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.

THANK YOU… THANK YOU… THANK YOU!
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.
