We had heard of The English Inn from our friends, we live locally and have always wanted to try it. We chose this restaurant for our 15 year anniversary dinner as we wanted something special, and a fine dining experience. Boy were we impressed! The Inn is a historical masterpiece, in beautiful shape and well cared for. It is easy... More

We stayed the evening at the Inn, and ate in the Main Dining Room. We had a "Churchill Manhattan" (one made with Rye whiskey) to start. Then we had a couple of small side salads, and split an order of Wild Mushroom Pappardelle as our pasta course. We followed by splitting an entree of chicken fricassee. We had a bottle... More

We were in Eaton Rapids for a sporting event vent and needed dinner before the soccer match. The English Inn came up and we were intrigued by the description. Since they had a pub menu we stopped and had a great sandwich and salads along with a beer. My prime rib sandwich was killer. I believe we were here years... More

From the time you arrive you'll notice the beautiful peaceful setting and inside you will be delighted with the fine wait staff and their attention to detail. Everything we've eaten... More

He asked if we wanted a drink and we ordered a top shelve mixed drink,when he brought the drinks to us we ordered an... More

My husband have dined here and stayed at one of their cottages twice. Another time we took my brother, his husband and my mother for Thanksgiving dinner. Most recently we went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were treated to the great food, incredible service and cozy accommodations we are used to getting at the English Inn.

My fiancé and I visited for the first time last night in search of a wedding venue and wanted to check out the food. This is an amazing building with ivy crawling, situated on rolling hills and overlooking the river. There's a pergola, little cottages to rent, and of course the hotel. The restaurant is in the upstairs level, but... More

Really enjoy having dinner in The Pub. Their Fish & Chips are terrific as are their other bar menu options. Unfortunately their bar drink prices are too high. Service is always wonderful.

We enjoyed every minute. It's unusual that a bed and breakfast has such a fine dining restaurant. A pianist played perfectly appropriate songs as we progressed through a splendid dinner. Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. Prior to dinner we also had tea time in the Pub. The owner was present and happy to provide a history of the property.... More
