The Monk's Table

Posted by Staff / Listed on October 5, 2009 / review policy

Monk's TableThe Monk's Table is the new name for the pub that used to be called Abbot on the Hill. The former partners have parted ways, hence the rename. It stills serves the same reliable pub food and have one of the best beer selection in the city. They have 17 beers on tap and another 17 in bottles, all of which are European imports. The British ale houses are well represented here (Fullers, Old Speckled Hen, etc.) but French, German and Dutch selections also make an appearance. The pub is one of only two places in Toronto that serve Abbot Ale on tap.

This is a great local watering hole. Great food. In fact the Monk is more of a gastropub. Try the buffalo shrimp. And good staff too. A week without a visit to the Monk is a week wasted. (Adam and Melissa did not pay me to write this.)

This is a terrific place to eat and drink. Lester, in the kitchen, is creative and the daily soup is always worth eating.

Great spot. Just great. Fantastic atmosphere in the winter/fall, less busy in the spring and summer but that just gives it a different feel. Food is great, if a tad steep - always tastes very fresh. The beer is fan-freaking-tastic. Not so much for the cask-ale and local microbrew craze that's so trendy right now but they have a fantastic selection of great european beers. Staff is knowledgeable & friendly - Adamn, the owner, is especially nice. we love it.

I'm a fairly well known writer about beer. A couple of years ago, Adam, who runs (ran?) this place invited me to come over from London, England, to do a talk as part of a broader beer event in Toronto. He agreed in writing to pay my plane fare and pay me a fee. He didn't advertise the talk properly and hardly anyone came, but those who did had a very good time. Adam then reneged on his promise and didn't pay me. All follow-up communications with Adam and his (former?) business partners have been completely ignored, and left me about $1000 Canadian out of pocket, which I cannot afford. If I were you I would avoid this place and certainly wouldn't have any business dealings with the people who run it.
