Have you ever noticed that the cheery atmosphere of an English pub somehow makes the drinks seem colder, the food taste better, and the evening go by faster? There’s something about being in a place that’s only expectations of you are that you have a good time. Brother Jon’s Public House, located at 1227 NW Galveston Avenue, has no rivals when it comes to ensuring good times are had by all who cross the doorway. Open every day of the week, this moderately priced pub is a local favorite which is soon to become your favorite as well!

What is a Public House?

Americans have their bars and the British have their public houses, establishments that serve up cold drinks and hot food to all that are thirsty and hungry. In the UK, a visit to the public house is a family event, with even the youngest members enjoying their non-alcoholic drinks. Brother Jon’s Public House continues the British tradition with this casual eatery, offering a family like atmosphere to be enjoyed by all. In good weather, the good times can be had on an outdoor patio, but even on the coldest, snowiest, or wettest of days, the interior offers adventures in friendship that will be remembered long after you have returned home. Brother Jon’s received its name in tribute to Mount Bachelor, which was originally named Brother Jonathan by missionaries who visited Bend in the 1800s.
