My husband and 12 year old son surprised me by taking me here for my birthday. We live in the Berkshires but had never been to New Marlborough before other than to drive through.
We stayed in room 191, which had a larger four poster bed, a single brass bead, and a lovely sitting area with a couch. The room was perfect for our family of three. It was quaint and perfectly clean with some really pleasant modern touches like wonderful bath products and fluffy extra blankets.
My husband and I ate in the dining room. (We got take-out sushi for our son, who ate in the room and hung out - his bday present to me was the gift of a romantic dinner for his parents...) I am a true foodie and my husband is not, but he chose this place to bring me because he had read reviews of the restaurant online. It did not disappoint either of us!
We both ordered the tasting menu, and between the two of us were able to sample everything offered on the menu. Everything was amazing. We loved the slow, delightful pacing of the meal. We awaited each new course with eager anticipation. I actually got food-inspired goose bumps twice during this meal - at the beet tarte tatin, a starter, and at the polenta, a side with the rack of lamb. I am not kidding. I am sure the element of surprise played into my mood, but the food, the wine, the candlelit atmosphere... It was amazing. Don't even get me started on the breakfast...
In the morning as we drove away after checking out, my son said, "That was great; we will definitely go back there!" I am not sure if I will ever be lucky enough to go to The Old Inn on the Green again, but the memories of fine food, atmosphere, and company will linger for years to come.
