Easter 2014

We’re doing a special Easter Brunch Buffet from 11am – 4pm.  $28 per person, $14 for children 6-12 and free for children 5 and under.  Book a reservation online or call the pub 417 864 6994.  We’ll take walk-ins as space allows.  It’s quite a spread with breakfast items including smoked in-house salmon; salads; breads; desserts and a carvery station featuring  leg of lamb with fresh mint sauce and award-winning Swiss Meats ham glazed in house with sides and chutney. Weather permitting (the forecast is looking good) there will be outdoor seating available on our new deck.  Full bar service too!



1 Glass 1 Dime 1 Time

We are proud to participate in the James River Basin Partnership’s 1 Glass 1 Dime 1 Time Program.

For the month of April, we are asking you to donate just ten cents for the first glass of water you drink in the pub.  Money generated from the 1 Glass 1 Dime 1 Time program will help fund the James River Basin Partnership’s projects and programs in the Ozarks and will stay 100% local.   http://www.jamesriverbasin.com/

Don’t take “free” clean water for granted!


Spring Menu

Our new spring menu started this week.  We expanded the size of the menu, added descriptions and  some more regular items.  The specials and the side vegetables will become more and more “spring” as the local produce becomes available.  Check out our menus for food, wine and beers on this website as well as on Facebook.

Spring is here!

This day always reminds us of Stonehenge.  Bill grew up in Wiltshire so it was as commonplace for him to drive by Stonehenge as any other ordinary place.  But Stonehenge is far from ordinary.  Mysterious and ancient, it still holds us in awe of where we came from and wonder for what that time was like.  The rich history of the British Isles is dear to our hearts.  Come in for a bite and a pint and strike up a conversation about your Celtic heritage.

Pancake Day-Shrove Tuesday

While most of us in the US think of New Orleans and Cajun food for Mardi Gras, across the pond the Brits have been having Pancake Races and filling up on pancakes (a crepe to us) on this last day before Lent.  We’re serving one of Bill’s favorite things to eat today – Pancakes with lemon and sugar!  Cheers!

Congrats Blue Buffalo Team!

(see the link)  Cudos also to SHAC Nixa for involving their students in the effort to connect people (especially kids) to their food and promote health/wellness.  We are honored today to give them a tour of the kitchen and feed them lunch in the Gastropub.
