“The Windsor House gets a much needed upgrade.”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The Windsor House has recently changed ownership and, wow, what a difference! Being one of just a few restaurants/bars in Duxbury, the old owners clearly took for granted the captive audience. This was apparent in both the mediocre food and hit or miss service. The new owners have raised the bar significantly, renovating the building and the grounds while maintaining the quaintness and charm of the property.

The food is great. I have tried the fish & chips, the chowder, the chicken wings, and the mussels. All top notch. The service is friendly and present without being too overbearing and the atmosphere is both relaxing and inviting. I have dined in the tavern and on the new patio. I look forward to classing it up in the gorgeous main dining room soon.

If you haven't been in a while, definitely go check it out. A Duxbury landmark has finally been given the care and attention it deserves!

The WHI is in a super location in one of New Englands premier villages. The just updated restaurant in the Inn has become a local landmark again for good food and atmosphere since the new owners brought in the amazing chief and re-ddecorated and expanded the tasteful dining spaces. We really needed a neat place to stay for just one night while I was on my way to paint in Monhegan, Maine, the next morning and my wife was about to spend the week with family locally. The Inn has been completely re-done and it is beyond any expectations for a 5 star hotel in room detains and furnishings. There are 2 really big 2nd floor suits in the front of the Inn and right now as the removation of this historic location continues I am sure plans include bathrooms in both rooms not just one. Right now the room I chose has a bath down the hall, and I knew that when I booked it. The Innkeeper is excited about re-opening of the Inn as a place for travelers to stay and is anxious to please for sure. We loved our one night stay and will make the WHI our home base during family visits to the area. A Tip: Get up early and take your camera on your walk to the village French Bakery for breakfast.

My family was in Duxbury for a wedding and the Winsor House Inn was perfect for us. The inn is under new ownership, and the new owners have done a tremendous job upgrading everything -- the food, the facilities, the service...everything. The new owners were incredibly accommodating and made our stay as easy as possible by making sure we had a pack and play for the baby, getting us all settled in, and even accommodating us for a last minute brunch for 12 people before the wedding.

I understand that many of the negative reviews here were from when the inn was under prior ownership, but if our experience was any indication of what the Winsor House Inn will be going forward, it is worth the trip! They have completely renovated the restaurant, and it looks amazing (and was incredibly busy... full of Duxbury locals every night!).

The location is also as ideal as you can find in Duxbury. It is a short walk to Snug Harbor for coffee and a pastry in the morning, and just a bit further to the beach. Thank you to everyone at the Winsor House for helping us have a fun and relaxing wedding weekend!
