Our Story

Celebrating 20 Years!

Gas•tro•pub \gas-trō-pub\ n: a combination of pub and gastronomy which is dedicated to high-quality food in a relaxed setting. The focus is on regional cooking with local ingredients, along with specialty beers and wines from around the world.

Gastro Pubs are a well recognized form of eatery in Western Europe. The concept helped truly create a culinary scene and arose from a conscious effort to promote great food in well-loved casual places. Gastro pubs have been described as the Anglo-equivalent of the French brasserie or the Japanese izakaya.

Simply put, they are a pub that far exceeds the basic “pub grub.” They are a shift from formal dining to more informal local pub dining with moderate prices for the type of dishes being served. Moreover, you can order at the bar, and the plates will be brought to your table, and like a pub, should you choose not to eat, you may drink without ordering food.

Simplicity, while much lauded can often sell things short and the Gastro Pub is so much more than just a good food pub. It is a temple of gastronomy that makes market fresh, quality, creative food accessible all. It thumbs up its nose, at restaurants that cater only to those who can pay high prices. What better way to rebel than to serve posh food with gourmet beer at every day prices? It’s magically delicious.

We miss you all so much! Our business was founded We miss you all so much! Our business was founded on, ‘The simple belief that good food and drink bring people together – and the world needs more connection.’ That’s our core. That’s who we are. Self-isolation is tough for us all.

It’s been ten days since we closed all 14 locations (Plan B’s, Butchers & Bakers, Half Door, Tisane & Catering) for dine-in, takeout, and delivery. We made this difficult decision at a time when limited information was available. For the safety of our staff and you, the public, we chose to shut down completely. Given the information we now know, including the 6 feet social distance guidance, transmission risk, and the lifespan of contagions on various surfaces including plastic, paper, and other surfaces, we feel we have a responsibility to remain closed. We still do not have 100% clarity on best practices to safeguard our staff and communities.

Please know that we are daily monitoring and evaluating the safest way to get our incredible burgers, crave-able pizza, tasty martinis, and a pint of Guinness out to you all. In the meantime, we hope that you are enjoying good beer and bourbon at home. Message/call/email/text us if you need tips on how you can improve your at-home food and drink experience. Some of the incredible DJ’s we work with are broadcasting live on Facebook to keep the beats on. Let’s support them. These are unprecedented times, and now more than ever, we all need connection.

By the way, the Kentucky Derby, one of our favorite days of the year, has been moved from May to September. We hope to celebrate it together with you all.

As the weather improves and we receive more guidance on safe and best practices, we’re also entertaining the idea of some touchless, pop-up drive-through dining experiences to rotate through the area. We’ll keep you posted on this.

We can’t wait to see you all in our restaurants again soon to reconnect, eat, drink, laugh, and share stories together.

Please be safe, be kind, social distance, and sip bourbon!

Locals 8 Restaurant Group announced today, that as Locals 8 Restaurant Group announced today, that as of 8 pm tonight, they will be complying with Governor Ned Lamont’s order of shutting down bars, restaurants, gyms, and movie theaters. Visit Locals8.com/news for more info.

At this time, the following locations will stay open for take-out and delivery only (b DC Penn Quarter, b Glastonbury, b Milford, b Southington, b Springfield & b West Hartford). However, this is subject to change. Hours will be 12 pm – 8 pm, with a limited menu of the core dishes and entrees. “We don’t want to let down our guests, our staff, and the communities we are part of. But sometimes in order to ‘come together,’ we need to stay apart. Coronavirus is changing our daily lives right now in drastic ways, but we will all get through this together. It’ll just take time. We need to be safe, stay healthy, and listen to the public health officials and government leaders who will guide us through this,” says Allie J. Gamble, founder, and CEO of Locals 8 Restaurant Group.
