nice beer selection, nice location, nice décor, good food, waitstaff ok. I was there on a slow afternoon (Monday) so you think service would have been a bit better but overall it was a nice place and a nice experience. Nothing A+ but nothing a C either. Good solid choice for a pint and pub food.

Friday night was not a good night for this pub. Service was weak and slow. It took forever to get our pub fare and when we did it was cold - c'mon man! You're a pub! Really disappointing. Finally, the server was rude at the end when the pub was closing. He would not let us finish our drinks and... More

The first two beers we tried to order they were out of but the beer that the waitress suggested was really good so I didn't mind. Food was good. They seemed really short staffed. Would go back.

It was pelting down rain and we were hungry and staying at the Motiff Hotel .We didn't want to walk far. It was a Saturday night and the place was not overly busy. 24 different beers are available at around $6 for a 20oz glass. We decided to have a meal and a bottle of red wine ($26 for a... More

Just a quick visit to refresh ourselves, turned into a couple of pints of Boddingtons (good pint!) and a couple of tasty Pimms! Delicious! Kids were hungry so Pretzel sticks and fried pickles, which were very good. A couple of games of Pool and an hour or so enjoyably spent.

It was my daughters birthday and we were in Seattle, so we told her she could pick the place to eat. She picked here. There is outdoor dining at street level, then you go down stairs to eat in the restaurant. The food was tasty, with large portions, and the service was great. If I ever go back to Seattle,... More

Went here for a quick dinner as we had to be at the Space Needle for a fixed time ticket. We told the waiter that we needed fast dining, and despite ordering very basic dishes it took more than 30 min in an almost empty restaurant. Food was nothing to write about

Great atmosphere ! Nice treatment by waiters..had a humus well prepared and tasty plus bear was cold. After walking the all day, Elephant&castle pub was a refreshing stop. Definitely will return.

I visited Elephant & Castle three times this past week while I was in town on business. Always great service! Bar food is typical and nothing super special but the place always has a great vibe. The bartenders are attentive and I love the opportunity to try out local beers too. I love hanging out here - lots of places... More

We are your favorite neighborhood pub for dining, drinking and gathering. We are famous for our fish and chips, great beer and the warmth of genuine smiles. E&C's menu has its roots firmly planted in traditional English fare, featuring such pub classics as Shepherd's Pie, Bangers and Mash and Stuffed Yorkshire Pudding. The menu is rounded out by a wide variety of North American comfort foods and sophisticated offerings from around the world. E&C's drink offerings provide guests with a significant selection of beer, wine and spirits. At its core is the Love of Beer program that focuses on serving the perfect imperial pint of a variety of local craft and import beers. As such, E&C is the preferred destination for guests who appreciate a well-crafted beer.
