I chose a Stilton burger, now normally I would not chose a burger at all it isn’t something I eat. It was delicious. The skin on fries yummy.
For dessert - Chocolate Delice with vanilla ice cream sooo rich and delicious.
Chose a bottle of French Sauvignon Blanc well two there was 3 of us drinking . It was quite good addition to the meal it over priced either. Finished with a Cointreau and black coffee.
Our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal and staff were really polite and helpful. We really hope it remains open as we will definitely return .

It was the first time I had been to this establishment. The pub is beautifully decorated. The menu was very different but what we chose was very enjoyable. The staff were extremely attentive. My only disappointment was being charged £9.99 for a large glass of red wine, bit overpriced. Probably visit again but not in a hurry.

Very expensive.. £3.50 for an orange juice or apple juice is ridiculous.
There was no veg with the kids meal and the mash was reconstituted.. There were none of the added extra which would make it good value. A lunch for 5 (2 children) with no alcohol or desserts came to £67.50.. Really disappointed

A friend and I went for the first time and really enjoyed it. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make us feel welcome! The food was very good, quick service and the wine flowed! We also had cocktails which were really good but we felt they were a little bit pricey in comparison to other venues. Overall though, it's a great place to go and we will definitely be going back! Highly recommend it!

Amazing design inside, very welcoming. We had hot wings with blue cheese, we were expecting to get like 4-6 wings but when it came there was like 20 or more, for an appetizer. The lady that was serving us said it was a 1kg of chicken. It was delicious btw.

The staff was friendly and extremely professional, always making sure that we are ok and ensure that we enjoy our stay there. It isn't a pub or anything like that so the prices are a bit higher, I'd love to have a bit cheaper cocktails and some selection of fruit cider either in bottles or on draft. Overall a great restaurant.

Would recommend anyone who want to try some new flavours and experience a very welcoming atmosphere.

Having worked in the USA (Louisville) extensively I became a huge fan of Buffalo Wild Wings and have never been able to come anywhere close to getting any in the U.K., so seeing spicy wings on the menu at the Elephant and Castle in my home town Doncaster I just had to try them, I was not disappointed they were delicious and the fries were equally as nice the portion size is huge enough for my lunch and lunch the next day, one happy customer who will most certainly be back

Everyone was absolutely wonderful! Drinks were so good, and the food? Literally so amazing!! My friends and I were so happy with everything. There was a wait on food but it wasn’t anyone’s fault, but they were all super kind and reassuring about the whole situation! I’ve already messaged my fiancé about coming here so him and I will definitely be coming! But I spoke to the girls and I think this will be one of our regular places to go to for after work food/ drinks. I could probably go on but yeah it was amazing and I’m very happy with everything!

The servers were really attentive and polite. Food was absolutely lovely! The place was clean and the music and atmosphere were chilled.
The only thing that let you down was the lack of vegetarian options! Tired old veggie burger option and salad. Don't get me wrong - the veggie burger was delicious! However, I would love to see options added.
