Came to the spa with my daughter for her birthday. When booking treatments, the reservation specialist recommended the day package which essentially provided a complimentary lunch. We arrived via the spa to the outside deck and had to find our way inside to the hostess which was not well marked. We waited several minutes and then 3 employees approached the... More

A friend of mine and I had lunch at Kensington during a spa day. The service was outstanding but the lobster salad was a bit pasty. The caprice salad I had to start was delicious. My friend had the scallop salad and she very much enjoyed hers. We will return but I will steer clear of the lobster salad.

Main restaurant for Norwich Inn and Spa. Great variety on menu. Nutrition info for offerings. Had breakfast as part of overnight package. Friend's omelet was good. Ordered Crabcake Benedict with request for dry scrambled egg instead of poached. Presentation not very appealing. Crab (was it a cake to begin with?) completely covered with eggs underdone for my taste. Hollandaise very... More

Wonderful atmosphere, but oh no. As part of the package at the spa, we had lunch. My friends avocado cakes bland and not crusty at all. My lobster salad bland and no seasoning what so ever. The Thai mussels delicious but the potato fries oily and limp. Wait staff excellent....maybe the frier broken?

The food lovely to look at but was bland, tasteless, lukewarm, old. The waitstaff was attentive but more interested in moving you along and out than being friendly. The portions were small and I wish I had brought some seasonings including salt and pepper so I could taste something while it was in my mouth. More attention is paid to... More

We've eaten there many times. The food is generally very good. The service tends to be slow. If you're staying at the Inn or on the property I definitely recommend checking it out. There are other restaurants in the area but this is most convenient especially if you're there just for the spa.

We had the Spaliday package when staying at the Norwich Inn and ate dinner and brunch here (it was included in the package). We all enjoyed our meals-my chocolate birthday cake was fabulous after dinner!
