The Mixer Tavern is a historic tavern, now a private residence, at 14 Westford Road in Ashford, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a side gable roof and center chimney. It is set at the northeast corner of Pompey Hollow Road and United States Route 44, and faces Pompey Hollow Road behind a thick screen of trees. Additions extend the size an additional two bays to the west, and also to the rear. The oldest portions of the building are traditionally dated to 1710, when John Mixer purchased the property (then 100 acres (40 ha), now just 13), and applied for a license to operate a tavern. In addition to well-preserved vernacular 18th-century architecture (including a significant number of interior features), it is the only known tavern to operate in what is now Ashford for many years. It underwent a significant restoration effort in the 1920s.
The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
