To experience the Tabard Inn properly, you’ll need to be fueled by the wanderer’s spirit. Throughout the building, and up and down the stairs, you’ll discover tucked-away tables, cozy corners, and ample space to gather with friends for any celebration.

The Lounge

A common space that is anything but common. Cozy up near the fire or find an inviting table to enjoy a beverage and a meal while listening to live jazz Sundays and Mondays 6:00-8:30 pm.

The Patio

An enclosed and secluded oasis with an ethereal garden that feels miles away from the bustling city.

The Dining Room

The Bar

A bespoke tavern within the Tabard, it’s the perfect spot for intimate cocktails and a bit of revelry.
