GREAT food nice atmosphire

Food was really great, the service at dinner was a little lacking and we thought it might be due to the fact that the tip is already included in the price (we stayed on property) so there was no incentive for the wait staff to be over the top great. However, at breakfast the service was wonderful... read more

The food was fresh and there were so many options to choose from. Service was a bit slow but we were all happy to sit and chat so it didn't bother us too much.

We went for a Friday overnight. A friend suggested dinner in front of the fireplace and as we eat early, sat alone in a small room, great as it was like a honeymoon. Micheal our waiter was perfect, letting us sit and talk, listen to some romantic music (from my phone, we kept it really low) and enjoyed each course.... More

We stayed at the Norwich inn and spa for the night and had the most delicious and healthy lunch the next day. It was called The pad Thai salad. It has shrimp, cashews, egg, tofu, spinach, roasted red peppers and a light lemony vinaigrette. Would definitely eat there again when in area!

The server was very sweet and attentive. The manager passed by to check on us, but it was not overwhelming. The food was amazing, really delicious. Portions were plentiful and the wine list had great choices. I would definitely return for another meal. There was no issue with making a slight change to my dish to accommodate my preferences.

Great pub food while staying at The Spa at the Norwich Inn. It's a small pub and the drinks and food have always been good.

We dined at Kensington's for lunch, which was included in our spa packages and the food, decor, and service was excellent. I highly recommend the burger and and of the salads. Avoid the lobster rolls. Cold and loaded with celery. Way too much celery. But my meal was excellent. My wife suffered through the lobster roll. I made up for... More

We have lunched and dinned many times at Kensington's and had pleasant meals, but this year Mother's Day special was a disaster. Oysters have a very potent ( foul) smelling, the shrimps were soggy, the lobster bisque had so much flour that stuck the the spoon, the halibut was overcooked etc. the only thing that I could eat was the...
