The fourth Elephant & Castle has opened in the bustling Beacon South Quarter, bringing an exciting new addition to the Sandyford area. The menu will feature the same great dishes that make Elephant & Castle a firm favourite. From the fluffy omelettes, caesar salads and juicy burgers, and, of course, those crispy, spicy wings. We’re focusing on friendly, laid-back service; tasty as ever food and a relaxed atmosphere - everything Elephant & Castle lovers have come to expect from a visit to our place.

Safety measures put in place for Covid were excellent. I have been to several restaurants since Covid and this was by far the the place I have felt safest. Lovely staff and food was excellent.

We had a lovely experience in this restaurant. The food was delicious and very reasonable and the ambiance was lovely. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate to our needs, especially our waitress Anne. We felt very safe in terms of socially distancing measures with the tables being very spread out and screens etc having been put in place. Wonderful experience and will be back again after lockdown!

Went for a meal with my partner one of the final days before lockdown again and had a great time.
The lady that took us in, brought us to our table and served us through the night was fantastic, very friendly we wish we caught her name.
Food was also excellent.
Had a great night and look forward to going back again

Service and food was excellent, however I think the advice to restaurants is to keep the music level lower to avoid diners having to raise their voices (didn’t bother us as we were a family). Also at one stage three staff members stood at the bar area and removed their masks to have a conversation.

Elephant & Castle - Beacon
Responded on 23 December 2020

Hi JeanetteU Thank you for your feedback and I'm happy to hear the food and service was good. In relation to the masks, our staff have been working in pods together since last March and we wear the masks at work to protect ourselves and customers from each other. As our customers remove the masks at their table, our staff also need to be able to have a break from wearing them. We have taken extreme measures ensuring everyone's safety and I do hope you can understand this from our side. Fiona

We went to Elephant & Castle to celebrate our daughters communion. From the excellent safety measures in place to the fuss that everyone made of my daughter the experience was fantastic. The absolute icing on the cake was when my daughter was presented with her own dessert specially decorated with Happy Communion written in syrup! We willbe back but will also alwsys remember how special her day was made by all at Elephant &Castle!

Burgers were ok but chips were undercooked. Really don't understand why items can't be cooked properly!

Hi AidanM Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback from your recent visit. I'm sorry to hear our wings did not live up to our usual standard.
