Let's tell you a bit about the history of Moore's Tavern. The establishment dates back to 1787. According to Moore's website the tavern dates back to the Revolutionary war times, when the owner of the property Moses Mount, an aide to General George Washington, returned after the war to Freehold to open a tavern at this property he owned. Official records indicate Moses began this establishment in 1787, although it could possibly have been earlier....but there are no records to indicate an exact earlier date. Regardless this makes Moore's about 234 years old.

Just think of all the travelers and local residents through the centuries that have visited this establishment. Many arriving on horseback until modern times, right here in Freehold. The history is rich and when you go for a pint or a meal you are dining amidst the centuries of patrons who have stepped into Moore's.
