The Robert Morris Inn and Tavern 1710

Great hospitality, 300 years in the making. Let us be your Winter haven.

Once the home of Robert Morris who gained fame as "Financier of the Revolution". General and later President George Washington was a close friend and visited Robert Morris often. In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here. More history is located here. Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under famous celebrity Chef Partner, Mark Salter.

Enter the Inn and step back over 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in these cooler months. This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service.

December through March inclusive, we are closed Mondays and Tuesday. We will open for private parties or groups on those days.

Unfortunately we do not have an elevator and some of the stairs are quite steep, if you have mobility issues please contact us. Due to the age and nature of our building, we do not have disabled specific bedrooms.
