Quirky drinks and an interesting place to visit. We went during the daytime for a pint, but it was very busy that evening.

A special menu tonight of vegan tapas and chocolate fondue dessert was an amazing, delicious surprise, just a blcok from where we were staying. Fast service, nice & lively people, great beer and spirits selection, and seating outside near a small public square with "jeu...More

Love this place. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere. The food is good but it's probably best to make a reservation as it gets busy! Well worth a visit.

I can honestly say I have NEVER received service like this in my life. You walk in and are made to feel like such an inconvenience from the sour-faced waiting staff DRAWING their eyes off you for daring to interrupt their conversation. AVOID AVOID AVOID

I was looking for a restaurant with an English theme. I found this pub on Trip Advisor and read the feedback. I wasn't disappointed. The service was excellent, with an English speaking waiter, the food was great and there was a really good atmosphere.

Service is great, waitresses are very kind; they even suggested that they could customize the burger since Sunday brunch is a bit more limited than normal menu. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. In terms of price, it's ok...

There were a vegetarian options on the menu, which is difficult to get in France. Meals were good and a great atmosphere.

I went to the dispensary twice in one day during a brief trip to Toulouse. I visited first with an English colleague and were so warmly welcomed (including free 'special' shots), that we returned with French colleagues later. We didn't eat, but the food looked...More

Inspired by the best of British, The Dispensary is a somewhere between a local hideaway, a curiousity cabinet and a good old British pub. The restaurant offers both French and British cuisine, pub grub, brunch, breakfast, British and Continental food and much more. We cater for kids and vegetarians too. The essential factor is that everything is fresh and homemade. The restaurant is open every night apart drom Monday at 7.30Pm and also saturday (12 - 3pm) and sunday for brunch from 12 until 3.30Pm. Reservations are advised.
