The Duke of Gloucester
The Duke of Gloucester is one of Toronto’s more authentic British pubs and is known to attract many ex-pats. In fact, the bar was actually built in Britain and shipped over here. The Duke has the traditional red couches, deep burgundy wallpaper and patterned tin ceiling of the best British pubs. This is a favourite place for University of Toronto alumni and friends. There are 14 beers on tap, and two English ciders available. The menu includes some unique dishes and vegetarian items as well as pub favourites such as shepherd’s pie and bangers and mash, and the food is cheap.
