This gastropub draws its name from the road upon which it sits, Duke of Gloucester (DoG), but the interior is much more focused on man's furry best friend. Owner and chef David Everett opened the pub with the goal of pairing the best craft beers with the best pub food around - a goal he has since attained. Visitors to the pub can sip on craft beers from around the country while munching away on one of the gourmet menu offerings.
This popular establishment's mission is to evoke the fun, rowdy and nostalgic idea of a traditional 18th century tavern. Famous for its Gambols, uproarious games and songs that were forms of entertainment in old taverns and pubs, Josiah Chowning's Tavern is a popular joint for the young and old alike. Visitors are often encouraged by the friendly staff members to join the festivities and if you decide to participate, you certainly won't regret the decision. The atmosphere is antiquated yet comfortable; perfect for an engaging, fun night out.
The original King's Arms Tavern was constructed in 1772 under the direction of Jane Vobe and immediately became the tavern of choice for the upper echelons of Colonial Williamsburg's society. Today, the tavern has been reconstructed so that visitors can enjoy a delicious meal in a fashionable colonial setting. Little details like the period piece descriptions on the menu and the colonial offerings, will make patrons feel like they've stepped back in time. At dinner, the restaurant is lit entirely by candlelight, and musicians dressed in colonial garb serenade patrons.
