The old Union Jack behind the bar may be faded, but spirits are soarin’. And why not? This is after all, a laugh-out-loud, slap-on-the-back, greet-you-with-a-roar, English-style pub. Where the traditions are as rich and warm as the Shephard’s Pie. And where the stories flow as freely from the tongue as the beer flows from the taps.
Since 1977, Elephant & Castle has rolled out its well-worn welcome mat to anyone and everyone looking for a cracking good time. Whether that means cheering on your beloved team or chatting up your mates or simply savoring fresh made eats with a bit of jolly old England folded in here and there, this is the pub where you get your brit on.

Our server was excellent. The food and drinks were amazing as well. Our server did a wonderful job of informing us of drink specials and we were impressed with the quality of the mimosas and bloody mary’s at such an unbelievable price! Truly enjoyed this dining experience.

Nice and decent!
Tried chicken peri peri appetizer, it was okayish not what we expected.
Good drinks anc food menu though.
Location wise its a good place, decent patio seating!
We were out on a patio and since its just next to train tracks so noise level can be annoying but it all depends which time of the day you are hanging out.

Food was very good and portions were big. The only downfall is we sat outside and the trains came by every few minutes, so i would recommend sitting inside.

Getting a reservation was fast and easy. Was seated promptly upon arrival and server came over quickly and took drink orders. Checked on us a good amount of times but did not disturb. I ordered the Bangers and Mash, the sausages were a little dry and potatoes were a bit under seasoned. My companion had a burger and that was well prepared and better flavor.

There were only 2 servers, the food was not good and the L train was very loud. Had to ask for utensils, had to ask for condiments. Soda was flat and the service was horrible

The food was very good. However the service was not so great. It may be due to the time being out of the norm as it was the week of reopening due to the pandemic. The server was sweet but there was miscommunication between the person who seated us and took our drink order and herself. Also, we dined outside and it began to drizzle a little. They had large umbrellas so most fingers opted to sit it out. The only thing is the server suggested that WE could move them closer to us if we wanted. I would have thought that was something that the staff would do.

I ordered the fish and chips. It was fresh and pretty good standard quality. My guy had an arugula salad with grilled chicken that was really tasty. We will return for the food and hopefully service will improve.

Even though the restaurant wasn’t very full, we were seated right next to the kitchen. We made a reservation through Open Table and they said we didn’t show up, even though we were very much there. They got one of our meals wrong. It was just an okay experience.

We loved our dinner at E & C! Because of the ability to make a reservation easily in the open table app, we arrived and were seated immediately at a table by the window. The server was wonderful and knew the menu really well. He was able to answer all our questions and suggested some items. The menu has something for everyone. The pretzel bites and beer cheese was spectacular! My friend had the grilled cheese and tomato soup and I ordered the chicken pot pie. It was unique with a rich base and soft chicken and vegetables. The goat cheese and cranberry salad was excellent. Wonderful comfort food for a chilly evening in the city. I would return to E & C in a heartbeat!
