10 Year Anniversary

We love coming back to the Lord Jeff (and now 30 Boltwood Walk) for our anniversaries and sitting in the room we once had filled with our family and friends. Last night marked our 10th anniversary at the Lord Jeff and it certainly felt like a celebration. We wanted the night to be special and the... read more

Kudos to Amherst College for funding a much needed renovation of the Lord Jeff and its restaurant. I had previously known this as the tired and stuffy Boltwood Tavern -- the dreaded host of awkward lunches with my economics professor. But the new 30Boltwood is so vastly improved that it's hardly recognizable. Food was quite good on two recent dinner... More

I don't leave comments of trip advisor often but felt obligated to share my experience here this weekend. Service was quick and efficient but rude condescending and stuck up. I have never felt more uncomfortable in a restaurant in my life. If they only knew what I did for a living. Save your $ go somewhere else

Party of 6 for a celebration on Saturday night. Bad service and poor food. This is supposed to be such a nice restaurant but we weren't treated well. Before ordering the flat iron steak, I asked our server what medium was considered here because I did not want purple meat. She assured me the medium would be pink and not... More

The Jeffrey Amherst Inn's restaurant "30 Boltwood" sponsors periodic afternoon "teas" for those who have the time and money to spend an afternoon munching English-style cakes and sandwiches. Unfortunately they don't get it right. The room was cluttered with used plates and cups, service was slow and begrudging, and the prices were quite high. Given the inn's pleasant interior and...

After reading reviews, my family and I decided to dine for Lunch! I expected good, but I got GREAT! Best lunch we've had in Western MA for sure! Lisa, our server was wonderful!

After reading reviews and planning on what for us is a "high end" event, I'd like to think that I walk in with a neutral viewpoint to build on, but of course that's not true. One expects 5 stars when booking a reservation for dinner at a higher end restaurant, so I was a little concerned when the experience started.... More

appetizer poor quality, delivered after main course, menu did not accurately describe the food, had to return frozen chocolate souffle which had no trace of chocolate. The servers made no attempt to compensate for the mistakes in service, and showed little knowledge of the menu items.

So true, if you have not had the opportunity to visit The Lord Jeffery Inn or 30Boltwood since our full renovation in 2012, you are in for a big surprise.
