Made a visit to the Newcastle Publick House for lunch while visiting the area. The building is historic and a landmark in town. Upon entering the pub (from the rear of the building...the parking is a little odd) we waited for several minutes before staff even noticed we were there. We could hear them, but not see them and we weren't really impressed that they didn't have a hostess or at least someone at the bar in the pub who could see customers entering. We decided to eat our lunch on the patio outside which was in front of the building facing the downtown/waterfront area. It was a nice spot but hot. I'd recommend they open the umbrellas on the tables to keep the area shaded during the day, as the sun beats down on the patio area during lunch time. It is somewhat close to the street, so it may not be enjoyable for everyone. The service was slow, as mentioned in several of the reviews, but friendly. We ordered the haddock Reuben sandwich with fries. The sandwich was delicious! It came on toasted bread. The fries were super. This place comes close to being really, really good. If only the service was as good as the food.
