Built in 1912, The Oaks Restaurant is home to the oldest building in Oak Bay Village and originally housed the Oak Bay Grocery and the Oak Bay Post Office.
From 1981-2012, The building went under some beautiful restoration and renovations and was named “The Blethering Place.” It blossomed into a popular meeting place for locals as well as a destination for international tourists.
(According to Oxford, “blethering” is Scottish for. . . “voluble senseless talking”!)
Now known as The Oaks Restaurant, you’ll find some of the best parts of the past and new style from the new owners. Enjoy afternoon tea at the most reasonable price in town, with The Oaks homemade jam, marmalade, sauces, and made-from-scratch desserts.
