Best Restaurants Within New England Inns?

RSS button (From Our Questions and Answers Feature)

What are some of the best restaurants in New England that are located inside hotels, inns, or other places to stay? My favorites are perhaps the Silvermine Tavern in Norwalk, CT, and the restaurant within the Foxfire Inn in Stowe, VT, but other than that, I can't say I've been to too many memorable ones. Any thoughts? [Go here to post a reply.]

The Inn at Thorn Hill in Jackson, NH. Terrific Food. Great wine list. Nice bar. Comfortable romantic Inn. Rebuilt after a fire several years ago. Now has spa facilities, jacuzzi in most rooms, etc. Wine Spectator and travel magazines have ranked it among the best places to stay nationally.

We recently had dinner at The Coachman Inn in Bellingham, MA. The food was very good, large portions, and was decorated nicely for the holidays. If ordering before 6 pm Monday thru Friday there is a special menu for $35 per couple including a bottle of wine.

The Silvermine Tavern is lovely - the atmosphere, the water falls, delightful. However, the food is just ok.

I've been told that our Restaurant and Inn is a rare find - Most are either nice B and B's or great restaurants, not both! Numerous guests have said how relaxing it is to have a world class restaurant with beautifully appointed guest suites all in one. No need to get back in the car and drive again. Our Spa services in our Cellar "Grotto" will be available to the public in time for Valentine's Weekend. Check us out at if you're interested in authentic Austrian and German ambience and cuisine look no further! Lisa Krach - Proprietress

Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA has the best traditional New England food possible. The inn is a wonderful tribute to our New England heritage.

I second KAS's suggestion...The Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA is really wonderful. The food is great and reasonably priced. It's a wonderful atmosphere in a place with rich history.

I happened upon the quaint Hancock Inn in Hancock, NH. Their cranberry pot roast is to die for, and a great wine list to boot.

John Stone's -Ashland ma.
Great beer, atmosphere, beautiful fireplace. Never fails to satisfy. Still the best strip sirloin I've had. Even in alleged steak houses. Mushroom risotto's a winner.
