We regularly come here for fries and beer and dinner on occasion esp when we want to take our friends from out of town for great food and show them the best of what Temecula has to offer. I love this place! The food is top notch with a seasonal menu that keeps the menu from being stale. They always... More

This is one of the trendy places in downtown area of Temecula. We sat at a table in the outside seating area near the front. It was great weather, the musics was softly playing in the background, and the customers were seemingly enjoying their visit. There was six of us laughing and enjoying our time there. But it was Sarina... More

My husband and I were visiting my sister in Valencia, CA from Florida. We also were meeting up with two friends we had met on a cruise almost four years ago and they live in Apple Valley. Add one more CA friend and there we were spending a gorgeous sunny day visiting some wineries. At the end of our awesome... More

The food was excellent. With live music this place is hopping on the weekends. Be sure to get there early if you want a table.

Service by James was excellent -- just the right amount of attentiveness and knowledge. This was our second visit, and the ambience was great. A very hot day, but sitting on the semi-covered patio was delightful with the water misters on the periphery. Normally, I would give Public House a higher rating, but the food was just not quite up... More

The setting is pleasant. The food is good. There is something in the menu for anyone. The food is better than common bar food. A good place to hang out with friends. Great service.

Pro's: - Good pub grub - Very good service Con's: - Tries to punch above it's weight class. The menu tries to be creative and clever with traditional pub fare and the prices reflect this effort but the food really is nothing to phone home about. The Kobe burger looks good (my associate had it and seemed satisfied) and is... More

Went here today for lunch. Had the Kobe burger. It was cooked perfectly as ordered. The black garlic aolie sauce was delicious. They make their own potato chips. They were good and salty but a bit too greasy. My wife had the raspberry apple salad with chicken. The chicken was very moist. She was disappointed because the raspberry apple was... More

We came here as a result of Tripadvisor recommendations and were so glad we did. The outdoor dining area is beautful - spray mist and a moveable roof to provide shade but also light was fantastic. Great ambience, music and seating with lovely staff. The menu was great - as ever unlimited refills on drinks are always welcome. Children's menu... More

PUBlic House roosts in the heart of Old Town Temecula among rustic, nostalgic buildings. Since 2009, we have served the finest fare in a truly unique restored home from the 1950s. PUBlic House is discreet at first glance. As you walk up to our hosts you only just hear the life music and busy, joyful activity tucked out back awaiting you. This aspect of PUBlic House always makes dining an intimate rendezvous. Whether you are having a sweet heart-to-heart in the patio garden or catching up with friends on the balcony, PUBlic House romances with charm.

Our customers describe PUBlic House as "Chill" and "Funky Cool". It's true, Fridays through Sundays you will rock the rhythm of live music 'til the wee hours. Staff say Sundays are especially relaxing due to the clientele vibe and live acoustic music. Throughout the year, PUBlic House's patio garden remains relaxing with the hum of friends and family dining on fine food and drink that uncommonly delight them. You enjoy dining in many different seasons. So, in steamy summers the balcony and patio garden sparkle with mist. In winters we get it toasty with outdoor heaters and warm, rich menu items. Welcome to the family!
