The Briar Rose in Hyde Park Has Closed

An Irish pub and restaurant has shut its doors for good after being in business for a bit more than a year and a half.

According to a poster within the Chowhound site, The Briar Rose in Hyde Park is now closed, with a check on the place's Facebook page confirming this. (The note says that "The Briar Rose would like to extend a big THANK YOU and FAREWELL to our amazing community of friends and neighbors! Thank you for standing by us for the last 20 months and welcoming us with open arms.") The pub first opened in May of 2014, taking over the space where Annabelle's had been; its menu included a mix of Irish and American fare with such items as clam chowder, calamari, pork chops, shepard's pie, fish and chips, chicken marsala, and meatloaf offered.

The address for this now-closed dining and drinking spot in Hyde Park was: The Briar Rose, 1300 Hyde Park Avenue, Hyde Park, MA, 02136.
