We had three meals here the weekend we stayed at the inn. Each one was wonderful. We had 2 breakfasts and one dinner. The wait staff was attentive and polite.

I don't know what they were doing on the night we went, but such service staff as they had were occupied elsewhere. We had to choose our own table and then wait for at least half an hour to get our orders taken and the same wait again to get our meals. Although the manager was well aware of our... More

Was in with family midweek and had a lovely meal. Summer cocktail St Germaine was lovely and refreshing and went perfectly with our meal. Crab spring roll and short rib starter particular stand outs. Portions were good sized also. Would recommend if your in the area it's a lovely village and the ferry is great to watch from the clam... More

WOW! My husband and I had stayed at the Robert Morris Inn many years ago, so when we were in nearby Easton for a wedding, we eagerly returned to the Inn again for dinner. We were expecting a lovely seafood meal in an historic inn, but we were amazed to enjoy a totally fantastic meal from an exceptional Chef, Mark... More

My husband and I had lunch at the Robert Morris Inn today. Our waitress, Mary was most attentive! The kitchen seemed to be backed up because there were so many people, but she made our experience memorable. Her brother Ben also brought us our drinks from the bar. We were really treated like royalty!

The crab roll was great. Generous portions of crab on a buttered roll...comes with homemade slaw and old bay chips. The salads were excellent as was the chicken salad.Lovely setting near the Belvieu Oxford Ferry.

Thank you for your kind words and for sharing with fellow travelers. When the weather is cooperating there is no better place to enjoy lunch but on our porch overlooking the bustling river. Its a very relaxing and ever changing landscape. Regards Mark & Ian More
