Special Features

Stop in for some brunch at the G.W. Tavern. Named after our first president in honor of his passage through Washington, the G.W. Tavern's charming vibe will set you back in time to the 1850's. Dig into some comfort food by the fireplace in the winter, and take in the amazing views of the Shepaug River on the patio in the summer. This little hole in the wall is almost always a full house. It's no wonder this is the go-to spot for locals year-round.
