Brunch is standard fare but lots of it

The best part of this brunch is the omelette station. So many items to put in an omelette! There's also a salad bar and some fish and meat dishes. There's also lox and bagels but the bagels weren't fresh. They were small freezer types. The desserts were ok. Brunch price was $21.95.

We were hoping to go for lunch or dinner, but they only serve Sunday brunch, so we couldn't go! (Around $22)

Went to the Sunday morning brunch. Large selection of delicious and delectable foods. A must-do when you are going to the Old Village or are staying at the Old Sturbridge Inn & Reeder Family Lodges.

We have been to the Sunday Brunch here several times. The first time that we went the food and service were very good. However, on subsequent visits the service has gotten worse. You get your own food but a waitress brings you your drinks. The wait to get those drinks has gotten longer. It can take 20 minutes to get... More

They were very nice and the village is wonderful. The staff are very nice and helpful in planning, preparing and special events to include my wife and my wedding. Sunday brunches are very nice. Food is well prepared, hot, abundant, and presented well.

This is a beautiful place for a wedding. The staff were on top of all aspects of providing good service. Lots of space for guests to mingle. The hot turkey dinner was a really good choice for dinner, especially on a cold February evening.
