According to one of its advertisements, the Blue and Gray Tavern, operated by H.M. Dorsley, operated approximately 1/2 miles north of Toms Brook Virginia. Its signature dish appears to have been Virginia Barbecue. The catch line on their printed material stated:
"Thirsty?-Cold Drinks, Beer
Hungry? - Good Eats
Sleepy? Soft Beds"
Almost nothing else is known about this business but it most likely operated during the 1920s or 1930s.
