CT: Litchfield County- Washington, GW Tavern

Coupling with a trip to Hidden Valley Preserve or Steep Rock Preserve, a great place to stop for lunch or dinner is GW Tavern.

Situated on the Shepaug River, the tavern is quite popular based on the queue that appeared 1/2 hour before opening. They have a lovely outdoor deck with tiered porch options for seating. I found it reasonably priced especially when you add in the environment.

The staff was friendly, the food out timely and they followed all covid guidelines with both an indoor or outdoor distanced options.

The grounds include a gazebo, lovely trees and a stone path down to the river. By the river is a dedication to a relative of a staff member. It reflects to me something special about this place and it’s staff.

I enjoyed the homemade salmon burger with dill cream served on a brioche bun and it was delicious.

My delicious lunch


Above is their link to their site with menu. I would highly recommend adding this to your day trip itinerary for the food and environment.
