We love coming here. It's beautiful inside and out. It's the former estate of an auto motel and brings you back to a more gracious, opulent time...In the summer we like to walk the grounds before being seated, in winter, visit the interior. The staff is always warm and welcoming. We were here recently for dinner to celebrate a special... More

So proud we can offer visitors such a great experience in our small town. Always a treat. Lunch is quite reasonable and the Sunday evening suppers are great values. Also offers overnight accommodations in lovely rooms.

Dining at the English Inn is always a special experience. I recently took my wife to celebrate her birthday and we had a blast. Since we were staying at the Inn, we took time after check-in to wander around the beautiful grounds and gardens and enjoyed a drink in the Pub before changing for dinner. Always make sure to make...

The English Inn is a very nice, refined place for dinner. The dining room has hardwood paneling, molded plaster ceiling, a piano playing at just the right volume, and terrific service. We started with appetizers of salmon bruschetta and a bowl of gazpacho, both delicious. The dinner salad was mixed greens and a house vinaigrette. We had a trio of... More

We have enjoyed the English Inn for many years. Each visit is special. The ambiance will give you a feel of life of the the auto barons of the early 20th century. This is really the only fine dining experience in the greater Lansing area. The chef always has a new treat in store! I have also entertained business clients... More

My father and I both love great food in great places. He planned a trip to The English Inn as a surprise during my Father's Day visit this week. He had not yet been there, and was a bit trepidatious, but we found it delightful. The building is elegantly old English and the rooms are appointed as one would expect... More
