Elephant & Castle is a chain of English style pubs, and the one I chose for a mini (make that micro-mini) VT meeting was one down on King Street. It is a big cheery and cozy pub that is great for an after work drink, an office lunch, or dinner, something to eat & drink before the theatre or a sporting event, or just to meet some friends.
The staff have always been friendly and welcoming, and Tuesday night was no exception to that. Gotta love a place with Guinness and Kilkenny... and some local brews too.

Favorite Dish: I've enjoyed the fish and chips (choice of halibut or cod), the burgers, and last night I decided to try the Stuffed Yorkshire Pudding. It was good but a little too stodgy and heavy.The roast beef was good, as were all the individual parts of it - lovely crispy cooked green beans *mmmmm* I think in the future I will go with something a little lighter - but then again on a cold winter's evening that would be great.
The chocolate brownie was incredible - and HUGE! Made to be shared with a friend for sure!
I enjoyed the Elephant & Castle Ale - nice and crisp after the mellow Kilkenny Cream Ale.
On my most recent visit - to the Yonge Street location (just south of College, at Gerrard) I had the club sandwich with salad - and it was great. The salad was a little soggy from the balsamic vinegarette dressing, but it was still good and tangy. The service was great, and the guinness excellent.
