“Beautifully Restored Mansion with Excellent Food”
Reviewed 4 October 2010

This restaurant and bar is a short walking distance from the Whistling Swan Inn located in Stanhope. There are several eating areas including an enclosed porch and dining rooms. In addition there is a separate bar which has early evening happy hours. The entire building and landscape have been restored to its past glory.
Both the dinner and service were excellent and prices were reasonable. I had the sauteed salmon special with and artichokes and pirogies. My wife decided to eat "light" and had a sandwich large enough to take home half for lunch the next day.
A large parking lot is available behind the restaurant. When in the Stanhope area, I recommend that you eat here. Dress is casual.

“Relaxed atmosphere; great view from patio; decent food.”
Reviewed 31 August 2010

Some of the food is very creative, like unusually flavored pierogies and a wonderful gazpacho soup with perfect spicing. The prices are a bit high, but the atmosphere is unique for the area--an old brick house from the 1830s. I would recommend sticking with the appetizers and desserts, since they are overall more interesting and exciting than the main dishes.
