Victorian Thanksgiving Dinner

“Surely there can be nothing more delightful to the human heart than these periodical gatherings of the parted ones of every family in this season of plenty, for the purpose of gratitude, devotion and love.”

– The Headquarters, 1844

Step back into the Victorian Era, and enjoy a lavish Thanksgiving dinner with your friends and family. At this time of year, Victorians gathered to give thanks for the bountiful harvest, good health, new babies, the monarchy, employment and other blessings that came their way.

Our popular Victorian Thanksgiving Dinner features a choice of classic roast turkey or prime rib and all the traditional trimmings. Enjoy the company of your family and friends in the historic King’s Head Inn, as 19th-century wait staff attend to your party. This is a very popular annual event and some seatings sell out quickly. We suggest that you make your reservations early starting August 14, 2017.
