Red Deer’s Elephant & Castle closed, will reopen as Mexican restaurant next month

Blanco Cantino is scheduled to open in October

Red Deer’s Elephant & Castle has closed its doors, but has begun its transformation into a Mexican restaurant.

The Timberlands Drive eatery officially closed on Sept. 5, but Blanco Cantina will open at the same location this October.

“We are excited to introduce this new dining experience, but to do so, we will be closing our doors for renovations after the September long weekend,” a Facebook post on the Elephant & Castle page said.

“We would like to thank everyone who visited since we opened in 2017 as Elephant & Castle. We are grateful to have served your favourite pub fare for the last three years, but we are excited to welcome you back when we open our doors as Blanco Cantina.”
