Typical pub atmosphere :)

The food was great as was the service. Portions were HUGE! Great place for either a couple or for a larger group of friends to sit, chat, eat and drink. Lots of various brews on the menu to choose from.

Canadians just don't do the British pub idea justice. This place comes with good reviews but it felt tired, lacking in warmth with rows upon rows of dark featureless tables. The food isn't cheap either - I went for the Lamb Curry Roti. The dish really just underwhelmed. Its few redeeming features are good wifi and enough (but not too... More

I went to The Bishop and Belcher for a beer and nachos, the service was really good and friendly. The bartender gave us a 50 per cent discount on the Nachos because it wasn't hot! But it was our mistake as we were in a hurry and told her when we ordered that we dot have time. I like the... More

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

Located very close to the Marriott on Bloor Street, this British pub has excellent service great food and is only steps away from Yonge Street. The staff is very efficient and very friendly and suggested the shepherds pie which is one of their staple items. The shepherds pie was fantastic and so tasty I wanted to take one back to... More

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

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
