    Newman's is a gem! We love to come to the Orchard Inn and soak in the ambience of this "country cottage". The star of the show is the food though. Each of the four courses was excellent - superb flavors and combinations. We were impressed with the plate presentations, balance of the dishes and succulent flavors. Our only disappointment was our server - she did not have a good pace to the evening and she was consistently forgetful and "running behind schedule". Hopefully this issue will be fixed by the next time we return. We will be back.

    This was our first time at Newmans and it exceeded our expectations. The Sunday brunch was amazing and prepared to perfection. The beautiful view overlooking the mountains, the soothing soft music, and superb service and hospitality made for a most memorable and enjoyable gourmet experience. We will indeed return for special occasions.

    Wondered if chef was there…. Pasta dish no flavor,risotto way too salty, lobster cold and undercooked and unseasoned, cheese dessert inedible… old and dry and apple not apricot.Too much purée…whatever happened to real vegetables. Very much overpriced. Lamb decent but almost cold, beef good. Nice atmosphere and nice server.

    My husband and I had brunch at Newman’s was a wonderful experience. Especially for our anniversary and birthdays! Watching the birds outside eating was so relaxing. He had oysters, shrimp and grits, and a cheese platter for dessert. He really enjoyed each course. I had a butternut squash ginger soup, duck with farro and Swiss chard, and a very interesting s’more for dessert. Everything was creatively presented. Additionally, we started with a goat cheese amuse bouche and a cheese jalapeño biscuit with an onion jam. Our server was so pleasant as well. Cannot wait to go back for dinner!

    Our third evening at Newman's. My wife made a special request to have her Birthday dinner. Everyone was attentive, our server was knowledgeable and polite, cocktails were great. The fixed menu presented interesting options for an exceptional dining experience. Now, I have to express my dissatisfaction... portions were small and our food came out barely warm. Quality food is to be served hot from the kitchen, then when you order lamb chops med. rare and they are sent back to the kitchen to heat up, they come back over cooked. When we expressed our concerns the staff was attentive but offered only sorry then free coffee. We continued our dissatisfaction and presented them with what would make us feel better. They agreed. This is a great restaurant I just hope they improve and attempt to educate their staff on providing an exceptional experience for their clients.

    Newmans Restaurant at the Orchard Inn has been a favorite for years, and it keeps getting better. The addition of the Terrace a couple of years back makes a great difference and is our favorite place to dine. The Prix Fixe menu has been a staple but the flavors coming out of the kitchen in recent years have really improved. We love New England Country Inns and this is as close to that as we've found in this area. The setting, the views, the service, the hospitality, and the food are all exceptional. It's about a 45 minute drive for us, but worth every minute. Sometimes we have simply stayed over at the Inn to make it a truly special treat.

    Newman's at the Orchard Inn is a favorite of ours. The feel is of a New England Country Inn - and Inn with an exceptional restaurant. The ambience, the views, the dining areas, the service and the food are all exceptional. This is a family run Inn and it's been a joy to get to know them over the years. The dinner menu is a four-course Pre Fixe menu and every time we go, the flavors just get better and better. We hope to return soon and often as it's a one-of-a-kind in our area.
