Concierge.com's insider take:

Evidently, the powers that be decreed four full-on taverns with a large "Bill of Fayre" to be overkill, so Shields has become a coffeehouse instead. While lamenting the demotion of the magnificently cranky host, James Shields—a scenery-chewing part that allowed actors large portions of ham—one has to admit this is useful (and besides, Shields still makes an appearance). During the day, you sit down with assorted interpretive staff over a beverage and chicken salad or a cheese plate and slice of pie. At dusk, the place drops the genteel act and turns into something closer to its original calling. You can have an aperitif or digestif or dine light on Welsh rarebit, pasties, and pâté.

Open daily 8:30 am to 5 pm.
