Check Out These Cozy New Dining Huts in Shorewood

Three Lion’s Pub has a new outdoor eating option.

This weekend Three Lions British pub in Shorewood (4515 N. Oakland Ave.) is debuting its outdoor huts – shaped like little houses – for dining and drinking. It’s a trial run to see how folks like them, so they’re currently first-come, first-served for the five available structures. 

And they’re also full service, so you can order all manner of food and drink out there. While they seat six people, technically, I’m told that four people would be most comfortable inside them. They include a heater to help stay toasty.



We want to see your best work. Architects, interior designers, renovation experts and landscapers: Enter your residential projects in Milwaukee Magazine’s new design competition. 

As for what to eat when you’re there, the Lenten menu feature several fish plates including fish ’n chips (beer-battered Atlantic cod) and pan-fried walleye ($12-$16). The dinner menu is a mix of appetizers (poutine, Scotch eggs), soups and salads, sandwiches (Reuben, pub burger) and main courses like corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, and Lion’s pasty – a shortrib- and root vegetable-filled pastry served with gravy and mashed potatoes ($14-$16). 

Once they work out the kinks, as they say, the huts will be available by reservation.
