We first happened upon The Duke of Richmond last Summer when we stayed in Toronto while my family were visiting from Glasgow. My Glasgow Family were staying down the street at The Sheraton and we decided to get a room in The Sheraton as well and spend time with them together in Toronto.
In preparation for their visit I had researched various "Best British Pubs in Toronto" lists and I have to admit that The Duke of Richmond did not land on any of them. We happened to discover The Duke of Richmond quite accidentaly just through the proximity of the Pub to The Sheraton Hotel... And thank ye gods for that! This Pub is great!
I find the staff at The Duke to be very service oriented. Upon entering the pub you'll find that you are always greeted quite warmly by a member of the staff (ether a hostess, a manager, or someone behind the bar). The food is very tasty (I'm quite fond of their chicken curry) and they have a delighful selection of pints on tap (both domestic, imported, and craft brew).
Since our initial discovery last Summer, my wife and I have taken our kids back to this Pub on a few recent occasion through the winter. The four of us are massive Liverpool FC supporters and we love to go into the pub on a Sunday morning and watch the match whilst enjoying a late breaky or early lunch when the weekend game kicks off at 11:00am.
I have discovered that the staff are definitely NOT Footie oriented but they are always very accomodating when we walk in at 11:00am and ask them to put on the Liverpool FC match.
I have to say that the atmosphere of this nice little pub, combined with a pint or two of Guinness, and LFC on the telly have made for some very memorable Sunday mornings over the past few months. Definitely check out this Pub if you happen to be in the area!!
