We love good food and, even more so, craft beer, and there is nothing we like better than sharing it with friends and family. The fun, the laughter, the memories. That is the kind of place we want MHP to be – not just a local restaurant, but a second home.
The Meeting House Pub (MHP) was created from the vision of three Newtown families looking for a comfortable, welcoming place where you could go for a great, affordable meal or to have a drink with friends.
When you first walk in the door, you will see MHP is completely different from it’s predecessor, La Fortuna (see our before, during and after photos). The open floor plan, raised ceiling and new windows add light and warmth. The bamboo floors, the red oak booths, benches and bar, and the detailed craftsmanship throughout enhance the buildings’ character. There are leather couches and chairs in the fireplace and shuffleboard rooms and TVs strategically located in key areas for optimal viewing of sporting events.
We spent 18 months planning every detail inside and outside. Sometimes the “girls” (Linnea, Amy and Andrea) needed to keep the “boys” (Gary, Sam and Brian) in check as some of their ideas would go off track .… The boys have a great sense of humor (and obviously the girls do too for marrying them), so expect to hear a lot of laughing around MHP. It will be a fun place to be.
We bring a range of experience to MHP – restaurant front-end and back-end, beverage industry, operations, marketing, and human resources. More importantly, we bring passion … passion for life, family and friends.
We have hired a great team, and we hope you agree. As always, let us know how we are doing.
Make sure to say “Hi” when you are visiting.
