ELEPHANT & CASTLE 3.5 out of 5
Entertainment District, 212 King St. W. (416) 598-4455 hours: 11:30am to 2:00am
Four of us decided to have some drinks and apps at the Elephant and Castle on King Street in the entertainment district (they have 20 locations throughout North America). We have been here many times before, for dinner specials and just drinks (good selection of draft beers). For our apps we ordered, the bruschetta and an order of nachos with chicken. The bruschetta was thin and kind of unusual and we didn't care for it. The nachos were very large portion, which allowed the four of us to fill up quickly. They were delicious.
We drank a selection of draft beers including, London Pride, Stella Artois, Innes and Gun and Kronenbourg 1664. This is a large Restaurant-Pub that has many different sections on the main floor including a long bar, a poolroom area and a large patio on the side in good weather.
It is always a lively place and can get very busy, especially after 4pm. During the week a number of sections are occupied by various office folk letting off steam and can get very boisterous. Service can be very slow - they could use more waitresses and bar tenders at busy times. All in all if you want a good draft (a little pricey), some good pub food and a friendly atmosphere this is always a good choice.
