The first time Meredith and I stayed at the Inn at Perry Cabin, we arrived late in the evening, tired from a day of driving, and settled on The Purser’s Pub out of sheer convenience and laziness… it was only just down the hall from our room. The next two dinners, we just couldn’t help ourselves from coming back for more of its great food, drinks, and ambiance.
Recently featured as one of Garden & Gun’s “50 Best Southern Bars”, the classic charm from the hardwood floors, central fireplace, and Chesapeake decor makes the pub feel more like a club than a traditional bar and restaurant. Cozy tables of friends and couples, catching up over oysters and cocktails, an outdoor patio for drinks under the stars, and a menu that greatly distances itself from traditional pub-food, are just a few of the things that kept us coming back again and again. Meredith would be upset with me if I didn’t recommend the brick chicken, and I can personally attest to the buffalo burger, but having missed out on the fresh oysters on multiple occasions due to their popularity, you can bet that next time we’ll get there earlier and just make it a long evening.
