This European-style Irish pub serves gastro fare rooted within authentic Irish tradition. If you’re wondering what the difference is between a GastroPub and an a regular Pub? It’s the food. Our menu features American takes on classic Irish Pub food favorites, creating dishes that are both interesting and comfortable. We prepare our own house-cured meats and utilize produce and meats from local butchers and farms, such as Brasstown Beef and White Oak Pastures. Besides staples like Fish-n-Chips and Bangers and Mash, signature dishes include the Aberdeen sandwich stacked with house-cured corned beef, the Duck Fried Chips and Curry (chips are cut in-house; curry is imported from Ireland) and the Public House Breakfast (with bangers, house-cured pork loin and white and black pudding). Seafood, burgers, smoked meats and sandwiches round out the menu. At the bar, there are 13 European beers on draft and a full range of whiskey cocktails.

Trinidad Faragoza is owner and general manager of The Elder Tree Public House in the East Atlanta Village.  Known for opening and owning restaurants in the Atlanta and Athens area, Trinidad is strongly influenced by northern Spanish cuisine, Southern BBQ, and he specializes in GastroPub cuisine. After running a Locos Grill & Pub for 8 years, he opened a high-end chophouse known as the Georgian Southeastern Chophouse in his childhood home, Athens, where he specialized in wood fire grilling and Southern BBQ.  Trinidad has competed professionally in the Kansas City BBQ Society since 2006, and his experience with wood fire grilling has found a welcome home here at the Elder Tree Public House.

Trinidad’s passion for soccer started in his childhood, and he went on to compete in high school and collegiate programs. He played competitively until age 30 with regional leagues in the southeast. The pub is a proud partner of the Atlanta Silverbacks and is the official bar for viewing away matches. The pub opens early to show all EPL and European matches on the weekends and is a great spot to relax with friends and watch any sporting event.

Named after an old Irish tradition in which an Elder Tree is planted as a sign of protection, The Elder Tree Public House is certainly a welcoming environment with its chatty clientele, sleek wood accents and decadent comfort food. Among Trinidad’s favorite menu items are the Cumberland Pie, the corned beef and cabbage, and the cherry wood-smoked pork cheek.  When not busy tending the floor and the bar, you can find him in remote parts of the world fly fishing.
