    Escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life at the 80-seater patio at The Noble Pig Brewhouse. The kitchen's extensive menu includes everything from poutine to pizza and a wide range of burgers, sandwiches, and main entrées. The brewpub features incredible house-made craft brews paired with meticulously created food using only the best ingredients. Be sure to try the crispy, deep fried pickles - trust us!

    The dining room is always buzzing with local residents who know how good everything tastes and visitors who are in the know. The patio, built inside an old swimming pool, is popular in Kamloops' warmer weather, especially in late summer when hops growing along the pergola form a shady canopy.

    Look closely on your next visit to the Noble Pig's patio; you can see that the bench seating around the patio's outer edge is actually the original tile pool rim.

    Fans of outdoor dining will want to check out the Cordo Resto + Bar sidewalk patio, open daily (weather dependent) for lunch and dinner.
