This is a small family operated pub/restaurant. The service is fast and the food is wonderful. The father/son operation was a great experience....try the Rueben!

Nice place to go and meet lots of fun friendly people is sitting at the bar at Parsons Pub. Their food is good. I would recommend if you are passing through Murphy North Carolina great place to stop being for a beer and shepherd's pie.

Their "fried" food isn't fried but it's fabulous! Burgers are really great! We also like the beer selections plus they have my favorite wine = Riesling!

Thank you SO much for that fine review! We love it when folks come to the Carolina mountains and discover unexpected treasures...like the Parson's Pub. Not too many Irish Pubs in Appalachia and it is fun to see the surprise smile creep across people's faces...More
