Medium big place with ok brewpub beer selection. The service was helpful but usually French slow. Quite watery and expensive beers, but criticism goes to not having beers smaller than pint and filling your stomach with not so good beer isn’t really especially interesting thing to do in Paris.

More sophisticated French take on a British Pub. Beer feels more like an add-on to the food. Nice but nothing spectacular.

It’s not a real pub, rather a student bar with no atmosphere. Mostly watery beers. It’s quite noisy and expensive. I would not recommend it to anyone, except rich young undemanding students who wants to watch a soccer or rugby match... You’ve got many best place to drink beers in paris than The Frog & Princess !

Il Frog & Princess Pub si mostra da subito come locale più modaiolo: la sua clientela deve essere in media abbastanza giovane, buietto con luci colorate, arredamento minimalista ma sgargiante, lungo bancone cui accamparsi e pochi tavolini. Sarà che era vuoto, ma non mi ha urtato più di tanto: ci sediamo e prendiamo uno snack fritto (sono l’unica cosa abbordabile dopo aver già pranzato) e chiedo al cameriere, un ragazzo inglese (!), se è possibile assaggiare tutte le birre. Of course: anzi l’assaggio è gratis. Ci porta 6 bicchierini da 10cl, uno con ogni specialità della casa; l’assaggio gratuito è simpatico, ma è pensato apposta per far sentire in obbligo di pagare almeno una pinta dopo. Non esistono formati intermedi: full pint inglese 7€. Vabeh, assaggiamo. F.N.B. (Frog Natural Blonde): una lager del tutto anonima, ma almeno pulita, sicuramente meglio di quella di O’Neil; Maison Blanche: qui un po’ di fenolico; Ginger Twist: ale allo zenzero, che come spesso finisce per sapere di detersivo (tipo la Ginger Tom per dire); Inseine: una buona golden ale con styrian goldings (così almeno annoto), la mia preferita, se pure senza pretese (ma è l’unica a pompa); Dark de Triomphe: stout graziosa ma un po’ troppo dolciona/cioccolatesca; Parislytic: bitter inglese altrettanto onesta (sugli stili inglesi lavorano decisamente meglio). Finisce che io mi prendo una pinta di Inseine e Nicoletta di Parislytic.
Per i genovesi: se O’Neil è l’Exultate, Frog & Princess è il Bicu; birre tutte pulite (a parte la blanche), perlopiù senz’anima, ma qualche cosina decente si trova.

The beers brewed for all Frog pubs are quite uninteresting and very expensive...if you want to hang out with students it’s a good place, if you want good beer go elsewhere...

2010-08. Visited on a rainy Saturday afternoon last July, we stopped in to try their flight though were told directly a sampler would not be available to us had it been busier. (We later realized the samplers were free of charge, but left a tip instead.) Sadly the beer was poor quality and served to us in cracked shot glasses, and the food menu looked similarly tired and flat. It’s like visiting a night club during the day, complete with funky dance music -- not an enjoyable experience. (2/9/5/NA/9/9) 50%

In a side street between Boulevard Saint-Germain and the Saint-Sulpice church and not far from the Jardin du Luxembourg, this is supposed to be a British-style pub (like the rest of the chain). Everything was about the rugby championship when we went there (except for the Lille-Lyon match on the big tv (thankfully)). More pubby for me than a real nightclub, expecially because of the fact that they were having a pub quiz when we arrived (which they kinda screwed up with one question, nevermind). The waitresses were helpful, friendly and fast, not bitchy at all when a friend spilled most of his beer over the floor (and over me and my backpack heh). The 6 beers was so-so, some ok-good and the Blanche was bad, but ONLY available in pints and definitely NOT worth 7 Euros (the 5 Euros price during happy hour is more like it but still no). I had the "Queues de gambas craquantes" ("crispy chilli prawns") too, they were ok, but kinda as overpriced as the beer at 7 Euros as well. I had the same problem with the toilet (being 6’4ish). To sum everything up, good atmosphere if you like sports and are with friends and very good service (at least from the girls?) but average beer at most, and to add insult to injury, brutal prices.

2010-08. This is very much a bar.nightclub and not really a pub so much. It was pretty empty when we stopped by in the afternoon. Female bartender was friendly, poured us a pair of samplers. Male bartender came by and asked if I had made a choice. Got the stink eye from the bartender when I said I was good, can I have some water please. This made more sense when I asked how much we owed and he said the samplers were free... I left a nice tip and we left. The beer ranged from awful to mediocre. If you go here you are going to tick off ratings, that is all. ONeil around the corner is significantly better in almost every respect.

Visited around 6:30 pm and the place was almost empty, ordered a Parislytic at the bar, it was just ok but nothing special. I asked the really nice barmaid if could have a sample of the other beers and she gave me a shot glass with each of the 6 other brews. I then realized that they were all quite bad. Inseine was terrible, the white was just bad. The prices a so high too. The only nice thing about the place was the barmaid, but I will not return.

Went here for an English breakfast one saturday afternoon - dark inside, unlike its compatriot the Rosbif which has nice bright windows. More of a proper pub setting and it wouldn’t bug you in the evening. Staff were rather slow, they needed another helping hand for when everyone started piling in for the game. Frog’s beers are hit and miss as can bee seen on their individual ratings. Not a bad place to hang with friends and watch some sports, would choose a different venue of theirs in the future though.
