Road Trip #3 - The Fiddlers Green in Winter Park


The Route Locals use

Picture
From the center of Apopka go south on 441 to Lee Road and turn left.  Then turn right on 17/92 and Left on Fairbanks Avenue.  

This is the one instance where I can safely say that you won't miss it. 


 

A little history

The Fiddler’s Green Myth

Fiddler's Green is a legendary supposed afterlife,  where there is perpetual mirth, a fiddle that never stops playing, and dancers who never tire. In 19th-century maritime folklore it was a kind of afterlife for sailors who have served at least 50 years at sea.


They say that an old salt who is tired of seagoing should walk inland with an oar over his shoulder. When he comes to a pretty little village deep in the

country and the people ask him what he is carrying…he will know that he’s found Fiddlers Green.


The people give him a seat in the sun outside the Village Inn with a glass of grog that refills itself every time he drains the last drop and a pipe forever smoking with fragrant tobacco.
From then onwards he has nothing to do but enjoy his glass and pipe and watch the maidens dancing to the music of a fiddle on Fiddlers Green.

The Fiddlers Green is my favorite spot in Winter Park, and one of Orlando’s hidden treasures.  It’s a great spot to hang out with friends, chat and catch up, watch a game, or just hang out and soak up the atmosphere and sing along with the Irish Band. 

The menu has Irish Classics such as Shepard’s pie, or Corned Beef and Cabbage if that is to your liking.

For live music and dinner The Fiddler’s Green is absolutely lovely.  You want an Irish adventure?  Wind up at The Fiddler’s green after the Winter Park Saint Patty’s Day Parade!

On any other night, The Fiddler’s Green keeps the authenticity of Irish pubs with the close in tables, dim lighting, and the intricate art and design of the rich bar.

If not, the Fish and Chips are fantastic, crispy, and warm.   The Shepard’s Pie and the Hen Pot are my favorite dishes, and I love the Leek Soup.  Wash it down with a nice Irish Beer, or a nice mild Merlot.

The service, authenticity, atmosphere, are fantastic.  Add to that great taste, good live music, large rooms, and most importantly a huge bar.  The food, drink, and companionship are simply amazing!  Double thumbs up for this as a date night out without the kids!
