You don’t need a reservation to step into our authentic 18th-century alehouse. Order from our all day fare menu and catch up on the town gossip with a bottle of root beer, glass of wine, or mug of ale—including our historic brews. When the weather’s nice, take your drinks and conversation outside, under the arbor!
Every day starting at 5 p.m. come join in a Chowning’s tradition and drink colonial drinks, play colonial games, and hear live colonial songs – including bawdy ones, if no children are around!
