Peanut Gallery Tavern: A Friendly Norristown Pub
July 19, 2016 | klein
There’s something comforting about a neighborhood pub – it can serve as a gathering place for times both happy and sad, and endure through generations. A great example is Norristown’s Peanut Gallery Tavern. This family-owned watering hole has been open since 1974, originally named the Cork and Crown. In 1992, its name was changed to the Peanut Gallery to reflect the owner’s lifetime love of peanuts. The second generation took over in 2005 and has been continuing the pub’s mission of good drinks, good food and friendly service. This place has a serious contingent of locals, but they happily welcome new faces. The jukebox is kept loud and the pool tables in the back are usually packed. The food is pretty standard pub grub, but their Buffalo wings are nice and spicy. The beer selection is decent, with some local microbrews on offer, and the bartenders mix inexpensive, strong cocktails. There’s nothing fancy about the Peanut Gallery, but they take care of business quite well.
