About The Dog and DuckAustin's finest British Pub, established 1990
We have quite a history here
Dog and Duck might have opened as a British Pub, but it has evolved into something more. We have 33 beer taps of various Texas, American, and International Brews and a kitchen which has recently been voted Austin’s Best Pub Grub.
There is ample seating both inside and outside for small parties or large groups. Our wonderful jukebox has an eclectic variety of music with Sinatra, Motown, Heavy Metal, British Rock, and even the theme song from MASH. There are TV’s inside and outside, and the bartender would be happy to put on anything you want to watch. We get a lot of people who come in for the World Series and the World Cup. You can also play some games; we have pinball, pool, darts, and a various selection of board games.
And like all good public houses, we have free wi-fi for your computer or cell phone.
The Legendary Austin Pub
Dog and Duck opened up in May of 1990 at its original location. It was well-known for its tin ceilings, slanted wood floor, and fireplace. The Building had been around for a long time and was a restaurant called Mrs. Robinson’s in the 1970’s. In 1991, Dog and Duck sistered with one of The Dog and Duck pubs in London. The new location is now open and is located on the East side of Austin on Webberville Road.
Susan Forrester, who opened the pub, is still an owner along with Jeff McKillop. Both of them can often be found at the pub at their corner table.
We’ve been the winners of multiple awards since opening our doors in 1990.
