Guest have the option of eating in the dining room or pub, but with the option of the dining room menu in the pub we opted for that. Great choice as the atmosphere is fun and warm. Menu has great selection and we were not disappointed with ours: Rack of lamb and duck! Perfectly prepared and pleasantly presented. A very relaxing and delicous meal. We would happily return!

We planned this restaurant after coming here quite a few times the past 20 years . It was my mothers 80 th birthday although I phoned to confirm 2 times wen we arrived the table still was not ready and they had to scramble to st it up the attitude was not at all friendly service was slow and food not great at all only one out of 8 really loved his dinner . The tenderloin ,, the schnizel were soggy because the past had not been properly strained as was the snapper the curry shrimp was fair at best. There was no special treatment for my moms 80 th not even a scoop of ice-cream w a candle. They all seemed like we were a bother. We were sorry we chose this place for here special nite but sunflowers made up for it the next nite

We recently had dinner in the main dining room (not the Pub, though would also like to try that) on a Sat night. The food was excellent. For such a small place I was impressed with the menu options, service, food presentation, and taste. Other tables looked to be filled with folks celebrating- it has that kind of atmosphere. We had the veal and the lamb shanks, and we were both very pleased with our meals (and with the left overs- portions were plentiful). The bread service is worth commenting on-- seemed like homemade bread with an excellent dipping oil. A nice wine completed the meal-- no appetizers or desserts needed though they looked great as well. We will return!

Haven't been here yet this summer but it's one of our favorite motorcycle stops to take a break and have a nice dinner on the porch. Owners are wonderful and so is the food. Love the decor as well. They also have one of the best creme brulees around!

Chef rocks--great creativity and execution. Bartender serves a good martini. Sweet New England atmosphere. A great place to celebrate something special as a couple or with the whole family.
