Great staff, decent food

Noticeable improvements in the menu since the new owner(s) took over, and the service is still great as always. English style pub with typical pub fare, and a good drinks selection. The patio is great, and gets packed after work with the office crowd from upstairs. Wouldn't go out of my way to come... read more

I've been here a few times for a pint with some friends. I noticed recently there's been a change in ownership with some new menu items. Like I said, I usually just stop by for a pint (take your pick from the abundance of quality draught options). Decided to come for lunch with a few colleagues. First impression is how... More

Took my friends here for a quick lunch as I had an apartment around the corner for the week whilst I was in town. Great place. The staff were very friendly and wow was the food great. Big portions. We had a table outside and it was very relaxing. I will hopefully return when I am in town next.

The menu is big but not overwhelming. Lots of variety to please any taste. I took my team of 16 people for lunch, we are a big mix of different ethnicities and everyone found something that was very appealing for lunch. Service was pretty good for a very busy lunch time crowd, food came for all of us almost at... More

Business dinner at this British style pub. Nice outdoor dining area. Service was good but not overly attentive. Food was good with a wide variety of ethnic choices...not really a true pub with grub

Recently had dinner here after traveling all day to Toronto. Our hotel was close by and we just needed something reasonably priced with a good menu selection. The Bishop and Belcher met all these needs. The menu is varied, fairly priced and we had good service for a weeknight dinner. No wait and for either a table or the food... More

Popped in twice now for small work gatherings. Layout is nice, service fast and efficient, nice selection of draught beers. Have only sampled the fingers foods - but it was all very good.

Stopped by here for a bite impromptu with a friend. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety on the menu. The decor is a basic pub, but the place was cosy on a cold day and prices were reasonable. They had good coffee and the wait staff was super friendly and attentive.

I received the worst service ever. It’s a mystery how people with poor social etiquette were allowed to work in service. Don’t understand how this pub got high ratings with such a rude service. Unfriendly atmosphere forced me to leave the pub and never come back. A female bartender adopted very disrespectful tone for from the very beginning of our... More

This place has quickly become my 'local' even though I'm not really a huge pub person my significant other is. Great happy hour special (wine & beer) and great nightly food specials. I quite enjoy their nachos, the chubby chicken burrito and really liked their sticky cashew chicken dish. The staff is very friendly and service is prompt. Comfortable chill... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
