This has a bar area in the front with a restaurant area in the back. A really nice patio.

The quality of the food really can depend on what your order. I think most things are overpriced, but the burger is great for $9 (make sure to order it medium or less, and I urge you to order it less than medium even).

Tap list rotates and is usually quite good with some Ontario micros and imports. Bottle list is one of the better ones in the city and it is fairly priced (for example, Don De Dieu is just over $5).

Decided to stop by while in the neighbourhood based on the two previous reviews and all I can say is that a lot must have changed in the past couple of years. The tap list here was terrible. The hoppiest things on tap were Hoptical Illusion and Mill Street ESB. Of the 14 taps, it was a struggle to find a single beer that excited me to drink. We planned to have dinner and a couple of pints here but didn't want to stay for another, so we didn't have food either.

Atmosphere is British Pub and very typical but nice enough.

This place is NOT worth a visit. Do yourself a favour and walk 10 minutes down the road to The Only.

I was impressed with this convenient and understated bar, on Dansforth and Broadview. Medium sized, several restaurant tables, mdoerate sized bar with 14 taps, all craft beer, including the in-demand hoppy ones. Sixty bottles listed, the majority craft, including a full selection of Unibroue bottles. Friendly enough, and a bit more laid back than the average Toronto beer. Worth a drop in if you are this Big Carrot health food shopping area. Not a big advertiser but a decent place to get a beer if you are not downtown.
