With high backed, plush red couches, burgundy wallpaper, pool tables, dartboards, soccer on the "telly" and types of draft beer, there's no mistaking the authenticity of this pub at the Yonge -Bloor cross downtown. There is live music every Saturday night and a weekly dart league for those whose aim is true. The traditional British cuisine is augmented with some creative Euro-twists. Tandoori chicken breast and hummus tapas are offered alongside the more conventional orders of fish and chips, steak and mushroom pie, and Irish stew.
Good downtown pub for watching British football teams in action at home and abroad. Domestic games and internationals can be rammed, Champions League at 3pm with a pint and ok food is a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. Multiple TVs mean you're not stuck with Man Utd. all the time. Some games come with a fee.
Good pub quiz on Thursday nights. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, watch the stairs on the way out if you've had a few.
Now that they fixed the front, they need to renovate the interior!

The place to watch English football/soccer in downtown Toronto. It has a great atmosphere if you want to grab a pint and eat something from a typical pub menu (great soups on special in the winter and tasty roti all year long, but don't assume that the British fair is any good). Also, if you plan to have more than a few pints, keep a close eye on your bill as they have a tendency to overcharge. The place is need of major renovations. It is a dirty and rundown pub, but this does not seem to bother the English Premiership fans.
