TIP: Chownings Tavern for a Drink

A reconstructed 18th-century alehouse, Chowning’s serves casual quick fare for lunch, including traditional pit-style BBQ ordered from the new walk-up service area in the tavern garden. You can eat either inside the tavern or under an garden arbor. After 5 PM, Chownings becomes a true 18th-century tavern and Gambol’s (a lively nighttime program presented for 25 years) operates throughout the evening. Costumed balladeers lead family sing-alongs, and costumed servers play popular games of the day. From 8 PM until closing, Chowning’s caters to a more mature audience.

TIP: Stop by Chownings in the evening for a good mug of Colonial ale / beer and some peanuts.
