About The High court pub

We are a community-driven bar/pub that offers food options not available anywhere else in our community. We also offer an Air BnB loft for overnight and short-stay rentals.

The building housing The High Court Pub opened in 1876, where Judge J.G. French, “Squire Frenchy,” dispensed justice from the third floor.

His court was known as “The High Court”. The High Court Pub’s interior reflects the scenic beauty of the surrounding area while also paying tribute to Lanesboro’s storied past.

In our multi-level pub, you have the choice of taking a seat on the main floor with a view of musicians playing on the second-floor stage; or taking a seat on the second floor with a view of historic Lanesboro.

In the summer months, we have two outdoor decks and one patio. One deck is heavily shaded, and the other overlooks the Root River, which runs through Lanesboro. On the patio, you will find Bags (AKA Corn Hole) and Hammer-Schlagen!
