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 Shepherd’s Pie.
Since 1977, Elephant & Castle has rolled out its well-worn welcome mat to anyone and everyone looking for a good time. Whether that means cheering on your beloved team, 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.

    Went for lunch on a Tuesday. Place was pretty busy as the weather was nice and inside and outside patio were pretty full. One of us had the beef dip on a gluten free bun with onion rings. Good portions. Dip itself wasn't as tasty as it sometime is for some reason. The other of us had fish and chips. Fish and chips were really good. Again good portions (just 1 stick of fish was plenty) although the coleslaw was a little disappointing. Overall though we enjoyed it and will be back again.

    While being escorted to the table the hostess walked very fast and was about 15 feet away from me when I spoke that I can’t move that quickly. She quickly apologized and left as soon as she showed me my table. The wait staff need to be better prepared when bringing drinks. We each ordered a 2nd coffee, which was brought. No cream or milk was brought even though we had both with the first cup. We had to wait until another staff person went by our table to ask. Even then we were only given 3 little containers of milk. I’ve dined at the Elephant and Castle several times and this is my first bad experience. It was busy, but not enough for service like that.

    We often eat at this pub before attending the theatre. Our waiter Zav was excellent. The food quality not so great. The turkey club was a lot of bread, but short on turkey. The bacon on it was undercooked and I couldn’t eat it. Two of us ordered it and felt the same way. I like the place, so will give it another try,

    The food and service are good, but the noise level is too high. I go there for food, drinks and a good time with friends, I don't go there to listen to music. Background music is supposed to be in the background, not overpowering everyone. I can't talk and joke with friends when we can't hear each other, or watch a sports game and talk about it over some drinks. Lower sound levels = more happiness and return customers.

    We enjoyed the food very much. My friend had the Sunday roast beef dinner, which she said was delicious. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with noble salad…great choices. Service improved as the meal went on but it was acceptable overall. We both agreed that we will return.

    Favourite items from the old menu are gone. Main dish Salads were a bit skimpy. After dinner Coffees were delivered cold, not even lukewarm, cold. Server gave us the impression that we were overbearing when requesting hot coffee and so sad, he would have to make a new pot.

    We we're mislead by her omission. 1 She charged us $18.75 for a 9 ounce glass of wine not telling us there was a less expensive glass. 2 She charges us for dip that we shouldn't have been. Is this what you call customer service. We have been there many times in the past. Trans number 434016

    Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday before catching the matinee at the Royal Alex. Started sitting outside but a brief rain shower had us move in. There was no issues with changing tables. Service was attentive and food was enjoyable. Great location to the theatres.

    We came for a quick dinner before a film and our server was so accommodating and delightful. Our food came very quickly and it was tasty and nicely presented. Our server was so pleasant and made us feel very welcome. We were out in plenty of time for our film. We would definitely recommend Elephant & Castle.

    Since it was open until 1am we booked for a post show snack and night cap, weekday advice, kitchen closes earlier. We got in just under the wire at 1130pm..so if planning factor that in. Otherwise food prep was fast & great 👍

    Going to the theatre. Was seated next to a very LOUD group of young men at the bar. The bartender was quiet but he did nothing to restrain the boisterous shouting. Choose you seating appropriately. The Mediterranean flat bread was tasty but really hard to saw through the crust. Fish & chips were great. Good service.

    My friend and I met at The Elephant and Castle for lunch before going to the theatre. The menu is predominantly pub food, which I enjoy. I ordered the deluxe hamburger with a side of "noble salad". I didn't know what a noble salad was but the server explained that it was a green salad with dried cranberries and some seeds and nuts. Both the burger and salad were delicious. My friend ordered a Caesar salad with chicken and was equally satisfied although she found the salad very large and could not finish it all.
