Draught menu is so so bad... For a pub style place. Food is not good and nornis selection. Wings so so. Calamari no taste at all. If not for our great waitress.... This would be a zero....

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

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!
