Eat • Drink • Gather


Ideal Tavern, convenient to Central Connecticut, is a gastronomic refuge that offers elevated versions of classic comfort foods in a casually modern, sophisticated, and rustic setting.
Our restaurant’s interior features upcycled barn wood  and industrial metal interior touches pay homage to our namesake, Ideal Forging, the venerable manufacturing company that had been a local community fixture.

"There are many great things to brag about at this gastropub; gluten-free food & beer options, ecclectical yet bougee ambiance coupled to the re-emerging Center Street (of Downtown Southington,) and reservable tables should have the hungriest of Boomers & Millennials alike, busting down the doors for scrumptious happy hour selections and spontaneous date nights!"
