I gave three stars just because it's not my type of place. It felt geared toward the 20 something crowd. The music from the live band was so loud, that conversation was virtually impossible. The menu didn't offer very much, it's a basic beer and burger place. It seems popular with the younger crowd. It's definitely a casual place. Not... More

First of all, we arrived at about 5 PM and they were able to accommodate a party of ten, on a Friday night, at one table. Kudos for that! The food was very good. We expected pub food but received a much higher quality of food than that. Our table ordered everything from burgers to grilled salmon. Among the ten... More

Only have craft beer. Food was okay but nothing to brag about. Had pasta with mushrooms. Would not order again. Girlfriend had chicken sandwich on pretzel roll. She said it was good. Service was good.

Love this place. It is mainly covered outdoor seating with a rustic atmosphere. We were there on a weeknight. It is located in Old Town Temecula. There are cute shops nearby. Parking can be tight. Food and bar menu are awesome. Friendly service. Our server Chis was great. Highly recommend

This place has awesome ambiance, excellent service and great food! We found this place on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. We had many great meals in Old Town but liked this place the best! It was a really cool night but they had plenty of heaters and fire pits to make it comfortable!

One of the best outdoor patios in Old Town Temecula, Public House offers a cozy atmosphere, water feature, fire pits and heaters. They have live music on the weekends. But the best part is the food. Don't miss the goat cheese and truffle fries. Then, for meat eaters, you want to go with the Reuben or the Kobe burger! Both... More

Well we went there last night for dinner. The menu tends to be seasonable which is the best for freshness and quality.There is a very small dining area inside. The tables could not be any closer. The patio at the front is ok; the heaters there help. The garden at the back is a large area that tends to be... More

Public House is a local favorite. Lunch or dinner on the back patio is fun for families, friends or dates. The menu changes with what is in season locally. There is a large selection of beers and wines ( and the wine servings are generous). The food is always excellent. Whether you are a local or a visitor, I recommend... More

In the heart of Old Town Temecula with a short walking distance to many shops. The atmosphere is relaxing but upbeat and the food was good.

Description
PUBlic House roosts in the heart of Old Town Temecula among rustic, nostalgic buildings. Since 2009, we have served the finest fare in a truly unique restored home from the 1950s. PUBlic House is discreet at first glance. As you walk up to our hosts you only just hear the life music and busy, joyful activity tucked out back awaiting you. This aspect of PUBlic House always makes dining an intimate rendezvous. Whether you are having a sweet heart-to-heart in the patio garden or catching up with friends on the balcony, PUBlic House romances with charm.

Our customers describe PUBlic House as "Chill" and "Funky Cool". It's true, Fridays through Sundays you will rock the rhythm of live music 'til the wee hours. Staff say Sundays are especially relaxing due to the clientele vibe and live acoustic music. Throughout the year, PUBlic House's patio garden remains relaxing with the hum of friends and family dining on fine food and drink that uncommonly delight them. You enjoy dining in many different seasons. So, in steamy summers the balcony and patio garden sparkle with mist. In winters we get it toasty with outdoor heaters and warm, rich menu items. Welcome to the family!
