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 Shephard’s Pie. And where the stories flow as freely from the tongue as the beer flows from the taps.
Since 1977, Elephant & Castle has rolled out its well-worn welcome mat to anyone and everyone looking for a cracking good time. Whether that means cheering on your beloved team or 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.
PUB FOOD anyone. If you like pub food it is a good find. This is not gourmet dinning. Does not pretend to be. But they have good beer and pub food.
The food and service was quite good but it took 1 hour to receive our order. Given that this is a downtown location with many patrons being people that work downtown, this is a major reason why I would not come back. There are many other places with the same quality of food where one does not have to wait 60 minutes for some burgers (and one of the orders was wrong, and one was cold).
I definitely would return to try more dishes. Service was superb!
Nice place, casual ambiance, comfort food. Great for friends get together events
Everything was great, except there was a very cold draft about knee level which was uncomfortable. The outside temperature was quite cold though. One reason for this might have been the inside main door was wide open, thus not able to block any draft when outside door was opened. We will be back.
Ordered the fish and chips-came dripping oil to the table-and continued to do so the next 10min. I cut off drenched portion. Everyone else also thought their meal was also ‘ok’
Great burgers and great service. All at a good price. Will visit again
Came in with my husband and kids for dinner and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. Food was excellent, service was great. Will definitely return!
I would say that it was very good. Great environment even my mother and son plus my husband like the food. Thanks,
Cody was a great server. Food was delicious. The brownie was deadly good. Lamb tacos delish
The food was decent. The waitress was VERY unattentive, we would have to wave her down to order a drink then instead of asking if anyone else wanted a drink she would just walk away and chit chat with the other servers and bartender. We even had to track her down to ask if we could pay and again she walked away before we all finished paying.
The atmosphere was very loud. The food was decent and the service was okay.
Went for lunch and a weekday and I have to say, it was spectacular. The wait staff was amazing, the food was extremely good. It was quiet because it was middle of the day during the week, I assume it could get pretty loud in there but it was a nice spot, nice building. Only complaint, the washrooms are downstairs, a bit of a maze but they do offer accessible washrooms for those that need it. Very good, will definitely go back again when back in the city.
