Room Spotlight – Raven’s Roost Pub

It’s no secret that my favorite place at Ravenwood is behind the bar in the Raven’s Roost Pub. I’ve spent a lot of time behind that bar over the last few years, chatting with guests on a variety of topics.

One of the central gathering places for castle guests, the Raven’s Roost Pub boasts half a dozen tables perfect for enjoying some together time, whether over a light meal, a board game, or one of our fine adult beverages. The Pub itself is bookended by a wall length stone fireplace on one side, and a gorgeous ten foot natural cherry bar on the other, complete with traditional foot rail and stools and some absolutely beautiful stone work.

The center piece of the back bar is a traditional beer barrel, provided by Hoppin’ Frog Brewery out of Akron. The barrel is home to a trio of beer taps, one of which is perpetually dedicated to the hands down favorite drink in the Pub, B. Nektar’s Zombie Killer cyser.

Raven's Roost Pub

Though Zombie Killer (a honey, cherry and apple mead) is undoubtedly one of our most popular beverages, it is far from the only drink available. The Raven’s Roost offers fine wines, some mixed drinks, and one of the best selections of craft beers around! Along with your beverage be sure to sample some of our pub fare, featuring our famous Beer & Cheddar Soup and the ever popular Excaliburger!

The Raven’s Roost Pub is open daily for on-site guests, and is open to the public most Friday and Saturday evenings between 5:00 and 10:00 PM. Be sure to call before stopping out, as the Pub is closed during private events.

The next time you visit Ravenwood Castle, be sure to stop into the Raven’s Roost Pub for a beverage, a game and a bit of conversation. Better yet, check out one of our amazing beer tasting weekends! The next is December 2nd and 3rd and features Great Lakes Brewery and North Coast Brewery!

We’ll save you a seat by the bar!
