COVID-19 Update

The Dobbin House continues to be OPEN DAILY and is serving food and cocktails outdoors under 2 large tents (which are very popular) on the Dobbin House Courtyard and, due to the governor's latest mandate, has very limited seating inside the Dobbin House (Rev. Dobbin did not think about social distancing when he built his 1776 home!)

Our "Springhouse Tavern Diners Choice Menu" with your favorite Tavern dishes is being served in the Springhouse Tavern, our outdoor Courtyard, and our Abigail Adams Ballroom daily from 11:30am to 9:00pm. We do not take reservations for these areas, it is first-come, first-served.

The "Alexander Dobbin Dining Rooms Diners Choice Menu" with our most popular dining room dinners is being served daily from 5:00pm to 9:00pm in the original 1776 stone house and on our outdoor Courtyard.  We do accept reservations for the Alexander Dobbin Dining Rooms but all walk-ins are welcome.

A full array of cocktails, wine and beer is available in all areas.  

OPEN DAILY 11:30am - 9:00pm.
Please note: A mask is required inside the Dobbin House Tavern at all times when not at your table. 

The Country Curiosity Store is also OPEN DAILY from 11:00am - 9:00pm and is limited in occupancy as required by the State.  Use of hand sanitizer, located at the doors, is encouraged.  The Gettystown Inn Bed and Breakfast is also OPEN DAILY and taking reservations. 

As always, the safety and well-being of our Dobbin House guests, staff and community is of top priority. All our tables are at least 6' apart and all staff wear masks.  We are continuing to take all necessary measures to use best practices in deep cleaning our locations with disinfectants and are following the protocols set by the CDC, the Pennsylvania Department of Health and local officials.

As the current crisis unfolds, we will continually evaluate the situation. Any update or change will be posted to this page. Call the Dobbin House (717-334-2100) for questions or concerns.

The Dobbin House remains open and serving our devoted guests every day.  We are fortunate to have the room to accommodate the new state restrictions and will continue to provide our guests with the quality food and service you have come to expect from us.  The entire Dobbin House "family" thank you for your continued patience, cooperation and support!
