I had to visit this restaurant as I read so many bad reviews. Strange I know but I had to know what an English style restaurant in the States was like. To be honest it was ok. English'ish' ... pleasant staff and the food was...More

A congenial atmosphere. Spoiled a little for me by being told to "go sit at the bar" because the waitress wanted my table to push together for a large room group. I would have been fine with a move, in fact I moved to a...More

I was looking for a British pub to have a light dinner after the theater on a Saturday afternoon. Elephant and Castle certainly fit the bill, though "light" is a bit of an understatement! I had the mini-Yorkshire puddings, traditional poutine, and bread pudding. It...More

Old England style pub with traditional ales, decorations and a real "pub feel" to it. Quite a large place with entrances on both parallel streets, a good sized function room downstairs and plenty of high top, dining tables and bar seating upstairs. I've been visiting...More

I came here for lunch and ordered calamari and poutine. The calamari was very rubbery and did not seem freshly made. The chips in the poutine were OK but the gravy and cheese were a bit sloppy. It all reminded me of a school cafeteria...More

Chicken pot pie was decent, steak and mushroom pie was light on mushrooms. Neither were yummy, but certainly met our needs as we were too hungry to look elsewhere. Sweet potato fries were very good! Can be very noisy with the after work bar crowd...More

Pleasant cafe for a beverage. On an out of town trip, colleagues and I stopped here before heading to the airport. We each ordered a glass of wine. When the wine arrived, we noted that it was quite generous (in fact, two of us did...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
