Dining options: Late Night
Neighborhood: Downtown
Description: Situated in a century-old (1873) building directly across from the Wellesley subway station Fox & Fiddle is a brand new location which was renovated entirely to perfection on the traditional British-style pub concept. It is one of Toronto’s favourite neighbourhood bar and restaurant and Fox and Fiddle –Wellesley has earned a reputation for great food in a casual atmosphere.

I agree with the review by "SarahG". There are far better places to spend your money for a casual night out. Food on the menu was predictable with lots of traditional "pub fare". The food was mediocre at best, but the biggest problem was the server. She was not friendly at all and there was no attempt to be engaging. Not a single smile, food took a very long time, and no updates on the kitchen. Her style was "what do you want", then place the food on your table, disappear and then bring the bill and take your money. In hindsight, the TIP should have been zero dollars.

There are more than a dozen PUBS within a 5 minutes walk that are 10 times better. The Fox and Fiddle is on the "I will never go again" list.

Popped in for a spot of lunch into this pub. A waitress said we could sit wherever we wanted and she would be with us in a minute, she was as good as her word and brought menus and took a drinks order. I ordered the shaved beef with pub chips, I asked for the beef to be well done with no pink and this is how it arrived. My partner had the soup and BLT. All in all it was a good lunch - about what you would expect in a pub, we would eat there again.

Note this is a pub - and a good one at that. Beer, Bangers and Mash, Sheppherd's Pie, Burgers and Fries. This is a simple wholesome pub. Not fine dining, but good food. They have added the usual upscale attempts to the menu: Calamari, Mozz Sticks etc.
If you want a fancier restaurant then this is not for you. Good food at good prices served by friendly staff in a warm and inviting pub where you may well get spoken to by others and they may even become your friends!

A very enjoyable pub with a good selection of beer and a friendly staff. For that, this pub is worth a stop if you are in the area. The pub grub is adequate but not as inspired as some of the others I sampled this trip.

we had our suitcases in tow as we had a hotel so far from downtown that we couldnt afford to go back and get it later before leaving town.
the staff was fine with that.
the owner came right over and asked where we had stayed and made recommendations for next time.
we ordered our food.
he came back with ciders for us.
food was good, owner was very nice.
lovely building and patio.
we will be back.
