Generous meals, historic ambiance part of this inn’s dining experience

Generous meals served in warm, comforting environments with real Yankee hospitality: That’s the secret to the popular down-home dining at the historic Publick House. Traditional Yankee fare like pot roast or a roasted turkey dinner (yes, you can have Thanksgiving every day) is the centerpiece of the Historic Tap Room, the 18th century inn’s original dining room with a 6-foot open hearth fireplace. At Ebenezer’s Tavern, there’s lighter, more casual fare like jumbo crab cakes, homemade potato chips and old-fashioned chicken pot pie. The tavern, with vintage brass beer taps and rum barrels and comfy sofas by the fireplace, is just outside the Bake Shoppe, so save room for fresh-baked desserts.
