Socializing at an English pub is a far less cumbersome way to celebrate Old World amusements than by begging the local mad scientist to debug his time portal. Engage in present-day pleasures with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of traditional English pub fare at The Jersey Giant, located in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood.
The Jersey Giant enchants afternoons, evenings, and late nights with classic English pub specialties, over 20 tap beers, and an atmosphere that evokes the charming old cusps of the land of Angles. A plate of deep-fried yam frites off of The Jersey Giant's menu engages incisors in a foolhardy duel ($5.59), and the legendary fish 'n' chips, fresh beer-battered halibut decked out with tartar sauce, recalls dormant memories of vestigial gills and deep-sea dominance ($15.99).
Rent-control stomach space for desserts, such as homemade Creme Brule, which is infused with Tahitian vanilla, fresh fruit and whipped cream ($8.49). Plush, velvety, black bar stools and an outdoor patio allow patrons to kick up a stylish peg leg while sharing a pitcher of Kilkenny ($18).
Yahoo! Travelers give The Jersey Giant an average rating of 4.5 stars, and three Google Mappers give it an average rating of 4.15 stars. Eight Yelpers give the restaurant and pub an average of 3.5 stars.
