Situated in a century-old building directly across from the Wellesley subway station, the Fiddler’s Green Pub provides all the classic ambiance of an Irish social establishment, with facilities for private parties in addition to the public bar. Originally known as the Somerset House, it’s the kind of familiar setting that’s most associated with festive drink, food and conversation. The second-floor Henly Room can accommodate up to 60 people and the game room is consistently equipped with dartboards, backgammon, shuffleboard and more.
Between pours of Guinness and other brands of beer, wine and liquor from behind the bar, a full menu is designed to complement every visit. Starters include nachos, chicken wings, calamari, potato wedges and jalapeno peppers, along with a soup of the day. Salads range from emerald isle to warm chicken, along with Caesar and Greek. The sandwich menu features a classic burger, steak sandwich on a foccacia bun, chicken quesadilla, a clubhouse and hot roast beef. And this wouldn’t be an Irish pub without offerings like fish and chips, bangers and poundie, shepherd’s pie, Gaelic coodle, steak and eggs and beef and Guinness pie. Group plates let everyone at the table dig in, with items like tempura shrimp, potato boats and onion rings designed for indulgent sharing.
Late night, the kitchen delivers baskets of fries, onion rings or nacho chips and deep- fried chicken fingers designed to satisfy those cravings before last call. Being at the corner of Yonge Street makes getting home by public transit or cab a breeze.
