Dear Friends,

Beginning Monday August 30, 2021, we will be closed for renovations (Not COVID!). We anticipate being closed for two weeks, reopening on Monday September 13, 2021. Please check online as we will post updates as we get closer to completing the projects for a firm reopening date. We wish to thank you all for your loyalty and support, and we deeply apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. We look forward to welcoming you back for a pint soon. Cheers!

Stone’s Public House

Stone's Public House, in the time-honored tradition of New England and the old country of Ireland, invites you in for a pint, a conversation and, of course, some of the finest cuisine Metrowest has to offer. Our Public House prides itself on a rich history of fine food and drink, friendly service, camaraderie and, perhaps, a whisper of spirits not to be found anywhere else!

This was our first visit to this local gem. The food was amazing -- garlicky spinach, scalloped potatoes, grilled asparagus, and the apple crisp were standouts. We'll be back often!

No covid protocols were being followed which was quite startling, especially considering their website says otherwise. No server or worker was masked The food was just eh - I could make the exact tomato mozzarella salad at home and I don’t think they even used real heirloom tomatoes. I personally wouldn’t go again which is a shame as it’s very cozy and quaint.

We absolutely are following all COVID requirements and have been throughout the entire pandemic. Fully vaccinated staff and guests are not required to wear masks and we leave it up to individuals to decide what is best for their own health and safety. We are a business and have been negatively effected by this pandemic to a degree that I doubt you could fully comprehend. We respect your right to do what is most comfortable for you, so please don't come to dine indoors if you aren't ready to.

Stone's is one of our regular spots, a few times per year. We always appreciate it.
Now, it's quieter: better for those who like quiet, uncrowded... might not be best for the establishment. The service was excellent... our meals were perfect.

Stone's Public House has been a favorite restaurant of mine for many years and it's only gotten better with the arrival of Hannah Mejaour as a server.

Her promptness, attention to detail, and warm friendliness brings the entire dining experience to the next level.

Come for the great food and drinks, sit by the fireplace if possible, but, be sure to ask for Hannah as your server and you're sure to have a great evening!

I can't wait to go back again!

Made a reservation for our anniversary & requested to be near a fireplace. We arrived to find out we had neither. They offered a nice table then said oops - actually someone else reserved that. They lost our first drink order and brought a carafe of wine but no glass. Really disappointing service and treatment. The food was very good and they had a good drink selection.

Great food, beer, and service as always, but the upstairs room is way too noisy to have a reasonably quiet dinner if it's busy. If you're a party of 8 who likes to drink a lot and yell across the table at each other, then ask to be put upstairs (or better yet, go outside). Otherwise, ask to sit elsewhere...

The dining room where we were seated had beautiful art on the walls and was decorated for fall with pumpkins in a very festive way. We all had cobb salads and the chicken on top was delicious and the lettuce was very fresh. We will be back.

Maybe it was because they were short staffed or just very busy , but the waitress missed some things we asked for; Bread before the meal and coffee after the meal. She offered to bring bread for us to take home but I didn't want that. She brought only a 1/2 cup of coffee to one of us and said she was brewing more, but never brought it. Food was good though

The table next to us was very boisterous, they actually had to be shut off and asked to leave. Service was initially fast, then glacially slow. Food is pretty good.

Sat outside on the patio and it was a lovely night! The steak and mashed was out of this world. Our server was super sweet and hilariously funny! The hostess was super accommodating when we asked to move our table a little closer to the heaters.
Can’t wait to go back!

Enjoyed dinner at Stones Public House last night. Being one of our first cold nights was hoping there would be a fire going in the bar area. Not the case, and it would have helped against the major chill coming in from the open back door! Cannot believe people are still eating outside. Its crazy! We sat near the back door and my husband had to leave his coat on. The menu doesn't change but the quality is always spot on!

A reliably good local place. It was a cool evening, but the heaters kept the outdoor space comfortable. Salmon for me; meat loaf for him. Both enjoyed the meals.

We sat outside and it was just lovely. The noise when a train goes by means you need to pause your conversation, but it was not a problem. Loved the menu with lots of choices!

We sat on the outdoor patio, which I appreciate they allow reservations for, but the trains going by quite frequently is a major noise factor.
The server seemed stretched too thin and left us waiting for things several times.
The Lamb Shepherds Pie was not what I was expecting, even after running my top 3 options by the waitstaff who suggested I try it. Maybe the kitchen had an off night but all in all I won't be back to give any of it a second try.
