This was a bit of a random find. We were looking for another place that didn't work out and at a loss of where to go. So we decided to check out what idines were available in the area and being a tavern it looked like it would handled whatever taste we decided we wanted. I am so happy we did.
Set inside the original Atkinson Tavern building that was brought to the site of the Storrowton Village Museum and renamed the tavern has a very old historical feel to it that fits well with the area.
The dining room was quite comfortable while you sat surrounded by antiques. The old walls did a great job holding out the weather and the fireplace took the edge off the cold from outside when the door opened.
Although still a bit busy with the lunch crowd we were quickly seated and shown the menu. This is where my eyes lit up. They featured a chicken pot pie which is one of those items when done right I truly love. This one did not disappoint as it was about the size of an apple turnover and covered in sauce.
We also ordered a cheeseburger which was quite nice as well getting the rave of being the best burger she has had in months. It was served on 2 slices of toast along with fries and a cup of mayo and ketchup on the side.
