Orwell's is an old Etobicoke haunt that still does a great chicken wing and ice cold drafts. I recently dropped in for a quick pint and a few wings and was pleased wit the food and drink and especially impressed with the waitress who had a super attitude. Doddsy

In a good location, pretty much right at the corner of Bloor & Islington, right across from a TTC bus terminal. (Don't drink & drive!) The service was fast and friendly and the food and drinks were moderately priced. Lots of different beers (23, I think our server said) on-tap. Typical pub menu.
