I've been to John Stones many times. Always a good experience. Good food and value. I might wait until the C19 restrictions for restaurants are a little more relaxed or until restaurants have the kinks worked out to write a more detailed review, but all said it was the normal good experience.

Other than the train blowing it’s whistle multiple times, it was great . Outdoor dining , food was great and a good selection of wine and beers. The scallop app was fantastic , fish and chips and salmon entrees were very good

Everything was great from the time we walked in to the time we left. Food was delicious and the staff was courteous. it was nice to see them addressing "lack of mask" issues with customers wandering around with no masks on. REALLY! What don't they get? You guys get an A+ rating.

My husband and I stopped by for a late lunch -sandwiches, fries and beer. We ate out on the patio. The food was delicious with generous portions. It was lovely to be outside and felt safe with everyone wearing masks and the tables distanced from each other.

Our first time dining out at Stone’s Public House outdoors was perfect. We made reservations for outdoor dining and we sat down immediately. The menu had a variety of new menu items. The lobster roll was delicious as well as the creamy cod fish with clams and potatoes. The cabbage and beef egg roll was a perfect appetizer. The patio was quiet but with enough ambience to entice us to come back for more outdoor dining at Stone’s Public House!

So good. We were nervous about eating out amidst a pandemic, however they made us feel comfortable. They sanitized the tables well (and left a sign to let everyone know it’s available for use). Thank you for wearing masks and gloves as well. The food was literally amazing (and I swear it’s not just because I’ve been stuck with my cooking the past few months). 12/10 will be back. We love you!!!!!!!
P.s. the patio is a garden dream. 🥰

Our server Daisy was very nice and attentive. We sat outside on the right side porch protected from the rain. On a few occasions, the commuter rail came by and we’d take a short pause in the conversation. We had a great time.

It was uncannily quiet - the rain might have scared others away.

Great food, as always, but the Guinness was way off tonight... Just not the draw required to keep the stout drinkable. This is usually Stone's secret weapon, but it was very poor.

Overall very nice dining experience. Eating outside was a nice change. For those not familiar with Stone House it gets a bit noisy when the train goes by. The food was delicious!

Best at pub food. French fries (chips) are as good as you’ll find in the area. Clear thought put into keeping everyone safe. Particularly good place to eat if you’re fond of train noise.

Food was delicious. Service was exceptional! Outside seating made us feel safe from the virus. The only drawback is the drink pricing. We only go there for special occasions.

We joined Stone’s for late lunch outside - it was a terrific experience, absolutely fantastic service & yummy food. There is a nice selection of locally brewed craft beers and cider - perfect for a hot summer day! The restaurant team was also very diligently keeping the space clean and were very welcoming as well.

We both had the cobb salad. Nothing about it that made me want to come back for another one. Beer was decent. Train does go through this area and went by twice while we were sitting outside but after being in quarantine, I could care less. Service was a little slow but I didn't mind it since we weren't in a rush.

A legendary restaurant around the Ashland area you need to go to. Excellent food and service. The atmosphere hearkened back to hundreds of years ago adding to the experience. Sadly, I spotted no ghosts. Maybe next time.
