A casual, homey atmosphere. Food is consistent, no disappointments ever. We have gone off and on over a period of a year and half now. Every time we order a dish that we've had before it is always presented the same. Everyone we have ever introduced to this wonderful eatery loves the place. Food is always hot and delicious and...

.... a good combination for any restaurant having all 3. Consistently good food, well-prepared and generous portions. Above average beer selection. Brilliant décor and comfortable atmosphere. Service has been top notch since it opened.

Our team went after our last day, of a long work week. Great place for drinks and food. The night's special "Chinese Nachos" were really good and very unique, and the serving size was huge! Staff was very friendly. The place was fun, not too loud and definitely a place to re-visit!

We were there for lunch and ordered chicken korma and shepherd's pie. We really enjoyed the food there and we went back again for dinner few days later. This time we ordered chicken fettuccine and the big belch and we ended up with lotsa leftover

I was invited to The Bishop and Belcher for dinner and drinks, with a couple colleagues. I was blown away by the salmon salad, the pecans had a hint of spice that I loved! The service was great, prompt, asked all the right questions, and I never had an empty glass... What more could you ask for! I will definitely... 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

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 here, but it's a good choice... 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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
