Profile Last Updated: July 17, 2008
Step into a pub centred in a big room with friendly people, lots of beer and food and sports on TV – even rugby. The Frog and Firkin is almost a restaurant masquerading as a pub, with diners offered the choice between dining formally in the dining room and enjoying three full courses, or snacking with your fingers off platters in front of the TV. Favourites include nachos, bruschetta (garlic bread to you, mate), onion soup, shrimps for dipping, buffalo style chicken wedges, even a plate of fresh vegetables with house dip. Green munchers can go on to veggie burgers, curry, pastas or stir fry.
Be Fair and Share
For a serious time-out watching a game or two on the big screens, there's a huge beef rib & wing platter piled high with dips and fries, or, the popular house platter with chicken shrimp, and calamari. If your date threatens to leave before the overtime is done, distract her with apple crumble, blueberry cheesecake, pecan pie or a chocolate eruption.
Why We Go Here
The Frog carries a range of local and imported beers, bottled and on tap, and complements them with signature martinis like Coyote Sunrise, Summer Swirl, and Alabama Slammer. When you've done eating, drinking and armchair officiating, there's a games room with darts and pool for less “strenuous” exercise. Those who prefer pretty views can grab a seat on the patio and watch the passing multitudes.
They're Breeding ‘Em
Something to do with Firkin, siblings of The Frog are common, with 40 genetic variations in Canada going by various nom's de beer like the Bull & Firkin, the Drake and the Filly, Flatiron, Goose, Hare, Monk, Owl, and Pheasant. Must be a good family. Only the Frog crossed the Rockies, but he's surely breeding. Look out for more of them.
