Great food, superb selection of adult beverages and good service. Combine all that with a friendly, eclectic mix of local patrons and stimulating conversation and it adds up to a very good experience! Father Tom knew what he was doing when he opened this place.

Favored watering hole for university and theatre people...and just about everyone else who knows to avoid "resaurant row".

First and foremost this is a pub! Excellent selection of local and regional craft beers and a multitude of other libations. As a bonus to the drinks they have a limited but enticing appetizer and food menu. My selections for the evening were the bruschetta and the Neuben sandwich for my meal. Overall, both selections were worth ordering but the Nueben shined brightly! The Nueben is now my favorite "Rueben" based sandwich. Father Tom's take on the classic sandwich is superb. As for the atmosphere, I have a soft spot for old restored buildings and they make the most of there quaint space. If your travels take you to Cookeville and you long for a non-chained experience, give it a try. You shall not be disappointed.

Father Tom's Pub was a refreshing change from your normal chain restaurants. A few of us visited here while on business in Cookeville. The food was delicious and the menu had quite a few unique options. We ordered the cheese sampler for an appetizer and we all very much enjoyed it. I had the burger and it was also very good. I hope I have the chance to visit again next time I'm in town.

This place has to be the best pub in town! The atmosphere is enjoyable with a uniquely hip atmosphere, especially for a small town pub. The selection of craft beers is phenomenal & food absolutely delicious.
