17th-Century Harvest Served Dinner

Step back almost 400 years to enjoy mirth and good company, with hosts from the past and a deliciously authentic Bill of Fare. Our menus have been carefully selected to reflect the English cuisine of the early 17th century. Tables are set with pewter and woodenware, and strewn with fresh herbs. Your dinner will be hosted by Pilgrim interpreters dressed in costume, who speak in the dialect of the period. Entertainers will delight your guests at the Harvest Feast with songs and ballads of the time.
