Ye Olde Tavern is a delightful place to eat. The decor is set to take you back in time. The furnishings are typical for the period. The food was wonderful and the price reasonable for what you get. This is fine dining and a must if you are in the area.

Wonderfully authentic ambience, efficient and professional service, great chow. Unbeknownst to us, they have an early bird (before 6 PM) special menu @ $18. This included delicious cranberry fritters, soup or salad, entree and dessert. Amazing. Of course we jumped on it. I had pot roast and wife had chicken pot pie. Excellent. Glad we arrived earlier than planned. So,... More
