Sir Winston’s Pub
Centrally-located in downtown Vernon, Sir Winston’s Pub is a local favourite, and their rooftop patio is a perfect place to relax with friends. Enjoy the adult atmosphere while snacking on delicious appetizers, including cajun or garlic prawns, mini Yorkshire puddings, and chicken wings.

Another local favourite is the lakeside patio at Alexander’s Beach Pub located next to beautiful Kalamalka Lake. Watch the action on the lake and enjoy summer breezes while partaking of the pub’s extensive food and drink menu. Feel free to come by year round as the patio is heated in the winter!
For the ultimate patio experience, head out onto one of Vernon’s beautiful lakes! Rent a pontoon boat for your very own private patio, enjoy afternoon and dinner cruises, or take some friends out on a guided excursion for a fully-captained adventure so you can relax and take in the beauty of the Okanagan.
