Filling a vacancy downtown Penetanguishene that was missing and now very much appreciated, Flynn’s Public House (formerly Flynn’s Irish Pub) provides the small town a place for Guinness on tap, delicious fare and a cozy atmosphere!
Before Flynn’s arrived, the town lacked a pub with atmosphere you’d traditionally find in the UK and Ireland—somewhere open late nights and holidays, is a meeting place for friends and family, and livens up the downtown on typically quiet evenings. Opening in 2013, Flynn’s Public House started out as Flynn’s Irish Pub; originally purchased by Tom and Catherine, it stayed in the family by seeing ownership pass over to Gary and Cournety Cordfield! The family, being from England and Ireland, understood the importance of a local pub serving good food and giving the community’s a place to gather and have fun.
The space that is now Flynn’s Public House has a long history and has seen many different businesses in its building. When it was purchased by the current family who now owns it, it was a Union Burger. It has also been a TD Bank (there is still a vault in the restaurant – very cool) and a Movie Rental Store (who else remembers those?) so it has quite the history on the street.
Flynn’s Public House does weekly specials like Wingy Wednesdays, Fish n Chips Fridays and more! They also feature specials quite often with delicious creations from the chef!
Flynn’s Public House is located at 96 Main St in downtown Penetanguishene and is open Wednesday & Thursday 12pm to 10pm, Friday & Saturday 12pm to 11p and Sundays 12pm to 10pm.
