Hungry? We've got it covered!

GCV&M has a variety of food and beverage locations on the premises. The Depot Restaurant & Freight House Pub, which are part of our 1849 railroad complex, are located right along the Great Meadow. The Pavilion Garden Restaurant is located in the Historic Village, across from the Hyde House.

The Depot Restaurant is open 10:00am-4:00pm Tuesdays-Sundays. Enjoy a casual meal with a variety of sandwiches, fresh salads, cookies and beverages — including a refreshing glass of one of the museum’s ice-cold ales! We also serve hand-scooped ice cream Monday-Friday. Indoor seating and outdoor picnic tables available. Click here to view the Depot's menu.

During any of our Special Events, stop next door at the Freight House Pub, where you can enjoy a delicious hand-scooped Perry's ice cream cone, cup or sundae 11:00am-4:00pm. Or, stop in and purchase one of the museum’s very own 19th-century inspired ales, wine or hard cider. 

The Pavilion Garden Restaurant is open during the summer months 12:00pm-3:00pm on Thursdays & Fridays (ice cream, drinks & snacks), and 11:00am-3:30pm on Saturdays & Sundays (full menu). Take a peaceful rest while strolling through the village to enjoy hand-scooped Perry's ice cream, ice cold beverages and light fare in an outdoor setting. Open until 4:00pm for Special Events.

D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery

D.B. Munger & Co. Confectionery

No place emits that warm, nostalgic feeling better than an old-fashioned confectionery with its colorful jars, bottles and trays of sweet delicacies.

Such a location is now found in the Historic Village at D.B. Munger & Co.

Part exhibit, part true confectionery with fancy treats or savory hand pies for purchase, the Historic Village opened its confectionery in June 2014.

D.B. Munger & Co. is now doing business in the old Physician's Office next to the Altay Store.

Visit on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays to purchase freshly baked authentic or historically inspired delights such as Chelsea buns, fruit tarts, elderberry or other seasonal fruit hand pies, or the ever-popular rosewater currant cakes, sugar tea cakes and maple cakes (cookies).  On event weekends only, try our famous Steak & Ale or other savory hand pies.  They are perfect for a quick lunch on the go.

A number of the bottles on exhibit are replicas of those found in several mid-1800s shipwrecks more than a century after the vessels went down. In some cases, the food was still edible!
