We found this spot on a snowy day mainly due to its fireplace. It's a really cute old Washington hotel with a livingroom feel to it. Unfortunately the bar service was so poor we ended up leaving without finishing our drinks which themselves were below average. Sadly you will have to find another fireplace in another bar.

The Tabard Inn is an experience in its own right. Each room is different, rather small by US standards and has no TV. The lounge is wood paneled, dark and cosy. Breakfast is included in the very reasonable prices (for DC) and there is a wide range of accommodation from single with a shared bathroom upwards. The restaurant is always... More

We were staying at The Mayflower for 2 nights on a leisure trip, and our local friends chose this place to meet for dinner. Wow! It was a row house with great curb appeal, and as we walked from the main level lobby to the dining room on the second floor, I was taking in all the historical charm and... More

Every trip to Washington, DC requires a visit to this quaint, unique, and, historical venue, in the heart of our nation's capital! I love the rooms, each individually designed with finds from the world over. The restaurant and bar is small and packed every night for excellently prepared cocktails and meals. The lobby is an actual Scottish castle's drawing room!... More

My daughter lives in DC and wanted to go to brunch for her BDay. After numerous searches online the Tabard came up as one that would fit the bill. We made reservations, highly recommended especially on a Sunday, and were seated exactly at our time. Place was packed and a little warm although it was a very warm day for... More

We went for dinner on a Sunday night. Had reservations, they seated us and after nearly 15 minutes a waiter finally came over and asked if we would like a beverage. Yes we ordered. We watched the bartender make the drinks and we waited 10 more minutes to get them. At which point we moved to the bar stools from... More

Had the trout and a glass of wine one night and a burger and glass of wine the other - pretty darn good! Really charming historic and fun place! Nice staff - loved the bartender! Will come back. Great atmosphere for a business trip - keep it up.

My brother had a wedding there, so my mom and I stayed one night. We stayed in the top floor...room was expensive. Everything was old and bed was extremely old, squeaky and itchy, but it was for my brother, so I let it go. It was SO loud because their walls are super thin... Then, at night, I went to... More

The Tabard Inn, just off Dupont Circle, has a delightful cocktail lounge located in one of the Victorian houses that make up the Inn. The cocktail lounge is like a sitting room, with sofas and easy chairs, coffee and side tables, and paintings and prints of scenes from 17th and 18th century America, including portraits of George Washington. The restaurant,... More
