Our traditional establishment embodies the noblest of British Isles Institutions: the local pub. Historically, the public house is an abode of welcome to all who come is search of solace, sustenance, and a drop of good cheer. Free from the gaze of the television’s all-numbing eye, conversation is king. Merriment, music, and a little of Merlins magic ease the cares of the day towards the pleasures of the evening. Whether your needs are a good meal, a glass of fine wine, a tipple of malt whiskey, or merely a pint or two and a chat with the locals, Merlins Rest Pub is your “home away from home” — just bring your heart.
OUR FOOD AND DRINK
Merlins Rest Pub features a wide selection of import taps and authentic spirits. The pub has the largest selection of single malt scotches and Irish whiskeys in Minnesota (many of which are showcased during our monthly scotch tastings, October – June). We have hand-crafted each of the recipes for our diverse menu, and our kitchen team is constantly creating new dishes and desserts. We feature top-quality pub plates, including classics such as Fish & Chips, Cottage Pie, Cornish Pastry, and Bangers & Mash. And of course, English Toffee Pudding with Birds Custard.
Merlins Rest Pub has some of the best musicians in the Twin Cities come through our doors. We feature open jams, live Irish music, jazz, blues, folk, almost every night of the week. Follow our calendar of events for the latest.
We have a weekly pub quiz every Wednesday at 7:30 as well as several pub sings throughout the month. Not to mention the many other activities and events. Be sure to check out our calendar of events frequently as new events are added often.
See you at the pub. Cheers!
