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 taverns are located in the Historic Area, and not on a public street. The Tavern is a short walk from the Tavern Parking lot which is on Francis Street.

    The food, service and ambiance were absolutely outstanding. There were two young kids when I was there so there was quite a a bit of racket but it was great nonetheless. I recommend the hens and pork.

    The food was absolutely amazing! I don’t think there was a morsel left on any of our plates, but it was fairly expensive for the experience. All in all, I would still want to come again.

    The Cornish Hen was so tender it fell off the bone. Best dinner I have ever had in my life. Our waitress Paula was excellent, she had a knack of always being there right when we needed her.

    The food was very good. I highly recommend the pork shank- it was cooked to perfection. My companion had the Onion Pye and was delighted with it.

    We eat King's Arms Tavern for the ambiance and atmosphere but the food is really good also. There is a musician playing 18th century tunes on a recorder and guitar. Well worth the price.
