Better than average of any corporate owned pub I've been to. Independently run, thought to some creative choices on the menu, consistently good food. Usually go a Sunday for brunch, I believe one of the owners is there, he is very welcoming. Patio service is...More

This pub was convenient to my hotel and advertised in the room a 10% discount for showing key card ... which they did not honor. The filet I ordered was overcooked, and I wasn't even convinced it was a filet, as I've never had one...More

I stopped here after seeing a matinee show for an early dinner. What a great experience. I had been to this place back in the old Red Lion days, but never as Blake House. So much nicer and better run. Really pleasant décor and interior...More

This is our local pub and it's always great. In June, we hosted three parties there; two for Tony's birthday and one for my retirement. The staff went out of their way to make everything perfect for us, as we knew they would. We love...More

Our small office (12 people) in the financial district, often uses the Blake House to cater our business lunches. The menu is flexible and the prices are great. Our lunches have ranged from grilled salmon with a quinoa pilaf, to roasted chicken with ratatouille, to...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
