We went here for lunch on a Sunday and we are so happy we found this gem! Our server Michael was so nice, he's a real asset to the place! We all had wings which are half price on Sundays and they were delicious! The wraps are great and the potato boats were yummy! The prices are very reasonable and... More

A friend of ours organized a party here. We were all in the second floor party room. We had two bartenders who were really nice. Food was served on large platters. Really great pub food. I would like to go back and try the actual restaurant that was really busy.

We had food and beer an evening at the pub. The decor is nothing special and lacks that coziness you might expect from a pub. Daily food specials are well priced. Other items look expensive to me (nachos at 20$?). The food was ok. The nation is appealing when the weather is good (it is towards the north, so no... More

Drink specials, pub fare, outdoor patio with self-seating, occasional nightly events such as karaoke. The beer was cold and the food seemed very fresh. Service was great for us.

This is a good neighbourhood bar with pleasant staff, a good selection of drinks and a good choice of food. The outside seating area is great, inside is clean and comfortable. Great location just opposite the Wellesley subway station!

I arrived at about 7:40pm on Wednesday July 6 to grab a bite to eat on their patio. Their patio wasn't busy. Occasionally a waitress would come out, and I would try to get her attention but apparently I was either invisible or it was not in her job description to check on new guests. After 20 minutes I left.... More

Food is good but just average pub fare. Patio is nice but watch out for step level changes - saw many people stumble.

My husband & I were in the city for just 5 days and ate here our last evening in Toronto.It was within the same block as the Wellesley subway station, an easy walk for us.

It is pretty run down and outdated, but I still enjoyed my time here. It is a very friendly atmosphere all around from both staff and the public. I was very impressed with the mix of ages, both young people and old timers. Rare to come across a place where it feels like it's a pretty even split. Karaoke night... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
