The service was good each time we visited. My husband and I stayed at the attached hotel so it was very convenient. The food was decent bar food, but nothing special. And we were disappointed at the lack of English atmosphere.

The E&C is attached to the Club Quarters Hotel, Central Loop where we stayed for a business trip. Serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast was good, with ample choices for whatever appetite you have. The dinner menu had a lot of excellent choices (mainly British style fare). I recommend the Steak and Mushroom Pie.

I was in Chicago for a business trip, arriving on the late side and not interested in straying far from my Loop hotel. I was trying to find a good craft beer bar, but a lot of places around there close at 9 pm during the week. In fact, I tried another place first, walking in around 8:15 pm, only... More

We had a great first experience here; the waitress was so nice and we got a good amount of food for the money! The food was very good, too! The bar atmosphere kicked in at 11:00 or so and it got a little loud but that's part of the atmosphere.

We had stayed at a nearby hotel in the past and had wanted to visit but hadn't. This visit we did and were very disappointed. Upon entering the hostess didn't say anything except hello. We looked down and she was off to seat us even though we were going to sit at the bar. When she finally turned around to... More

It was such a treat to find a piece of England on our visit to Chicago! Being British we had high expectations but it did not disappoint, it was so good we visited twice! The food was fantastic, Yorkshire puddings were spot on, it even had the classic English pub carpets. Highly recommend this place, the staff I met were... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch with family and decided to try Elephant Castle. Ordered fish tacos and turkey sandwich, both were cold and with no flavor. Didn't like the place at all.

Great British pub with a very interesting menu, it used the butter chicken sauce intelligently in its menu. Don't miss Slum dog, the butter chicken poutinerie And curried chicken flat bread. The Pimms cocktail is amazing too. Worth your visit , piece of London in Chicago! My family loved it!

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
