Dudley Chateau in Wayland now re-opened

pondrat | May 23, 200906:23 PM     23

For those of you CHOWS who are fans of the (in)famous Dudley Chateau (aka "The Chat"), you'll be pleased to know the pub is now reopened after a complete kitchen remodel and major housecleaning.

Currently a soft-opening menu which will be expanded to a full pub menu in 2 weeks. Full time chef (formerly at Blue Coyote/Maynard) for lunch and dinner. HUGE portions.....10oz angus burger....salads can feed two...panko coated onion rings easily shared by 4...excellent veggie burgers for those of that persuasion

For the past 4 years most of us regarded the menu to be slim jims and chips....and some nights not even that. The thought of now being able to take the kids for an early dinner is almost incomprehensible. Plus eight micro-brew style beers on tap with a solid selection of bottles. New plasma screen TV's in virtually every corner of the building. Credit cards accepted and WiFi if you need air cover during business hours !

Despite the new family friendly attitude, the character of the Chat remains the same. This still a small local neighborhood drinking establishment with the look and feel of a fisherman's hangout....and rightfully so. This was Ted Williams secret fishing and watering hole. And the place is still an"everyman bar" where tradesmen, tech geeks, soccer moms and hedge fund managers can blend together to watch the Sox and debate politics...all on equal footing.
