Hands down this is the best Shepard's Pie I have ever had--including the pie I ordered in a London Pub. The gravy is delicious the lamb shanks are perfectly tender and perfectly seasoned. The carrots are sweet and perfectly cooked and the slight touch of rosemary is fragrant and tasty. This is the dish to have at Stones. I have... More

We sat without being greeted by our waiter for so long I had to inform the hostess that we were still waiting. This, I think, was a consequence of the restaurant being slow. The kind of slow that causes the employees to assume they have nothing to do when in fact there are new customers. On to the food. The... More

My first visit - at the suggestion of a friend who had been - and was not disappointed. There were 6 of us for brunch on Sunday 7/27. We sat inside because it was raining. Plenty of room. The service and food were great and the atmosphere was very cool. I was asking about the history of the place since... More

After our first visit, which we titled "Disappointed" I was contacted by Jim, one of the managers at the restaurant, offering his apologies and emphasizing that our first visit was not typical. After some back-and-forth messages Jim convinced us to give the restaurant another try. We waited a few weeks and my wife made the reservation so we remained anonymous... More

Stone's is a great spot. I actually had my rehearsal dinner here in a private room and it was really excellent. We were very happy with the food and service. I've also been here for lunch, dinner, and drinks and have yet to be disappointed. The salmon BLT is excellent - they do not skimp on the salmon! The best... More

We have gone to Stone's for many years. The menus and people have changed, but the experience is always excellent. The other night my wife and I decided to go out for something casual and inexpensive, and Stone's fit the bill perfectly with great food and ambiance. We sat on the patio, which is so much fun on a nice... More

We love this pub, back tonight for mussels appetizer, well seasoned red sauce with just the right kick, fish and chips, a departure from the usual thick pieces of cod, and lamb chops. Recommend it, sit out on a nice night! Service was great too.

Based on the many good reviews we've read both on TripAdvisor and elsewhere, we decided to try Stone's for brunch. First the good - the atmosphere. We sat out on the patio. It was a good sized fenced in area. It wass really nice. The one downside was when the commuter rail came by (but that's not their fault). The... More

We stopped by Stone's Public House for lunch, to get an idea of the place and food before making a dinner reservation for a reunion with 4 old friends. At this lunch time, the place was quiet, with a Sirius music station playing. The outside tables were available, but it was a bit too damp and cool at the time.... More
