Visit time: noon on a hot summer Tuesday. Air conditioning in this historic two-story colonial structure was perfectly balanced. Period costume guide was friendly and knew her history. The period raised bed flower gardens outside are beautiful.

Unlike Buckman Tavern, this tavern does not have a bar. It is not set up as a tavern. It has been renovated through the years and just looks like a house. Well, It was a residence too during its time as a tavern. It is located a significant distance from Hancock Clarke House and Buckman Tavern. (A First Shot ticket... More

We purchased the historical package to tour Buckman Tavern, the Hancock-Clarke House and the Munroe Tavern. We enjoyed all the sites but we especially wanted to cite the Munroe Tavern and especially John Dennis, our guide. We were a small group of 5 on a late, rainy Saturday afternoon. After the standard tour, our group asked deeper questions of John,... More

Loved this historical tour. Maureen was very accommodating and a wonderful guide. Our group needed an expedited tour, which she graciously gave us, and she still made the history of this place come alive. She left out the side commentary that becomes so annoying on many of these tours, and she left you feeling that she had actually been there... More

My sister and I took a break from visiting Lexington Open Studios a recent rainy Sunday to enjoy afternoon tea at Munroe Tavern. The setting was delightful, the staff so welcoming, the tea perfect, and the hot scone out of this world! I had passed the "Open for Tea" sign many times, and am so glad I finally dropped in... More

Checked the web page for operating hours. Made a special out of the way detour to stay in Lexington to tour the Tavern due to the fact that many of my Monroe/Munroe relatives lived in this area during the late 1600's to present. Found the tavern and pulled into the lot. It was closed! Took pictures went back to hotel... More

Nice intro film on the Battle of Lexington from the British perspective. Very interesting tavern from the 1700s; guide was dressed in period garb; very knowledgeable and pleasant tour guide; great artifacts

Although a little long winded, this tour gave lots of information about how the British saw the events of the start of the Revolutionary War. I wish there had been more set up so you could envision how the injured were treated, but the instruments used to treat wounds that they had were very interesting.

As someone who loves Revolutionary War history, I went on a tour of this tavern in the heart of Lexington, MA--also known as the birthplace of American Liberty. This is one of three Taverns in Lexington, and it is known as the tavern where the British Regulars used as a field hospital on 19 April 1775. It has been a... More
