As of March 1, 2022 McGonigal's Pub officially expanded into our neighboring building space! To distinguish it from the spot you already know and love, we are calling it Fork & Cork. This is actually not a separate business, it's a complementary addition to the Pub; we envision this area as “An Upscale Pub Experience” for those seeking a slight departure from our loud, rowdy Irish Pub environment. Featuring an eclectic food menu, specialty cocktails, a variety of bourbons and craft beers, plenty of bar and table seating, several TVs and a jukebox, it’s the perfect getaway for groups, date night or whatever you seek. Plus, it's physically connected to the Pub's main level, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds without leaving the building!
Effective April 3rd we now feature an ALL-DAY Sunday Brunch, with other daily food specials already happening.
Fork & Cork is also available to be rented out for private events. Please visit our Banquents-Events page for more details.
A brief history on the evolution of Fork & Cork
Back in the summer of 2009 the McGonigal family purchased two adjoining buildings in downtown Barrington – 105 S. Cook Street which became McGonigal’s Pub, and 205 Park Avenue developed into Park Avenue Wine Bar & Merchant. Both establishments opened March 9, 2010. Since that time the Pub itself hasn’t changed, but our next door building – for various reasons - has went through several changes of ownership & venues:
2010 – 2012: Park Avenue Wine Bar
2012 – 2016: The Annex (Pub owned)
2017 – 2018: Remember Charlotte’s
2019 – 2021: Big Iron Horse Barbecue
2022: Fork & Cork (Pub owned)
In late 2021 our friend who owned Big Iron Horse BBQ retired from the business and McGonigal’s Pub inherited the 205 Park Avenue space once again. Initially the working name for this additional space was “McGonigal’s Charhouse” but after quite a bit of industry research, hiring a new chef and working with feedback from our patrons, “Fork & Cork” was established. We feel this concept expands the Pub offerings to a new level and is a perfect fit for the Barrington region. We encourage you to give it a try!
