You Don’t Have To Go To England To Enjoy An English Pub!

One of the great things about the Celilo Inn is that it is located near so many gourmet restaurants, breweries and wineries. Furthermore, not only are these restaurants gourmet, many have flavors from around the world, ensuring that our guests never go hungry and can always find something delicious to eat and drink. For our guests that are craving something from over the pond, we have just the thing! The Horse & Hound British Pub located 40 minutes away in Hood River, is a must for people looking for good bar food and even better beers.

With authentic British pub décor, when the Horse & Hound’s patrons step through the door it’s as if they’ve left the Columbia Gorge and entered the pub scene of a small English town. However, if the décor doesn’t convince you of the Horse & Hound’s authenticity, then the beers, ales and bar food will! They even serve Bass Pale Ale, the original British Pale Ale.

 

If you’re looking for entertainment, then the Horse & Hound is the place for you. With large, flat screen TV’s, sports lovers will feel right at home! The Horse & Hound occasionally has live performances from local bands, so be sure to check their Facebook page for performance updates!
