How one Kenmore pub is trying to adapt to the new reality

NPR taks us inside Cornwall's, which had been serving up pints since 1983 in Kenmore Square and which is now trying to adjust to stay afloat.

That includes learning how to make breakfast. Billy's wife, Lauren Moran, who opened a café in the suburbs a few years ago, has been teaching John and J.R. to make blueberry muffins and breakfast burritos.

H/t Kenny Jervis.

You're in three pictures in that article and not wearing your mask properly in any of them.

If the management can't be arsed to wear a mask correctly in front of a photographer for a puff piece, do they bother to make sure things are clean in between ISD inspections?

I won't be heading there any more, and I do live in the neighborhood.

From the pics the employees are wearing caps.

You were told you weren't welcome in the 90's if you wore one. Thought they were joking because you know a lot of people get the Union Club mixed up with a then basement bar in Kenmore.

Never went back. Boston Beer Works, The Cask, Crossroads, The Last Drop, and Copperfield's didn't care about your hat.

Strangest bar in Boston. If you're not an off the clock bartender from across the street, you're treated like an alien.

I'm no bartender but the staff has always treated me and everyone I've been with great. It's my favorite restaurant in the city.

I’m a fan of Cornwalls but they are weird about letting people in. I’ve been with sober people who were turned away.

I've worn a hat in there- even a dreaded Mets one- which I think was the reason for the hat ban around 1986

You gotta love a "drinking and dining establishment that is, first and foremost, a British-style pub" with Thatcher on the wall that banks on St. Patrick's Day.

I used to go to Cornwalls from time to time. Then I got a job with a British company and went to actual pubs in England. I stopped going to Cornwalls.
