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 watched the Stanley Cup Final here and were very happy with the service - they were attentive and changed the channel to the game for us near our table. However, the food was not good and we were sorely disappointed. I know some people make fun of British food, but I love steak & kidney pie, bangers & mash,... More

This restaurant downstairs from the Motif Hotel in Seattle likes blaring soccer games over it's external speakers. In fact, with it's excellent TV screens, it is a fine place for viewing that sport. Soccer-watching from Europe is especially satisfying on the left coast because they are not confined to late-night Pacific Time. For that matter, sports lovers are rewarded in... More

I usually get here every time I'm in Seattle. It is good "bar" food. I've never had a bad meal-everything from soup to sandwiches, burgers and mac n cheese. Average Seattle prices. Alot of locals go here plus guest from the hotel upstairs.

This is not a bad attempt at a pub! The bar it self is great! All the screens make it an excellent sports bar! Some of the food i feel isn't quintessentially British! Also maybe in England we love salt but they food literally tasted as if it had none what so ever and nor was there a pot on... More

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.
