For over two decades, The Farnsworth House operated on historic Farnsworth Avenue in the heart of historic Bordentown City, NJ. In 2017, the restaurant was sold and underwent extensive renovations, reopening as the Old Town Pub. Local legend Michael Scharibone, best known as the face of Hamilton's most popular bar - Jojo's Tavern, and local business owner Scott O'Brien undertook the daunting task of redesigning and improving all facets of the Farnsworth House while preserving the extensive history of the building.
The bar seating was more than tripled in both the downstairs, and new upstairs bars, while also increasing the seating throughout the restaurant. The menu was redesigned and the draft system was replaced with a 30-tap system downstairs, and a 20-tap system upstairs, allowing a constantly-rotating array of local and national craft beers, as well as adding a new-age tap wine system, pre-made cocktails, and draft root beer.
Michael along with bar manager Drew Seery, bring over four decades of bartending and restaurant management experience. Their elaborate knowledge is realized in the extensive selection of beer, whiskeys/bourbons, and cocktails that Old Town Pub offers.
The Old Town Pub offers both fine and casual dining in the downstairs bar and upstairs dining room. The upstairs is also available for private parties and events, such as bridal showers, baby showers, business luncheons, or seminars. It comfortably seats up to 60 people and offers 55" and 65" televisions with computer hookup for presentations.
