Hilltop Inn and Burns Pub and Restaurant at the Rocky Mountain Metro Airport

Last week I brought you photos and info about the Rocky Mountain Metro Airport just a few blocks from my place. While my partner in crime Laura and I were there shooting pics, we visited the Burns Pub and Restaurant for lunch. It’s right on the airport grounds. My understanding is that it’s been there quite some time and I’d heard that the restaurant was very good.

In addition to the restaurant/pub, there is a BnB called Hilltop Inn under the same roof.

The rooms, some of which have kitchenettes and some of which have hot tubs, are priced around $120 – $150 per night, with a 10% discount for active military. I’ve heard good things about the BnB, too. Along with the views of the Rockies, there is a decent view of downtown Denver, too:

Of course, Laura and I didn’t stay in the BnB, so this post will focus on our lunch at Burns. One of my favorite shots from that day makes sense if you know that the restaurant fare is authentically British:

The dining room is small, maybe 10-15 tables, with a wonderful fireplace on one end. The fireplace passes through to the pub area on the other side of the wall:

Laura had fish and chips (what else?), which she reported as very good:

I had the bison-blueberry pie, which was like a shepherd’s pie. Not exactly British, but a Colorado take on it:

It was fresh and tasty, too, and not expensive. It was a fun place to try and a welcome warmup on our excursion in the snow. I’m fairly sure I’ll be going back there to try the fish and chips next time.
