We’ve eaten here three times in the last 10 years and each time was wonderful. It’s a unique experience as the dining rooms are lit only by candle light. The food is absolutely exquisite. It’s a prefix menu with three courses with additional canapés included. Wait staffs excellent too. One of our visits was during the holidays in December, for our anniversary, and it was snowing. That one was unbeatable but, can’t wait to dine there again.

The hotel is old and cool to see. We stayed 2 nights and my back is screaming never again in that worn out bed. The hotel is very well kept and clean. The bathrooms are super clean and modern for a very old hotel. We had a great porch to relax but that bed must be replaced. The restaurant had fabulous food. They have a super cool old and charming bar too. Great location in the Berkshires.

We made a dinner reservation and asked if they had a room for one night which they did, score! So the rooms here are very period correct, creaky/slanted floors, but this building has been a Inn of some sort for 270 years! The dinning rooms are almost fully lite by candle light, another charming part of the Inn. The prix fixe menu has choices at all three course's and two amuse's come out as well. The current chef is doing a beautiful job the food was flavorful, creative and hot, with proper time between course's it made for a unrushed two hour dinner. You could spend the whole night just reading the wine list, lot's of choices, must be quite a cellar as some bottles were up too $3700 yikes! Eating here is not cheap and the restaurant is far ahead of the Inn. If your looking for a treat or special occasion this would be a great choice! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did !

We stayed at the Inn (2 nights), in a private room, neighboring building, with jacuzzi during May 2021. Staying at the Inn is not an inexpensive experience, we paid maybe $400 per night including taxes, etc. For sure, the room was authentic to an era gone by, and has appeal simply because of that, and because of that we overlooked a few things that we were surprised were missing ... but appreciated some things that had been added too. The little envelope with face masks and sanitizer, for example. We felt that given the remote location and the fact that the Inn has no 'breakfast service', rooms should have a coffee machine, and at least bottled water, maybe a small fridge. Small things, but missing none the less. One must drive for breakfast to a store 1 3/4 miles away (we walked the first morning, and drove the 2nd) - breakfast at the store IS complimentary when you mention you are staying at the Inn. The pool was not open, but given that it can still be chilly in May, this was expected. The room did contain a fireplace, but we were not to use it because if the room is too warm, the smoke will be sucked into the room and not up the chimney. Point taken, I have had an open fire in several houses, and understand. Meredith checked us in and answered our questions, made suggestions and directed us to the breakfast location for the next morning. We enjoyed a quiet cocktail after checking in, and another just prior to our dinner reservation at the Inn's bar. Chris, the bartender, was very friendly. He knew the area, and can make a KILLER cocktail. We enjoyed sitting at the bar. Really very good. Our dinner was really exceptional. Our server was super helpful - I WISH I could remember his name, it was unusual, maybe beginning with an 'L'? Courses were perfectly paced, bread was freshly made that day and amazing. All told, a very good experience, not rushed - appropriately timed and with the elegance of a classy establishment. The following day we did not dine at the Inn, but went over for pre-dinner cocktails. It was quite a different experience. I walked towards the bar, to be greeted by a younger blonde-haired woman. She was clearly immediately irritated by my presence. Her demeanor and manner was not friendly. I indicated that my husband and I were going to enjoy a cocktail at the bar as we had the previous evening. She literally said 'No, you cannot' right to my face. I was quite shocked. I explained that we had done so the previous evening, which we had enjoyed. She didn't seem to want to even listen. She indicated that it was far too close to the bartender and that it wasn't allowed. (The bar seats 4 and was not occupied). She very coldly told me that I could order and sit 'outside'. Outside where there are no other people, and where we look like naughty children lol! Honestly. I was shocked at being talked to like this. I was quite upset. I am an adult, staying at the Inn (not sure she actually knew that as she didn't ask). It is not necessary to address me so callously, dismiss me instantly and make no attempt to conceal distain for my presence. Oh my goodness! Not even one attempt to say something like 'I'm so sorry, we are busy this evening and your enquiry caught me off guard' ... nope, nothing. And so we sat outside with our cocktails. Should I add that Chris, the fabulous bar tender, had no idea of this rule. He seemed embarrassed. It was clear that diners nearby heard this entire interaction. It was humiliating. Again >> I am not a child !!!! I told him I would not argue with her because I didn't want to get him in trouble. I do understand that there are rules to be followed. However, we were just wanting to do what we had done the previous evening. >>> This singularly ruined my experience. The Restaurant food was very good, and has appropriate reviews. HINT: Book well in advance. There was a service fee added to our bill. It was fairly significant. Since our room was not cleaned while we stayed (no added toiletries, no bottled water, no coffee machine, etc as mentioned above ... also, although there were flowers in our room and in the common areas in the building we were staying in, they were dead), and since we dined and tipped our waitperson and bar tender separately, and breakfast was at a store almost 2 miles away ... I'm not entirely sure it's appropriate to add a 'service fee' ??? Takes a lot to get me to write a review these days, and I do absolutely want to say that the restaurant and unique type of accommodation was certainly appealing. But I feel overall, you can't do a few things well and then ride that wave over the things you fail at.

We had a truly amazing dinner at the inn, the candlelight ambiance was very beautiful and cozy. I was afraid it would be too dark since I need my reading glasses even when it’s light out but it was just perfect and reading this menu was a delight since choices were very appealing. We were welcomed with two complementary amuse bouche bites, both wonderful (the pate with the jam was out of this world) i had the mushroom soup. This was my favorite course, followed by the sea bass with lentils and I believe was a cauliflower puree. All desserts were good . We would come back for dinner again. We were staying at a house rental in Colebrook and the drive back and forth was very easy .

Candlelight dinner, 5 stars, the Chef & Proprietor is a top chef. The staff led by Host, James and wait staff are the very best. Dinner here is a wonderful experience, it is expensive but you actually get what you pay for & well worth it. Perfect for special occasions, very romantic setting but be great for friends & family as well. We had the Halibut & being form the Coast of Maine, it is rare for me to get seafood so far inland, Peter's ability to prepare food ranks with the very best & was a five star dinner. We were there for dinner so really can not answer the Hotel questions but seems nice.

This historic inn has delicious food. Do not book here if you have any physical difficulties. Unfortunately we did not have a good experience due to their mistake. I called at least a week in advance and made a reservation for a king on the first floor. I gave them my credit card number. This was to celebrate my husband's birthday.My husband had just had knee surgery and could not do stairs. When we arrived we were told we did NOT have that reservation, even though I made the reservation with some man over the phone and explicitly explained the necessity of the first floor room.I We were then asked if we could take a room on the second floor. No we could not. We were told the downstairs room was not ready yet. It should take about 40 minutes and to wait in the common room. Meredith came flying out of the adjacent house walked up to the front door and slammed it. We waited almost an hour and a half. When I finally knocked on the door and complained that we had been waiting a long time. Meredith told me this was our fault, we did not have a reservation and stop persecuting her or words to that effect. Dinner was great. The waiter was great. Then in the a.m. when she printed out the statement I was shocked to see that the bill was $200 more than the $385. We had some drinks but not $200 worth. When I asked her about it, she tried to explain and I was confused so she finally said "Do you want me to get the bill? You clearly don't believe me." I was absolutely shocked at her rudeness. This is not the way to treat customers. We never will go again or recommend it, because of Meredith's rudeness. Also very unsafe walking up to the Thayer house. Boulders for steps and no railing. And the Inn steps are so steep it was a challenge walking up to the front door. Definitely not for older or physically compromised people. Or those used to being treated nicely.

The title of this review says it all. I was berated and frankly bullied by the owners of the restaurant during my sister-in-law's birthday dinner because of a reservation mishap on their end. When I confronted them privately to explain we felt mistreated, they scoffed... SCOFFED! I am a local to the Berkshires and have eaten at this restaurant for many years, a special occasion staple in my family. Not anymore. I will NEVER step foot in this place and will urge my family and friends to follow suit. You are wasting your money here.

Response from Peter Platt, Owner at The Old Inn On The Green
Responded Oct 28, 2020
Beware of the angry, spiteful post that tries to masquerade as a "review". The title hardly says it all. Where are the details? The specifics relating to what actually happened are conspicuously missing for a reason. They don't support the writer's vague accounting. This "review" is deliberately misleading and a complete work of fiction; giving the impression that they actually had dinner with us that night, when the truth is that they never even sat down. Most people are aware of and understand the adversity restaurants have been facing during the Covid 19 pandemic. One of the biggest challenges has been that our seating capacity is extremely limited. Because of distancing requirements, there are only 6 tables inside where guests can be seated. They are available on a first come, first served basis. The rest of our seating is under a heated tent with sides. There are 3 forced hot air heaters that heat air from outside and distribute it inside the tent via 3 large vents. This also creates excellent ventilation and air exchange. This reservation was made on 10/16 by Zoe, (the sister in law referred to above) for the following evening, Saturday, 10/17 for 5 people at 8:30 pm. We had been turning away reservations requests for days, but had recently taken a cancellation which allowed us to accommodate this party. When they arrived, two couples in their 30's and Zoe's father, and were shown to a table under the tent, the father immediately objected to the location of the table and said that they had requested a table inside. I apologized and explained that the tables inside were limited in number and that they were all currently occupied. I then offered them another table under the tent that was right by a heater. They were unwilling to even consider it. Two people from the party did all the talking, Zoe and her father. The other three people, including Hannah the author of this "review", remained silently behind them presumably waiting for a resolution. As occasionally happens with some people who don't immediately get what they want, these two began to get ugly, as though it was personal. As if I really did have a table inside but just wouldn't give it to them. As if bullying and berating me would get them what they wanted. They kept insisting that they had booked an inside table. I kept repeating that I was sorry for any mistake that was made but an inside table at that moment did not exist. The only thing I could do was to offer them another nice table by a heater that was ready and waiting. The father was angrily telling me how long he had been coming to our restaurant and saying that he had spent a lot of money in the past. While telling me that his daughter used to work for us, Zoe, in an effort to go over my head, asked to speak to someone else whom she presumed to be a manger. I pointed out that I was an owner and she could speak with me. She only continued to repeat that she wanted an inside table. I was baffled. They said they had come to celebrate a birthday and it was already late on a very busy foliage weekend in the Berkshires. Instead of being so willfully unreasonable, why not just sit down and enjoy the evening you came to have? Far from being able to accept a solution, they decided to walk out on their reservation. Unfortunately, it did not end there. About 10 minutes later, amidst a crowd of people waiting to be seated, a young woman with a male companion appeared at the door. I did not recognize her at first. She asked if she could speak to me privately. I expected she wanted to tell me it was her partner's birthday or an anniversary or something, not exactly. This was Hannah from the party that had just walked out. She came back to restaurant to tell me that she didn't think I had been "sorry enough" and that I had ruined Zoe's birthday. She launched into a tirade attacking me personally and went down the list of bullying points made earlier by Zoe's father, how long they had been coming to the restaurant, how Zoe used to work for us, how much money they had spent, etc., etc., etc. All the while, the young man by her side and the people waiting in the hallway stood speechless. In my decades long experience in the hospitality business, I have seen a lot. But this encounter was among the most out of line, over the top pathetic and entitled that I have ever been subjected to. I reiterated my apologies once again and explained that I had other guests waiting and I could not continue with a circular conversation. I excused myself and she left. Little did we know at the time, that she (Hannah) had already booked another table for 5 people online for the following night, only this time under her name. The next day, Zoe called to cancel that second reservation and she also wanted to tell us that they were never coming back. Before hanging up, she nastily added, "you know how it works in the Berkshires...it's all about word of mouth". Lo and behold, on Monday this vengeful post appeared on TripAdvisor. Seriously? Get a perspective. How arrogant and deluded do you have to be to think that you can behave the way these people did, OVER A TABLE, and then think you would EVER be welcomed back? During this strange and difficult time, are there not more important things to be upset about? Points of Fact: 1. We were fully booked with over 100 people for dinner that night and had been turning away new reservations for days. By definition, the 6 inside tables had already been reserved when Zoe called to book the day before. It is highly unlikely that she was promised an inside table the day before, when without question, none existed. 2. Zoe worked for us so long ago and so briefly, that neither of us recognized or remembered each other. Although she is a local, no one kept in touch with her and no one could remember the last time she or her father had come for dinner. 3. We have an online booking system which allows us to see the dining history of any guest going back almost 14 years. For all the bluster about how many times they've come and how much money they've spent, their name appears over the course of 14 years, exactly 3 times in our system. Like most business owners, we want all of our guests to be happy and have the best experience possible. However, some people simply cannot be pleased and make that impossible. It's always very disappointing to us. At the end of the day, it's not about how many times or how much money. It's about your behavior and the way you treat people. Sadly, Zoe not only did an expert job at ruining her own birthday, but also made it impossible to ever return. Believe me, when people like this stop coming to the restaurant, nobody misses them.
