Bring or send out for food. Love the variety of brews and the mix of ages at the Public House. A woman can stop off for a beer or have a picnic table full of ladies and no worries. We fit right in

They have excellent fresh cut Halibut Fish and Chips we get them every time we visit Port Townsend. Paper lined tables so you can draw on them is fun.
