Food was outstanding. Great brunch selections. Excellent Bloody Mary. Flounder sandwich and sticky toffee pudding were amazing. Ken the bartender and waiter at The Tap Room was professional and friendly. Absolutely the best.

Excellent ambiance for a Friday afternoon lunch outside. Could use a few more plant-based options on the menu, which they apparently are already working on.

Great Saturday afternoon lunch in pub room. Menu brunchy with a few additions. Country Pate, Fish and (no) Chips and Burger yummy. Decadent desserts and French press coffee too. Server a little green, could anticipate needs better.

After looking forward to our experience at the Tap Room all week, we were stunned at the poor quality of service. Our waiter abandoned us (we were later told he went home), and it took 45 minutes for anyone else to approach our table. Extremely disappointing.

This was not my first visit, but it was the first time I have visited since they were acquired by the new owner and since the inn and restaurant were renovated. The place was not busy at all, probably due to the Coronavirus shutdown, but service was very slow and inattentive. The food was good but not exceptional and not worth the excessive cost. Note that I had no problem with the cost the last time I was there. I don’t mind paying for quality. But the service and food were definitely not worth the price.

We understand, the limitations that the virus places on spaces, the main dining room felt a little stark. The food was very good, even though, the choices were very limited.
Our server, Cory, was delightful. Very pleasant, informative, and polite.

Count on $100 per person for a badly cooked and badly presented - diner-style - burger.
Astronomical prices for worse food than ever. Auberge better make some fast changes. During our meal here, there was a wine sales rep loudly touting his bottles at the bar. Maybe handle business during off hours and let people endure this over-rated joint in relative peace?

I appreciate good food and pay attention to everything when I dine out. It out first time at The Mayflower Tap Room.
The wall at our table was dirty, it was drafty, the tables were worn and the chairs were dirty with food...

I had a Vodka and soda which was watered down.
Our Salmon was too rare and too over priced for a “Pub setting”

We won’t return. I wish you well and hope you will pay attention to these comments. I don’t like to write negative comments, but this time it was necessary.

Thank you,
G. Laviero

We had a very nice Christmas Eve meal at the Mayflower. We felt bad for the servers, as they seemed to be short-staffed. No one waited on us for the first half-hour. No bread, etc. I usually don’t complain, but at these prices...

The Mayflower is a beautiful inn surrounded by a lush landscape. As you enter you feel the elegance of the place. We first sat at the bar and unfortunately we waited almost 15-20 minutes for the barman to even acknowledge us. There was only one other couple sitting at the bar but he was working on preparing drinks for the main dining room. There should have been another bartender or at least acknowledge our presence, apologize for the wait and give us a wine list to peruse while we wait. Big faux pas for this place. We were then seated in the taproom which has a fireplace and was very cozy. There was also live piano music which we very much appreciated. However, the food was terrible. The duck must have been cooked from frozen and was tasteless and difficult to cut through. The wine list was shockingly plain and uncreative. It was a list of wines that I could get at my local wine store. My suggestions would be to choose wines that are uncommon and perhaps even unheard of. Overall, I was disappointed. This is not the place for a foodie or a wine connoisseur.

Overall a good experience. The food was good using fresh ingredients and healthy preparation approach. The service was slow. It took quite some time for our food to be delivered. The service team was professional and welcoming although at times it was difficult to get their attention.

The food and service at The Tap Room for dinner was impeccable. Our waiter Kevin was kind, attentive, and extremely personable. He made the evening special, answered any/all of our questions, shared recommendations with us, and even brought out a candle and complementary dessert for my mom's 60th birthday without me even having to ask. Kevin is a huge reason why we had such a wonderful evening and meal here, we were not rushed, the food was excellent, and ambiance sitting outside under the stars was beautiful. They even provided blankets for us since it became a little chilly outside after sunset.

We are NYers with a weekend home nearby and had tried (and sworn never to return to) the main dining room in the past but had never tried the Tap Room. While much happier with the ambiance of the Tap Room, and satisfied with the food, the service level is still nowhere up to par with the price. Seems like they need more waitstaff to take orders and bus tables, and less management standing around looking concerned. Could also invest in some training - the hostess could not answer even basic questions about the resort. Overall experience was ok enough - wine quality and selection, and live pianist were the big highlights. We’ll be back but not too often.

The beauty and elegance of the Mayflower setting is worth the trip for lunch or dinner. The Taproom is one of my favorite places for casual, old fashion, clubby dining. An easy menu in a beautiful bar sets the stage for an enjoyable experience. The best thing you’ll eat is not even on the menu… It’s the Parmesan bagel chips! The food is very nice: hamburgers, fresh fish, salads, etc. I’d suggest purchasing a bottle of wine rather than by the glass... you’ll spend less and drink more.! Dining at the Mayflower is not so much about the food as it is about the ambience . There are few places that are prettier than this lovely hotel and spa.
