The girls and I went up recently to Marley’s Corner Pub for a wonderful afternoon lunch. I noticed something that made me happy to be there, and happy to live in this small town of ours: every person who walked in the door while we were there was greeted by name, some were immediately informed that “their soup was ready for them” or that their favorite beer was back on tap. That is something special. It has a welcoming setting up in The Heights and a very friendly, small staff. Marley’s is cozy and welcoming inside during cooler days, and inviting and breezy outside when it’s warmer.
Another thing about Marley’s that are special? They have simple, amazing, made from scratch food that is made to order. In no particular order we devoured a simple, bright salad with Italian dressing; crunchy, dense, skin-on, perfectly salted, house-made potato chips; flavorful beef, chicken, and veggie pasties; crisp, classic fish and chips; the delicious soup of the day! Oh, and of course I enjoyed a pint of Twisted Thistle Scottish IPA. We rounded out our very British-Ilse-lunch with a slice of house-made cheesecake, which I only got a couple bites of before the kids polished it off. Next time I go I’m getting two slices! Ooooh, and don’t forget to check out their little happy hour menu… I could go for a pint and some house-made chips right this very moment!
