Located at 277 Alexander Street, The Old Toad is nothing short of your traditional British local. From the staff to the food and ales, everything is purely authentic. Even the bar itself was imported from Great Britain. Truly “a pub from over there, over here”.

Since its establishment in 1990, The Old Toad has built a reputation for providing friendly, excellent service. We offer a wide range of beer - from real ales, imports, and local favourites, to our very own custom brews. In addition, we serve traditional British meals as well as contemporary pub grub (including vegetarian meals). This is a relaxed atmosphere, there are no televisions or blaring jukeboxes here. So please, come in and see what all the fuss is about, mate. We promise, you’ll be glad you did.

Rochester Real Beer Week at The Old Toad

Sierra Nevada Tap Takeover 16th June. 5pm.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co have consistently been pushing the boundaries in the craft beer world for 35 years. At the Toad we have been refining our own craft for 25 years. We feel like Sierra Nevada share the same passion for the craft beer industry to us, and want to celebrate reaching our Silver Jubilee by collaborating with someone with a similar philosophy.

We intend on having a full tap takeover with 15 drafts and 4 casks. We will release what beers are going to be pouring nearer the date!

Old Toad Cask Festival. June 19th and 20th.
The cask fest returns for its 4th year!

We have searched far and wide for the best cask ales available to us, and once again, spared no expense and requested the best beers available to be filled in our casks.We specifically look for beers that have never been poured in Rochester in an attempt to improve on the lineup every year, and offer a unique way for brewersand breweries to experiment and exhibit their best brews without committing to a large batch brew. We are working on finalizing the lineup. Once we get closer to the date we will release more information regarding ticket sales.

Beer and Scotch Tasting Parties at The Old Toad

Have you ever thought that you and a group of friends/collegues or a batchelor/batchelorette party would enjoy a beer tasting by a team of enthusiastic, knowledgable folk in a fun atmosphere of an English Pub?

If you have then look no furthur! We are happy to be able to host structured tastings for a variety of different occasions. Our 5 beer tastings start at $15.00 per person and include light nibbles. If you want to get a more in depth event going we can structure a tasting around you and your needs and custom make an event just for you.

We do require reservations for these tastings as we need to prepare space and a range of beers as well as food being ready.

Scotch tastings will need to be pre-arranged as the prices to vary so much, please call if you are interested in having one. Phone - 232 2626

Want to take home beer? A growler or growlette is the answer!
