The premises looked a little run-down as we approached , and the inside was certainly "period" though not as nicely done as the B&B we'd left to go there. We were faced with a set menu with little choice in a not very well-occupied dining room. Only saw one person (our server) when there. Flavour of "Marie Celeste". Would not... More

This Dining room is part of the B&B, it is a lovely old heritage home. The food was excellent. We had the pork tenderloin with home made rhubarb chutney. What a great combination.

We weren't sure what to expect but.. What an unbelievable surprise! The food was amazing, best we had in Nfld. The server was prompt, attentive, and... More

We stayed at Sophia's Heritage Inn, not knowing about the amazing food that was offered. Our dinner was a 3 course set meal, salad, salmon and dessert. It was excellent and the service was superb. The main restaurant was full the night we were there, but Jennifer offered to serve dinner to us in the upstairs foyer. We had a... More
