As our hotel was across the street we came here a few times. It is open late if you are looking for late night drinks, but we also came here for dinner and were pleased with the food and service.

Food and beverages were great worth the wait. The server was OK but she was over whelmed and kitchen was not quick. This place is packed in the evenings but be prepared for a wait

Had lunch outside on a hot summer day. Great beers, food was nice. Staff were friendly. They had baby changing facilities which was a plus. Location is good. Downside - toilets and baby changing were dirty, a bit expensive for a pub.

The best garlic bread I've ever eaten! Service was great, food was great. Will definitely return! Serving portions very generous. Just watching other people's food come out was making me more hungry. Excellent pub food and also nachos and wings and burgers.

We wanted to grab a drink and honestly this was the only outdoor bar with seating. The beer was delicious service was slow and the place was lacking decor. Decent place to stop by if you want a quick beer.

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
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

Nestled in along The Esplanade, Scotland Yard Pub has been a Toronto institution for well over 35 years. The pub is a landmark of the St. Lawrence market neighbourhood in Old Town Toronto. We offer a comfortable and casual place for our guests to come, relax and enjoy themselves. With an array of draft beers from around the world as well as the best local product available, there is something to please everyone's taste.
