Cannot knock the food whatsoever, very nice meal but the price is a bit steep, especially as many other pubs nearby serve food as good for half the price.
The staff are a good, although I got a bit fed up of being asked if I wanted more drinks every 5 minutes!!
If money isnt an issue then this is definately worth a visit, bit as I mentioned already, places nearby serve food as good for alot less.

The title says it all really. Went today for the first time to the Elephant and Castle based on a friend's reccomendation and reviews. We went with my mum and dad and we all loved the Sunday Roast. Between the 4 of us we had 2 beef, 1 pork and a lamb and they were all consistently good. Massive yorkshires, thick tasty gravy and delicious veggies. I honestly can't remember the last time I enjoyed a roast dinner so much.

There was a good atmosphere and the serving staff were all pleasant, particularly the duty manager. I liked that we weren't rushed and had time for our mains to go down before the puddings arrived. We were there just under 2 hours and it felt like we had had a relaxed and leisurely lunch.

My only minor criticisms would be that my pudding (sticky toffee) was slightly too cold and came with cream rather than the ice-cream it said on the menu. Although I was brought some ice-cream when I asked about this and it was delicious. I booked via the website but didn't recieve a confirmation so I had to call up also, and I also signed up for the free pudding voucher via the website which hasn't arrived so I don't know if there might be a problem with the website at the moment. These are only very minor things though and the amazing roast more than made up for any other little niggles.

We will definately be going back, although as the prices are top end we will probably go for a special occasion or when the free pudding voucher comes through!!

Well worth a visit.

We went with friends and on a recomendation and was impressed with the decor, what a nice warm and pleasant pub/restuarant.
We were seated straight away with no problems althouh we had not reserved a table and had an odd number. We orderd drinks which unfortunatly took about 10 mins to arrive which I would have expected them earlier. We soon made our order from the menu and the food did take time but by that you know its cooked fresh and to order. the food was very nice indeed. We then orderd another round of drinks which again too ages, 15 mins later I went to the bar to see if they had forgot but they said they were sorry but had it in hand and soo enough they did arrive.
The staff were very polite and friendly although we did have to ask for salt, vinegar and sauces with our meal. The manageress was also very friendly and chatty.
All in all we enjoyed our visit but the only gripe was the wait for our drinks and had we had drinks sooner we would spent much more behind the bar, so please please get more staff on as they were very busy.
