Stone’s Public House

March 4th, 2008 · 9 Comments

Last week we went to try Stone’s Public House (formerly John Stone’s Inn).  This one of those places I grew up knowing about but never went to, so Ethan and I went for lunch to see what it was like.
Inside was pretty much what I expected, cozy and comfortable.
Since we were there at an odd our we had our pick of seats, so we sat by the fireplace and started off with a couple of beers.

Ethan got a cheeseburger and I got fish and chips.
Everything was really good.  The fries were fantastic and our server was very nice.  I guess the prices are a little on the high end but not outrageous and the ambiance is a nice change from most places in the area.  Stone’s is also known for ghost sightings.  They usually get a little piece done on them around Halloween time.  You can check out their website to learn the history of the building.
I wish we had something like this in Framingham but it’s nice that it’s just a few minutes away.

    when the hubby and i first brought my parents there, my dad said “this was worth moving to ashland for.” the food is consistantly yummy, although the menu’s a bit small. also, an impressive beer selection.

    Great new website Michelle! Congrats!

    Did you see the Ghost Hunters episode where they investigated John Stone’s Inn?

    The team found an old newspaper that was dated 100+ years old to the day. They also showed the dress of the little girl that was tragically killed by a train many years ago and is said to still haunt the property.

    Very spooky!

    Thanks! I did see that episode. I wondered if they only let camera crews film on that date : ) Still, it’s nice to see something local get covered by a national channel.

    If you’re a blues musician, or even just a fan, Stone’s is the place to be on Sunday nights, 8-12.

    Pete Henderson runs one of the best open blues jams in Eastern MA. People from 16 to 60 come from far and wide to jam here. It’s a friendly, welcoming, group and there are as many regulars in the audience as there are on the stage.

    If you find yourself on the crowded dance floor shouting out the chorus to “Got My Mojo Workin”” during that signature Muddy Waters tune, you’ll know you’ve found a new home on Sunday evenings. 🙂

    I started coming here when Liam’s Irish Tavern closed in Trolley Sq. Framingham. I’ve been a fan of Irish Pub music since I was a little boy. I especially love the bar area. All that gorgeous, dark, old wood, and the fireplace – so welcoming. And no doubt about it, the staff here is genuinely friendly every time I’ve been here and the food is always excellent. This is one of my “must visit” places every time I visit family in MA.
