Yarmouth is getting a new pub called the Owl & Elm, scheduled to open at 365 Main St., next to Handy’s Market, on Sept. 20.

Yarmouth residents Sean Ireland and Caitlin Henningsen leased the space, previously occupied by You Wanna Pizza Me, from Scott Dugas.

“The pub is a place for everyone to share a family meal, catch up with an old friend, meet new friends, enjoy a game, listen to music, grab a drink or just stop in to say hello,” Henningsen said in a news release. “We hope to provide a space that is comfortable and familiar, a place that you can call your own.”

Two chefs have been hired to run the kitchen. Rocco Marzelli, formerly of Nosh Kitchen Bar in Portland, and Matthew Dorr, formerly of Hot Suppa in Portland, will produce comfort food with a contemporary flair, made from scratch, for the pub. Dishes will include pub classics such as seafood stew, sliced steak, mac-and-cheese, chicken pot pie, fish and chips, and French onion soup, according to Henningsen.

The Owl & Elm will be open daily from 4 to 10 p.m. Starting Columbus Day weekend, brunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
