Squire's Pub Celebrating Annual Heritage Weeks
The 23rd annual Heritage Weeks are being held at the Squire's Pub and Restaurant on U.S. 1 South in Southern Pines.
They will celebrate with authentic dishes from Wales, Scotland, England and Ireland, concluding with St. Patrick's Day this Sunday. Usually closed on Sundays so that employees can attend church and be with their families, the opening on St. Patrick's Day will be an exception, since it is such an exceptional annual celebration at the pub, a news release said.
During these Heritage Days, the daily menu will change often to include as many authentic recipes as possible, including Welsh pot bread, potato leek soup, steak and kidney pie, finnan haddie, Scotch eggs, Cornish pasties, Scottish bridies and more, in addition to the pub's regular menu.
Corned beef and cabbage, which chef Scott claims is the tenderest anywhere, will be offered on Sunday.
The Squire's Pub has become one of the few longtime surviving locally owned restaurants in this area. The family is deeply involved in community service, especially the Kiwanis Club of the Sandhills, the Moore County Shrine Club, Scottish Heritage Society, the Arts Council of Moore County and the St. Andrew's Society.
Scott Dawson is a former director of the Chamber of Commerce. The family is also involved with the Episcopal Day School and The O'Neal School, where one of the owners of the pub, Lisa Gessner, teaches music.
