Through rigorous clinical trials, scientists have discovered that, while abundant in semi-precious seasonings and abnormally briny ghosts, salt mines are not ideal places to enjoy a meal. Relax in a more comfortable culinary setting with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and pours at The Firkin & Fox Pub & Restaurant.
The Firkin & Fox sparks sputtering hunger engines with a menu of traditional British edibles and pub grubables. Explore the beer-battered strata of the traditional fish 'n' chips ($9.99 for one piece, $12.99 for two) or the crisped crust of the chicken pot pie, whose edible atmosphere consists of pulled chicken, vegetables, and gravy ($10.99). Bun-centric diners can opt for the Firkin burger, with jack cheese, bacon, and bourbon-chipotle onions ($10.99), or the chili-cheese dog, a beef frank draped in homemade chili and melted cheese ($9.99). For those that enjoy more fermented accompaniment with their meal or live-action chess game, Firkin & Fox offers 16 different beers on tap, such as Hops of Wrath and Boddingtons, and stows a selection of house and premium wines.
Feast comfortably amid Firkin & Fox’s décor, with electric chandeliers dangling over dark wood tables. The pub also features dozens of flat-screen TVs, a pool table, and two dartboards to settle duels over which periodic element would win in a game of darts.

- The staff has always been friendly and welcoming, whether I was eating outside, upstairs, or at the bar. – Rick B., Yelp
- A real plus for downtown Modesto. Clientele from a variety of ages. Some families dining upstairs, well-behaved but lively people at the bar downstairs. Not trashy, but not stuffy. – Tim G.
