Really enjoy having dinner in The Pub. Their Fish & Chips are terrific as are their other bar menu options. Unfortunately their bar drink prices are too high. Service is always wonderful.

We enjoyed every minute. It's unusual that a bed and breakfast has such a fine dining restaurant. A pianist played perfectly appropriate songs as we progressed through a splendid dinner. Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. Prior to dinner we also had tea time in the Pub. The owner was present and happy to provide a history of the property.... More

When my husband called to make reservations for Valentine's Day he also mentioned that it was our anniversary and asked for a more private table in a nook or corner. The restraunt assured us that was possible. Upon arriving we were led to a table smack in the middle of a very crowded dining room. The tables were so smashed... More

This restaurant is definitely one of my favorites. It is one for special occasions. I love the Filet Mignon! Top notch service. They have a very extensive wine menu. The dining experience is accompanied by the sounds of a grand piano that is played during dinner service.

We went to dinner on a Monday night. Way too dark for my elderly mother. We couldn't see the menu's, much less the food when it arrived. I was extremely disappointed in my "Trio of Filet Mignon", as I could not even cut through them with a steak knife. Service was adequate, at best. Maybe Monday is a bad night... More

My family and I went to the English Inn for dinner last night. It was the first time for all of us. I have to say it was an amazing and beautiful place to enjoy a nice quiet dinner. The Christmas tree and decorations were beautiful as well as the whole place. The food was delicious! They had the best... More

For many years my wife and I have gone to supper at the English Inn to honor special occasions. It has never let us down. What a fine place for a romantic evening. Soft lighting, live piano playing (but not too loud) and a lovely fire in the fireplace during the cooler months. Make a reservation. Ask to view the... More

Stopped in for a drink while visiting the area. We LOVED the bar at this English Inn. The bar was small, intimate, great leather and oak surroundings. Terrific bartender. Will definitely visit the restaurant in the future.
