We love good food and, even more so, craft beer, and there is nothing we like better than sharing it with friends and family. The fun, the laughter, the memories. That is the kind of place we want MHP to be – not just a local restaurant, but a second home.
The Meeting House Pub (MHP) was created from the vision of three Newtown families looking for a comfortable, welcoming place where you could go for a great, affordable meal or to have a drink with friends.

O’Brien’s Pub & Restaurant located in Danbury, Connecticut is the perfect place to enjoy some fresh from scratch food and tasty cocktails at the end of a long day. Originally from Ireland, John O’Brien knew that that the local community would enjoy some traditional Irish hospitality and he was right. Locals and travelers old and young have come to love O’Brien’s.
After a fire shut down the pub in 2015 the community couldn’t wait for news of them reopening. Finally, in time for St. Patrick’s Day 2016, they hosted their Grand Opening, unveiling a gorgeous and more traditional Irish facade and a great new space for dining, enjoying some “craic” at the bar, or hosting your private event.
Once again the family at O’Brien’s welcomes you with open arms – treating your family like their own! Slainte!
