I recently made my second visit to the Bond Street Pub Before a Steve Earle concert at the Tower theater in Bend. The room has a slightly corporate feel, like a committee designed a room that's supposed to feel "local. You also get bombarded by Deschutes merch.
The quality of the brews is top notch, as expected from Deschutes. Even the examples of the mainline brews (Mirror Pond, Black Butte etc.) are brewed on-site, making a bit fresher and tastier than usual.
I haven't eaten here but all the food I've seen has looked to be above average examples. The prices were a touch high, but you're in a tourist/destination town and that's to be expected.
Overall, a nice little spot, certainly worth a visit.

This was stop #26 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Monday afternoon to enjoy their beers and to have lunch. The pub is located in a downtown storefront-like setting among other commercial businesses. The interior is setting is two different arrangements depending on whether you sit in the front are or in the bar area. (I think there is also a large dining area off to the side too.) To us, the bar area is more fitting of a pub vibe, but where we were seated was okay too.
We ordered a sampler flight of 6 (our choice here) of the 17 beers that were available, and only one of them was a repeat (intentional) of the beers that we had at the Portland pub location. (Fresh Squeezed IPA was the repeat beer, and it did not impress me at either location, at least it didn’t live up to the amount of hype that I’ve read. However, it is a good IPA.) All of the beers were very well brewed to style or better, and we felt that the Not the Stoic Belgian-style Quad was exceptional. Our food selections were also very good.
We enjoyed this pub more than the Portland location because it was smaller with less hustle and bustle, and less noisy. The beers at each location rated out with identical scores under our rating system. This is a great pub and is highly recommended.
