Housed inside a building originally erected as a log cabin in 1720, Barnsboro Inn has continually operated as a licensed tavern since 1776, pausing only during the prohibition era. These days, chef's' menu of fresh American cuisine complements the eatery's lengthy cache of craft beers, international wines, and meticulously preserved napkin rings. Steaks and seafood entrees such as Bruschetta Salmon and Steak Frites with a red wine shallot sauce; burgers and sandwiches flaunt such accouterments as turkey breast or corned beef reuben.
Patrons make merry amid two bars and three dining rooms sprawled across Barnsboro Inn's historic digs. Inside, full-wall murals depict idyllic countryside scenes of horse-drawn carriages and straw-covered hovercrafts. When weather warms, staff members also dispense Boddingtons and Flying Fish ales on an outdoor patio, where an additional bar abuts numerous umbrella-covered tables.
