The old Union Jack behind the bar may be faded, but spirits are soarin’. And why not? This is after all, a laugh-out-loud, slap-on-the-back, greet-you-with-a-roar, English-style pub. Where the traditions are as rich and warm as the Shepherd’s Pie.

Whether that means cheering on your beloved team, chatting up your mates or simply savoring fresh made eats with a bit of jolly old England folded in here and there, this is the pub where you get your brit on.
this is my go to and has been for decades. foo, service and price always outstanding
During the day the ambiance was a bit dark and dull, service was OK, and the food was good.
Wrap had to be sent back no chipotle, no guacamole on the turkey chipotle wrap. Fish and chips were good. Service was slow.
Babe loved it! I did too. Lots of choices for only two stomachs. Go, eat.
This restaurant is really doing it right. Service was excellent and food was awesome. We are inside and I felt extremely safe. The staff are taking the sanitation of the restaurant very seriously. I will definitely go back.
The lower ambiance score was because we were on a shaded side patio, which i assume was created for Covid. No flowers on patio fence, etc. Quite bleak.
I've been to Elephant & Castle for a beer with a couple of friends. I ordered a TRUFFLE PARM POTATO CRISPS, which was very tasty!
Met with friends on the patio and enjoyed a great meal. The health precautions taken were exemplary and we enjoyed our food. Would definitely eat here again!
Great place, great location and Vibe. Loved the food however there should be drink offers
Service and ambience was fantastic. Food (specifically my medium-rare steak) not so much.
Friendly staff, good food and vibe was nice. Bien fait!
Really good service and friendly server! Food was also great and the restaurant took all the precautions to make the experience safe during this pandemic! Thank you!
Good location and wonderful service.
Victoria was amazing. Made us feel right at home.
Thank you for handling us with such care and attention
Best chill out Uk feel pub in Toronto downtown 👍🏼
Great food and great service. Server was fantastic. We will be back.
Yes, the food was great, a bit pricey on the 6 oz Pinot Gri at $9.50, also the IPA beer at $8.00 small glass.
Great location for theatre goers. Prompt friendly service. Restaurant was unusually quiet that night due to COVID 19 I believe.
Great service and good food!! Would love to go back!!
Lunch before our Saturday matinee was perfect. Once we had told our server our plans, she made sure we had everything we needed from drinks to the cheque in a very timely way, but we never felt rushed. We hadn't been to the Elephant & Castle in a long time, and were delighted with it once again. Although quite busy, the sound level was quiet.
Great spot for a casual dinner before the theatre.
The food was delicious, and my guest and I were able to stay as long as we wanted. We were not rushed at all. It was my first time ever having an Irish Coffee, so I thought it was very strong. Our waitress brought me extra milk packets for it without a problem, I really appreciate this.
The server seemed to rush us to order drinks when we first sat down. She took our appetizer order (pretzel bites) then seemed to disappear for some time. She took our main course order and then was gone for a while too. When she cleared our plates she said for us to take our time. But when we were ready to go we still had to wait as she hadn’t brought us our bills yet. It was a long wait to get our bills. The pub wasn’t very busy so it couldn’t have been that she was busy with many other tables.
The pretzel bites and dip were great ... but we didn’t get enough pretzel bites for the amount of dip that was served. Had a spoon been provided with the dip we could’ve spooned some out onto our plates and maybe more would’ve been used (but we didn’t double dip).
The fish and chips was ok. The one end of the fish seemed slightly underdone (or had too much batter that didn’t properly get cooked) and the fries didn’t have any color or flavor to them.
Great food and excellent service. The reservation worked well on a busy night and we had a great experience.
All in all always a nice place to go before the concert or theatre. Busy, bustling crowd, good service and food.
Disappointing. French fries and chicken were cold, had to ask for Parmesan cheese on Caesar salad as none was originally included. Wine list needs updating as very poor Red selection. Server good.
convenient pub with a variety of food options. Nothing particularly special... but it's a welcome option vs. the high-priced places right in the core.
Food was tasty. SErvice friendly/fast. No complaints at all.
Great service - love the grilled brussels sprouts on special right now. Cozy atmosphere on a cold night.
2nd time there and enjoyed it again.
Love the location for proximity to Symphony and Theatre
It was a great spot for a quick pub lunch. It was a lot quieter than I expected
Was not too impressed by the food. Quantity and quality both disappoint.
It was pretty quiet and there were plenty of screens to watch the games
Cheese cake was dry. Roast beef in the Yorkshire pudding was mediocre.
Good food and good service. I’ve never been disappointed anytime I’ve eaten here.
Serves as acceptable for a preconcert visit when everywhere else around there is full.
Always delicious! Never disappointed
Good service, good portions of food. Good price!
We made a reservation for 5 on Valentines Day and, despite arriving unexpectedly early were seated right away. Service was fantastic although it was busy, and the food was delicious. We’ve eaten at E&C a few times before and it never disappoints. Great spot to grab a bite and a brew!
Staff very helpful
Assisted my husband with his walker on the stairs.
Casual dining, good menu selection, good value. Drink specials every night of the week. Bit loud pre-game
We had an Irish waiter..a very friendly young man..he did a wonderful job bring us our meal on time so we could make it to our show .
