Welcome to the Sundowner Pub. I am proud to own and operate Delta’s best Neighbourhood Sports Pub, where we know all of our regular customers by name. My hand-picked staff and I are 100% customer-service oriented and work hard to bring you the best possible in food, drinks, service and entertainment. We offer only the finest quality, fresh food, with all-day every-day happy hour and daily food specials.
I have been working in customer service for my entire career, starting with 32 years at Safeway, where I learned that it is all about the people – both your team and your customers. After Safeway, I operated Kennedy’s Pub in North Delta with Jim Spooner from 1996 to 2003. I then owned and operated the Jolly Coachman Pub and Liquor Store in Pitt Meadows with my business partner Dave Crown from 2003 to 2013. When we sold the Jolly Coachman in 2013, I was planning to retire, but then I decided to stay working in the business that I enjoy so much. A family friend, Ed Podavin, built and operated the Sundowner Pub for more than 35 years. He passed away in September 2014 and the family decided to close the pub in March 2015. I purchased the land, building and business from the family and was very pleased to re-open the Sundowner on June 15, 2015, complete with 24 new TV screens, a new bar and a new kitchen.
Most of my team here at the Sundowner are Delta residents and all are professionals in the service industry. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
