A wonderful old home converted into restaurant, pub & overnight lodging. Great food in a casual setting or fancy dinner.

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

Traveling one hour to eat for special occasions at the English Inn has always been a delight. We have stayed in the B&B as well. This last time we met for a special b-day party. The staff was excellent and the management check on our table. We had a special b-day cake made and it was very good. One criticism... More

We had drinks downstairs in the pub, before retiring to the dining room upstairs. Wonderful atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, yummy Sunday Dinner. Deserts were wayyyyyy too good! This is also a B & B with beautiful English Gardens and wonderfully appointed rooms. Area attractions include a local winery.

Here's a restaurant that makes for special memories. From a warm greeting at the door, to the knowledgeable and attentive wait staff, all the pieces are in place for a great evening. We skipped the appetizer course, figuring that the desserts would be worth waiting for, and oh my were they ever! However the meal has to come first, and... More
