The historic Smithfield Inn Restaurant and Tavern was built in 1752 and has been a staple of Smithfield dining ever since it was converted to an Inn and Tavern in 1759 serving customers going from Richmond and Norfolk. The recently renovated Inn is the premier fine dining location in Smithfield.  If you are looking for something a little more casual, try The William Rand Tavern for lunch or cocktails and dinner after work.
