Celebrate our FOUR YEAR ANNIVERSARY with us today, we're serving up 20oz pints of three of our most popular beers - Guinness, Harp & Smithwick's - for just $4 each (nicely fits the four year theme). Obviously the big celebration is the upcoming Barrington Celtic Fest, but this is just our little way of saying THANK YOU for all your support!

With all the excitement of the annual Barrington Celtic Fest, what's sometimes overlooked is the anniversary of the Pub. As of Sunday March 9th we will have officially been open FOUR YEARS! The real celebration happens over St. Patrick's Day weekend, but we'll do a few special things to celebrate our business this Sunday. Stay tuned!

If you've ever searched for some late night food options in the Barrington area, chances are you've been disappointed. Well, no more worries, as our kitchen is now open for extended hours every day! We have added on a LATE NITE MENU that is in effect Sunday-Thursday from 9:00 PM - 11:30 PM, and Friday & Saturday it's available 10:00 PM - 1:00 AM. Lots of great options that are perfect for that time of the evening, there's something for everyone! Check out what you can get - along with all our other options - on our Menu page.
With our new late nite menu in effect, our Friday midnight free pizza special is being discontinued. We'd like to thank our friend Scott at Cooper's of Barrington for his assistance (and great pizza) over the past couple years.
