There is a picture as you come in the door commemorating its history.
Originally known as the York Mills Hotel, the Miller Tavern dates back to the 1860’s. Used as a resting spot for horses and carriages on their journey through Hogg’s Hollow, the York Mills Hotel played host to many weary travellers looking to relax over a pint or two. After changing hands throughout the years and renamed The Jolly Miller (after the ‘happy’ owner of the local Mill), this site has been known through the ages for its checkered past – from gambling raids to late night parties – everyone has a fond story about the “Jolly Miller”.

I ordered the Yonge Street Burger (no onions or lettuce) with fries. The fries were really crispy. The burger was okay. I found it overcooked just a bit and there was something spicy in the patty which was a bit of a surprise.
Sandra was my server. She was friendly and took good care of me.
