On a late autumn Monday night in Kilmarnock, VA, there wasn't much to choose from for a nice dinner. We decided to try the Lancaster Tavern up the road in Lancaster, Virginia which we had noticed on the way to Kilmarnock. We found it to be a very good choice.
The Tavern is part of a Colonial style B & B which we were told had a history of more than 200 years serving food and drink. Molly greeted us and provided professional service and friendly conversation throughout our dinner. The home-cooking-style-menu was balanced between meat and seafood selections, which ranged from meatloaf, ribs, ribeye and chicken pot pie to an oyster platter, scallops, crab cakes, seafood pasta, and a seafood platter. I ordered the meatloaf, and received two huge slices in gravy that were delicious.
Beverages include beer, wine and cocktails, all reasonably priced. Entree prices were reasonable also, ranging from $14 for the meatloaf to the high twenties for some of the seafood items. The decor is Colonial and both interesting and attractive. There is parking onsite.
