"A gastropub" is a place where people can order tasty, reasonably priced food and good beer and liquor to go with it. The atmosphere is always comforting and unpretentious. The name gastropub suggests community. The gastropub movement started in the early 90’s in London, England. The idea of taking an existing pub, injecting a gourmet chef, and elevating the experience for its patrons crossed the pond and has been permeating this country for a few years now.
Twiggs is the first gastropub in St. Albans and our mission is to provide high quality, freshly prepared food at reasonable prices, maintaining purveyors of local or organic produce, sustainable seafood, and humanely raised meat and poultry as often as possible.
Twiggs Gastropub also goes further to provide a unique selection of beer, wine, and cocktails to enjoy alongside the food. Twiggs Gastropub carries a vast selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle. Boutique wineries are sought out, to give the guests a chance to indulge in something they may have never tried before. While you may recognize a few wineries by name, you will notice even more that you’ve probably never heard of. The team at Twiggs Gastropub has painstakingly gone through many wine tastings to find these gems.
On the cocktail side, we have many unique offerings as well. Recipes developed by Twigg’s own, grace the bartop throughout the evening to create delicious cocktails in order to help elevate your experience.
