I hadn't been to The Publick House in a couple of years, so I decided to go with my wife and a friend from college, and we had a great time. It is important to note that they do not do reservations, it is a...More

I live in the area and love to come here with friends for a drink on the weekends or after work. As someone who enjoys beer, I am never disappointed with the selection of beers on draught! If you can't find something you like they...More

There was outside seating available it we chose to sit inside. The decor was so unique! Looked like the inside of a Tudor-era castle or church. Menu offered a great selection of food, beer and wine. My salmon was perfect—very tasty. We read that the...More

Ordered salad here. Wilted lettuce mixed in with fresh. Overall the experience was less than satisfactory. All the dishes including appetizers were not up to most restaurants.

I’ve given Publick House a try twice for food and a few more times for drinks. Unfortunately, each time has underwhelmed. The menu prices are quite elevated for what is essentially pub food—and not great pub food at that. Their burger is ok, but nothing...More

Four of us went to the Publick House for an early dinner (around 6pm on a Friday). Managed to just beat the rush and got in without a wait. Terrific local beers, and very good food. Fish & chips were very good, but the outstanding...More

The service was great. There is an extensive beer menu with many local brews. The burger is excellent. They use high quality ingredients and not cheap bar food.
