The Publick House Inn has history oozing out of every corner. I was warned not to stay in the lodge and requested a room in the Inn. It had a four poster bed and a flat screen TV - a nod to combining the old with the new. the room would have been a bit small for two people but... More

I wish I had had the $45 coupon for the night in the Lodge from the reviewer who said "good value" as we would have felt much better about our stay. While the original inn and tavern are lovely historic buildings, the lodge is in sore need of remodeling, new plumbing, fixtures and hot water would have been nice. However... More

My husband & I stayed here for a weekend get away. This place has outstanding customer service from the front desk to the bakery. Everyone was extremely easy to talk to and welcoming. The rooms were very clean and stocked up on everything. The main restaurant has a nice menu selection and service was great. This was our second time... More

We went for my wife's birthday. She choose the tavern for her birthday dinner. We have gone several times in the past. This time was not horrible. I am giving this a poor rating because of the service. My wife and I ordered french onion soup. The tall, old, blond watress went on and on about how the soup was... More

I stayed in the Lodge, using a walk-in rate coupon for $45. Could tell the room had been updated somewhat recently. The king bed was terrific; better than many I've stayed in in pricey hotels. All the other room amenities were good, as was the size of the room. Plus, a good dog-friendly property. Plenty of room for walking. Bathroom... More

I stayed here recently for a wedding that was being held in the main building. I stayed in one of the lodge rooms located in the back of the property. The wedding venue itself located in one of the large dining rooms in the main building. It was beautifully decorated and had a great holiday feel to it. The staff... More

After a very disappointing stay at a local hotel, we found ourselves at the Public House for a Sunday breakfast. The entrance in the rear opens your eyes to a on site bakery which by any standard is nothing short of great. Moving upstairs we were greeted by smiles and welcomes to be seated in the dining area for breakfast.... More

Went here for Christmas Day. Lovely. Great food. Great service and a classic New England setting. Probably the best Clam Chowder we've had - and we are picky. This is exactly what you'd hope for in a Sturbridge experience. Lovely, especially at the holidays. Try it.

We booked the Publick House because we wanted to visit Old Sturbridge Village just a few miles down the road. The Publick House itself was packed with people and there were several events going on. The restaurants were all full. This was the Columbus Day weekend so that may have been why there were such crowds. Our reservation was actually... More
