Local Gastropub; The Flying Hound Alehouse

Updated on May 3, 2014

Pub and Grub

The Flying Hound Alehouse offers a menu of variety that offers items to please those looking for traditional pub grub, vegetarians, and those looking for gluten free selections. Located at 6317 McKee Road in Fitchburg, The Flying Hound is conveniently located and easy to find. There is ample parking with a private lot as well.

You can expect a friendly welcome by staff who appear to enjoy their job and seem happy to be there. During a recent visit, a Monday shortly after 6:00 p.m., we were greeted and seated within several minutes of entering. The establishment was fairly full, but not to the point of having a waiting list.

The seating was both high top tables and standard tables. There is also an outdoor seating area available, but it was too chilly still to go and check it out. All in all, our experience was pleasant and I'm sure we will return to try other menu items and sample the many brews available.


Schnitzel Sandwich

Mussels

My friend and I ordered 2 appetizers to share and an entree each. Overall, we were satisfied with our meal experience. The one low point however, would have to be the cheese curds we ordered as our first appetizer. Initially the order came out (rather quickly) with a majority of the curds being small (approximately the size of a marble). We questioned our waitress and after several moments of discussion, she agreed to have them make us a new order. The replacement order did contain more normal sized curds, however there were still a lot of small ones. Our second appetizer, The French Onion soup, was delicious! I highly recommend trying this.

We ordered the Mussels and the Schnitzel Sandwich as our main entrees. The portion size for both entrees was generous and they were visually appealing when served. One could literally cut the Schnitzel (a breaded pork loin) in half, place both pieces on the sandwich, and still have enough to fill the bun. This was served with a red cabbage slaw, which was a bit bland, but not bad. As for the mussels, they were served in a very tasty sauce, however there was an unfortunate 'dirty' taste to them. A thick slice of bread and large portion of fries was served with the entree as well. The fries were tasty and the bread was good for soaking up the sauce.
