    ABC Restaurant in Merritt burns down...

    For any loop riders, you may need a new lunch spot in Merritt:


    Hotels, restaurant destroyed in fire

    Three long-standing businesses in one building in Merritt were gutted by fire Sunday night.

    Merritt RCMP have not ruled out arson as they search for the cause of the blaze that consumed the Days Inn, the Grasslands Hotel, and the ABC Family Restaurant.

    The ground at the 3300-block of Voght Street was still smouldering this morning, which prevented police and fire officials from investigating the area, said Cpl. Dave Ryan.

    At 10:40 p.m. Sunday night, the police and the fire department received a phone call from someone who saw fire at the back of the restaurant, said Cpl. Ryan.

    The restaurant and pub were closed, and the hotel was empty, he said. Firefighters battled the blaze for several hours. No one was injured.

    There's always the "Home Restaurant".

    There is also the cold water hotel.

    We dumped a group of about 15 riders there and they were able to handel us quickly, food was good, and fair price.

    If your heading up in a group of 12 or more you might wanna give them a heads up at or 250 378 3570
    When speeding run from the cops, it's a lesser infraction.

    None right now...
    We always stay at the Best Western up on the hill. Much nicer view from the poolside, and the restaurant alongside is passable.
