Fox And Firkin51 Eglinton Ave E, Toronto, ON M4P 1G7
This modern English pub on Eglinton makes a great layover for those looking to quench their thirst. The sun-splashed patio is packed in the summer and the main dining room offers sleek decor and a welcoming atmosphere. They have an excellent array of taps which includes a small selection of local craft beers right next to some classic British and Irish favourites.
It definitely has a sporty vibe to it, although you may have to jostle other patrons in putting the Leafs game on instead of Premiership soccer. With the time difference, though, those occasions will be few and far between and you’ll usually be able to cheer on the hometown team without interruption. They regularly have beer specials so finding one to match what you order from the menu is never a problem. Tip: the burger is the way to go.
