It was a quiet Friday night and too nice to sit inside (and it often smells like stale beer) so we grabbed one of their sidewalk tables. I did not order a beer but one of their well-priced Moscow Mules - just $5! We order...More

The place has a small parking lot in the back with a short 30 sec walk to the front of the pub. The place is fairly small, with a small bar and little lighting. This is a great intimate place to bring friends and dates...More

Was within walking distance of our hotel, and one of the few places open for dinner on a Monday. Good service, nice beer list, affordable food and enough vegetarian options. British pub food so a little bit different than th usual. Would recommend, all three...More

Unlike our last visit, more than ten years ago, it felt more like an American style pub than an English restaurant. There were no English staff members. The service was the poorest I have experienced in recent memory and I usually look past poor service....More

I've previously favorably reviewed the Old Toad and little has changed. Recently they have reconfigured the sandwich menu to eliminate a sausage sandwich I have really enjoyed in the past. At our recent visit they had a special Chorizo sandwich that was excellent and I...More

British decor on the walls. Good draft beers. All the workers are students from England. Nice cozy place to stop for a drink.

We went on Wednesday for lunch so it was very empty in there, and they had just opened for the day. I left extremely satisfied. It was calming, and the food was amazing. I tried something new, and I am so happy I did. Our...More

What a great place to visit! The food is authentic British cuisine, the list of beers is held together on a clip board, and the employees are from Britain! The food was absolutely perfect, from the Scottish Egg (a must have) to the Bangers and...More

Wide selection of draft beers, traditional English pub fare: tables available near the bar and dart board or in the adjacent dining room. Great fun!

The service was execrable--nobody talked to us for over an hour; then somebody alerted the manager to our plight, and he came over and apologized frequently, abjectly, and profusely, staking us to two rounds of drinks. Apparently multiple workers had taken unscheduled days off, and...More

There is a parking lot in the back of the building with a lot of spaces. You need to turn left before the Old Toad (you are facing towards downtown Rochester) and then make a quick right. That is where the parking lot is... More
