A Pub Above
Located on the north end of West King Street, Ransom Pub brings new meaning to the well-known term "public house." Their building, originally home to the Watauga Democrat and soon after Murphy's Irish Pub, is now home to three thriving local businesses: the fresh and local food --- Ransom Pub; the fair trade, organic coffee --- Bald Guy Brew, the global impact --- Wine to Water. As a social enterprise, Ransom gives a portion of annual sales to Wine to Water, supplying support to the organization's round-the-world clean water projects.
Ransom is a meeting place with a deep heart for their community that operates with one mission: "to love and serve our town by consistently providing exceptional food, uncompromising hospitality, and meaningful community experiences." The new restaurant not only serves some of Boone's tastiest pub fare with options for any dietary need but is also home to King Street's largest event space, hosting weddings, parties, corporate events and anything in between.
