Lunch in Williamsburg

All that walking around through history Learning Our History – Part 1 – Williamsburg gave us quite an appetite, so it was time to eat. We found a little place in town that served “traditional” English fare as well as other fine eats as well. It was called Dog Street Pub. Being the dog lover that I am, I love the name too. Dining at Dog Street Pub will allow you to step back in time to the days of Colonial America without being to far removed from the modern world. You will be sitting on the corners located between yesterday and today.

Dog Street Pub is an American Gastropub with an English accent. It was a bank building that was converted to a restaurant in 2012. “It is in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg and has been serving craft & elevated British influenced fare in a family friendly environment” since its inception.

I just love all the attention to detail here.

The night depository. Again, I just love all the attention to detail. I wish we paid so much attention to all the details today.

All this attention to detail was found in all the food and libations as well.

We have all heard of the Periodic Table of Elements used in chemistry and science, but here at Dog Street Pub, they also have a Periodic Table of Beers and Ales.

The Dog Street Pub specializes in traditional English food with a “revolutionary” American attitude. Everything was so good, AND there was so much of it. I think Larry was the only one who actually finished his food, plus he got quite a bit of mine as well. We all ordered something different and it was all scrumptiously delicious.

Larry ordered traditional fish & chips. I just had to try some as well. Perfect!

Marvin ordered Shepherd’s Pie with a dark ale on the side.

Lori feasted upon a brat burger with a homemade mustard sauce and a light lager.

And I ordered bangers and mash that came with collard greens. And of course, I had to sample a glass of Virginia red as well. Everything just hit the spot perfectly. We were all very full and completely satisfied after our British feast.

Dog Street Pub is located at 401 W. Duke of Glouchester Street in Williamsburg, VA. You can call them at (757) 293-6478 or contact them online at Either way, stop by and enjoy the food and stepping back in time to the early days of Colonial America.
