What is a “gastropub”?
A gastropub is a British term for a pub which specializes in high-quality food a step above the tradition pub grub. The name is a combination of pub and gastronomy and was coined in 1991 when David Eyre and Mike Belben opened a pub called The Eagle in Clerkenwell, London that placed an emphasis on the quality of food served.

Where did the mural on the wall come from?
The mural was discovered during demolition when Dan Deagan was removing what he believed to be drywall. After noticing that the “drywall” ripped more easily than the rest, he realized that it was actually a painted canvas that had been flipped over and nailed to the wall during a past renovation.
