Although the Lord Jeffrey feels like an antique Inn, it was built in 1926. One of the living rooms is my favorite in that the fireplace not only has a window in it, but can accommodate a good sized log -- as in one 6 or 8 feet long! My first time back since the massive remodeling and all is... More

To honor an outgoing, hard working Board officer, we held an appreciation dinner at this lovely restaurant, located in the Lord Jeffery Inn in Amherst, MA. We were seated as a private group in their greenhouse room. Green plants high above us, white paint and simple, almost Asian aesthetics made for a relaxed but elegant setting. The food was delicious... More

My colleagues and I have been breakfasting at 30 Boltwood for the past few years, so we have plenty of evidence that the breakfast is the best you can get. The food is excellent; each of us always orders the New England Breakfast, which is consistently perfect - gives us energy for the day. Perhaps even more important than the... More

The food was so great. We ordered 3 small plates & dessert. The salad was simply fresh. Squashes with quinoa & pine nuts perfect. Lamb was perfect. Just enough of everything, enjoying ever little bit! The service was the best ever in Amherst. Perfectly timed, up beat & relaxed. That's an art. The art of hosting a nurturing meal! Well... More

The food is terrific here as is the service. Care and attention are given to each meal and the servers are well trained and attentive. Cocktails are delicious and wine menu should satisfy even the more discerning of tastes. The steaks are particularly good but there is something for everyone. (Breakfast is great!)

We had a lovely dinner at 30Boltwood--a restaurant attachment to the Jeffery Inn in the heart of downtown Amherst. The drinks menu was extensive and well-crafted. The meal courses feature produce from local farms (an ever-growing movement in the state of MA) and the quality and taste was superb. The only downside to an otherwise delicious dinner was a rambunctious... More

Here I am on my own on yet another Friday night. The bar at 30Boltwood is inviting and quiet. I ordered a drink and selected two appetizers for my meal. Dos Tacos was quite nice: a petite soft corn tortilla with crispy edges filled with pulled pork, cabbage and carrot slaw, sweet pickled jalapeños slices topped with avocado wedges. The... More

We stayed at the Lord Jeffrey Inn and got to breakfast 3 times, dinner 1 time. Breakfast was as good as it gets, hot coffee, fresh juice, perfectly cooked eggs and accoutrements and, the best french toast around. Dinner -- not so much. The menu was complicated with each dish having ingredients that were unapproachable and not known. It made... More

We were here to celebrate the graduation of our son from college. Our party enjoyed cocktails on the patio (fantastic) then were seated at our table for dinner. We ordered a couple of appetizers including the mussels and the quail. Both were very good. That is where the evening turned disappointing. There were seven diners in our party. Two of... More
