Small menu full of good bar food. Great staff. Lots of seating and plenty of T.V’s for sports fans. It’s one of my favourite bars.

Description
Nestled in along The Esplanade, Scotland Yard Pub has been a Toronto institution for well over 35 years. The pub is a landmark of the St. Lawrence market neighbourhood in Old Town Toronto. We offer a comfortable and casual place for our guests to come, relax and enjoy themselves. With an array of draft beers from around the world as well as the best local product available, there is something to please everyone's taste. Whether it's a quiet lunch meeting, a night out with friends or a private function, we are definitely worth investigating!
