In The Heart Of South Buffalo


Our Story

Pubs have always been places to gather and chat. South Buffalo is our home and we want to convey its warmth and character in this neighborhood pub. From the Early Times to the Blackthorn, we have grown with our friends. We invite new friends to join us and see what they’ve been missing.
The people, after all, are the heart and soul of the pub. The pub patron is not just a customer, but a guest and a friend.

Proprietors Pat Lalley & Hugger Adymy
