Firkin Group


Once proud chain of brewpubs, founded 1979 by David Bruce. Expanded and ruined by Allied Domeq. No longer brewing its own ale, but selling rubbish such as Tetley's 'By public demand' (if you believe that, you'll believe anything!)

Beers are attributed to their particular pubs where known, the ones listed on this page are those I don't know the correct source for.

Curiously, there are still some brewing Firkin pubs on the European mainland, though if they're all as bad as the Fiddler & Firkin in Den Haag they're worth avoiding.
