Though camels can stay hydrated for months with the water stored in their humps, their beer reservoirs can only be accessed by a gentle keg tap. Wet your own whistle with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at The Dog & Duck Public House & Restaurant.
The Dog & Duck wraps patrons within the cozy confines of an old, white house brimming with authentic English ambience. A functional family of pub fare features rebellious baked brie studded with roasted almonds and served with flatbread and a choice of savoury sauce ($12). The certified Angus sirloin in the steak-and-roasted-pepper wrap holds back a creamy flood of thousand-island dressing ($14). Chefs uncover land and sea harmony with the fish-and-chips pizza ($13), and a local Scottish butcher crafts authentic haggis platters ($13). Diners ease down eats with a plethora of potables, such as domestic craft drafts, imported English brews, and specialty beer-cider blends. A tree-sheltered garden patio invites diners to inhale the free-spirited, uninhibited oxygen of the outdoors, and live music from Calgary's local musicians appeases ears Thursday–Saturday.
The Dog & Duck Public House & Restaurant
With its cozy setting in a small white house, The Dog & Duck Public House & Restaurant seeks to embody the spirit of an authentic English pub. The aromas of classic comfort food fill the casual pub to the rafters. Hearty steak sandwiches and burgers are served alongside fish and chips made with halibut or cod and steaming irish stew filled with chunks of New Zealand lamb that's ladled into bread bowls. Though they specialize in pouring picturesque pints of Guinness, bartenders also serve more than 14 draft beers, including some local craft brews.
