“Feel like 'the other half' for a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Took my nephew and his date for Easter dinner yesterday. You may need to save up but if you want to be treated to wonderful food and once-in-a-lifetime service it will be worth it. The barn dining room has windows overlooking a stunning display of spring flowers. The four course meal is really seven with all the extra treats. Each course is a work of art for both the eyes and palate. The oyster and the scallop appetizers = best ever. The lobster entree and beef wellington entree were sublime. Service is like none I've ever experienced. Even the pianist was fabulous. If you can take your aperitif in the fireplaced drawing room. Being in a wheelchair I was chagrined to find the Inn not accessible (easily) but men in white dinner coats took care of that! Be sure to dress up as it is expected and why not, you can wear your jeans anytime. I look forward to going back.

“When you want to feel special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

The four course meal included many little extras from the kitchen so we were able to appreciate the range of the chef's skill. It was a truly memorable experience. In addition, the service was perfect without being stuffy. We will be returning for the multi-course tasting menu with eager anticipation and the knowledge that another fine dining evening awaits.

“Everything Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have visited this wonderful enchanting restaurant on 3 occasions. Each time the ambiance, service and food have been truly spectacular. It's definitely a "bucket list experience" and "worth the splurge" as one reviewer stated. Best of all, it is very elegant without being pretentious. This entire experience is art at it's very finest.

“Classy, elegant and worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

What to go to a restaurant, B&B that is a 5 Mobil star?

The White Barn in is the place. Old world elegance,
absolutely great food. Not inexpensive, but then either
is a Mercedes Benz. Absolutely fabulous place to
celebrate life or any other event. One of the best places
in New England.

Appropriate dress required. Coat and tie for the men is
needed, but it is worth it!!!
