Not far from the Pompideau center musuem, les Halles and several other stops most tourists make in Paris...so we walked a few blocks through a seady red light zone kind of area and then found this corner spot. Large windows looking out onto the Paris street scene. Tries to be something it is not, the beers were quite good however and the service friendly enough. When in Paris...go to an English pub kinda place??...If in the immediate area its almost worth a visit, but be sure to avoid the lower part of Rue St. Denis....

A nice place, rather normal actually. They do the effort to brew their own beers; they are rather okay but nothing more nothing less.

This is certainly not the best place in Paris for real beer lovers but nonetheless not bad at all if you're around and don't know where to get some beers apart from the usual ones you'd find.

Located within walking distance of Pompideau (which is near the apartment I rented). I walked over for a few beers in between loads at a nearby laundromat. Was early evening and not too crowded yet.

Nice building on Rue St Denis, you can check out the prostitutes then step in for a brew! I sat at the bar which was welcoming and chatted with a bartender who spoke perfect English.

Did not eat anything but ordered a couple of beers. Started with the Inseine (APA) which was tasty and had a nice hop flavor. Then I had a pint of the Dark de Triomphe (stout) which was enjoyable as well. Neither were mind blowing but were both good, solid beers.

Worth checking out.

I visited here for lunch the other day. With most places in France seemingly to sell only 1664 or Heineken on draught, I was looking forward to getting a decent beer. I wasn't disappointed. While they may not be award winners, they were well brewed and tasty. The price for a pint (6.50 euro) was also right in line with other Paris establishments. The wait staff was very friendly. The pub itself was modeled after an English pub, and it seemed a pretty good take on it. The food was right out of an English pub also. I had the fish & chips which were good. It was Sunday, and they were also offering an English breakfast for brunch. I would definitely stop back here again.

Visited in 2003.
The Frog and Rosbif is situated within walking distance of the Beaubourg museum and the Forum des Halles of the St Denis street. It serves are own real ale, brewed in the basement from British ales. Despite their funny names (Dark de Triomphe, Froegaarden, Frog Natural blond, Inseine, Parislytic ...), the real ales are well served, a choice of 5 differents beers (little glass with 8 cl.). The pub also serves classic beers (not very interred). It's also possible to give a tour of the brewery visible at the bottom of the stairs (not enought space).

Located on the edge of the red light district, this pub is a mixed bag. True they offer a good selection of their own beers but outside of this they offer only corona. The food was not very good but the atmosphere was stellar, South Africa vs. Australia in a cricket test match. I guess it depends on what you want but with the scaricity of good beer in paris you could do far far worse. When I visited they had the five following beers on tap:

Inseine
Frog Natural Blond
Parislytic
Dark De Triomphe
Froegaarden

I had the Froegaarden and Dark De Triomphe and didn't find either to be anything special but since each Pub brews their own, the quality of drinks may very from Frog pub to Frog pub.

Stumbled on this place while moving from bar to bar up St. Denis, killing time before dinner. Fairly quiet when I came in, it is a nice size place in a questionable area. Sat at the bar and had a couple (a blonde and a dark). They had 4 or 5 Brewed on premises. Paris is sometimes a difficult place to get a good beer, with so much emphasis on the wine. The service was so-so, but it was paris. Beer was tasty. So much so that I stopped by again after dinner for a night cap. Very crowded in the evening (a Thursday night).

All in all, I will try and get back here next time in Paris. Perhaps even to eat, although with all the excellent restaurants in town, that may be asking too much. And there were some very interesting bars on St Denis. it seems to be foreign beer lane, with a belgian beer bar, an australian bar (with aussie bartenders and 2 dozen aussie beers), an irish pub, a mexican bar, etc.
