Andrew Moffatt

Owner

Andrew Moffatt was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

His first introduction to food and hospitality was at his grandparents who were operating a Bed and Breakfast in 

St. Boniface. 

Homemade ice cream, jams, baking, big family dinners on Sunday nights, with interesting people from all over the world, became the foundation for his passion for hospitality.

 

The family moved to the Fraser Valley in 1990 where Andrew embarked on his own food and beverage journey by taking a job with a little company named McDonald's.

 

Connecting people with quality food and beverage was the driving force behind opening Heron Rock Bistro in 2005.

Seven years later an opportunity at the corner of Wilkinson and Interurban led to Crooked Goose Bistro opening it’s doors in November 2012. 

 

To this day it’s the People, the incredible food and phenomenal local beverage scene that make Crooked Goose and Heron Rock places where people continue to come together.

Cheers to that!
