The Noble Fir
Seattle, WA 98107
Seattle Weekly's Description
The Fir, which joined Old Ballard Avenue's tavern lineup in the summer of 2010, is definitely a welcome addition. It's bright and clean, with a quaint wall of bookshelves and plenty of seating, including several huge wooden booths for larger parties, and offers an admirable selection of Northwest beverages served in 20-ounce imperial pints. The Fir also has one of the largest selection of ciders we've encountered in this city, with 12 different varieties, including local flavors from Olympia (Spire Mountain Dark & Dry Cider on tap) and Mt. Vernon (Fire Barrel Cider in a bottle).
Tips from foursquare
That nosh menu allows you to mix-and-match your own meats, fish, cheese and vegan options. Food writer Nancy Leson suggests paying the $2 surcharge for Wilson Fish's smoked wild salmon, it's worth it.
Big selection of hard ciders, in addition to beer and wine.
Come in for Pints for Parks- great drinks for a great cause!
The library there is filled with travel books. It's a fun addition to the bar.
