Came here for lunch in mid November 2014 after a good experience April the previous year. Ordered the duck cassoulet. I am not sure who made up this dish but the beans weren't well cooked or rich Overall it was very tomatoey with beans that had not soaked up the cooking liquids. Duck was aso very lean, not braised long... More

Good time for a casual visit, good cider and, on summer Sunday nights, excellent pizza. Rcommend for comfortable friends and family occasions. Normal fair will surprise you with its finer tastes

We shared two 4-course, vegetarian, "Whisky Jack" dinners. The two salads, pasta dishes, entrees and desserts were delicious and well-presented. The service was professional, friendly, and courteous. The setting is beautiful (apple orchard and cidery) and the decor is informal but attractive. The Whisky Jack dinners included a taste of their 2007 whisky. It was surprisingly excellent--so much so that... More

A delightful place, but the restaurant is sub-par. We ordered two pasta dishes, one sablefish and one duck dish. We were served in less than fifteen minutes, enough time to reheat, but certainly not enough time to properly cook these dishes. The sablefish was excellent, the pasta bland. The duck dish was a cassoulet with canelli beans and Italian saususage... More

Great place to visit! The owners are so friendly and welcoming it makes a perfect afternoon out! Beautiful little shop where you can buy their products and a fantastic setting for a wedding or big party!

We've eaten here twice now. I love their cider. So, I thought their restaurant would be just as delightful. Nope. The service can be amazingly slow. The food is hit or miss, depending on the visit. Also, you just never know when they're going to be open (or closed to the public for a wedding or other event).

The title about sums up our experience. The server never came back to check our meals, refresh our drinks, nothing! The food was way, way overpriced for what we received. You can get a better meal pretty much anywhere for about half the price. We were overcharged on our drinks and they would not accept that they were wrong. It... More

This past Friday our company had their Christmas Party at Merridale. We arrived to beautifully decorated surroundings, music playing christmas lights,it looked wonderful. We were seated outside on the balcony that was enclosed with plexiglass and had overhead heaters. The heaters were working in our area but unfortunately most of our fellow staff members froze to death. The lighting was... More

There really isn't a bad time to visit this wonderful orchard and cidery The beautiful trees, laden with apples in the fall and blossoms in the spring, come alive with twinkling lights in the winter. The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is lovely.
