Duke Of York

I was wandering about last week before the big snow storm hit on Friday and was pleasantly surprised to see how bright and clean the exterior of the Duke of York Pub was at a time of year when most things are dull and grey here. Located in the Yorkville/Annex neighbourhood close to the U of Toronto, the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), and the Royal Conservatory of Music, you will find a very eclectic clientele here at most times of the day. I'm not sure if Deb (from York) would find it authentic but it is a great place for a cool pint!

Authentic or not, it looks inviting to me! :)

I hope they have Yorkshire pudding and roast meat on the menu. ;-)

I like this very much. The colors are outstanding and it has such an elegant appearance. I would imagine the ambiance inside would match the excellent exterior!

If it serves cool beer that would make it just fine in my book RedPat!

This is a very appealing place. I venture to say that I would find my way into it if I were in the neighborhood.

Only thing that matters is if the food is good. Love the bright awnings. Wow.

ah, the yellow is a cheery accent color.
Hope you are well, RedPat!

I do think it's the mix of colours that make it so fresh and appealing Pat, blue and yellow together are a dynamite combination.

I've seen it, but I've never been inside. Quite an appealing looking building!
