Unfortunately just another fake Brit pub. The food is good, and the service is okay, but the beer selection is lacking. Only decent beers now are Sam Adams, New Castle, Bass, and Upper Canada Dark on tap. The rest are standard InBev brands. They used to have stuff like Tennent's, Caffrey's, and Belhaven to distinguish themselves from other places. Not anymore. Indeed, The Weasel conveys itself as a classic English pub, yet doesn't even carry iconic beers from Fuller's and Sam Smith (which aren't that difficult to get in Ontario). No cask ale, and there likely never will be. With 20+ taps and a beer focused food menu (Stella Burger, Steak & Guinness Pie), I can see why this was added as a 'beer bar,' but it's no longer a destination given other options in London. Avoid.

Located in North East London, this is your typical "British Pub". No really special beers, with all of the macros. The tap list is OK, with some harder to find imports for this area, but no micros or seasonals. Bottle list is standard. Food is typical pub grub, whish is always good, but not mind blowing. Service is fast, even when the place is busy, which is always. They have scotch tastings if that is your thing. No real reason to go here for the beer though, as you can find a lot of these anywhere.

A British pub, with plenty of imports on draft. Food is a step up from your typical pub-grub. Food and beer is very British-oriented, and both are an excellent value.

There's plenty of Scotch for the malt advocates, and they hold regular tastings as well.

There's a large patio for the summer, with adjacent mini-golf and driving range.

There's an upper floor for the winter (no a/c in the upper floor). Upper floor can be booked for events, with only a minimum food order. I had my wedding rehearsal dinner here.
