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.

    Waitress forgot our peanut soup but then gave us free dessert. The pork was very good but the Cornish hen was bland. Chocolate tart was wonderful!

    These historic restaurants are over rated. They have no 'healthy' meals, all smothered in gravy and lots of carbs in everything. Once is enough to experience eating in these Taverns along with the traditional meals. But they need to consider having more healthy meals along with only a 'few' of those traditions from way-back-when! Once is enough!

    This was such a fun place to eat. Like stepping back in time from the servers to the menu was all colonial in feel. Food was delicious but a little on the spendy side. Worth it though for the atmosphere!

    We certainly enjoyed our time and will be back! The history explanations were great, the 24oz beer were awesome, and the food very flavorful. I had the prime rib and loved the horseradish combination of flavors. A little pricey however, overall great experience. Thank you

    Was nice before the room filled up. There is no acoustic tile so became very noisy. Also, my husband is handicapped and had to walk a flight of stairs to use the bathroom. He fell on the last step coming down, but fortunately was not hurt. Parking is difficult. The food was delicious, but my husband cannot eat there in the future. The server was very courteous and knowledgeable.

    Have eaten at the Historic Taverns a number of times but this was the first time post COVID. It appears the food quality has declined despite the skyrocketing prices. The Squash Soup was good but extremely salty & thin for a cream soup. I tried the vegetarian Onion Pie--quite bland with only potatoes & onions in it. The description on the menu says that egg is layered in the pie before baking but the server said that there is only a fried egg put on top before serving so I declined the egg. The service was very good. Like the fiddler that plays in each room but we only caught the end of his set as we were seated & he never returned. Would recommend only if eating the historic ambience is your priority.
