The Irish Heather Gastropub is located at 210 Carrall Street in the heart of Gastown | 604-688-9779 |

News from Scout supporter The Irish Heather:

Vancouver, BC | The Irish Heather is hosting two sittings for Mother’s Day for everyone who wants to treat their mothers. If your mom doesn’t live in Vancouver you are welcome to come for dinner anyway – there will definitely be a mother at the table who will adopt you for the evening!

In anticipation of some warmer weather we have added some lighter, summer dishes e.g. Flat Iron Steak, Baby Back Ribs, Poached Salmon, Baked Ham and a variety of cold sides to match. We have also dropped the price back to $12 on Mondays.

June 15th will be the 1st Anniversary of the Long Table Series. To celebrate we will be launching the LTS lunch & breakfast, as well as a couple of late night, weekend events. We’ll also be running a couple of super cheap nights…keep watching for details.

As always, we are delighted to accommodate any dietary requests, all we ask is 24 hours notice if possible. We have included a vegetarian dish that will be featured each week. For those who don’t want to drink alcohol, we are offering Boylan’s Vintage Soda Pop, courtesy of their Canadian agents and our pals, Dovre Imports.

LTS reservations can be made by emailing and are strongly recommended. You can visit the blog for photos, menus, dates and prices at

About Us


An icon and a landmark location in Vancouver, Woodward’s gave us nearly a century of authentic yet forward-thinking style. The concept was built around the welcoming of newcomers into a thriving new neighbourhood; a city on the rise where art and commerce would merge to create a social hub of unique personalities. A consummate business professional and politician, Mr. Woodward never tolerated improprieties, yet he remained approachable and as always ready to shake one’s hand. Attention to detail and creativity were some of his trademarks, becoming infamous for his “25 cent days” and his mail order catalogues. Today that entrepreneurial spirit continues in the burgeoning renaissance of Gastown, the beating heart and architectural soul of Vancouver.  Enjoy craft brews, classic cocktails and contemporary casual fare in a truly original West coast atmosphere:  industrial wood, iron and brick.  This structural foundation inspired us to design a space where a new generation of vanguards could explore ideas and push the envelope. We like to think of this as the type of fine establishment that Mr. Woodward would frequent and truly get to be himself; a place where he could meet friends and business colleagues alike, and be comfortable being called by his first name. Welcome to The Charles Bar.
