Sewell’s Lazy Lanigan’s to become Village Pub (

South Jersey Times is reporting today that Lazy Lanigan’s in Sewell/ Washington Township will become a new location for Swedesboro’s Village Pub.

It seems that the building where Lazy Lanigan’s is, which sits in a small shopping on Egg Harbor Rd close to 5-points has had some difficulty finding a regular crowd since the building was first built, having switched names at least 4 times since opening.

What is different and exciting about the new ownership is they come in with a known and loved reputation.   One can assume they plan to take the good things they are doing at the Swedesboro location and bring it to Sewell.

Since my wife and I moved to Deptford,  Lazy Lanigan’s has become one of our more frequent places to hang.  It is very close to our home and has a very appealing interior.  We frequently would discuss with ourselves and others “why are the crowds so light here”?

So here’s to hoping the Village Pub owners bring their magic to 5-points.

This news comes on the heels of another bar/restaurant change, with AJ Millers opening soon in the spot of Craft House (Taylor’s and Alpine) in Williamstown.  That establishment will be run by management of Rack’s in Atco.
