We have had 2 meals at the Sherwood Inn and both have okay. The food is average. The location is great. The restaurant was very warm. My husband liked the pot roast, but the grilled zucchini wasn’t as good as I expected.

Love the place, good food, great service and great for elderly people. There is a small elevator to take elderly people to the restaurant level.

This is a charming old Inn with a lively bar and nice restaurant. We had dinner here and I started with the onion soup which was very good. This was followed by a veal dish, I think it was a special, but it was also...More
