The Black Sheep

The Black Sheep, like Omar’s, is an Ashland icon. Fashioned like a British pub, you can play darts, make calls from a London-style phone booth, or just enjoy an English beer or meal. On Sundays they have Celtic music. I’ve actually been to the Black Sheep twice in the past couple weeks. I’ve never been in Louie’s (bottom left), but I’m guessing it, and the Black Sheep, were quite crowded last night for St. Patty’s Day.

The building the Black Sheep is in is more than a hundred years old (130 years next year to be exact). The Cafe sign on the side of it isn’t that old but I’m guessing it is several decades old. TheĀ heraldic banners you see in this picture are all over town, especially the plaza area, because of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

    Looks like my kind of place. Wonder why the name, “Black sheep”?

    Just catching up on your great photos Al. I don’t get out and about much with my DH so ill (cancer). This is such a nice building and colorful paint. I’ve not been to Ashland, enjoy seeing it through your lense.

    Love your photos! I took in both the Black Sheep and Louie’s for the first time last April during the film festival. The Black Sheep was very nice and friendly with an interesting menu. We liked it. Louie’s is famous for its hamburgers (it’s won the Best Hamburgers in Ashland vote more than once, I think) and we tried those; I had a veggie burger actually but even it seemed sinfully good. Highly recommend both places!
