Frequently Asked Questions



Does Elephant & Castle have vegetarian options?
While our pub classics, and most of English cuisine for that matter, are notoriously meat-centric, we offer plenty of choices for those of your party who are lacto-ovo vegetarian, including full-size salads, wraps and, yes, even soy chicken or beyond meat patties for your burgers. Just ask your server or check out our menu online 

Are there gluten-free options as well?
While we are not a gluten-free environment and products containing gluten are prepared in our kitchens, we do offer menu items that can be modified to accommodate a gluten sensitivity. Just ask your server or check out our menu online. 

How do I find information about allergens and nutrition? 

Under each of our menu items we have 2 icons. 

The EC Nutrition will provide you the nutritional information for our dishes. 

The EC Allergy will tell you the allergies within the dish. 

We are concerned for your well-being, so please alert us if you have any allergies or dietary concerns.  

Does Elephant & Castle serve takeout?

Yes, we have a few options for you to enjoy your E&C favourites at home.

You can order through our website for pick-up. For Canadian locations click here and for US locations click here.  

If you don’t feel like leaving the comforts of your home, most of our locations deliver 

In Canada you can find us on UberEATSDoor Dash and SkipTheDishes 

In the US you can find us on UberEATS, Door Dash, Postmates and Grub Hub  

That said, not all our items are resilient enough to travel well beyond the borders of our establishment. Please keep this in mind when you decide you fancy a bit of steak and ale pie while you stay up to watch the premier league.   

I heard they don’t have happy hour in England. Do you have happy hour?

Aye, they don’t have them, but we’re not in England, are we? We have daily special offerings at most of our locations. Check our website under specials for more. 

We’re an English pub, without all the English rules. Pretty brilliant, right?  

I took an awesome picture of my food. How can I share it with you?
I bet you’ve got right a stunning bit of photography on your hands, love. If you’d like to send it our way, go ahead and tag it on Instagram with #ElephantCastle. If we like it, we might even feature it on our social channels. And if we really like it, we’ll put in a good word for a knighthood or ladyship.

Does Elephant & Castle support local community events?

Why are you called Elephant & Castle?
We had a feeling you’d ask. After all, such a strange combination of words has a way of conjuring together visions of an unlikely friendship between a large land mammal and an obsolete defensive structure. In truth, our name comes from a neighborhood in south London. Plus, a proper English pub always has two names.
