Dine At The Historic Spot In New Jersey Where George Washington Drank Ale

The small town of Rocky Hill looms large in Garden State history, as it was where General George Washington called home for a time. And while he was here, he was in the presence of another American institution – the Rocky Hill Inn & Tavern, one of the oldest restaurants in the United States. This historic pub in New Jersey first received its tavern license in 1745 and operated as an inn and public house consistently after that – including, according to many accounts, playing host to the most famous resident Rocky Hill ever had. The days of the inn are long behind us, but the restaurant and pub still exist – now functioning as a popular modern gastropub. You can step inside, take in the history, and enjoy a fine meal and stiff beverage where George Washington once held court.
