For many years my wife and I have gone to supper at the English Inn to honor special occasions. It has never let us down. What a fine place for a romantic evening. Soft lighting, live piano playing (but not too loud) and a lovely fire in the fireplace during the cooler months. Make a reservation. Ask to view the... More

Stopped in for a drink while visiting the area. We LOVED the bar at this English Inn. The bar was small, intimate, great leather and oak surroundings. Terrific bartender. Will definitely visit the restaurant in the future.

We had dinner here twice this visit, and it was superb. The Lobster Bisque and the Chateaubriand for two were particularly memorable. I can't wait to return. Wish I didn't live in California!
