Our oldest tavern – the Wheat Sheaf – has been serving up the drink since 1849

A designated historic landmark, TORONTO’s Wheat Sheaf Tavern is still in business – after 165 years.  PHOTO BELOW – the old Wheat Sheaf, 1964, http://www.chuckmantorontoostalgia.wordpress.com

Until 1969, only men were allowed on the premises, but that’s all over now.  Today, the Wheat Sheaf is a sports bar open to one-and-all, with 13 wide-screen televisions, heavy wooden tables, athletes photos on the walls, a cornucopia of draft beer, and rooms upstairs.  It’s one of a diminishing number of old downtown taverns.  You’ll find the Wheat Sheaf at 667 King Street West.
