COVID-19 CT State Mandated Protocols

The Cookhouse is now open. All Staff members have been tested and the restaurant was deep cleaned. As per the newest executive order, we must close our dining areas at 10:00, so we will be closing the kitchen at 9:00 pm Fridays and Saturdays; Sunday, Tuesday through Thursday at 8:00 pm. We will remain closed on Monday to deep clean the restaurant. In addition, we can only seat a max of 8 people per table.

Please remember to wear your masks when coming into the restaurant and when going to the bathrooms and when exiting the restaurant. You can take them off when you are sitting at your table having dinner and drinks. Be aware of social distancing while in the restaurant. Please note that all weekly and Happy Hour specials will not resume until the restaurant and bar are open to full capacity. We will continue to offer certain specials for take-out.

Call us for take-out or curbside (860) 355-4111

NOTE: We continue to monitor the evolving situation and are remaining diligent with cleaning and sanitation. We are asking everyone to use the provided hand sanitizer upon entering the building and practice social distancing by keeping 6 feet apart at all times. To also help with social distancing we ask that only one person comes in for pickup. We are still offering curbside pick up for anyone interested.

Catering & Events

There is no easier, tastier way to have a party than to have The Cookhouse cater it. We've done parties for ten to three thousand and everything in between. 

Think of this: You won't have to shop. You won't have to cook. You won't have to clean up. And, it probably won't cost much more than if you did it yourself. And, those pricey fancy caterers: forget about them! And, the food will be so good! So, have a drink and enjoy your party.
