      The Cranbury Inn originated as a stagecoach stop, a "post house", in the mid 1700's.  Established to offer food and drink to travelers passing through this area, The Cranbury Inn continues to function today for this original purpose.
    Our present building comprises two of the three original taverns that were on this site; dating from the mid 1700's and the late 1700's.  These original taverns were built together by the Innkeepers house in 1800.  These three structures are Timber Frame Construction utilizing white oak & pine trees from the primeval forest that existed here at that time.
    What is now our Liquor Store used to be the Justice of the Peace Office and the Telegraph Office; since the end of prohibition it has served as a retail liquor store and the Inn's "wine cellar". 
    In 1933 our Main Dining Room was built, and murals were painted in our Lafayette Tavern Room as part of the WPA work project.  Since then minor alterations & changes to the kitchen have made the Inn look the way it does today. 
    The last of the rooms that the public spent the night in, were converted to private dining rooms in 1982.
    The Inn is an alleged stop on the Underground Railroad & boasts an alleged "body hiding box" in a converted flu space.
    The "Big Barn" at The Cranbury Inn burned to the ground on October 8th, 1902.  We have built its replacement ~ The Legacy, a 200+ seat, seven bay Dutch barn style, Timber Frame dining room, that is connected to the Historic structure through a new lobby and is flanked along the north wall by a new state-of-the-art kitchen. This is the fourth century to see construction at The Cranbury Inn.
    After 250 years of operation The Cranbury Inn is internationally known and serves guests from all over the world.  We hope that you enjoy your dining experience here at The Cranbury Inn and return to see us again. 
Please sign our guest book.
