Longtime Roswell restaurant to close next week

A Roswell Square restaurant that has been open in some iteration since the 1970s is shutting its doors next week.

Public House, located at 605 Atlanta St., announced the closure on its Facebook page over the weekend:

General manager David Wood said the building's landlord had a "different vision" for the building, leading to the sudden closure.

The restaurant, which started as a Peasant eatery in the mid-197os eventually became a Public House, focused on fine dining. Breakfast chain J. Christopher's acquired it in 2002, changing the restaurant's offerings to breakfast and lunch dishes including crepes, omelets, sandwiches and salads.

According to the restaurant's website, the building dates back to 1854 and was originally a commissary for the Roswell Mill. Legend has it that the space is haunted by the ghosts of a young couple who died during the Civil War.

Wood said there are currently no plans for Public House to relocate to a new space. There's no word yet as to what will be moving into the building.
