending.

Please be sure to update your RSVP if you've said you're coming and your plans change.

    Neil, this was 5 star - the limited food, the uncomfortable seats, the musical chairs...word's I eavesdropped on.....but, its a good thing I'm obtuse to a point of oblivious, since, like most, I showed up to meet mature, nondiscriminatory raconteurs, and this group dispensed copiously.
    Thanks immensely to you and all who attended

    Sorry to say that my friend and I even though we did RSVP and were confirmed were unable to have any dinner as the 30 tickets (should have been at least 34 as far as I can see) set aside for the Meet Up were gone when we arrived at 6:15 pm... so I suggest in the future that members arrive at 6 pm. The bartender was extremely rude to everyone waiting to get tickets telling us to not get excited and leaving the bar in a huff. Some people had come quite a distance for this meet up and were understandably disappointed. Luckily I know the neighbourhood and was able to get dinner elsewhere. Very disappointing first impression!

    If anyone's already there, I'm on my way; traffic very busy, so I'm still on the bus.

    I was looking forward to tonight but have come down some sort of stomach bug. :-(

    January 31, 2014

    • Neil

      Sorry you can't make it Kate. Get well soon.

    Just a note that there's no piano player unless one randomly shows up! This Friday they have Jukebox music as it's a fifth Friday of the month, usually live entertainment.

    Is it possible to come at 9:30 or is it too late??
    Is there a cover charge???

    January 27, 2014

    • Neil

      There is no cover charge...and you are welcome to come down at 9.30 for drinks only. They are open until 12.30am on Friday, but the roast beef dinner is only served until about 8.00pm.

      Thank you so much..i love to come for the dinner as well but i work until 9pm. I will come for drinks.

  • Nilofer

    Neil is it cash only or..?

    January 14, 2014

    • Neil

      I don't think it's cash only...but there's no table service there, so you order and pay for your drinks and food individually at the bar. As far as I know, they take cards as well as cash.

      The Billy take cash, credit and debit cards.
