This place is an English (British) pub. The folks who run the pub are student's on internships from England. The place is small but that didn't seem to be a problem. The drafts :-) are limited but are great selections that will surprise you. Food is good, sandwiches and fish and chips to name a few items. The British staff speak a little fast, so after a couple of beers, you may not know what they are calling you or care!

We highly recommend the Old Toad. The service was efficient and very friendly. The meals were tasty, healthy and full plates at moderate prices

We have been here several times and have never been sorry. It has a bustling, friendly English pub atmosphere with a healthy mix of college students and older pub enthusiasts. The staff is attentive and helpful. There are many good beers to choose from and everything we've tried on the menu has been very good.

Favorites in my family include the Old Toad Drunken Cheddar soup, Garlic Mushrooms, and the Bangers and Mash. We have tried several specials and have been equally pleased.

The food is reasonably priced, too. Old Toad is a great value and a fun place to go to laugh and enjoy time with friends or family.

The Old Toad has a limited menu, but prepares everything nicely. This is English pub food. The bottled beer selection is amazing, and they rotate different draft beers. A nice place to stop for dinner.

While visiting our daughter in Rochester, NY, we helped us explore new eateries besides the typical chain food restaurants. So, yesterday we visited The Old Toad, 277 Alexander Street. They boast authentic English food, including servers with the accent to accompany. I ordered a shepherd's pie. Hmmm, it was delicious, and she wasn't kidding when she said it was hot! I hate getting food that is warm when it arrives and cold before you ever finish it. Not so here. It was piping hot the entire time. Our server, Megan, was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.
