About Us

McGlynns Pub was established in 1983 when owner Bob Ashby purchased the Drummond Ale House and created a popular neighborhood restaurant with Irish pub charm. As the Pike Creek area grew, so did the restaurant ~ with 4 additions and expansions, including a small but busy banquet room. In May 1999, we opened our second McGlynns in the bustling Peoples Plaza shopping center in Bear, Delaware, at the corner of Routes 40 and 896. Our third location has quite a different look as it sits on the shoreline of beautiful Silver Lake. Opened in 2006, it offers memorabilia from a trip to Ireland and peaceful views of the lake. All three locations offer the same great menu and friendly atmosphere. 

In 2016, the second generation took over the reins as son, Marc Ashby, and longtime Operations Manager, Jeremy Hughes, took control of Ashby Hospitality Group. As co-owners, they each bring their experience and dedication to the same ideals that have made our restaurants so popular. We remain committed to our loyal customers in serving local fresh foods with excellent and friendly customer service. Join us and see how we strive each day to earn our title "Favorite Neighborhood Restaurant!"
