This fine establishment reflects the true traditions of an Inn: An establishment that will feed, wine and water the weary and sore footed and pack them off to a comfortable room and bed with a warm heart and a full belly.
Upon arriving at Governors Inn and Restaurant, I was met by Robin, the Restaurant Manager and who I perceive to be General Manager. She checked me in efficiently, courteously and, as some one who travels a great deal I appreciate this the most; a human rather than a credit line on a corporate spreadsheet that is the norm in most of my traveling experience.
Being one of the hottest days of the year, after moving into my comfortable room (queen bed with fully functioning free internet) I turned on the small but adequate air conditioner and retired to the bar for a refreshing ale. There I met Shane, the bartender, who was welcoming and friendly and plied me with a cleansing IPA out of the tap.
Later, I stopped for dinner. The comfortable, casual, pub ambiance was complemented with an excellent menu of interesting advertisers, seafood, various meat and vegetarian dishes and salads. I'd estimate the average entree to be aroudn $18. I chose the Seafood Gratine. The service was prompt and professional. The food just excellent. I know by this point I'm raving but it really was excellent. I travel all the time and eat out (by necessity, not choice) as much as I eat in. This dish was memorable.
I was here midweek so there was no live entertainment but Shane told me that from Thursday through Sunday they support live music. There is a pleasant beer garden outback which I assume is in use when they have music.
At the risk of booring any readers and loosing credibility I'll leave off here but I'm really glad to know such an establishment still exists in the USA.
