Why you'll love the Duke of Somerset

The Duke of Somerset is located on Bay Street, surrounded by Yonge Dundas Square, Ryerson University, Ontario Government offices, major tourist shopping and Toronto’s main hospital network. The pub is the perfect neighbourhood stop for a weekday lunch, weekend brunch or cocktails in the evening. The highlight of the Somerset is the portico-style patio, which is heated so the outdoors can be enjoyed for three seasons of the year. The after-work patrons in the neighbourhood make sure the Somerset is always buzzing after 5 p.m.
