Irish happy.  Texas friendly.  locally owned.

From initial conception, the idea behind the pub was to create a spot the owners themselves would like to hang out. Founder Sam Darlington, native son of Belfast, Ireland and local Texan resident for the past 30 years, envisioned it as the perfect blend of an Irish Pub experience and Central Texan cuisine, while bringing the iconic Austin outdoor beer garden north to Round Rock. Mission accomplished.

Opening in the fall of 2020, the Cork & Barrel Craft Kitchen + Microbrewery is an authentic and historical Irish pub experience with Texas modernism, innovation and hospitality, featuring our proprietary scratch menu, signature mixology, onsite microbrewery, and one of the best outdoor experiences in Central Texas. This is a place for "Storytelling", for enjoying the sights, sounds, & flavors blended with the serenity of an outdoor grove and "floating" fireplaces. Reserve the private wine cellar table, or hole up in one of the four authentic Irish snugs. Or sit at the Chef's Counter, and watch Executive Chef Josh Watkins prepare your meal in front of you.

The overall vibe blends Austin-chic in the dining room and Chef's Counter with industrial décor indicative of an Irish pub, with many subtle historical nuances throughout. It's the ideal setting to meet up, wine and dine, drink a pint, enjoy live music, or watch a favorite sports team on one of the 12 indoor and outdoor TVs.

In short..we're here to have fun...or what the Irish call "The Craic". Sláinte.
