Hilltown does classic pub fare very well, and there’s also a whole lot of variety from which you can choose. Each of the pub’s five burgers (plus plant-based and vegetarian-friendly options) feature an 8-ounce patty on a brioche bun and a choice of cheese—you can even add Irish sharp cheddar for an extra buck. To hit the perfect spot for brunch (or anytime, really), try the Breakfast Burger, featuring bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a sunny-side-up egg, or go for a Barbecue Burger piled high with crispy fried onion straws. The other star at Hilltown is the beer list, so take time to study the craft and specialty bottle options to find your perfect pairing.
Hilltown offers the classic Irish gastropub experience with a sizeable beer list (plus fun cocktails) that could satisfy anyone’s drink proclivities. Draft beers are seasonal and can be mixed and matched for a four-pour beer flight. Along with that, Hilltown has legitimately amazing bar food in the form of disco fries, fried chicken sammies, and five types of wings. Outdoor picnic tables make it an easy group hang spot (especially if you’re bringing your dog), plus weekend brunch elevates its Bloody Mary game with sliders and the works atop your drink.
Hilltown Tavern is a classic Irish gastropub with legitimately amazing bar food (don’t skip the fried chicken sammie) and a sizable beer list—as well as decent cocktails for the non-beer drinkers in your group. If the nine TVs aren’t giving you the scores you want, find solace in the disco fries. Also, don’t forget to stop by for weekend brunch in Roxborough so you can get a slider atop your Bloody Mary.
