Excellent beer and food. Each beer type is served at its optimal temperature. My server was v e r y attentive, pouring me samples before I buy. If you like beer, REAL HAND PUMPED CASK CONDITIONED ALE this is the place. The barman was knowledgable about each ale. I will go back, I suggest if you haven't been there you... More

Just fantastic!! Great friendly staff! I'm never disappointed here. Tonight we tried this special weekly feature, a burger (Oink Oink Moo Moo), and it was terrific! Perhaps the best burger that I had this year. The beer selection is great, lots of craft beer to choose. On the weekend they offer brunch and the eggs Benny are my favourite. I... More

Lunch is quite reasonable as they have a lot of daily specials - something for everyone. Service is really good. A quiet place for a lunch meeting. The Beet salad was delicious as well as the daily soup.

A group of us attended a head scratchers trivia night for my brother in-laws birthday. We had a really fun time. The food hits the spot and it was fun trying a new brew! We sat in the bottom lounge and felt quite at home. Our server was kind as can be and it was evident that she really enjoyed... More

Just visiting the city with family ... Had a couple of hours off from my parental and husbandry responsibilities and ducked into Stout for a quick snifter. Good company at the bar, great barman and good beer. Really enjoyed it.

I went last night with a friend for a few beers and a quick bite. The place has a cool vibe and would be the sort of place you could hang out for the evening. The beer selection was large and the staff were very polite and knowledgeable.The food came fast but I did not find it anything special. I... More

Staff are pretty friendly & accommodating as always, which is lovely. The lounge feel where the fire place is nice. I had the veggie curry, which was tasty apart from one thing: the kale in it was raw, and I found the texture of chewy, leafy veg in the soft tenderness of the curry didn't work well. The curry itself... 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.
