Salem Cross Inn DROVER'S ROAST

Drover’s Roast 2017   

Salem Cross Inn

FESTIVITIES begin at 1:00pm
FEASTING begins at 2:30pm

Join us for our popular Drover's Roast outdoor dining event, where we prepare a 1700's American trailside feast recalling the days of John Pynchon, the colonies' first cattle drover.  Experience our version of the Drover's Roast as we prepare the feast as you watch; hand rubbed prime ribs of beef with an age old recipe of spices are slowly roasted for hours over a huge fire pit; fritters are made by hand and cooked; chowder of the sea is slow-cooked in cast iron cauldrons over open fires.

These are just the beginning of an endless feast (eight tables long!) including other seasonal entrées and a large variety of hot and cold vegetable dishes. After your feast it's time to enjoy an assortment of delightful baked goods and fresh. home baked shortcake or pies topped with real whipped cream.

As if the feasting weren't enough, there are festivities you can enjoy throughout the day; enjoy horse drawn wagon rides, music and other live entertainment, demonstrations by period crafts people, a Cow Puncher Drink, and more! 

Our Drover’s Roast is so nice that we have it twice! Get your tickets today for our Fall Drover’s Roast on Sunday, September 10th.…/din…/historic-drovers-roast/
