After 18 Years, MacDuffs on Railroad Ave to Close in June

On Tuesday, the owner of MacDuffs Public House, a popular staple of Greenwich’s restaurant scene, announced that after 18 years in business he would be closing the business on Saturday, June 24.

“As the owner of this establishment, it is the hardest decision I have had to make, but unfortunate circumstances have led us to this point. The building is going up for sale and we are unable to renew our lease,” wrote Scott Sievwright wrote on a Facebook post Tuesday afternoon.

“Iain and I started MacDuff’s with the idea of bringing a proper pub to Greenwich. We wanted to show off what real pub cuisine should be, with fresh food made from scratch by our amazing chef Gustavo, and a comfortable atmosphere that could be enjoyed by everyone,” he added.

Sievwright said he hopes patrons will come celebrate the restaurant before it closes. “We will be putting all of our best specials on in the coming weeks and there will be multiple goodbye parties over the next few weeks with some of our favorite bands!”

Lastly he quoted David Bowie: “I don’t know where I am going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”

MacDuffs is located at 99 Railroad Ave.
