NPH provides a much needed alternative to King Eider’s. The food is better and the beer selection on tap is much better though I think that Eider’s has a better selection in the bottle. The music and/or TV sometimes get in the way. If I can carry on a conversation I forget about my drinking problem. I’ve eaten at NPH several times and the service was friendly and fairly quick. The food is worth the price but the beer is over the top with some that they carry - Ox Bow in particular. I had a very satisfying Rasputin Stout when some of us used the publik house as a meeting house and was distracted by the beer. Probably the best place in the two villages for a relaxing beer if you discount The Library.

This place is right in my own backyard but I hadn’t checked it out until recently. It was the Oxbow beer that lured me in. The Newcastle Square location offers a nice setting for them but it may be a bit cramped, maybe that’s why I hear they’re moving. Selection of beers is not spectacular - a standard Rogue, a Liberal Cup, Geary’s, Shipyard, etc. but they did have the Oxbow - which was nice. They served it in a shaker however - get some stemware! I liked the food - try the pulled-pork nachos and oyster po’ boy. Service was friendly but food slow in coming out in our case. update 8/12/16: beer list greatly expanded since my first review - it’s not a bad beer list (20 rotating taps), always a few interesting ones, and I’ve always liked the food here
