Yes. However the brunch line was too long because diners were not allowed to handle plates. Each server went down the line with you at every table making it very slow. Also extremely loud. The servers had trouble hearing me. It was very expensive and too noisy.

Brunch at The Roycroft Inn was fabulous. Food was delicious and service was fantastic. Even with the pandemic the buffet was set up perfectly with the servers putting the food on our plates behind plexiglass barriers. The variety of desserts were also delicious.

Mother’s Day brunch was wonderful. Food was delicious. Staff was lovely. However there was no string quartet playing - and - children 11 and older are full price.

It was the Mother’s Day brunch, so not sure if that is a gauge of how good the food is compared to ordering off the menu and being prepared fresh. Great town and the campus is worth the trip alone.

Food was excellent. Beer (Big Ditch Hayburner, canned on Aug 1, 2020) was old and was noticeably un-fresh.

Will definitely return as the Roycoft is an amazing space. Probably won't buy beer in a can unless I can verify freshness.

Our experience at the Roycroft Inn was so enjoyable!! We felt completely at ease and not rushed. Our waitress Maryann was perfect - attentive to our needs, made great suggestions, allowed us to feel completely comfortable having several courses and sit at our table in front of the fireplace for close to 3 hours. I loved not feeling rushed like someone else might be waiting for our table. The food was outstanding. Everything was so delicious! Great atmosphere, great service, great food! I would highly recommend.

When arrived with reservation hostess attempted to seat us at table near steps to porch and very windy table. Requested another table and she appeared annoyed and told a 20 minute wait. After being seated we had a wonderful server and enjoyable lunch. Overall a good experience-have stayed and dined many times at the Roycroft.

A beautiful old inn in historic East Aurora. The food is absolutely spot on and the service is excellent. Dine inside or out and the atmosphere is classic either way.

Was quiet because we had dinner at 5:30. When we were leaving everything got louder- even the music over the sound system. Food was tasty. A little over priced but would go again.

We always look forward to every meal at the Roycroft as we are never disappointed. This time was no exception.
We had a relaxing glass of wine in the lounge in front of the fireplace before being seated.
The food was as delicious as always.
I started with my favorite, the shrimp and lobster bisque and my husband had his favorite French Onion.
We both had the lamb as it is always cooked to perfection at the Roycroft.
Whipped potatoes and vegetables were perfect.
The accompanying cheese bread was wonderful.
We shared a bottle of a delicious Merlot and took the remaining wine to the lounge to relax before heading home.
Gwen was our server and she is the sweetest! We had a staycation package for my husbands birthday in January and she served us our meals in our beautiful room so we were happy to have her again. She is delightful!
We will return as The Roycroft is my favorite ❤️
I wish they were serving Mother's Day dinner as I am not a brunch person.

The buffet brunch offered a wide variety of both breakfast and lunch entrees. Lot of protein and veggies for those watching their waistline and some fabulous desserts for those who want to indulge. Everything was COVID compliant and felt safe, but the atmosphere was still relaxing. The staff was great about accommodating our 10 month old granddaughter, who also loved the food.
