Midtown Toronto meets the English corner pub. That's the idea behind our cozy pub at Yonge and Eglinton. We've been pulling pints and serving classic pub grub here for more than 30 years, which makes us experts on keeping the good times going. Come on by to see what we mean.
The Duke of Kent gets busy, but it is a really great pub. I like their $5 food options which are a good size for a snack. They come in a little metal shopping basket sort of container. My only criticism is the manager is somewhat overbearing in his concern for the customers. The servers do a wonderful job and he needs to chill.
Duke of Kent is one of my "last-resort" kinda bars. I find the food and drinks fairly overpriced and the ambience isn't anything that special in my opinion. The food portions are small but I will admit I love the idea of the snack portions. The steak was very good, cooked wonderfully medium rare and seasoned nicely. The calamari was meh, not crispy as the batter was very thin.

Their fish and chips is actually unreal for a chain! Andrew is the best. I go by just for him. Witty, smart and warm. If you're looking for a good time to by on Tuesday or Wednesday late night and your in for a serious treat!
