*Out of site*, says it all thanks! Sorry you had an issue finding a parking spot, but a lot of people just do not follow any common sense when parking and when 1 guest parks wrong, the entire parking lot is out of sync. Anyway, thanks for this wonderful review and choosing to dine at Ye Olde Tavern. It is our goal to make every guests experience a special one and it looks like we accomplished our goal. We look forward to welcoming you again. Michael

The food was very good as well but we loved the ambiance and most importantly the fritters with the maple butter.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

It was a rainy night, but we walked from our hotel anyway since it wasn't too far. It is an old building, but the food was excellent. Venison night on Friday! I had it served over spinach and blue cheese. Started with baked Brie. Overall, a great place.

“Tons of Meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We have eaten numeours meals here and have always had an enjoyable experience. The winter months are the best providing the most charm with the fireplaces going etc....or when they do a candle light only night which we have made the trip for. I love th cranberry fritters with the maple butter - so good could almost be the best part of the meal.

John,
Thanks for taking the time for the review. So glad you got an opportunity to dine by only candlelight. We do these special evenings on the 1st Tuesday between November and March. Hopefully we will see you before the next candlelight dinner. We have 'plenty of maple butter waiting for you. Cheers. Michael
