We have been coming to the Waynesville Inn for thirty years. The dining experience this year in the Cork and Cleaver was one of our most memorable because of the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. I had a good number of our20+ guests tell me they felt the food this year surpassed the quality of previous years. We were served various items on the menu, and by all indications that I received the food was excellent. The servers were pleasant and very helpful, but the service was slow. Part of that is that our group all arrived at the same time and had not pre-ordered except on Sunday evening..
My only complaint, and it is not serious as the staff took care of the problem, was the fact that our reservation for Sunday evening in the Tap Room downstairs had not been communicated to the Reservation Book. We were not on the book until I happened to mention it to our Sunday lunch server who checked and found no record of our having made a reservation. However, the staff rallied around when we took early orders for the Sunday evening meal, and delivered the order to the kitchen where our meals were delivered in a timely manner.
