About the restaurant
Dining at The Old Inn on the Green is an extraordinary experience: fine wine, great food, attentive, knowledgeable service and the dining rooms illuminated only by candle light. Chef and Owner Peter Platt, along with his team, work to create innovative and memorable meals that are an event unto themselves. Currently, we are offering a $79 prix fixe menu with 5-6 choices per course every night we are open. The hours for dinner are Wednesday through Sunday 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm for both indoors and in an all new screened outdoor room. The wine list is graced with an array of thoughtfully selected estate bottled wines from France, California, Italy and around the world. In addition to candlelight, in the colder months there are wood burning fireplaces in each room. A copy of our current menu can be found on the home page of our website www.oldinn.com.

What an absolutely fabulous dining experience. The food combinations were surprising and delicious! Who would have thought that roasted corn ice cream would be to die for? First went to the Herb Lyceum about 20 or more years ago when the original chef - Gilson son, Will Gilson, was just a teenager with a gift for preparing phenomenal meals for his guests. The charm then, and now, although Will has moved on to be the owner of several restaurants now, was the chefs joining you for each course, explaining the pairings, etc. A truly delightful evening!!! And the cost is incredibly low considering the incredible quality of he meal! Even my Big Apple guest who has access to some of the finest restaurants in the world in NYC was blown away! Simply love this place!!! Can't recommend it highly enough!

Overall was great! The service was exceptional. The only short fall was the chicken karaage, the chicken was a little burnt and not fresh. (Same goes to the chicken in chicken udon) other than that Chashu is my favourite go to in Worcester!
