Fish and chips were pretty good and I have a pint of something semi rare. Tap lineup was a little weak and the interior of this place is kind of a shithole.

This is a great place to drink beer. It is laid-back with a (mostly) knowledgeable and professional staff, though I do have to admit, some of the staff act like this was there fall back job because the coffee shop thing just wasnít working for them! The beer selection is good, with plenty of local Texas brews to be had. Real Ale, Thirsty Planet, Live Oak. Too much from Circle Brewing though (weak beer). Good food, crappy dartboards, but they are still fun to use while you sit and listen to the phenomenal jukebox. Very pleasant beer garden, though there are too many smokers outside. Dog friendly as well.

Average to below average selection of available on-tap brews. The atmosphere inside was great - reminiscent of what a seedy bar should be. I also like the fact that it was non-smoking inside, although I spent my time outside. The food was decent fare for a pub, and what we tried was pretty tasty. I would definitely go back again if Ginger Man wasnít around in this area. Nice place to hang out with friends and just enjoy some usual beers on tap. If they would replace all the St. Arnoldís beers with something good they would have got a better rating. I donít know why people like to keep this crap on tap. Oh well, you canít have it all.

Decent, but seemingly short line of taps. I was hoping for more of a selection, but for an English pub it was expectedly and predominantly English. Totally cool. What they had on tap and in bottle was great, a lovely selection. Had a pitcher of Fullers ESB with a plate of fish & chips... not a bad place to hang out and get some grub. Small enough with a good ambiance that Iíd prefer it over Opal Divines when looking for food & brew. Love the patio, and the people. Good people know good pubs.

I stopped in for lunch during a recent visit to Austin, and came back later that evening for some beers. Other than Ginger Man, this seems like the place to be in town for a good beer selection with a great selection on tap and in bottles. When I stopped for lunch things were a bit slow, and the bartender and I chatted a good bit about business. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The pubís selection is wide, but being from out of town I wouldíve preferred to see more beers I couldnít get back home. I had lunch, but I couldnít find much I was interested in on the menu. I had a Philly Cheese-steak sandwich, and I wasnít too impressed with it. Maybe I chose poorly. One block to the east was a Mexican place I wish I had gone to instead. Still, as a beer place, I think it would be a mistake to skip this place when in Austin.

Very relaxed, cosy atmosphere with the usual bar games and the decor of a British pub. They have about 40 taps, plus another dozen bottles that include a saison and some Belgians. I didnít have any food, so I canít comment on that. I wouldnít expect much from the bartenders, but there is a pretty nice selection. Iíd call it a good find on my first day in the city.

The bartender was an idiot...a total idiot, so we went to the patio where the waitress was friendly and knowledgable so the mediocre score is reflective of obth as an average...great selection and they are on e of the only good beer places that has weekday daytime hours...

With 40ish taps of mostly British imports, the Dog & Duck is one of the more authentic English pubs in Austin. Whereas Fado and BD Rileyís go for more of a designer Britpub feel, the Dog & Duck with itís copper ceilings and plenitude of dart boards is more akin to what I would expect to find in the average English neighborhood. The menu favors Brit fare such as bangers and mash and the like and also strives sucessfully for authenticity. This bar is often packed with a college aged crowd as itís a mere 5-6 blocks from the University of Texas campus. They throw a pretty lively St Patrickís Day celebration every year thatís more of a block party than anything. If it gets too crowded inside there are always a number of wooden picnic tables out on the patio.

Near the State Capital and Texas Chili Parlor so we stopped when we were in that part of town. Has a lot of outdoor seatings, both under a cover and without. Inside itís a typical pub feel with a small bar. Decent tap list but it didnít look like they had anything that Gingerman did not. If I were local I would probably go here often in the hot summer... and itís dog friendly.
