Two times in a row super disappointed with the food. The food is incredibly untasty and badly cooked and prepared, bland, cheap tasting and did not finish food. Never going back.

Enjoyed the Terminus. The waitress moved us to a bigger table when she saw we were a bit cramped. Food was good.

The food is fresh and delicious. Very reasonably priced for the large portion. I could barely finish it all. Good ambience, a bit loud upstairs but as we were downstairs the cheer just added to the atmosphere

An excellent location for a good sized pub meal in a great setting. The staff are attentive and courteous, but not intrusive. Overall, a great meal in a great location.

Nice venue, nachos were great. Price is good too.
Would be nice if they have a fan for upstairs outdoor area on a hot day.

The restaurant was very quiet. We had a table of four, we use the QR code to order. All the food and drinks came quickly, the staff were friendly and the food was good.

Service was slow initially. Food wasn't bad but nothing to write home about. I guess it is a good place to just catch a few beers.

On initial entry we were seated on an extremely small bar table with 5 male adults, we asked for another larger table and they accommodated instantly providing us with a booth upstairs.

Food was timely, tasty and good portioned as well as well priced.

Check in and ordering was easy.

With so many booths and tables free, they put our group of 6 across two awkwardly distanced tables so that we couldn't comfortably talk or eat. When we asked the manager if there was a more convenient place to be moved to (and I'll reiterate, both levels had a huge amount of booths or tables free), he was pretty short and rude and said look that's just the way it is, we can't put you onto a bigger table that would leave a couple of seats free and unoccupied. Now if your restaurant is fully booked then that's very understandable, but this was half empty on a Friday night. No one would've been inconvenienced or would've missed out. Made for not a great night of trying to lean in to hear each other.

Apart from the initial confusion regarding whether we could drink sitting or standing the night was really good. Terminus looked after us really well and made sure our post COVID experience was memorable. Well done!!

I've not been to the Terminus in Abbotsford before but was looking specifically for a pub in Richmond area, recommended to by a family member. The abundance of plant growth in and around the various dining areas is worth going for alone - we were in a quiet spot overlooking the downstairs outside bar - I had flowering jasmine growing along the balcony beside me. Service - we went just outside of mandatory mask wearing - was fine, quiet night - not an extensive menu or wine list but my food was better than the average pub meal and I understand things are not back to normal. I'd go back again - a quite drink in that urban jungle and/or the restrained restoration of the front bar is lovely. The only downside might be the backless bench stools in many of the areas so if you need a back to your chair it's probably worth making a point of asking.

I don’t know why you make 90-120mins bookings at 10pm and then close the pub at 11pm

Ridiculous.

One of the best meals I have ever had. When I bit into the perfectly battered fish it was like the first time I heard the Beatles! Randy our server was great, I could see she really wanted to hug me on entry but she respected all covid safe measures and instead winked at me and blew me a kiss. Felt so welcomed and charmed with the place. Will definitely come back. 5 stars
