The Friar & Firkin has been in the Queen St neighbourhood for over 20 years now.
I have only been here to eat, never for a long night of drinking. They have your typical pub food and it is pretty good. The prices are fairly typical and the service is good. The place is nice looking and clean, it is a little dark though. However, they check IDs at the door often, which is unexpected for a pub.
"Pleasant pub grub" bolstered by local and international brews on tap draws crowds to this midpriced King West chain link with siblings throughout the city; it's a "good value" and the "atmosphere makes you feel right at home", so hopsheads deem it an overall "reliable" choice.
Into the Friar
Situated on the very busy corner of Queen and John, the Friar and Firkin is a favourite among regulars looking for an after-work pint, and for people who want a good meal before heading to the nearby movie theatre or club district.

Only wish their patio was bigger in the summer since I normally go... more
We stopped in here for "after-show" cocktails, but we should have gone elsewhere. Worst martinis we ever had - I mean they were really nasty. Seating in the small 2-top tables is really cramped, so sit at the bar or one of the 4-top booths. Unfortunately, we will never be going back here.
The Firken Pubs’ contribution to the Entertainment District, the Friar & Firken has that British pub ambiance common to the franchise. The Friar has recently been renovated, with a new menu and feel, so if you haven’t been there for a while, it’s time to rediscover it.
Just off of frantic Queen West, this (literally) underground old-style pub serves up a relaxed bar atmosphere along with time-tested pub cuisine and a wide array of drinks.
