The Elephant is a time warp Youngs boozer, set in a modern building with a heritage location and name which dates back to 1666. Split over two floors, a street level bar and basement bar, both are small and have a distinct 1970's feel (nothing wrong with that), I visited on a Wednesday and things were quiet at just after midday, becoming busier at one o'clock. Most were local city workers of various types, this is not a pretentious pub and everyone was friendly.
Overall, the latest update to the decor has not altered this traditional pub, beer is excellently kept, food is reasonably priced and the service is good - another fine Youngs establishment.
