Pub set to host grand opening

By Staff | Mar 4, 2011

The Yorkshire Old English Pub and Restaurant will have its official grand opening this weekend March 4 and 5.

The grand opening celebration will feature live music after 10 p.m. and drink specials at the bar and will take place during regular hours Friday and Saturday.

The Yorkshire, features what owner Sandra Lechliter described as “true traditional English cuisine.”

The menu includes English Favorites, prepared by Lechliter’s husband and professionally trained chef, Chad, like traditional Shepherds pie, homemade bangers and mash, battered prawns and house battered fish and hand-cut chips.

The menu also includes many entrees that Lechliter described as a mix of English and American favorites, including jumbo lump crab cakes and seared scallops.

The menu also features some traditional English desserts like Yorkshire pudding and scones and boasts a sandwich and salad selection as well as a full kid’s menu.

Lechliter described the prices as reasonable and explained the Yorkshire welcomes all.

“We cater to everyone,” she said.

The Yorkshire is both a restaurant and full bar, which features a selection of English beers and ales on tap, as well as some specialty drinks, like the “London Blitz,” the bar’s signature mixed drink with grenadine and Sprite.

According to Lechliter, the restaurant and bar will feature a live DJ every weekend, with plans to host a mix of jazz, blues and reggae acts in the coming weeks.

The Yorkshire is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Lunch and dinner will be served from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday and will feature a “Sunday roast.”
