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.

    Sat for 15 minutes with no drinks or water before waiter came over and said food was at least 40 minutes behind. Busy but apparently not able to handle the number of people sat. Ended up going elsewhere. Food has been good on past visits.

    Delicious and creative pub grub. Their pot pies are rich and satisfying. The burger was wonderful with fresh and crisp lettuce that still snapped. The Slum Dog was a bit spicy but delicious. I will be happy to go again if only for another serving of bread pudding.

    The staff are amazing here. Food quality depends on the entree and tends towards over fried but overall good for bar food.

    Went to Elephant and Castle for dinner with my father and brother. It was a busy night with SeaFair and the staff were very prompt and helpful. The host was very professional when dealing with male Karens being upset about the heat and busy restaurant. 10/10 experience

    We went to this restaurant for dinner before going to the theater. The service was fine. Our pretzel appetizer was decent. I had the steak and mushroom pie. The sauce wasn’t a typical brown gravy but tasted very like a nalley’s chili. Not quite what was expected and the top crust was not completely cooked. My husband said that his fish and chips were ok; not the best but not bad.

    It was just ok. I’m pretty sure we got the wrong food, or else the food really didn’t match the description. They swore it was the right food. Absolutely no chicken it the (supposed) chicken pot pie.

    Took over an hour to get two uncomplicated meals. I felt bad for the server because he was nice and couldn’t do anything, but the kitchen just couldn’t keep up. We scheduled two hours for dinner reservation and almost missed the first part of our show at the 5th Ave theater because of slow service.

    We took the family for dinner before a show and had a good time. The food was good and restaurant is a good location and setting. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The waiter informed us that it was happy hour, so we enjoyed the bonus benefit of that. Wait for food and service was a little longer than preferred, but understandable given the staffing levels and time of day. Service was courteous and attentive otherwise. We had a good time with the kids, which was the point.

    We came in for a quick lunch and waited 40+ minutes for two items, a salad + a soup. The chicken on the salad was still raw on the inside, not cooked. The server was nice and tried to help but overall super disappointing.

    I wanted to treat my English husband to an authentic English meal for his Father’s Day/Birthday and The Elephant and Castle Pub did not disappoint! They had Boddington’s (his fave) on tap! Great sausage rolls. We both ordered Pies and they were delicious…we will definitely go back!!!

    We were there before attending a play at the 5th Ave theater. Felt just like an English Pub. The food was traditional and tasty. Like EVERYWHERE else, they are struggling with staffing but talk about grace under pressure! I have never seen better teamwork, and customer support in a restaurant. If you get a chance, go. Please be kind to the staff- they are doing the best they can during these time of understaffing and overworking.

    We've had many great experiences at Elephant and Castle, but yesterday wasn't one of them. We had a 4:30 reservation and arrived at about 4:15 after a theater show ended. We were told that the server in the "4:30 section" hadn't arrived yet and we needed to wait until 4:30. 4:30 came and went, and at about 4:40 the hostess seated us in a different section, with no apology for the wait or explanation. The server in that section (obviously working more than his usual number of tables) studiously ignored us every time he walked by for at least 10 minutes before finally greeting us and taking our order, again with no apology or word of explanation. Once he finally starting serving our table, everything was fine. I totally understand the stresses of being understaffed, but an apology or words of explanation in a customer service industry goes a long way, and we didn't get that from anyone in the process.

    Food was great and very British style which is fun. Waiters could perhaps receive a bit more training, so they know what the food offerings are in detail and so they know about specials like the 1/2 price Wine on Wednesdays. Twice now waiters have not known the answers to our questions. Outstanding to have the "nano" window on one side of the restaurant that can open to outside air. It was lovely last night.
