Cobb's Tavern is a historic colonial tavern building at 41 Bay Road in Sharon, Massachusetts. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame building, with brick end walls, a central chimney, and a pair of chimneys near the left wall. A single-story porch extends across the building's rightmost five bays. The original part of the house was built c. 1740, and is known to have served as a tavern for most of the 19th century. It also housed the East Sharon Post Office between 1817 and 1895.[2] It is now a private residence.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
