A word from Tewksbury Inn
Oldwick is in the heart of the Hunterdon County horse country, and the Tewksbury Inn is at the center of this 18th-century historic district. The Inn is a former stagecoach stop where the 21st-century traveler can enjoy the traditional friendly tavern atmosphere with fine food that reflects wide ranging influences. In 2008 the Tewksbury Inn began opening on Mondays for the first time and those who join us have been in for a real treat: Our entire wine list at half price. Our exquisite food deserves pairing with an equally great wine and at this value, we think you will agree.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "as always a very quiet sunday afternoon....enjoyed the ambiance, people and food ...usually hit the tewks 4 times a year"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "My Mother In Law loves this restaurant. We went for lunch on a Sunday. The food is excellent. Service is very good. We love the classic feel of the old home. There was an issue with flies buzzing around. The front door swings open and closed and they must have been coming in through the front door. So we were swatting at them all through the meal. We will definitely go back."

  • "Since we are new to town, this was our first visit to the Tewksbury Inn. We had dinner on a Friday night, and everything was superb. We enjoyed great seafood, wine and very friendly service (the host and owner both personally made sure that we were enjoying our dining experience). We will definitely go back."

  • "The chef wasnt very accommodating to my wife's dietary needs. They weren't even that difficult, to make everything plain (no sauce or what have you) No need for follow-up, I learned the reason there"

  • "We've been to the Tewksbury Inn several times and it does not disappoint. The food is delicious - I had the lobster appetizer and the Mahi Mahi main course and my fiance had the calamari and the filet mignon main course and we were very pleased! Another highlight from the night is that they carried our FAVORITE summer beer, it's called "come hell or high watermelon," which was awesome. We've never seen this beer at any restaurant and have only been able to buy it at whole foods. The atmosphere is incredibly romantic, quaint, and special, and we can't wait to go back!"

  • "I returned to the Tewksbury Inn for a birthday celebration after not having been there in over a year. Some old favorites were still on the menu as well as some new selections. Food was excellent, service was very good, and it was an overall enjoyable experience. Even parking was not bad. In the past I sometimes had to park in a nearby lot."

  • "A delightful restaurant! A very special gem - much loved. Great bar;lovely dining room; nice outdoor patio; excellent service."

  • "Great restaurant with the perfect setting and fantastic food. Their chefs salad is one of the best, served with a slice of toasted garlic bread; nice touch. Their main courses are put together nicely, but I would suggest a "king" and "queen" size for some of the meals, namely the hangar steak which is a way too little portion for a big man's appetite."

  • "The lunch menu had great variety and all of our meals were fabulous! If you are in a hurry, be sure to tell the server, as our lunch took a while to come. But it was great to dine outside and we were not in a hurry. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We will definitely go back....for lunch or dinner."

  • "another great meal at TI. food was fantastic, wine is half price on monday's, so an additional bonus. everyone remarked how much they loved their dishes; grilled salmon, braise lamb shank, salads, etc. fantastic."

  • "On Friday night I thought it would be a great idea to unwind at a restaurant that offered great food and outdoor dining. The only place I could think of to fit the bill was the Tewkesbury Inn. We were not disappointed. Stacey our serve, was friendly and professional, and our dinners were delightful. The weather that night was gorgeous so it was a perfect evening."

  • "Had lunch with a few friends and it was great. We usually go here for lunch and I always seem to enjoy it. There are always specials and sometimes those choices are good and other times just ok. They make a great burger. "

  • "I wanted something quiet and romantic and the Tewks certainly didn't let me down! The Filet Mignon over Risotta was expecially good. I wish I had saved room for dessert. Next time!"

  • "The area and Inn takes you back in time. The tavern area was vibrant for a Wednesday evening. We ate in the dining area which is much quieter. Maybe because it wasn't a busy night. My wife enjoyed her starter salad and my bowl of mussels were tender and tasty. The main course of Cod was fresh and a good choice for fish lovers. I decided on the hanger steak and was delightfully surprised. The presentation gets an A and the food an A+. The steak was perfectly prepared, mash potatoes whipped nicely and asparagus grilled along with a delicious sauce. If you are looking for a little out of the way restaurant in the Jersey countryside which still has an 18th century feel to it, stop by the Tewksbury Inn."

  • "My wife & I dined at Tewksbury Inn on Sat. May 10. Having read many glowing reviews, I was looking forward to something special. We started with mixed greens & Boston Bibb salads, which were finely presented & very tasty. The waitress DID ask how our salads were. However, my spouse's filet mignon, which was ordered 'medium', was actually cooked 'well done'. She said it was tasty, but she was disappointed there was *no hint* of pink color. I was very disappointed in my stuffed veal top round. About 25% of it was *raw*. The parts that were cooked were actually done very nicely. The stuffed items- goat cheese, asparagus, roasted red peppers -were delicious. But about 25% of the veal, raw? The waitress NEVER asked how our entrees were. :("

  • "staff was pleasant and helpful. Have small children and one has peanut allergies. They were understanding and accomodating. great soup. Enjoy the sandwiches and salads. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I can always rely on the food here being delicious. I usually get my favorites - Mixed green salad and Bistro Chicken. In fact, this is probably the only place I order chicken, its that good. My husband usually experiments a bit more and everything he orders is great. I would give the place 5 stars but for 2 reasons. They could change up the menu just a little; I think its been the same for at least 15 years. And the décor, while classic, is getting a little tired looking."

  • "I was there in the outdoor cafe during the summer and it was delightful and the food was good. We came back for Easter dinner and the dining room was charming and food delicious. "

  • "This was our first visit to Tewksbury Inn. The food was very good to excellent, and they have an extensive wine list. We enjoyed a very nice Pinot Noir. We ate in the dining room (not the bar), which is better suited to conversation. Our server was helpful and responsive at first, then seemed to disappear for a while. I think they might have been a little short on wait staff that night. Tables are on the small side - if you have a party of four you really have just enough room for your plate and glasses - no more. All in all, we enjoyed ourselves and will likely be back."

  • "My wife and I stopped at the Tewskbury Inn on our way home from a weekend get away. Stopped at the bar for a drink. Wife had a Dark & Stormy. Great selection of beer on tap. The staff was very friendly. The bar was crowded on a Sunday evening. Except for the obnoxious guy that sent his oysters back after he ate them and then tried to get them for free, all was cool. There is one in every crowd. Sat in the front window for dinner which was great. The food was an 11 out of 10! Had the Yellow Fin Tuna that was fantastic! My wife was very happy with the scallops. Good wine list. Highly recommend!"

  • "attentive service but not overbearing. very good food but not outstanding. great place in the neighborhood for lunch or brunch."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "I can not say enough about the quality of the food at the Tewksbury Inn. The yellow fin tuna is, without a doubt, the best I, along with my dining companions, have found anywhere. We eat at some very high end restaurants and this ranks at the top of our list of "must return often!""

  • "We decided to try the Pluckemin Inn for dinner with friends on a Friday night, since the location was mutually convenient. The atmosphere was quaint and cozy yet upscale, with an interesting menu, full bar, and good wine list. Overall, our party's reviews of our meals ranged from good to very good, but drink service to our table in the dining room was a bit slow (the bar side of the restaurant was very busy and lively for most of our meal), and the table itself was a bit small and crowded for a party of four; much shuffling of tableware was required with the serving of every drink or course. In our experience, execution didn't quite seem to measure up to reputation and cost."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Enjoyed everything about the evening. Food was outstanding, service was impeccable and the atmosphere was romantic. I ordered the cod which was absolutely cooked to perfection, my company had a the seared scallops, which were just as tasty."

  • "I have taken business associates to the Tewkesbury Inn and been very pleased with all aspects of the meal. This time we took four young granddaughters (7 - 13) to dinner and were very pleased with the attentiveness of the staff, the welcome we received and the attentiveness to the children. I would recommend the the Tewkes for a variety of occasions."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The Tewksbury inn is one of our go-to places for a nice meal out. We've been there 10-12 times, and the food is consistently good. Appetizers and entrees are creative without being overly experimental. The bar makes a nice cocktail and does the classics well. The wine list is fairly priced, with a good range of prices represented; you can get a nice bottle of wine without breaking the bank, but they have some nice choices for special occasions. There's better variety on the list than most places; nice to see more than 3 options for a Zin. It's a fairly small place, and the noise level can get a bit robust when the place is full (the bar more so than the dining room). Weeknights the dining room is fairly quiet; weekends are less so."

  • "Although we had not been back in over a decade, it was still great! Oysters and dirty martini's for appetizers and the menu was better than before"
