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!

    A wonderful pub-like atmosphere - the outdoor patio is under umbrellas for constant shade (especially needed these hot summer days). The food is outstanding and a great selection of draft beer. Highly recommended!!

    We go to Stones a lot and it has always been great but last night it was not. The chili tasted like Dinty Moore, my salad wit salmon arrived 15 minutes after everyone else meal an was so salty it was almost inedible. The salad order with salmon came with no salmon and when it came it’s was also too salty. Very disappointing evening.

    This restaurant has a long ago history of being a pub. There may be ghosts and hauntings according to legend. The food is delicious and the wait staff is quite accommodating. Prices are a bit steep but overall, it’s worth a first and repeat visit.

    We’ve been to Stones a lot.. The service was very good.. Food was ok- the menu has been the same forever…the mac and cheese was very good but the hanger steak was bland…Drinks were ok- the soda was flat… The server said they don’t have diet coke and it was some kind of polar cola. Regardless- Serving awful soda from a soda “gun” is a waste- just give the customer a can or bottle. Stones could be so good just inconsistent…

    Stone's Public HouseResponded on July 10, 2023

    Hi, Thank you for your comments. To clarify a few things, we just updated our menu a week ago and we do not use soda guns. We choose to serve Polar products as they are a local business. If you would prefer to just receive your soda in a can rather than poured over ice, please ask your server. Thank you for your patronage.

    A little tweaking and my seafood stew would have been better. Fewer chunks of tomato and more wine in the sauce. I’ve had the cod dinner which unfortunately floats over soggy fries. My husband is happy with the chili. Mixed drinks and wine list are very good.

    Stone's is a favorite of ours and we were delighted to share it with friends who'd never been there. All four meals were good, BUT .. They consistently serve the main course before we've finished starters or salads. Their tables are small so there is not enough room on the table for everything. It ends up disrupting the flow of the meal. Slow down and let me enjoy the food!

    The food and service is always excellent at Stone's. The indoor decor is classic wood paneled pub decor. The outdoor patio is lovely. However, the commuter train goes by right next door and it is loud enough to stop any possibility of conversation when passing. I recommend staying indoors.

    I would recommend. It’s a nice place, with good food. The people who work there are friendly; the service is good. The ambience inside is close to cozy, and the outside dining is kind of protected like an old fashioned kitchen garden. The trains run by now and then, but that’s part of the history.
