“What a Bore”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

The new owners did a fantastic job in creating a beautiful interior. What they have forgotten or better yet is failed to find is a cook with any pazazz. The menu items are a bore with very little creativity and rather bland. We waited a long time for their new opening just to be very disappointed with the foods. Tim Delaney

Each sandwich & salad had a special flare. The sweet pea soup, unlike any we'd ever tasted, prompted our ordering another large bowl so we all could try it. The delicately ginger under tone & cinnamon encrusted crostini was a hit. We had a delightful chat with the chef & returned later in the day to: sample three delicious desserts, visit the kitchen, check-out the totally refurbished guest rooms. We will definately make the trip from Boston to Olde Lyme a regular event, to dine at the Inn, visit the Museum, & see the Art Association exhibits.

Room Tip: (The guestrooms will be available soon - I couldn't "unclick" sleep quality.) There ar...
