Effective today we will again be putting daily specials on our main page (to the right).  In the not-too-distant future some additional specials will return (Happy Hour, etc) and our menu will expand.  Stay tuned for details!

Happy 4th of July Weekend!  Unfortunately there won't be many Independence Day celebrations this year, but starting today and through Sunday the Pub will take up the slack a bit and load up this weekend with some great food & drink specials!  Please see the right side of this page for details.

The weather should be fantastic, so our 50+ outdoor seating area will suit most people well.  If you'd rather stay out of the heat, we do of course have limited dining space inside.  Sorry, no bands are scheduled but once we can open at a more regular capacity we'll bring 'em back!

June 26, 2020

As of today we are "officially open for business" (on a limited capacity) inside the Pub!  Keep in mind we have The Loft (our great second level) whch can accommodate additional patrons, along with our Vault seating and mezzanine areas.  More good news - our expanded outdoor seating will remain intact for the foreseeable future, so we should alwasy have plenty of available seating options.  All info & updates will be posted here and on our Facebook page.  We sincerely thank all our patrons for your patience and ongoing support... this is a big step towards getting back to normal! 

June 22, 2020

The Chicago area Bar/Restaurant industry finally got some good news this past weekend... as of this coming Friday June 26th we will be able to open for (limited) dine-in service!  Here's an article from the Chicago Tribune with the official announcement.  Subsequently our hours will return to norrmal and we'll be expanding our menu even more.  More information will be posted here and on our Facebook page in the next few days.

The English Premier League finally returned to action a couple days ago, and today Manchester United plays Tottenham.  To show our support, we'll officially start featuring our MUFC match day specials again: $4 Heineken 20oz drafts!

June 18, 2020

Today the Barrington Farmer's Market makes its 2020 debut in it's usual spot on Park Avenue, on the opposite side (bordering the train tracks) from our expanded outdoor seating.  It's from 3 PM - 7 PM every Thursday through mid-October.  It will not affect our current expanded outdoor seating setup.

June 10, 2020

Our expanded outdoor seating has been quite popular, so thank you to all our patrons who have been coming out and kudos to Mother Nature for giving us mostly fantastic weather!  Next week we will be expanding our menu offerings as we start getting things somewhat "back to normal". 

June 4, 2020

Another article (from June 1st) on our outdoor opening, this one was published in the Chicago Tribune.  The message passed along is that EVERY business is essential!  Please visit FreeIllinois for more information on how you can help your local businesses. 

May 30, 2020

Here's a couple brief articles on our outdoor opening from the Chicago Daily Herald and  As a reminder, we are now open seven days a week from 11 AM - 9 PM.

May 29, 2020

As stated in our prior message, outdoor seating is now open for full service!  However we will continue to be closed for regular service inside the Pub for the foreseeable future.  Our site has been updated to reflect current limitations and we will continue to provide more info as circumstances change.  Thank you for your patience and patronage!

May 28, 2020

Starting Friday May 29th (tomorrow) we will be officially open for full-service OUTDOOR seating. Though on a normal basis we have very limited sidewalk space, the Village of Barrington has agreed to close off Park Avenue for dining use by us and our neighbors Big Iron Horse BBQ.  This should accommodate dozens of patrons for both businesses.  Effective Friday our hours of operation will be 11 AM - 9 PM every day.  There will be a full update with more details here by Friday.  See you soon!

May 25, 2020

The Pub is closed on Memorial Day this year... please have a good and safe one with your families & friends.  And let's never forget the meaning of it, to honor & remember those in our military service who died for our country. True heroes.

May 22, 2020

We have some "progress" to report... if you're following the news, our governor has adjusted the Phase 3 plans so that bars and restaurants will have the option to resume operations for outdoor seating.  This starts next Friday May 29th.  We are currently working with the Village of Barrington and other local establishments on expanded options.  Please check back here and on our Facebook page for updates.

May 20, 2020

IMPORTANT MESSAGE - we need your help!  Our prior hopes were that bars & restaurants could start opening (at some capacity) for dine-in services by June 1st, but the current climate in our state along with our Chicagoland area location is severely jeopardizing our chances of opening anytime soon... or ever again.  On behalf of ourselves and all other small businesses in Illinois, we ask that you visit and sign the petition.  This may help us us and countless others reopen sooner than later.  Thank you for your support.

May 13, 2020

Our famous Corned Beef & Cabbage - always a Pub signature item - has "permanently" returned to our limited take-out menu.   Check out this and all our offerings on the Menu page and in the right column of this page.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions on restaurants it became financially and logistically necessary for us to scale down our offerings.  These are some of our best selling items and generally travel well for take-out orders.  Our menu offerings will return to normal once we can open at a greater capacity for dine-in services.
