After walking thru the village for several hours, it was a pleasure to come out of the heat and sit for a lovely lunch.

We always wanted to experience Thanksgiving as a family at Sturbridge Village and finally managed to do it several years ago. It isn't cheap, and there were 10 of us, but we were really excited about the experience. The main thing that stays with me is the word "salt". Everything was so salty as to be almost inedible.

The food selection is incredible for the price charged. Everything is always being re-filled and the staff is exceptional. Great coffee as well.

The Bullard Tavern used to have a period buffet daily and it was wonderful. It went away not long after Oliver Wight opened - very poor substitute. They do have a Thanksgiving buffet. We went in 2014 and it was just terrific - so many choices, well-prepared and presented. But the 2015 dinner was scant in comparison with cheap desserts,... More

Highly recommend the sunday brunch! We have a picky 6 year old, and he always walks away full so that's a bonus for us. Choices range from carbs to eggs, veggies, and a carving station. Price is reasonable for all you can eat.

I always love to eat at historically preserved inns and restaurants. I was not disappointed. The menu seemed very authentic for the period. It had good beers to choose from. You need not fear as everything that we had was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.

Best to dine early to avoid the crowds. Excellent chicken pot pie and other traditional New England comfort foods. Kids menu. Historic atmosphere. Great drink selection. Fabulous baked goods. Plan to take some time to enjoy your meal.

Basically high priced average to bad food. Run by a food service. Think hospitals. Too bad associated with Old Sturbridge Village. Went on a special events night at the Village.
