Location & Hours

Complete your Roanoke Island experience by enjoying the food, beer, and spirits of the British Isles right here where it all began. 

Lost Colony Tavern is located at the corner of Queen Elizabeth Avenue and Sir Walter Raleigh Street at the very center of Manteo's bustling downtown waterfront.

The Nag & Doe

Through April, we will offer our full menu of British & Irish favorites every day from 12-4 p.m. and then transition to a scaled-back menu of classic British “chip shop” classics from 4-8 p.m. featuring our most popular dishes, including all of our fan-favorite seafood baskets featuring only 100% fresh outer banks seafood.

We know such a change deserves branding to reflect the revised evening menu, so each day at 4:00 Lost Colony Tavern will become THE NAG & DOE. This name conveys the feel of a classic English pub while honoring two of our most famous local legends: The Nag’s Head and The White Doe.

While we realize that some guests may be disappointed that our burgers, sandwiches, pies, and other tavern specialties will only be available during lunch hours through April, we hope you will understand that we made this concession as a way to remain open seven days a week, every week of the year.

Manteo Restaurant

Four centuries after the Roanoke Colony went missing, Roanoke Island's first authentic British tavern was established in 2022 to honor the English history of Roanoke Island by serving the traditional dishes of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales along with Outer Banks favorites made with fresh local seafood.

At Lost Colony Tavern, we're bringing the flavors of the Old World to the Outer Banks with British-style beers, traditional British Isles dishes, and a Signature Cocktails program centered around Irish Whiskeys, Scotch Whiskeys, and London Dry Gins.

Lost Colony Tavern

In addition to our British dishes, we also offer a selection of dishes featuring fresh local seafood exclusively sourced from Roanoke Island waters: Pamlico Sound Blue Crab picked and cleaned in neighboring Hyde County along with Greentail Shrimp and a rotating daily selection of indigenous fish from the Port of Wanchese on the south side of Roanoke Island.

From the British Isles to the Barrier Islands

Dine inside the tavern or outside under shady umbrellas in our British-style beer garden. Let us transport you "across the pond" with our beer, food and cocktails!
