Fish & chips
Lovely day for a Guinness!

Carrot cake
Stone's Public House
Ashland, Massachusetts

St. Patrick's Day weekend is upon us once again. Stone's Public House in Ashland, Massachusetts is a perfect spot to grab a pint and enjoy some hearty food.

Stone's serves all of the tasty Irish classics. There's Shepard's pie, fish & chips, seafood stew, Guinness Irish beef stew and a full Irish breakfast. They even have a Vegetarian Shepard's Pie. I enjoyed their hearty plate of fish & chips. Stone's also serves lamb chops, ribs, salmon, mac & cheese, chicken and filet mignon. They also offer a bunch of sandwiches like turkey breast & avocado, barbecue pulled pork and toasted ham & cheddar.

There are some very tempting apps like an Irish Pizza with potatoes, scallions, cheddar and bacon. There's also poutine, Irish sausage rolls, fried oysters and brussels sprouts.  If you save room for dessert, I recommend their Limoncello Mascarpone Cake or their carrot cake.

While we were eating, I heard someone at the table next to us ask their server if she's seen any spirits. She said no, but it made me want to know more. Stone's Public House has an interesting and spooky history. It was built in 1832 by a businessman named John Stone. The building fell into disrepair until it was bought in 1976. The buyer started experiencing strange events. A hypnotist visited the inn and talked with the spirits. He determined that six or seven spirits visit the inn. He also talked to some of them and learned that John Stone killed a visitor who cheated during an upstairs card game.

I did not see any spirits. Just lots of good food.
