We opened The Public House in a space which has been a continuous drinking establishment in Ripon since the 1870s. We think that is a fitting connection between our name and the history of our location. We hope to continue the age-old tradition of providing a welcoming place, open to the public, where friends and strangers alike can eat, drink and be merry!
