Food is nothing special. Started with chips & gaucamole. Plain chips (grocery store) and the mix was avocado and chopped jalapeno peppers. So a dip alters between too mild and too hot. Not tasty and not even a standard guac. Plowman's lunch with ham and...More

Quite a surprise for us...visiting Pittsboro for shopping, and finding this little place around the back of the city block, behind Roy Underhill's woodwright school (yes..the PBS guy..who was loading wood as we walked by). The City Tap was packed at mid day, mostly with...More

Stopped by for the Ploughman's lunch (comes with a pint of beer--your choice). I've been here several times and have really enjoyed the atmosphere and the live music.

I go there several times a week! The food is good. The bartenders are awesome...especially Billy and Merrick! The drinks are generous and the music is fabulous!

Not much was open on a Sunday so we tried this place. Sandwiches were good, plentiful and fresh. I appreciated the custom sandwich they made for me. Salsa and chips were good too.

Stopped by for a beer after diner. Place seemed pretty cool. Large, covered, outdoor dining/drinking area. Decent selection of beers. Problem was, everyone seem to know each other and they didn't want to welcome in someone new. I only had one beer, so I guess...More

This was my second visit to this local Pittsboro pub and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed again. The best Bloody Mary I've had in a long time and the fun was good too. Seems popular for lunch with the folks of Pittsboro.
