I am usually not a fan of airport restaurants but they are sometimes a necessary evil. The Firkin & Fox was a nice surprise. The bunless burger came with Caesar salad instead of fries and was quite delicious. Lemlem provided excellent service and made it feel like we were in a pub, not an airport.

I've had better burgers at McDonalds. Left a funky taste in my mouth. Caesar salad was way over dressed. Lettuce was maybe romaine in a former life. DO NOT eat fries in this place if you are GF. They fry them with chicken tenders, etc. Only nice thing I have to say is my server actually knew this information and... More

Where do they get the lettuce for their "Caesar salad"? The dumpster behind Souplantation? This is really bad. The burger was some kind of mystery meat. The avocado was dark brown on the side that was turned down. Even the draught beer tasted stale. But, you know, it's airport food, so what can you expect? Just be thankful you lived... More

I was mostly impressed with the prompt service as the food, a crab cake, was so-so--the slaw was OK. I sat at the bar and also enjoyed several beers which made my layover more pleasant. Prices seemed better than average for airport fare.

This is NOT pub food. It's pub atmosphere but the food is reheated and served cold. The hot cocoa was the only thing hot. Ugh!

I ordered a bowl of the clam chowder soup at this place and the appearance seemed OK, but upon tasting the "soup" it was white water without any flavor. If there was a clam in there, I would have been shocked. There were some numbs they called potatoes, but the whole dish was without any flavor - i.e. white colored... More

I had one of the most miserable airport dining experiences at this restaurant in the Dulles airport on Friday, 4/4/14. Listed under "Fine Fare" on the Specials section of the menu, I ordered the Firkin Fish Wrap described as "Crispy Beer-Battered Fish in a wrap stuffed with Lettuce, Avocado and Chipotle Mayo. Served with a Caesar Salad!" for $11.99 The... More

Food was a big disappointment , French fries tasted like cardboard , wings where barely cooked and table service was just terrible . Our host Jeaneth C was rude and unprofessional . Don't believe ? Give it a try !

Surprisingly, this place was very good for being in an airport where quality and service are typically poor. The place was packed but the service was very brisk and friendly and the portions were huge and tasty. Lots of typical English food choices. We were impressed with the overall operation.

Service was as good as you could ever expect in an airport bar/restaurant. Food was perfectly fine and promptly delivered. Only downfall? Worst Bloody Mary I've ever had! Overall a comfortable place to pass the time between flights, though.
