This was our second trip to Seattle. We usually try something new every night. We went to Elephant and Castle twice. Great fish and chips! Shepards pie was delicious. Atmosphere was very relaxing and service top notch

Elephant and Castle is one of our main dinner spots on theater nights. We've had many of the dishes, including fish and chips, shepherds pie, pot pie, and my favorite, the Yorkshire pudding. They're all good. I wish the pot and shepherds pies were about 25% larger, but they're probably right-portioned. The service is always good and you can get... More

Why eat over priced food when you can eat for 1/2 the cost during happy hour? Beers and apps are reduced in this centrally located restaurant. The ambiance is hip, but if there is a convention in town, watch-out. It will take forever to get a seat.

Good food, not great, but what do you expect in a Pub? I had the deluxe burger and my sister had the ruben and both were good. Nice atmosphere, friendly servers, but they could be just a bit more attentive.

My wife and I were tired and staying at the Hilton a few blocks away. I noticed it on my way to Walgreens for supplies. Everything was top notch. I had the Shepherd's pie. My wife had the turkey club. They were both outstanding, really top quality. The service and ambiance was just what we needed. They have old speckled... More

We had a couple of beers, french fries and nachos. It was not a costly place and lived the Nachos. We spend a nice couple of hours there. We realized at the end there were pool tables but it was too late. The place is of course vet British style which reminded me of London so great place.

Came in for dinner and had a great meal. The draught beer selection was not extensive but hit all the right notes. I selected one of my favorites, Boddingtons. For dinner I had the shepards pie that was very tasty and just the right portion. The staff was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was inviting.

This was a good spot for pub food - steak pie, shepherds pie, etc. I had a beer and the shepherds pie (something i would not normally order, but hey, in a pub, so why not). It was quite good and filling.
