One of the oldest tavern in gin Oh. Renovated this year, interior like it's always been, like stepping back in time, great selection of food, good selection of bottle and draft beer. Right in the heart of downtown Yello Springs

On a recent trip to Yellow Springs, Ohio, my husband and I were seeking a late night pint--not quite ready to retire to our quant motel room up the road. We had seen the sign for The Trail Tavern, and decided it looked promising. We...More

We had a great lunch on a cold day. Ye Old Trail Tavern has a lot of character, good service, and great food.
