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.

    Super cute pub, clean, great staff and quick service. Food was terrific, highly recommend the fried pickles. Dropped 1 overall star, just because we were told they didn’t have 3 different things we asked for that were on the menu, which was a bit odd.

    A great spot right downtown. Close to the 5th Avenue. Great food, great service and really surprised by the reasonable prices for being downtown. So many options on the menu, great selection.

    Food took over 1.5 hours to arrive after order. The wait staff did provide an update telling us the kitchen was behind. However, no effort to make up for the significant wait, no manager apology nothing. A simple acknowledgment of the inconvenience would go a long way.

    We waited quite a while to get seated although we had reservations, then the hostess didn't offer us "real" menus (as opposed to using the QR code), although they had them. The waiter showed up eventually and also didn't have menus - we requested them from him, but we had to go retrieve some on our own from the hostess desk 5 minutes later because the waiter was taking forever to return with them. We ordered very promptly after we got real menus, but the food took 40 minutes and we had to gulp a few bites and then box it up to get to ACT Theater in time. And we were seated down in the basement pool room - rather dull atmosphere, but quiet at least. My Wee Pie Flight was disappointing - not as good as the food I've gotten in the past. Disappointing experience overall.

    While this place looks great with an English pub atmosphere, the management should improve their guest capacity vs their kitchen workforce ratio. We went to E&C before the 5th Ave Theater show and had to swallow our meal in 10min since completion of our order took 50 min. We would leave more money in this establishment (had to skip deserts) if we would get our main meals in a timely fashion.

    Fun vibe! Fairly large menu. Sweet potato fries were yummy. Standard burger was fresh & tasty, but slightly undercooked for my preference.

    A vibrant pub atmosphere with a typical pub style menu and friendly waitstaff. The Shepherd's Pie is delicious, as are the meat pies made with a flakey pastry crust. This was our first visit, and we will definitely return.

    My wife & I had dinner here prior to a show at the 5th Avenue. We arrived just before 6pm so we caught the tail end of the happy hour crowd. They were annoyingly loud, but left shortly after we arrived and the noise level dropped significantly. My wife ordered the noble salad with chicken and I had fish and chips. We both enjoyed our meals very much. The piece of fish I was served was huge and chips were very good. I didn't particularly care for the cole slaw and, even though E&C is trying to recreate a British pub experience, there were no peas (which was fine). The service was a tad slow, but not reduce the tip slow. It worked out fine as we arrived at the theater in plenty of time. I just wish the play had been as good as my meal.

    We went to the Elephant & Castle before a play at the Paramount Theater. It was in a good location, close to our parking spot and to the theater. We were greeted pleasantly and shown to our table by the greeter. Our server was very efficient and our orders were out within a reasonable time. My wife had the fish and chips and it was a very generous portion. I had the chicken strips and it was also a generous portion. The prices were reasonable for what we got. We would definitely return if we were in the area.

    Our server was very upfront on wait times and paid attention to our dietary needs and preferences, even noticing an issue with one plate and sending it back before it reached the table. The food came out great, the Crisps and Dips were just enough to go around; the fish & chips was plenty. We didn't order dessert but saw the next table over and the portions were huge! We stayed at least an hour longer after paying but the staff let us friends chat unbothered. It was a wonderful experience, definitely will recommend to other visiting friends & family.

    Made reservation for 6ppl online the week before. When we arrived we were seated immediately. We received a link to view the menu which was nice and a more hygienic approach. Server was attentive and while some of the menu items were not available at the time the food was great and well portioned. We will definitely be back.

    Food, service and value quite good. Very pleasant and tranquil dining on outdoor patios. One major flaw was the host who sat us. A couple just before us, without a reservation, requested outdoor seating. They were shown to, probably the least desirable table and they declined and were sat elsewhere. We had an Open Table reservation and were shown to the same table the couple before us had rejected. We, too, refused and after receiving a disgruntled look, were seated elsewhere which was fine. Frankly, had we not been seated elsewhere we would have left.

    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.

    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.
