“First impression was a good one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

Quick visit the other evening w a friend, we needed a cozy place to talk w a few good pints. Very familiar feel and setting to British Pubs I have visited years ago. Good solid beer and ale list, attentive staff. Will be going back for food soon

“Great Real English Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I lived in England for a while and this place has got the spirit of england down. The selection of beers is amazing, especially for a somewhat remote part of the state, the food is good, and the staff are all English students and very friendly

“Fun place to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

The Old Toad is one of kind in Rochester. Most of the people who work there are from Ireland or England and it is fund to hear that wonderful accent. Service is great too. Many different beers to choose from. Prices are reasonable and food is food. One great plus, you get a free meal on your birthday!

“Cozy British Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

This is a really cozy, welcoming place to get authentic British food and many specialty beers. All the staff is British, so it's fun to hear the delightful accents. Great place for a substantial meal or just drinks or both. They also have several delicious vegetarian options. Prices are very reasonable.

“Comfort and conviviality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Warm and friendly, good brews, and comfort food. Good time on Mondays trivia night as well. Each time I go I am not disappointed, great atmosphere for enjoyment. Surprisingly good choices for vegetarians as well.
