Neighborhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today's Groupon to McLadden's Irish Publick House in West Hartford. Choose between the following options:
• For $7, you get $15 worth of Irish pub fare and drinks during lunch.
• For $12, you get $25 worth of Irish pub fare and drinks during dinner.
Chef Jason Horozy serves Irish-inspired pub fare, which garnered a myriad of awards from the Hartford Advocate’s Best of Hartford Readers' Poll 2011, and bartenders pour hundreds of unique pints. Claim a seat in the cozy pub or a sunny table on the outdoor patio and indulge in one of 12 lunch specials, such as the beer-battered cod with fries ($9.95). Tender bites of lamb befriend softhearted potatoes and captivating carrots, cuddling in a blanket of velvety Guinness lamb stew ($14). Dinner provisions include a corned-beef-and-swiss sandwich ($12) and a chicken potpie ($14), served steaming after being caught in bad traffic. Beerophiles can sip more than 225 bottled beers and draft beers including Kilkenny, Harp, and rotating guest drafts. McLadden's full bar also provides asylum for scotches, whiskeys, and martinis that have gone insane from constantly being shaken.
While quizzing mothers-in-law on the correct spacing of wickets, politely applaud European sports matches on one of many high-definition televisions or the mammoth 10-foot screen, or tap toes during live music Wednesday–Saturday.
McLadden's Irish Publick House
Craft beers and a list of premium whiskeys. Football, both American and international. Plates of shepherd's pie, bangers and mash, and beer-braised corned beef. Though McLadden's asserts its Irish roots in a number of visible ways, the gastropub and whiskey bar also offers a unique craft-beer experience. Ales, stouts, and lagers lace many of the dishes that sail to tables in the pub, which guests can consume in comfortable, laid-back confines.
