Like every cuisine in The 6ix, British fare is one that’s always been celebrated, with lots of places to check out. Whether you’re in the mood for fine-dining or something more casual, there’s a restaurant for it. And one of the more recent ones to join the scene is Saint John’s Tavern. The British pub in Toronto has found its home in the city’s vibrant Entertainment District.
Saint John’s Tavern British Pub In Toronto
The new dining spot comes from Brian James, who is also behind Piccolo, and Melrose on Adelaide. The restaurant is an homage to British cuisine, the menu bringing all the stops with a various selection of classics. James played a role in curating the menu itself, in partnership with Chef Kyle Kadas.
To start with the small plates, you can experience dishes like Walnut Scotch Egg, Devils On Horseback (double smoked bacon wrapped dates), Thick Cut British Chips and more. One of the vegetarian options include Welsh Rarebit, which comes with sourdough, fire roasted tomatoes and crispy leek.
Moving on to the large plates, there’s everything from Fish & Chips and Roasted Bone Marrow to Saint John’s Burger and Glory’s Chicken Curry. For vegan items, you can try out Foragers Pie and Chish & Fips (beer battered oyster mushrooms).
The restaurant’s drink menu is an extensive one. The cocktails are split into three sections, Heathrows, Classics and Pearsons. Beer and wine are also available as well. Saint John Tavern’s is located at 117 John Street. Reservations can be made online here.
