Fresh Trout Tonight

Bill goes to Highlandville, MO to the Mountain Springs Trout Park ( to pick up freshly cleaned trout fillets on a regular basis to serve in the pub.  It is so good!  Tonight’s (August 2) Pub Bistro Special is trout and glazed pork chop from Circle B Ranch.  We also have Calamari Friti in appetizer size or entrée size and a summertime Sticky Toffee Pudding with House Ice Cream.  Cheers!


Last Weekend in July

This summer is whizzing by.  Typical hot temperatures are here for this Saturday.  Did you know eating spicy food was good for cooling down?  Ask an Indian!  Bill’s excellent Chicken Tikka Masala is great any season of the year but it works especially well in the summer so come enjoy it with a cold pint or a crisp, off-dry glass of Shine riesling (from the Mosel, 1 of our feature whites) for Curry Saturday.

Weekend dinner specials are fresh trout from Mountain Springs Trout Farm in Highlandville and slow-braised beef short rib from Blackgate Farm in Vanzant.  We’ll be serving these with beautiful local green beans and special chef touches.  This weekend’s feature dessert is a very pretty trifle which is an English dessert that goes way back.  Ours will be layers of blueberry coulis, lemon curd and strawberry compote.

At the bar, we have Boulevard’s Ginger-Lemon Radler, a very refreshing session beer at 4.1% ABV and 12 IBU.  It is highly rated!   Also check out Apotheosis from Urban Chestnut in St. Louis.  This one is a French-style saison at 5.3% ABV, 18 IBU.   Let our bartenders guide you in a beer tasting.  Choose 3 or 5 different beers and compare them side by side.  Cheers!

We can add to the celebrations going on in Springfield this weekend for American craft beers with some great deals!  $1.00 off all American craft beers, Friday and Saturday, day and night.
