We had our Christmas dinner here for work. The food was good but it took ages to serve all of us. I would have thought the pub would have put more than one waitress on to serve over 65 of us. People had finished their...More

We went for Sunday Roast, the service was very slow and our food was cold! No Yorkshire pudding despite asking for it twice! Not a lot of meat and it was a bit fatty. Only two small roast potato's.

We went on Friday, for few after work-drinks. Big pub, inside few tables, scenic view of the bar. For sure during the winter can be really crowded of people but on Friday wasn't exactly really full, reason why we found a massive table for us....More

The Elephant Public House and Kitchen, within historical St Nicholas St, provides a new destination for informal dining and stylish drinks. The breathtaking ceiling height and features of this 200 year old Victorian pub give way to a recently refurbished interior designed in partnership with award winning bar designers Simple Simon design. As night falls, the Elephant's lighting and cool but comfortable furnishings combine to create an undeniably stylish and relaxed surrounding. We take extreme pride in our service and our staff look forward to welcoming you to The Elephant Public House. Relaxing at the bar, enjoying drinks and cocktails or sampling our first class seasonal food is a must
