Since welcoming its first guests in 1773, The Red Lion Inn has earned a reputation for outstanding food and genuine country hospitality. Those traditions are continued today by Executive Chef Brian J. Alberg, whose kitchen features contemporary cuisine that is rooted in the region's history and harvests. Emphasizing the use of fresh, local ingredients and a huge proponent of buying locally and sustaining the region, Chef Alberg regularly updates the Inn's menus to reflect the bounty of each season. Guests choose from the elegant Main Dining Room, the cozy Widow Bingham's Tavern, the casual Lion's Den pub, or, in warmer months, the flower-filled Courtyard. The wine list offers 450+ selections, and has received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for ten consecutive years; Sommelier Dan Thomas helps pair wines with meals. *The Inn accepts reservations for the Main Dining Room only.

According to tradition, some of the Inn's first guests were colonial Yankees who met here in 1773 to defy King George III-with revolutionary results. Today, our fully equipped meeting rooms continue to provide quiet, distraction-free settings and modern amenities for companies, associations and non-profit groups with their own important agendas. Paired with exceptional service, renowned dining, and convenient access from the Northeast's major metropolitan areas, The Red Lion Inn offers an exceptional and refreshing choice for meetings, conferences and retreats.

We had a delightful lunch in the main dining room, seated by the window. So glad we made a reservation as it was crowded on a Friday. Food was spectacular except for the apple pie, the crust was rubbery. We both loved the butternut squash soup. Soup with a sandwich for one and a delicious salad with salmon for the other on a cold day was perfect. Service was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the Christmas decorations inside the dining room and outside our window. The food is expensive, the ambiance is lovely.

The Sunday brunches are just outstanding in selection and quality of food. Holiday brunches are especially grand. Highly recommended.

The food was very delicious, with a very good size portion. I had the hamburger and really enjoyed it. Some of the best New England clam chowder I have ever had

Got snowed out for out Christmas day plans, and decided to try Red Lion Inn the next day. It was very festive and really right for what we were looking for. The server we had was very good ad made us feel really welcome. The menu had good choices and both of us really liked what we ordered. It was the perfect spot for a Christmas lunch. Will definitely remember and come again.

They were very accommodating when we needed to change our Christmas Eve dinner from 2 to 4 people. We ended up in a private dining room. The food was great, our server fantastic and we had an overall great experience.

The menu and food are simply classic earlier American fare. There is no attempt to concoct a "different" take on standard recipes, which is refreshing nowadays. Service is excellent and relatively fast. Ambiance is outstanding, even though Christmas Eve day was very crowded. My wife and I love the Red Lion Inn and come here at least once a year (over an hour drive). It is the epitome of good food prepared well and served well in a historic and well-maintained inn. I might also mention that the turkey dinner never disappoints.
