Old Time Resturante
I am taking 12 high school students to Williamsburg in the spring. I am looking for a resturante with an old time theme. OR even a B&B that would hold a nice dinner for them.....any ideas would be great...
RE: Old Time Resturante
If you mean an old time theme as in colonial then the best place (I don't know their current prices) is The King's Arms right in the restored village. It really puts one in the mood for seeing all the sights. I'm sure there are lots of other restaurants to choose from... I just haven't been there in awhile.
RE: RE: Old Time Resturante
The other taverns in Colonial Williamsburg are:
CW operates each tavern on a cycle, so it is in your best interest to call to see which ones will be open during your trip. Reservations at any of the taverns are a must for a group as large as yours. Their number is 1-800-TAVERNS or (757) 229-2141.
Chowning's would probably be my favorite of the bunch.
As far as privately operated "colonial" theme restaurants in greater Williamsburg, there aren't any that come to mind that serve dinner. Mama Steve's is a pancake house on Richmond Rd. open for breakfast and lunch. It has a colonial flair, and really good food.
Travel Tips for Williamsburg
Go back in time . . .
A visit to Williamsburg is like stepping back in time. You can walk through Williamsburg without purchasing a ticket (a day pass is $33 for an adult), but in order to tour the buildings, you'll need a ticket. You can visit the Visitor Center and obtain your tickets, exchange your dollars into Colonial Currency to spend inside Williamsburg (not required) and make reservations for various programs.
We had a flat tire while driving on US60. Hit something in the road and bent the rim and broke the seal and punctured the tire.
Called AAA and they sent a guy out to look at it and after we got the "doughnut" spare on, he gave us the name of the local Chevy dealer where I could go and get it fixed. The tow truck guy offered to tow us (at AAA expense, not mine) but I said that I could find the repair place and the spare tire would be okay until we got the replacement.
We got to the repair place and found out that they don't normally carry rims (neither new nor used) and would have to order one shipped in from Richmond. And the car dealer did not have facilities for changing tires but would have to refer me to a Dunlop tire store.
to make a long story, short.... after 7 hours we finally got the rim delivered to the Chevy dealer, then i had to hot foot it over to the Dunlop dealer to get it fitted and a new tire replacement.
In Rochester, NY all the car dealers of all the brand-name cars all carry a supply of parts and provide all repair services (other than body-dent repairs) right on the premises.
It appears that Williamsburg, VA does it a bit differently.
Broad brimmed hats (17th century)
I didn't find any costumed gentelmen wearing broad brimmed hats in colonial Williamsburg. They were popular in 17th century whereas the colonial town is designed and plays the role of 18th colonial town. So you know now, how to diffentiate the 17th and 18th century gentelman by his costume.
But I saw a few children in the hats and I found them in some stores including at Market Square Stands. Man's laced hat with button costed $26.00 in October 2004. Hmm... it was not a cheap hat. The hats were mostly made of beaver felt, sometimes from wool.
Windmill, Cooper, & Rural Trade Site
This is a photograph of the Robertson's Windmill which is located on North England Street, but it is a copy of the 1723 original windmill. It was reconstructed on its orginal site. this is a lattice-vaned, linen-sailed machine. It stands on the Colonial Williamsburg's Windmill, Cooper, and Rural Trades site.
Closeby, barrel makers, sawyers, and farmers do authentic work. Thus, we visitors are able to see how a colonial barrel was made, how tobacco was packed, how a shingle was split, how wheat was ground, how a board was sawed, and how corn rows were tended.
William Robertson ran the windmill, but he was also appointed clerk of the colony's Council, and a city alderman. Robertson's windmill was a post mill which was a design from Europe in the Middle Ages. Its structure balanced on a large, single timber (post) to be turned into the wind by a man at the tailpole. When a breeze spun the windmill's blades, a shaft * gear turned a millstone to grind corn into meal or wheat into flour.
Colonial coopers made wooden containers for everything. The best were made of white oak.
You can also see shingles made from logs, and the production of tobacco can also be seen.
It's lots of fun to see these actual activities just as they were done in the 18th Century.
