Iron Horse Tavern, Norcross, GA

Iron Horse Tavern Restaurant Review

: At more than 130 years old, the building that houses the Iron Horse Tavern in downtown Norcross features classic nineteenth-century design elements: exposed brick and old wood brought up-to-date by the addition of flat-screen TVs. A large patio serves as the focal point in good weather; in cold weather, it’s the fireplace. Patrons --- including a good many from the British Isles --- gather for games of Trivial Pursuit, to throw darts, and to enjoy such pub stalwarts as a lamb-centered shepherd's pie in summer and lamb-based Irish stew in winter. Bangers and mash with onion gravy always are a good bet, and the burger's a fine treat, too. Traditional plates include a Ploughman's lunch with Scotch eggs and Cornish pasties. There are a dozen brews on draught and in the bottle at least another 20. Desserts get short shrift, but with other solid offerings, it doesn’t matter. The place is non-smoking until after 10 p.m. Owner Huw Thomas has a sound sense of proper pub fare.
