We decided to stop by here for cocktails only, so I cannot rate the food. Nice selection of beers. We did look at the menus, both regular and brunch, and the selections looked interesting (they even have a few Vegetarian items). We liked the cool atmosphere, but it is a little pricey for what you get - even the drinks... More

We went to eat here after a long day sightseeing in Toronto, and it was very warm and welcoming. The food was really different and interesting, and it was delicious. The beers were tasty, and the wines were also good. On the downside, it is a little pricey for a pub, and the service was a touch brisk for our... More

Great beers, English feel, good food. Well located. Bit on the pricey side but well worth it. It has a lovely upstairs terrace.

This is a great place for beers and hanging out with friends. The place is very intimate with old world touches everywhere. I would recommend stopping by for a beer and some food.

We came here for the rooftop patio which is nice but crowded. We were seated very close to tables on both sides which made our experience less intimate. Arrive early--it's small and fills up, and people stay for drinks for hours! But, the waiting area in the 2nd floor library is cozy and the bartender took care of us. The... More

Nice pub with a good atmosphere. Fish and chips are quite good. Definitely try their famous gin and tonic.

This is a good, solid traditional pub. The menu is gastro-pub, with modern tweaks to traditional pub fare. Excellent beers on tap, good wine list, and pretty good service. It's a little pricey for a pub, but the food is better than average. Nice patio on the second floor.

This place was really close to the hotel we were staying at, and so we decided to try it. The way this place is done up gives us the impression of a very authentic pub. The atmosphere in there is really good, and the service is what you would expect - straight to the point, but polite. Definitely reminded me... More

The pub is set up to replicate a high quality old fashioned English pub and it achieved this. great dining, the fish sanf chips were fresh with a light batter. the decor was classic. You will pay more for a similar lower quality meal on the main Yonge street.
