We stayed at the English Inn for our 30th anniversary and dined there as well. It was a leisurely meal that lasted 2 hours but that was fine for our needs. I especially appreciated that they had several gluten free dessert options since I'm intolerant. I did feel a bit pinched for gf meal options only because of what I was in the mood for, but there were ample gf meal options available. Overall a very lovely evening....good food and beautiful surroundings with rich wood paneling and decorative ceiling. Wish we had gotten there a few minutes earlier so we could have sat close to the wood burning fireplace but we had a cozy corner table for two that was also very nice.

I miss the gardens. View of the banquet hall did nothing for the ambience

Our party of four was seated near the fireplace in the dining room closest to the entrance. Elegantly decorated, peaceful and quite, which is such a rate treat to find in resturants today.

The pacing of the courses was perfect, the service was quite good - non intrusive.

Food: The prime rib was generously sized and flavorful, the roast duck was dry and crunchy- way overcooked. The beautiful shrimp cocktail appetizer had large shrimp and a very distinct, spicy hot sauce. The other food items were fairly good and served warm.

Great service and meal was excellent! The menu offered many choices . Our reservations were early but it does get busy during prime mealtime?

Celebrating an anniversary. I requested seating in the main dining room but it was not honored until i insisted on it. My meat was ordered medium-well and it was medium. Otherwise, our evening was lovely.

We found out about the live pianist they hire for the Fridays and Saturdays leading up to Christmas in December and have now made this an annual tradition. The value is fantastic, service and atmosphere are exquisite. We split an appetizer, both ordered entrees and separate desserts and it was all wonderful. The pianist, decorations and fire in the fireplace make this such a romantic location for the holidays. For a night cap, the pub downstairs is open until 10 p.m.

We met friends here for lunch and probably overstayed our visit but no one tried to hurry us. The food and the service was great. The Very tasteful Christmas decorations made it a very festive experience. Would definitely recommend to my friends.
