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.
Since 1977, Elephant & Castle has rolled out its well-worn welcome mat to anyone and everyone looking for a good time. 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.

    We had reservations before the theatre and our table was waiting for us. We had a genial and great server that made sure we were well looked after. Our food was delicious and the three of us look forward to returning.

    My friend and I met at The Elephant and Castle for lunch before going to the theatre. The menu is predominantly pub food, which I enjoy. I ordered the deluxe hamburger with a side of "noble salad". I didn't know what a noble salad was but the server explained that it was a green salad with dried cranberries and some seeds and nuts. Both the burger and salad were delicious. My friend ordered a Caesar salad with chicken and was equally satisfied although she found the salad very large and could not finish it all.

    The half price bottles of wine was an instant hit! Our server recommended the sausage rolls, he wasn’t wrong!!! The chicken pot pie was the best ever tasted! One of our party forgot their reader at the table and one of the staff called us and we were able retrieve it!! Going above and beyond!!

    Outstanding cuisine and service. But SO noisy! The music was loud and people had to talk loudly to be heard. We could not hear our friends talking in a regular voice sitting at the same table across from us.

    Good varied menu I had wrap and added chicken - the three little scraps of chicken did not warrant the extra charge but the wrap itself was great. Also it turned out to be half price bottle wine day - hey everything tastes better! Good place for pre theatre lunch

    There were 4 of us . We were seated at a table probably for 6 which was roomy but ore difficult to converse. One of our party is on a walker so we appreciated being seated right at the front door which was so handy although a little ore noisy. Cant win em all!!

    At first service was questionable, but then realized they were training new host and hostesses' and it looked like it was their first night. After that service was great. Only think we would change is to warm up the turkey for the club sandwich. But as usually quality, price and service is what we have come to expect . A +++

    First time at this location and we will absolutely be coming back. We were in Toronto for the jays game and the location of this restaurant was perfect! 3 minute walk from the metro centre parking garage through a nice pavilion park and then an 8 minute walk to rogers centre. Service was good and food was excellent. Multiple TV’s with different viewing options (closed captioning would be an improvement here). This will be our go to in Toronto I think.

    My wife and I visited on a trip from Windsor, and wanted to watch the Champions League semi final with fellow Liverpool supporters. The E&C delivered a fantastic experience. The friendly staff, prompt service, excellent food, and lively atmosphere was exactly what we came for. We really appreciate what this establishment offers after a few years being pent up during the pandemic. I wish I could come back for the final. I’ll make a point of visiting whenever we come to Toronto.
