Fáilte Romhaibh a Chairde – Welcome Friends

William’s Irish Tavern welcomes you like an old friend. Everyday we greet and serve our friends and neighbors in Washington, NJ just like our namesake did years ago. Colonel William McCullough opened the very first tavern in Washington Borough, New Jersey in 1811. Colonel McCullough built his tavern to build his community; through the sharing of food and drink many great ideas and great friendships were born. With numerous popular and craft beer choices and a menu full of traditional pub favorites, so on continues the tradition of great food, great drink and great friends at William’s Irish Tavern today. Cheers!
