ENGLISH PUB IS NOW OPEN
Real estate developer and restaurateur William Kotis II has opened his long-anticipated English Gastro Pub – The Marshall Free House. Located at 1211 Battleground Ave. in Greensboro, the restaurant is in a remodeled space formerly occupied by Pizzeria Uno and Rum Monkey. Kotis says The Marshall Free House will focus on craft and U.K.-style beer, craft cocktails and British-style food such as fish and chips. I’ve already been fortunate enough to try the Bread Pudding and it’s a blessing to behold.
