$15 for $30 Worth of Classic Comfort Food

Dinners start off with the menu’s Irish nachos—cottage fries heaped with beer-and-sausage chili and cheese ($9.99)—before moving on to entrees such as a barbecue-and-port-wine cheddar-bacon burger ($10.59), fish ’n’ chips ($12.99), or yankee pot roast in a brown gravy ($14.99). The lunch menu tempts with a baked mac ’n’ cheese that melds cheddar, gruyere, and swiss ($8.99).

Corner Pug

It’s considered normal for a restaurant to enter a float or banner in a town parade, but in general, these contributions are all made by humans. Corner Pug breaks this tradition each year during West Hartford’s Park Road Parade, gathering local pugs to march down the street with their owners, each pup dressed to the nines in an attempt to win an award for best costume or most flattering hemline.

This annual spectacle is in keeping with the whimsy that surrounds the pub all year long. Framed photos of pugs brought in by devoted owners line the walls to form a canine shrine, and these pups peer enviously at the endless line-up of thick burgers, organic strip steaks, and English pub classics that parade to tables. In between sips of 20-ounce draft beers, visitors should keep their eyes peeled for sightings of Corner Pug’s mascot—Mac, the pug—whose likeness graces everything from the menu to T-shirts, mugs, and bottles of housemade dressing.

Despite the pub’s jocular ambiance, the kitchen staff takes its job seriously—albeit with a wink and a nod, reportedly employing a macaroni technician to make sure each noodle is standing upright. But Corner Pug’s attention to detail (they even serve the fish ’n’ chips on London newspaper print) has paid off, earning the eatery a perennial spot on the Hartford Advocate’s Best-Of list.
