I was quite pleased when I went to Beaconsfield and saw that they did not have any beer on their menu that you can get from any old sports bar or pub; rather, they have an assortment of local and international beers, all of which get served in their proper glasses. The place has a great atmosphere, with soft and ambient lighting, dark furnishings, and a patio, and both the employees and the patrons were very friendly and polite. The only things I did not like about Beaconsfield are that there is no table service, and there are only two unisex washrooms for the entire place.
A great neighbourhood spot across from the Drake Hotel, The Beaconsfield offers good sized meals like salmon with spaghetti squash, poutine and short ribs.
More relaxed and less image conscious than neighbouring Drake Hotel, The Beaconsfield is paramount for casual conversation amongst friends.

Their chilli fries are to die for, the vibe is really laid back and lighting is delightfully dim.
If you stop in for a drink before hitting the town, you might find yourself staying until last call. This one-room, upscale watering hole can’t help but host a friendly, casual vibe within its close quarters. Modest black walls, vintage beaded light fixtures and an inviting bar-front picture window create a cozy environment to settle in with friends. Opens at 5 p.m. daily. Reservations... more
The Beaconsfield a casual bistro-like eatery has a charm of its own and is now nestled in a building that was once a bank. The staff is friendly and ensures that your evening goes well.

The menu boasts of delicious venison,... more
