Love this place. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere. The food is good but it's probably best to make a reservation as it gets busy! Well worth a visit.

We had a great experience at the Dispensary. We have had a long night and thought we'd go for late brunch/lunch. Most of us choose the Death Star Canteen Burger, which was cooked like it should. A friend had the salmon brunch with pancakes which...More

I can honestly say I have NEVER received service like this in my life. You walk in and are made to feel like such an inconvenience from the sour-faced waiting staff DRAWING their eyes off you for daring to interrupt their conversation. AVOID AVOID AVOID

I was looking for a restaurant with an English theme. I found this pub on Trip Advisor and read the feedback. I wasn't disappointed. The service was excellent, with an English speaking waiter, the food was great and there was a really good atmosphere.

Service is great, waitresses are very kind; they even suggested that they could customize the burger since Sunday brunch is a bit more limited than normal menu. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. In terms of price, it's ok...

I went to the dispensary twice in one day during a brief trip to Toulouse. I visited first with an English colleague and were so warmly welcomed (including free 'special' shots), that we returned with French colleagues later. We didn't eat, but the food looked...More

After traveling for over a week in France I was longing for any vegetable other than lettuce. Found some here! I had the vegetarian special, and though some parts were deep fried and others were stuffed with cheese, it felt healthy! Awesome beer selection, too....More

Inspired by the best of British, The Dispensary is a somewhere between a local hideaway, a curiousity cabinet and a good old British pub. The restaurant offers both French and British cuisine, pub grub, brunch, breakfast, British and Continental food and much more. We cater for kids and vegetarians too. The essential factor is that everything is fresh and homemade. The restaurant is open every night apart drom Monday at 7.30Pm and also saturday (12 - 3pm) and sunday for brunch from 12 until 3.30Pm. Reservations are advised.
