For the hearty fare, good drink, and good cheer of an eighteenth-century alehouse, come to Chowning's Tavern. Chownings is located on Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg. You don’t need a reservation to step into our authentic 18th-century alehouse. Order from our all day fare menu and catch up on the town gossip with a bottle of root beer, glass of wine, or mug of ale—including our historic brews. When the weather’s nice, take your drinks and conversation outside, under the arbor!
