The Jenkins Inn and Restaurant of Barre, MA is billed as a Bed & Breakfast. As such one finds here a perfectly inviting nook in which to hide away if, in fact, one lives nearby and means to do just that, hide away, or if one has returned to the neighborhood to visit friends and relatives and cherishes a bit...

Went with my BFF for a long evening of chit chat. quiet thursday night so we were as leisurely as possible - and as always, Jenkins seemed like we were the only ones there. There were other patrons - but not a lot - but they treated us like we were the only ones in the place. The appetizer special... More

No disrespect to the town of Barre, but this restaurant is a hidden gem. Small place but all the details are attended to. The decor is great for either special occasion or "just because." This place is no longer a secret so make reservations in advance. The meal opens with lemon hot towels and crackers with to-die-for spread with orange... More

Ok - so Barre is near nothing! Friends brought us here for dinner and we loved it. Great gardens. Great decor. Great food. The menu is both traditional and exotic (kangaroo anyone? Maybe next time if it's still on the specials). This is small and intimate dining. Start off with a warm lemon towel to clean your hands and sit... More

We live just 10 minutes from the Jenkins inn but had never eaten here; we were able to get a discount through Restaurant.com. The restaurant is one room with perhaps 10 tables. It is beautiful; the ambiance could not be better. Fresh flowers on the table, soft music, romantic decor. They have an extensive wine list and specialty drinks. We... More

Dave & Joe were great comfortable hosts. The Inn was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Their hospitality was like being in their home (we were). We dined with a party of 8. The food was fabulous, from the pork to the salmon to the trout and chicken. The salads were fresh and others said the desserts and lobster bisque were... More
