Hot Dining: Purebred British at The Oxley

Yorkville can be one of the more intimidating neighbourhoods in Toronto, what with its lavish hotels and super-chic boutiques. The Oxley is a welcoming oasis in the midst of all this luxury. Inside a fire engine–red Victorian house you’ll find a quintessentially English pub complete with feature fireplace, lots of leather and murals depicting “ye olde fox hunt.” The pub shares a pedigree with its slightly sportier sister space the Queen and Beaver; count on it to deliver refined yet familiar comforts in the form of lamb sirloin with olive ketchup ($28), dry-aged rib-eye with stilton cheese ($38), and bar favourites like a roast beef sandwich ($17) and fish and chips ($17).
