Celebrating over 250 years of elegance and congenial tradition, Crooked Run Tavern invites our guests on a truly historic experience.

The Experience: Since 1766, the forefathers of America dined here, warmed by our fire and illuminated by candlelight. Today we strive to keep that tradition alive by providing a welcoming atmosphere and serving dishes inspired by the local area and our colonial past.

Outdoor and Indoor Dining: We offer limited indoor dining in our historic dinning room, parlor room, or private dinning room.  We also offer outdoor dinning on our back porch, fountain patio, or on one of our picnic tables on the Meander Lawn with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
