Profile Last Updated: January 13, 2009
Established in 1876, Ye Olde Brunswick House truly is one of Toronto’s oldest taverns. Going through many phases and growing pains over the years, “The Brunny” as it is sometimes referred to – and still does – has sported many faces, the most recent being applied during major renovations in 2005. This facelift has brought the establishment quite close to its original splendor while still maintaining important elements of a modern facility. A variety of gold-trimmed mirrors and other graceful artifacts and images line the walls between 11 plasma televisions hanging over the light paint and dark woods.
A Shifty Suds Slinger
Ensuring that all facets of life are enticed through Ye Olde Brunswick House’s double doors, a variety of the aforementioned “faces” show themselves depending on the evening. Working strongly as a family restaurant by day, the venue easily breezes into subtle pub/pool house by evening and slips into its slinky, youthful, energetic club at night. With the means to house 10-400 people, Ye Olde Brunswick House is ready to assist in making any family function or corporate event unforgettable at the drop of hat.
All That And A Plate Of Nachos
For those simply looking to enjoy a decent meal, Ye Olde Brunswick House has refined its menu to offer a taste of everything to anyone. It’s yet another face kicked off by 10 draughts and extending into a wide menu including daily specials, wings, nachos and burgers, salads, pizza and pasta, vegetarian stir fry and multiple chicken, steak and fish options. Maybe it’s the chameleon-like essence to The Brunny that has made it an enduring city landmark.
