The Leaky Roof Gastro Pub
Much has remained the same at The Leaky Roof Gastro Pub throughout the eatery’s 60-year history. Luckily, the old roof, which once generously admitted the elements, has been replaced, but the sounds of revelry still rattle ranks of bottles on the original bar. Patrons perch there, sipping microbrews and an extensive selection of Irish whiskeys while warmth and light cascade into the room from a three-sided fireplace.
The aroma of Guinness-battered fish 'n' chips drifts from the kitchen, where chefs use local ingredients when possible and focus on sustainability. Their constantly rotating menu has featured inventive appetizers such as garlic truffle fries, which is infused with the restaurant's own truffle oil made with locally sourced black truffles, and country-fried chicken with mirepoix peppered gravy. In addition to buying local produce, the owners support the community by working with local businesses whenever possible, taking part in Portland's composting program, and not jumping motorcycles over town hall even if it would look awesome.
