It is not always about the food. Shocking, but Daniel Packer's authenticity as an historic Inn adds so much warmth, beauty and history to the dining experience it cannot be underestimated. Fireplaces blazing in every dining room, hand cut ceiling beams, rough plaster walls and priceless framed historic documents add comfort and interesting details that enhance the service and the food. We have been going to DPI for many years and twice this month enjoying lunch and dinner in the pub and dining room. The salads are all excellent, especially the pear salad, my favorite. The french onion soup is also very good. I sent back my duck because the cherry sauce was too thick and the duck too dry. It is difficult to prepare duck perfectly to my liking. I am really picky. The waitstaff at the DPI are all excellent. The waitress asked me what else she could bring me and in ten minutes I had excellent Lamb Chops. Server recommended and excellent bottle of wine. My 12 year old son ordered a burger with bacon for dinner and it was perfectly prepared medium rare. My husband ordered the Filet and it was consistently tender and flavorful. Definitely try DPI.
