  • Accessible
  • Family Friendly

Family dining from around the world.

Drawing influences from every corner of the former British Empire, the cuisine at James Shield’s Tavern offers an authentic taste of the cosmopolitan nature of the Colonies in the 18th century. Enjoy sugar, molasses, and rum from the West Indies. Sip wines from Portugal, coffee from Africa, and tea from Asia. Savor unique spice blends from around the world, and sample colonial favorites such as black eye pea soup, butter chicken, and West African stew.

 

Due to the weather, Shield’s Tavern is closed and will reopen on Tuesday, September 18th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
