This was our 2nd visit the wait time for table was just about an hour service was better about getting us drinks and menus. Food is good place has nice decor. Can be very loud due to small area and many people. Great choices for beer and drinks.

We enjoyed several meals at Old Owl Tavern while visiting the Beaumont Inn. The food was good as was the service. Menu is somewhat limited but adequate.

We enjoyed a casual Monday night dinner at the Old Owl Tavern while staying at the Beaumont Inn. The food was very good as was the service. The bourbon selection is second to none. We would certainly dine here again and recommend it to others.

I was in a group of about 10 people, we arrived close to closing. The staff was great welcomed us with open arms. Food was very good. I had a dinner salad, very good. Everyone in the group enjoyed their food. Great menu!
