Glenn and Mary Beaulieu opened The Main Pub Tavern in 1980, originally 14’ wide and 50’ in length and serving only beer as allowed with a Tavern license. Within a year, a liquor license was acquired, the building was purchased and we became The Main Pub Restaurant, expanding into the vacuum cleaner sales store and the carpet store on either side that became our lounge and dinning areas. In 1985 we purchased and tore down the lime-green Pine Hurst Grocery Store to add parking spaces, and in the 90s we added the atrium to our dinning space. Now in over 40 years of business, The Main Pub is still thriving as the longest running family owned restaurant in Manchester.

Keith Beaulieu purchased the restaurant from his proud parents in 2008 and with a passion for good food, craft beers and live music, has put fourth a fresh energy towards revitalizing The Main Pub Restaurant. In 2012, renovated and expanded the kitchen facilities, allowing us to improve the quality of the food served and shorten the duration between ordering and reaching your table. In 2018, Keith expanded again to build out the huge 100+ seat patio and added a private parking lot for guests. During the Covid shut-down, more updates were made to the interior to freshen up & modernize the look & feel of the dining room, and bar area. Additionally, the sound system and Main Stage were enhanced for the return of Live entertainment.

The Main Pub is a regular tour stop between Boston and New York for many groups and artists.

Keith set out to bring a wider variety of artists and bands in as entertainment, constructed a hand built stage, installed a concert PA system. Some of the finest local (Kung Fu, Bronze Radio Return) and nationally (Tim Reynolds, Karl Denson) touring bands have since graced the stage at The Main Pub.
