Stones Public House in Ashland?

New to the area and came across this place online. Just looking for a good pub with decent food, beer and atmosphere.

Any thoughts from fellow hounds?

  1. I had a nice meal with good service in the "fancier" dining room, but the pub atmosphere and menu seemed great and it was very lively on a Sat. nite.

    1. The food is very good with an old pub atmosphere. Dark woods, real fireplace. I've eaten from the DR and bar menus and liked a lot of it. Faorites are calamari, pork shank, fish and chips, corned beef and roast beef sand, , fries are hand cut, portions large. They have a well thought out draft selection, my current fav being Stone's choc porter. Sunday is the liveliest night with the blues jam.

      1. I love Stones Public house. I've been there several times now, gotten the mac and cheese, fish and chips, shephard's pie, irish breakfast and various apps.
        Once I had the mac and cheese and the mushrooms were a bit gritty; other than that, every meal I've had has been delicious. It's a great winter dining experience with the large fireplace.
        They also have a great Sunday brunch. I also give them points for being able to make a great pot of irish breakfast tea.

          IMHO: Used to be way better when Matt Murphy was still cooking there. Now still OK, but not the same. Nice vibe, tho.
