Originally opened by Jane Vobe in 1772, this authentic reproduction public house serves up a transporting experience for the senses in Colonial Williamsburg. Everything is true to the time period at King’s Arms Tavern, from the fashion sported by servers to the pewter candlesticks—all adding to an air of colonial elegance. Inspired by 18th-century recipes, but with updates to suit 21st-century tastes, tuck in to a chophouse menu featuring prime rib, pork chops, and more.
ADA Accessible dining is available in the Purdie Kitchen. Please note this colonial building is separate from King’s Arms Tavern. Please check-in at the front, and our host will escort guests to the Purdie Kitchen.
The Williamsburg Inn is pleased to present the Rockefeller Room, the crown jewel of Abby and John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s home away from home.

- PVPennyVvipNew York / Tri-State Area •40 reviews4.0Dined 2 days agoBeautiful room!! Took a long time to get our cocktails and were brought to us one by one. Charcuterie platter was large enough for our table of 4 and contained interesting cheeses, meats and bread. Pumpkin soup thick and creamy and very tasty. Chicken pot pie, pork and duck entrees were all very good. Desserts were pretty disappointing. Crème brûlée was just ok and sesame profiterole was dry and tasteless. All in all, an expensive dinner with so so service and ok meal.More infoTerrace Room at the Williamsburg Inn$$$$• American• Colonial Williamsburg•4.6
