The Wooden Nickel is a teeny tiny pub in the middle of historic Hillsborough that's got the quaint charm and warm decor that immediately gets you hooked. While a little out of the ways for anyone living in the main Triangle areas, this place is well worth the drive if you're searching for something cozy and full of personality with top notch craft drinks. Sound good? Thought so. The bar food is plentiful and delicious—the kind that will make traditional British pubs do a double-take. You'll find a standard bar selection, with daily changes and additions thrown into the mix—like bison burgers, stuffed banana peppers, vanilla bean shrimp and scallops, and risotto. The drink menu features a very wide selection of premium local crafts brews and international labels that most bars don't carry, organized by taste and brew type—there's way more than just your regular lager! They also serve a number of ciders and are stocked with high quality spirits for tasty cocktails. Much like the name suggests, the Wooden Nickel's interior design is mostly wood and old timey, with dim lights and dark corners meant for imbibing and chatting. The pinnacle of their philosophy is to take good care of you, so take a little hike and treat yourself!
