The People

TimJimTemp

Owners: Tim Adams and Jim Welch
Fun fact: The restaurant was named by combining their two first names!

Both Tim and Jim have over 40 years of experience – each – in the restaurant/hospitality industry. They met while working for a corporate chain of restaurants in the 1970s, traveling across the country opening and managing restaurants. When the company was sold to a national conglomerate they decided it was time to become small business owners with their own restaurant.

In 1979 they purchased Cooke's Tavern in Plainville. The name was changed to J. Timothy’s Taverne in 1988.

In Loving Memory

John Huwe

John had worked with Jim and Tim before they bought the restaurant in 1979. He moved to Connecticut in 1980 to become Executive Chef/Kitchen Manager. In the early, lean days, John helped keep the restaurant open with financial assistance. For 37 years, John imbued J. Timothy's with love, kindness, and...jokes. Everyone remembers his jokes! John shared a special warmth and bond with both our staff and guests. John passed in February of 2017. He is profoundly missed every day.

Love you Johnny.
