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.
