Best Neighborhood Pub In Boston

We have visited The Druid often with family, friends and acquaintances. .The Druid is family friendly, and a respite for solos. The food is extraordinary, the staff welcoming and efficient, and the owner is generous to a fault. Try a fish sandwich, and a pint. Stay for good craic and the music.

Stayed in Boston for two days so decided to check out Cambridge. While we were there we were hungry and decided to get some grub and have a beer. I google mapped 'Irish pub' and found 'The Druid'. Loved the name, saw it was close to where we were so my girlfriend and I made the 1.1 mile hike (we... More

Craft beers and authentic Irish dishes are enhanced by Irish servers. Chips with curry sauce and shepherd's pie were amazing!

Loved the authentic Irish fare and ale. Recommend the Jacks Abby IPA and shepherds pie and you MUST get an order of Fish & Chips- their signature. Went with 2 teenagers who enjoyed the atmospher and food. Live Irish music completed the experience.

The Druid is the place to go for weekend morning premier league games, a cold pint, and one of the best fish sandwiches in Boston. It's affordable, the bartender / owner is awesome, and it's filled with locals. Love this place!

This is not the place to go for romantic dinner but a great place for meeting friends for dinner and drinks. Relatively small menu but everyone tried something different and everyone raved about the food. Try to get a table away from the door as it is drafty. Service is a tad slow. Our server didn't 't return to ask... More

It was pouring rain on Patriots Day. We wanted a cool place to hang out and get a couple beers and something to warm us up. Stopped in here at a local ' s recommendation. Had some beer and the beef stew. The stew hit the spot. Was delicious and hearty. Perfect for a rainy day. The bartender, Michael, was... More

Was in town for business for a couple of days and went here early evening on March 7th. This place is near Inman Square and delivers the Irish pub experience as good as any I've experienced in the U.S. When we walked in, we were slammed with the crowd. The place is small and jam packed, but we were lucky... More

Keep coming back to the Druid. Super pub - happy atmosphere . Fish and chips and shepherd's pie both outstanding. Hot tea with Jack Daniels on this freezing day didn't hurt either. Great bartender Danny Mcgann showed us a great time. Highly recommended
