All of us at the Pub wanted to thank our loyal patrons and plenty of new customers for being overwhelmingly behind our decision to stay open. As stated in our prior announcement, it's the survival of the business and all involved with it that's at stake.  Though we completely understand that our actions may not be the right direction for everyone, our goal is to give people a choice. We'll continue to follow the same safety protocol we've been doing for months... so feel free to join us during business hours, call us for carry-out, or ignore us altogether. It's YOUR choice, and that's what's important!

Despite the state mandates targeting the closure of bars and restaurants in our region effective this Wednesday (10/28), the Pub - along with our connected neighbors at Big Iron Horse BBQ - have made the personal and business decision to remain fully open.  It was proven during the first shutdown that we were not designed to be "to-go" type of establishments, so simply stated our businesses will not be viable if expected to go through that once again.  There isn't any other choice if we have any hopes for us to survive and our employees to be able to pay bills and provide for their families.

Understand that this decision is not meant to downplay the severity of the virus.  We know how devastating it has been for those who have lost loved ones and for society as a whole.  While open we will continue to do our best by taking all proper safety measures in our establishments to keep our customers and staff safe.  Our goal is to give YOU the options without questionable mandates dictating what you can and cannot do.  Regardless of if you choose to frequent us or stay home, we completely respect your decision... just know that you're always welcome and we plan on being here for you.

UPDATE 10/29/20 - hosting a large gathering at this time simply isn't the right thing to do, so we have canceled our halloween party plans.

Our last day of expanded outdoor seating will be Sunday November 1st.  We sincerely thank the Village of Barrington for helping us out the past several months, and hopefully we'll have nicer weather for everyone to enjoy up until that day.  We will also plan on opening The Loft again at that time... our amazing second level is very roomy, has it's own large full bar, bathrooms, jukebox and nine HDTVs... perfect for larger (and safe) gatherings and dining!

UPDATE, 11:30 AM - we still have full water service and are currently fully open for business.  If the situation changes we will let you know here and on our Facebook page.  If you hear nothing else it's safe to assume all is A-OK.

ATTENTION:  There is a water main break in our area and the village is currently working on repairs.  All water service for several buildings (including us) will be shut down for a few hours this morning. As a restaurant we cannot function without water, so our lunch services will be delayed.  This is out of our control but we have been told that it could be a quick repair.  Hopefully we'll be fully up & running by 1 PM or earlier.  Please check back here and on our Facebook page for updates.

"One of the worst days in America's history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans' history. We'll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice."

The hospitality industry has been hit tremendously hard during this pandemic, with most establishments making major operational adjustments just to survive and too many places closing their doors for good… and it’s not over yet.  However, we understand that the difficult times affect everyone, so the Pub has committed to keep the menu pricing the same as it was before COVID-19.  We are hoping to weather the storm but could not do it without YOU, our loyal customers.  On behalf of the entire Pub staff we sincerely appreciate your patronage and will strive to always do our best.

October 29th UPDATE:

Our THANK YOU has just been posted on the left side of this page.  Here's a couple brief housekeeping notes:

Though we are currently fully stocked for full operations, the uncertainty of business levels in the immediate days ahead required a severe cutback in our normal weekly purchases. That means there is a chance we may run out of some menu & drink items, but rest assured we'll still be "good" for the weekend and of course will restock accordingly next week.

Our Halloween Party (with a live DJ) that was planned for this Saturday (10/31) has been canceled. Even though everyone attending would be wearing masks (either costume or the others), hosting a large gathering at this time jsimply isn't the right thing to do. We will still be open for regular business, so feel free to dress up, come out and enjoy good food, drink & camaraderie!

Additional details and updates will be posted
