"Quaint But Loud."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Arrived for a wedding (a little bit of a wedding factory, but that's okay) and was very impressed with charm of the Publick House. Came to the room and it was nice comfortable bed, nice sitting area, two bathrooms. Attended a great wedding until 10:00 pm, then returned to our room around 10:30 pm. This was when we attended our second, uninvited wedding reception. The music was so loud through the paper thin walls from the adjourning function room that we couldn't hear the TV in our room. I called the front desk shortly before midnight to ask when it might end. I called a second time shortly after midnight (above the melodious Isley Brothers "Shout"), to be informed it should be ending soon. Quaint, but bring your earplugs.
