Bobby Byrne's Pubs are not mere eating drinking and talking establishments; they are havens of comfort and camaraderie, places to bend an elbow, savor a stew, convene with friends. The Pub is a local hero, a neighborhood institution.

We make the ordinary extraordinary by expressing each Pub in terms of art. Our method, and indeed our madness, is using language and artifact to reveal the Pub's soul. To quote Seamus Heaney from his Nobel Lecture in 1995, we want to make use of "the energy released by linguistic fission and fusion," and we want to tap "the power that reminds us we are hunters and gatherers of value."

By celebrating language and artifact, we pray that our "pubsong" sings of the many thoughts and feelings that humans experience. We hope our display of language and artifact evokes a response in you...that has its own plot and theme, its own structure, style, image, logo, rhythm and rhyme.

We are at once surface and symbol. Our logo, which is dominated by the Celtic Knot, is insinuated not only into our decor and menu and onto our walls, but also onto the walls of our imagination. It can speak to us of mystery, of beginning and end, of what is now and of what is to be. Its meaning is amplified by sensibility and articulated by metaphor and symbol. Like poetry, we touch upon the coherent and the unknowable at the same time.

Thus the Pub is about more than food and drink. We want to give you magic and metaphysics with your meat and malt. We hope that we nourish your spirit and enable you to experience not only another great place but also a great good thought.
