Not Your Typical Tavern
For an unexpected meal and a lively evening, settle in at Chowning’s.
Chowning’s Tavern is not your typical tavern. Originally opened by Josiah Chowning in 1766, who wanted to appeal to the “ordinary sort,” this one-of-a-kind tavern offers menu items that are anything but ordinary.
From Welsh rarebit to southern favorites like Brunswick stew and Virginia pulled pork sandwiches, this menu aims to please. You will enjoy the feast in front of you as well as the entertainment that fiddlers and servers in 18th-century costume provide.
