Coal Town Public House – The Perfect Place to Gather
This spacious, modern-American restaurant sits on the edge of the lake in the Westhaven community just outside downtown Franklin and makes the perfect setting for a large party or private event.
With four different spaces to choose from or combine, you and your guests will enjoy a top-notch experience no matter how you plan it. Here is a look inside each of the unique spaces at this venue:
The Magli Green Patio is a temperature-controlled retreat that can seat up to fifty guests. Overlooking the gorgeous Magli Green lawn, your guests can enjoy snacking on charcuterie over a spiced lemonade with plenty of space to circulate so your guest of honor can make the rounds.
On the opposite side of the venue, Coal Town Public House features another more intimate temperature-controlled patio that can seat a large party of twenty guests or forty guests reception-style. This is the perfect space for a sips and snacks arrangement if a sit-down meal isn’t in the cards.
The outdoor patio is also well-suited for a pleasant lakeside gathering. This area is completely open-air and sits right on Westhaven Lake. It can serve up to seventy-five guests reception-style. This space also features a walk-up bar, which makes for a laid-back approach to a work mixer or early evening reception.
Coal Town Public House also features interior space that can be used for a partial buyout or in conjunction with one of the attached patios. The space has beautiful architectural touches - high ceilings with exposed beams, modern lighting embellishments and textures make it a beautiful space for guests to congregate and enjoy catching up.
Once you have decided on a space, food and drink come easily. The event menu is both playful and elegant. Executive Chef Chris Cunningham loves including his team in menu direction, and his event menus are no different.
With items like Brunch-by-the-Foot (think charcuterie-style boards featuring Waffle Skewers and Syrup) as the sweet centerpiece and bagels with dill cream cheese and lox for a savory option, the perfect bridal brunch or gathering can be achieved by offering something for everyone.
Luncheons and Mixers can be shareable and unique with customized welcome cocktails, tea sandwiches and artisan cheese boards.
Plated dinners with curated wine pairings are always a memorable way to mark an occasion, whether whether you are planning an intimate night amongst friends or a wedding rehearsal dinner.
Regardless of the occasion, Coal Town Public House makes the perfect setting for a wonderful day to remember. Take a virtual tour or find out more information, visit
