Just before you go down the hill into the heart of Deep Cove, you’ll make out the iconic sign of a circa 1940s golfer letting you know you have arrived at The Raven Neighbourhood Pub and Restaurant. This local hangout has been around for more than 35 years — a place where families are just as welcome as the paddlers, skiers, mountain bikers and the home-away-from-home loyal patrons who frequent this pub.
Not to say this local institution hasn’t had its fair share of local celebrities coming in for a pint or martini! Love It or List It, Vancouver’s interior designer Jillian Harris and real estate agent Todd Talbot, were in while filming in North Vancouver. Former Canucks defenseman Dave Babych has been spotted having a beer or two as well.
Burnaby resident Brent Chysyk frequents The Raven often when he heads to Deep Cove to visit family and friends. “It’s a quaint neighbourhood pub with a nice choice of wines and great pizzas,” he says. “Whenever I come here with friends, they always say hello to someone they know.”
