So convenient to have a great pub connected to Club Quarters! We were able to have some cocktails before our Fenway experience and then to celebrate their win on our return for the night. The next morning we enjoyed the breakfast burrito!!

I'm reviewing based on the bar as I didn't order any food. My husband were staying at the attached hotel and just stopped in at the end of the evening for a drink. The bartender was pleasant and conversational. He saw me taking forever to drink my cocktail and offered to make me something different. I liked it, I'm just... More

I came here more than expected, but after working long hours at a conference in Boston, the Elephant & Castle was such a convenience. There are plenty of tables and a nice-sized bar. The place serves a variety of food which makes it difficult to classify it as an English or Irish pub.I came here on three different occasions. They... More

Great food and plenty of it! The dinner show was a murder mystery at an Irish wedding. I loved how they fostered audience participation: they suggested that certain audience members could have done it and picked the person based on how they resembled famous people. They picked one of my grandsons because of his resemblance to Harry Potter and his... More

I had the bangers and mash and my husband had the bacon wrapped meatloaf. Both dishes were excellent... However, our server seemed more interested in running back to hang out with her friends and drink a glass of wine with the bartender, so I demoted them one star for (lack of) service.

With six of us staying at the adjacent Club Quarters Hotel, this Pub was our meeting place prior to exploring Boston at the start of our 3 week New England Road Trip. The Bar Staff were very accommodating and helped us select the locally brewed Beer. This Bar has a great Pub atmosphere with chatty locals. We didn’t try the... More

Looking for a place to have a "sit down" breakfast (as our hotel did not have a restaurant and Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts were not desired) and the front desk recommended Elephant & Castle and they were right on the money ! Our omelete and breakfast burrito were fresh and tasty and our waitress couldn't have been nicer. When in... More

Normal Pub fare. Both my husband and I enjoyed our meals. We had dinner here on a Thursday evening around 6:45pm. Our order was taken and our food was served promptly. Although, our waitress did vanish for about 15 minutes so I had to ask the hostess for our check. The restaurant seemed crowded, but there were tables available. It... More
