Rose & Raindrop Public House and Restaurant

 For a perfect place to enjoy a pint in a cozy British-style setting stop by the Rose & Raindrop. The mahogany bar with its dozen taps is the first attraction. Underneath the high ceilings the elegant decor includes lots of cherry wood. Candles on the small and large round wooden tables set the mood as the Rock & Roll sound system sets the tempo. Beer oriented prints cover the walls along with some blaring neon signs. A few silent TVs dot the landscape and Christmas lights remain illuminated year-round. The main lounge is cigar-friendly while the "Green room" to the rear is available for private parties.

 Where the bar features 24 Single Malt Scotches and restaurant has highlights as well. Specialties include the Oatmeal Stout Braised Lamb Shank ($11.95) and the Guinness Marinated Lamb Chop ($14.95). Hours are 11 am to midnight daily except Friday and Saturday when closing time is 1 am. At $3.75 for a 20-ounce pint of your favorite imports from Great Britain, the Rose & Raindrop is truly a rare find.
