We arrived very early, so the place was fairly empty. Food was good, and reasonably priced. A good business dinner

Visiting Andover for a reunion and breakfasted there two mornings. Excellent choices and attentive, friendly service. Newly remodeled, yet totally in "sync" with the great Phillips Academy that is all around the Inn. Highly recommended.

Very much enjoyed the dinner, comfortable seating for small or large groups. Could just sit and stay awhile. Starters, clam chowder very tasty. Chicken pie, baked cod and short rib Risotto- very good. For desserts try a creme brule or a warming Samuels Irish whiskey....More

Several nice rooms for dining in this Inn. A cozy feeling with white tablecloths and big windows. Large bar and good selection of wines.

Great meal, even better service. Enjoyed the bar first, then the dining room. Staff was extremely professional and attentive. Would have been even better if catch of the day had actually not gotten away. But great experience. Absolutely will return and take clients next time.
