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.

A nice pub in a great location. The patio has lots of space and is a quaint Oasis downtown. Good food and good service, you should definitely pay a visit. Great for a few drinks and snacks, and the entrees are tasty as well.

Cold and unfriendly service. The atmosphere is not welcoming.
We left right after the first drink.

Open table allowed me (and others) to make a reservation while the restaurant is closed. This is during a time where getting a same-day reservation is impossible. No warning, no call. Huge waste of time.

Was available on open table, outdoor dining at 6:30pm. Reservations made but restaurant was CLOSED. Did not get any notification at all. This was for a bday get together. Luckily Gabby’s was a few blocks down and open. First time a reservation on open table didn’t work out.

I live all the way in the West End Burlington and I booked this way in advance on Monday five days before the actual reservation I drove all the way down with the three people that I made a reservation with and you guys are closed! I have used OpenTable app before so I trusted that I didn’t have to call so by the time I got there when I did call I was told that that location is temporarily closed!
It was my girlfriends birthday and this was our first patio arrangement since summer of 2019 and I really don’t understand why OpenTable app is available for making reservations if you guys are closed!!! You need to update the service pronto very disappointed such a waste of time our expectations were not meant at all. Somebody could’ve called us back to let us know I got a confirmation email the day before so I confirmed that yes we will be showing up and that is what we did and my girlfriend was very upset however we ended up finding another place in the danforth but we shouldn’t of had to look for a Plan B because this plan a was sought out! Thanks for nothing!!
So I am leaving a review because you guys just sent me an email....how was your visit??? Please leave a review so that’s what I’m doing and I hope you guys do you read this and act upon it quickly!!!

The staff did well running out to the patio. Coffee was luke warm and there was no sanitizer when recording names and using CC machine, but overall great with the patio heaters.

The lower ambiance score was because we were on a shaded side patio, which i assume was created for Covid. No flowers on patio fence, etc. Quite bleak.
