Another article (from June 1st) on our outdoor opening, this one was published in the Chicago Tribune.  The message passed along is that EVERY business is essential!  Please feel free to visit FreeIllinois for more information on how you can help your local businesses. 

May 30, 2020

Here's a couple brief articles on our outdoor opening from the Chicago Daily Herald and  As a reminder, we are now open seven days a week from 11 AM - 9 PM.

May 29, 2020

As stated in our prior message, outdoor seating is now open for full service!  However we will continue to be closed for regular service inside the Pub for the foreseeable future.  Our site has been updated to reflect current limitations and we will continue to provide more info as circumstances change.  Thank you for your patience and patronage!

May 28, 2020

Starting Friday May 29th (tomorrow) we will be officially open for full-service OUTDOOR seating. Though on a normal basis we have very limited sidewalk space, the Village of Barrington has agreed to close off Park Avenue for dining use by us and our neighbors Big Iron Horse BBQ.  This should accommodate dozens of patrons for both businesses.  Effective Friday our hours for the foreseeable future will change to 11 AM - 9 PM every day.  There will be a full update with more details here by Friday.  See you soon!

May 25, 2020

The Pub is closed on Memorial Day this year... please have a good and safe one with your families & friends.  And let's never forget the meaning of it, to honor & remember those in our military service who died for our country. True heroes.

May 22, 2020

We have some "progress" to report... if you're following the news, our governor has adjusted the Phase 3 plans so that bars and restaurants will have the option to resume operations for outdoor seating.  This starts next Friday May 29th.  We are currently working with the Village of Barrington and other local establishments on expanded options.  Please check back here and on our Facebook page for updates.

May 20, 2020

IMPORTANT MESSAGE - we need your help!  Our prior hopes were that bars & restaurants could start opening (at some capacity) for dine-in services by June 1st, but the current climate in our state along with our Chicagoland area location is severely jeopardizing our chances of opening anytime soon... or ever again.  On behalf of ourselves and all other small businesses in Illinois, we ask that you visit and sign the petition.  This may help us us and countless others reopen sooner than later.  Thank you for your support.
