The Shanachie Pub in Ambler, Pennsylvania is yet another reason to love the Irish....

A lovely, authentically Irish pub in Ambler, The Shanachie was a treat during our weekend in Pennsylvania. We arrived there in appropriately dreary weather and were releaved to be in the welcoming and cozy environment (where the first fire of the season was going). The menu is more flavorful than some Irish pubs we have gone to, the Celtic Cheese board, for instance, is a nice UK version of a traditional french offering. The Shanachie salad was also a beauty and the Chicken Tullamore had a nice smoky flavor of Tullamore whiskey. The servers were also efficient and unflappable.

We missed the Irish band as we left before 9. Irish music is played several nights a week and the theatre is conveniently located across from the art house theatre in Ambler. The Shanachie is one of the few pubs we would go out of our way to visit again.
