Fans of fine food served in warm, historic surroundings will love inn’s dining options

One of the many delights of the Publick House Historic Inn is the dining experience, whether you are seeking a light lunch in a charming tavern with 18th-century ambiance or a hearty Yankee meal in the inn’s original dining room, with a 6-foot open-hearth fireplace as a centerpiece. In the Historic Tap Room, enjoy a traditional roasted turkey dinner or Yankee pot roast. In Ebenezer’s Tavern, with its comfortable wingback chairs and vintage brass beer taps and rum barrels, you might try the jumbo crab cakes or famous shepherd’s pie. Both the tap room and tavern serve generous portions, creative specialty drinks and the kind of mouth-watering desserts you can only get if your inn has a famous bake shop attached.
