The Peck Tavern is a historic tavern (now a private residence) at 1 Sill Lane (on the east side, just north of its junction with Boston Post Road) in Old Lyme, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, with a side-gable roof, wooden clapboard siding, and a large wing extending to the rear. The main (south-facing) facade is five bays wide, with the center bay consisting of a two-story gable-topped projecting section. The main entry is in this section, flanked by fluted pilasters and topped by a transom window. The building's construction date is unknown, but is believed to date to the first half of the 18th century, and may incorporate elements of a 17th-century structure. The main block probably achieved its present form about 1769, when the property was purchased by John Peck. The property was used as a tavern into the early 19th century.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 12, 1982.[1]
