Five Mile Stone is essentially an overachieving Irish pub. It has two floors and some very nice wallpaper, and it feels like an old-timey house where all the furniture and appliances were replaced with a couple of bars and a bunch of tables. It’s a great place for some casual drinking with a group, it has a huge menu of all your standard bar foods, and it gets pretty loud and busy (in a fun way) on the weekends. So if you’ve been spending so much time at The Penrose that you run into someone you’ve dated every time you go there, start using this place as an alternative.
