The Smoke and Barrel is Sanford’s feel-good neighborhood pub, with a focus on outstanding slow-cooked smoked meats, NC craft beer and bourbon. We are truly an all-American, Southern-style gastropub.

At the Smoke and Barrel, you can enjoy anything from the best slow-cooked smoked pork and beef brisket or our outstanding deli style sandwiches, house made sides and accompany them with one of our 12 NC craft beers on tap. NC has become the place for craft beer in the Southeast, boasting over 150 craft breweries, many of which are located within just a short drive from Sanford. This allows us to serve only the freshest, highest quality beer you will find on tap anywhere. To cap things off, we have an amazing selection of America’s iconic spirit, bourbon whiskey.

With live local music on the weekends, great food and drink, a friendly staff and a downtown location, the Smoke and Barrel is Sanford’s neighborhood pub.
