    Eaten here once before and had slow service but put it down to reopening just after a lockdown and being quite full. This time however, there were 4 tables, some of which were already midway through there food. Our order was taken and we then had a 40 minute wait. The food itself was ok, not quite worth the long wait and we were only asked if we wanted any more drinks once our food had been served. I would definitely say there are better places in Doncaster to eat and will bring out better food in half the time we waited tonight.

    Elephant & Castle - DoncasterResponded on 26 July 2022Hi, I am really sorry to hear that you experience was not to our usual high standard of service and food. If you could please send us a an email to doncastermod@elephantandcastle.ie we can look into this further. Many thanks, Team Elephant & Castle Doncaster

    Food was average, definitely better places that make a burger and fries in Doncaster. We orderd burgers. Its a shame we weren't offered the full menu, it was very limited. Staff we're friendly tho food took a while to come out but nothing terrible. I'd visit again to try the full menu and something different from the standard burger. Also staff were very nice to bring out a birthday dessert-ish more like a message written in some chocolate drizzle but still a very nice gesture.

    Wonderful evening. Excellent food and lovely attentive staff. Highly recommend trying this hidden gem. Parked in the frenchgate centre car park. Felt very safe inside the frenchgate centre where the restaurant is located. The signature chicken wings starter were fantastic. All four main meals cooked to perfection generous portions and couldn't fault anything. Deserts, coffee and espresso martini also very nice. A very enjoyable evening. Please visit and try for yourself you won't be disappointed.

    Massively underestimated Elephant & Castle. Service was great, the staff are lovely and not at all intrusive on your evening. The food quality was excellent. The food portions are an absolute shock! Was not expecting the starter sizes at all! We got 2 starters between 4 and honestly, it could of been the main meal! Refreshing to find somewhere that’s not over priced and under portioned. Cocktails = stunning. 10/10 would recommend and will definitely be back!

    Amazing food! We had three different types of burgers and they were hot, excellent taste and quality and the skin on fries were delicious. The portion size was very generous too! We all enjoyed our meal. Only shame was that even though it was a Friday it was quiet as I don’t think people have realised this restaurant exists and is open with it being in frenchgate! It is and is so worth a visit. The cocktails were fab too! It is definitely value for money.We will certainly be visiting again.
