Any cringing at the name (which pays homage to owner Chris Owens’s great-grandfather’s business) will cease after entering this pale wood-toned pub, which is clean as a whistle and friendlier than a cult. The game plays on TV, neighborhood couples dig into burgers, and the younger crowd steels itself for the night with gin and tonics served in mason jars.
