Best food I think I've ever had. I had a delicious perfectly cooked steak. The waitress was amazing and our glasses were never less than half full. Can't wait to go back

We felt welcomed the moment we stepped into the Inn. The staff was very friendly, our room quaint, the walk around the grounds were lovely, and our dinner on the terrace was delicious and unpressured. The breakfast the next morning was also delicious and plentiful.

We had dinner this evening at the English Inn restaurant. Both of us of us had the prime rib dinner. It was excellently prepared. The wait staff was very professional. We have the chocolate dessert and it was scrumptious! It was the best 50th anniversary experience!

We sat on the patio outside the pub. It was quiet so we were able to easily talk with friends we hadn't seen in so long. The service was top notch and the food was delicious. I had the surf & turf; hubs had the medallions. Both were perfectly prepared. Our table shared the Baked Brie - yummy. A bit... More

The food is THE best in the area. The atmosphere is so beautiful and relaxing it enhances the experience. Inside the Inn or outside, you are surrounded by a thoughtfully cared for place. The gardens and landscaping is beautiful as well as the interior. I've had duck, prime rib and stark here, all cooked perfectly. I'd recommend the cheese plate... More

As a present for a milestone birthday we were delighted to experience the English Inn's package deal for dinner, overnight and breakfast. We had enjoyed dinners and special events here before. This time one of the new cottages was booked for us, rather than an upstairs room in the hotel with fairly lavish but outdated decor. The cottages are beautifully... More

Sat on the patio outside the Pub. Good service and quiet atmosphere. Had the Cornish Pasty and my wife had the lobster cake sandwich. Both very good.

We came here for an overnight stay after winning a gift certificate. It's a beautiful bed and breakfast with very friendly staff. The grounds are well cared for and the rooms are very nice. We did not eat at the restaurant because we had made reservations elsewhere, but we did enjoy the pub and outdoor seating after dinner, which was... More

This was my first time at the English Inn. We were celebrating our anniversary. I absolutely fell in love with the gorgeous grounds and historic home. From the beautiful antiques to the charming piano music, I was immediately transported back in time. Our server was very friendly and the food was incredible. I had the filet, which was cooked perfectly... More
