A quick Illinois public service announcement - remember to vote today!

June 26, 2022

The Pub will now be serving a limited Sunday Brunch menu every Sunday from 11 AM - 2 PM... it is a scaled down version of what was offered at Fork & Cork (which for summertime hours won't be open on Sundays).  Menu copies will be posted here shortly.

June 23, 2022

Barrington Cruise Nights return for a full season starting today at 6 PM.  They are located just south of the Pub off of Cook & Station streets, sharing space with the new location for the Barrington Farmer's Market. One difference this year is that these events won't feature food & beverage sales from local restaurants; the Village has chosen to handle these tasks.  However, the Pub is located next to the festivities and will of course be offering our full menu selection, daily specials and indoor/outdoor seating for all! Additionally, the Fork & Cork expansion side allows easy access off of Station Street.

June 21, 2022

Our expansion Fork & Cork will be closed until this Thursday as we put together some of the "themed" changes to the menus and set new hours of operation.  We think you're going to like it!  More info forthcoming, so please stay tuned...

Father's Day is this Sunday (June 19) and the Pub will be featuring pizza, beer, Bloody Mary and additional food specials for the dads, including a Sunday Brunch served at both the Pub and the Fork & Cork expansion side.

June 9, 2022

The Barrington Farmer's Market starts their 2022 season today in a new location, in the BMO Harris bank parking lot off of Station & Grove Streets (this is behind the Pub as opposed to right in front).  Good news for everyone, as it gives them more space and makes parking much easier!  The market is every Thursday 3 PM - 7 PM and runs through October 13.

June 2, 2022

In the not-too-distant future we'll have some new menu options in our Fork & Cork expansion side (details forthcoming).  As a reminder this side opens at 5 PM Tuesday-Friday, 12 PM on Saturday and 11 AM on Sunday for an all-day brunch.

May 28, 2022

It's going to be a beautiful weekend and as stated in our prior post the Barrington Art Festival runs Saturday & Sunday.  Additionally, the Pub will be open for regular service and normal business hours on Memorial Day.

May 24, 2022

This coming Saturday & Sunday over Memorial Day weekend is the annual Barrington Art Festival. which takes place on Cook & Station Streets, literally surrounding the Pub.  The festival runs from 10 AM - 5 PM both days.  As we do every year for this event, we will be outside selling beer & wine, plus we'll be serving food from our full menu (along with other festival specials TBA) in expanded outdoor seating.  Customer parking (for both our patrons and festgoers) will be available in the nearby Metra Rail lot and the BMO Harris lot off of Station Street.  Click here for more details on the event.

Here's some very notable but unfortunately crushing news for the Pub and over 177,000 other bars, restaurants and small business owners in this industry that have been desperately waiting for grants - the Restaurant Revitalization Fund has not passed in the Senate.  You can read the articles from Nation's Restaurant News, Yahoo Finance and Eater.

May 20, 2022

This coming Sunday (May 22nd) is the last day of Premier League matches for this season.  All matches start at 10 AM and the Pub will be open early for our soccer-loving patrons.  Note that due to our HDTV and newtowrk broadcasting limits, we'll only be able to show three of the matches.  We'll of course be featuring Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace, with the other two matches being Manchester City vs. Aston Villa and Liverpool vs. Wolverhampton.

May 18, 2022

We definitely prefer all our patrons to enjoy the atmosphere and experience at the Pub while eating & drinking, but sometimes you gotta eat at home.  Though we've never been much of a "to-go" type of place, we can still accommodate!  Effective now our DoorDash menu has been expanded to include several new items; it is still limited in offerings but does provide the option for online ordering and delivery.  Of course our full menu is always available for customer pickup - just take a look at our Menus page, give us a call at 847-277-7400 and place your order.
