The bar area was very cozy and sleek. I had dinner in the dining room and the food was outstanding. Rolls were hot and served with whipped butter. I really liked the small plates and local fare, it's basically a smaller portion then a regular entree's. Menu selections are minimal, but fitting for any palette. The food came out piping hot, we ordered a cheese tray for an appetizer, the cheese was delicious with a large portion, and was served with honey, nuts and fruit. A definite winner for a small plate or appetizer. Overall, it was an amazing dinner, great food, service and ambiance. I would highly recommend it for any affair casual or not. Very nice dining experience.

Nice place to have our anniversary dinner, and as a result dessert was on the house complete with “Happy Anniversary “ beautifully written in chocolate on our dessert plates! (Thank you!). When it comes to the menu I’m not as adventurous as some...but we both thought our selections were delicious. Our server and support staff were plenty busy yet still took very good care of us throughout the meal. I imagine a fair amount of the patrons were guests at the inn but we are fortunate to live in the area and enjoy celebrating special occasions there. Same time next year :)

For special occasions my husband and I like to go back to where we got married

We were greeted with an historic, country atmosphere that had a fun ambience going for it. The staff we met were friendly and courteous and they seated us right on time. The menu was extensive with plenty of choices we liked. The seating was ample and lighting was bright enough to read the menu, but dim enough to set a romantic mood. Our appetizers were delivered promptly and they kept our water glasses filled without being a bother. I had a perfectly glazed Filet Mignon and my wife enjoyed a Teriyaki Salmon dish with Basmati rice that she had no problem devouring. The portions were large enough that we didn't have room for dessert. Overall we had a great time and will plan to return again very soon.

Good Food- but beware those with cat allergies.
Enjoyed the food and service. The rabbit legs were a great different entree. Not a fan of the basement setting, but ok.

My biggest complaint was presence of cat dander. There are a couple of cats on the premises. As someone with sensitive cat allergies, the restaurant and the common areas of the Inn could have used better vacuuming (thankfully the rooms were pretty free of cat dander).

Lovely experience weekend before Valentine's Day. Started with a drink in the pub, and the dinner at the restaurant. The historic tavern provides a cozy ambiance. Delicious homemade breads, very nice wine list. Interesting choices - duck, rabbit, veal, as well as seafood and beef. Husband loved the duck confit. I had a delicious scallop dish with pureed corn and quinoa. Baked pear and ice cream for dessert!

As usual everything was excellent. One recommendation would be to have more options on “seasonal menu”, specials for the week, month, etc.
