Five Things to Know About Black Sheep Pub
People don’t generally head to the pub at first light. But Black Sheep, as its name suggests, isn’t your typical pub. Breakfast starts early (at 7 a.m.) and Sunday brunch runs late (until 3 p.m.), and nightly dinner service, often accompanied by live music or trivia, keeps people in their seats well into the evening. Read more about what stands out at Black Sheep:
- Yes, they actually serve black sheep. Well, blackened lamb. The menu includes two preparations of it: chargrilled lamb tips steeped in a house marinade, and a lamb burger capped with wilted spinach, red onion, feta, and balsamic.
- And yes, it actually feels like a pub. And not just because of comfort foods like shepherd’s pie and roast turkey that make you want to curl up with a copy of A Tale of Two Cities. It’s the vintage touches that complete the vibe, including exposed-brick archways and iron lampposts.
- They’re open to suggestions. With certain dishes,like the omelets and the mac ‘n’ cheese, you can design your own from a range of fixin’s.
- The small things are a big deal. The kitchen staff makes whatever they can from scratch, including salad dressings, bread-crumb mixtures, and meatballs. Speaking of meat: they hand cut their rib eye and bread their fried chicken by hand.
- They’re good neighbors. Owners Mike and Lill partner with local businesses whenever they can. They produced their own dark-roast blend with Framingham’s Hagan Brothers Coffee, source unique spirits from Corkscrew Liquors, and host painting parties with The Paint Bar.
