This pub serves terrific grub. Affable servers make for a pleasant, convivial atmosphere. Upscale versions of classic pub food. Great burgers, bangers and ploughman's plates. Excellent beer selection.

This pub may be too off-the-beaten path for many Toronto visitors but this place is a gem in an interesting & established Toronto neighbourhood (Cabbagetown) - certainly seemed to be a locals favorite. Server was excellent and cuisine simple yet upscale pub fare. Wife and...More

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
