Get your Brit On at Elephant & Castle! Nothing feels as warm and inviting as sitting down at the pub and sampling a taste of Britain. The old Union Jack behind the bar may be faded, but the mood is vibrant. Steps from St. Andrew subway station. On the border of the financial and entertainment districts, we're the perfect location for a business lunch or dinner before a show; walking distance from Mirvish Theatres, Roy Thomson Hall and Scotiabank Arena.

    Great place for fish and chips. Fish is always a good size, not greasy and chips cooked to perfection. Service is great, servers are mindful of time should you be heading to the theatre. Cocktails are always great.

    NOT ACCESSIBLE ! Beware there were only concrete steps with a handrail to get into this restaurant. We did not see any other option. Different levels, including to get to the bathroom. Server took order (did not give name). He was adequate. Water not offered, and when asked, only one glass was brought for two of us. Food was tasty. Fish and Chips portion was on the small side. Salad could have used more dressing. Desert dropped off on table by some random person, no cutlery. Since there are so many handrails inside this establishment, would be responsible of the restaurant to have a few hand sanitizer stands for your guests.

    Our meals were good. I cannot say that they were exceptional. There were 5 of us. One of us got the salmon dinner. The green beans were cold (she was compensated with a dessert) Two of us got the meat pies. I would have liked the crust cooked to a crispier consistency they were all delicious. The shepherd's pie needed gravy. When I mixed the gravy left over from my steak and mushroom pie, it was perfect. One got the hamburger and she loved it. Once got the fish tacos and would highly recommend them. The desserts ordered were the brownie and bread pudding. WOW!!! The serving sizes were unbelievably large and both delicious!

    This is our go-to restaurant when attending theatre productions in Toronto. The location is very close to Mirvish venues, the price is right, the service is friendly and quick, and the food is excellent. What more could anyone want? It is loud - it's definitely got that neighbourhood pub vibe going on and is clearly an "after work drink" sort of place, but if you don't mind some volume it's a great place. It's not so loud that you can't hear your tablemates. Love this place!

    We had a great lunch. I had the fish and chips. (Very good). My companions had the Sunday roast and the wee pie combo. Both agreed their lunch was delicious. Our server was wonderful. She was happy and showed just the right amount of attentiveness. We were delayed on the subway and late for our reservation. After our call to let them know, they were willing to save our table for us. The hostess even thanked us for calling when we finally arrived. This is the perfect place to have a meal before attending the theatre.

    Leek potato pot pie arrived cold and needed to be sent back to be reheated. Sweet potato fries ordered, but not on plate when food arrived, so had to reorder. Small non-traditional reuben sandwich not made well and lacking flavour. Fries were crispy and arrived hot. Server was friendly and efficient with a sense of humour so no problem there. I have eaten at this pub before and enjoyed a better quality of food. Hopefully, this was an off night.

    I invited a friend to dine here pre-concert! She ordered the chicken pot pie with Noble salad and loved it!! I tried the poutine appetizer with a side order of chicken. First time trying that combination... You make a great poutine - large cheese curds, and home made gravy!! it was a lovely pre-TSO concert meal!
