Complimentary Light Appetizers
The Inn offers traditional seaside New England fare with a fusion flare, mainstream beer selections as well as quality microbrews, wine, and craft-cocktails in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. On some nights, to further enhance the casual and comfort air of the barroom, the menu and beverages may be enjoyed while listening to the light entertainment offered.
Since it was built in 1799 by Joseph Meigs, a master carpenter in the shipyards, the building has served as a blacksmith shop, two separate dwellings, a ship chandler, a storehouse for the China tea trade, and a speakeasy. Meigs used the building as his home and also established the twin business of tavern and general store. The tavern was perhaps the busiest part of the Squire's domain, as the men of Mattapoisett were known to be a hearty lot. Proof of this is brought to light by the custom at one time observed by the shipyard known as “leven an four.” At eleven o'clock and four o'clock each day the men took a break and the boss furnished the rum for refreshment.
