Simonds Tavern is an historic tavern building on 331 Bedford Street in Lexington, Massachusetts. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, eight bays wide, with two front entrances and asymmetrically placed chimneys. The first portion of the building was built c. 1794 by Joshua Simonds, who also ran a tavern near Fiske Hill. He began operating a tavern at this site in 1802, and enlarged the building 1810 after Bedford Street was cut through the area. The building's interior has well-preserved Federal details.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.[1] It is now residences.
