AAA Inspector Notes
Classic Historic. Located right in the center of the historic village and near the riverfront, this historic rustic country inn is the epitome of New England ambience with a 250-year-old Tap Room lounge where traditional entertainment is offered nightly. A nautical theme is carried throughout the dining room with historical memorabilia, ship lanterns and wooden captain's chairs. Classic New England fare is the focus with such dishes as prime rib, country ham and fresh fish. Their signature fish and chips platter is tastefully different with a potato-crusted batter that is fried and served with a perfectly balanced house-made tarter sauce. Wash it all down with a pint of their own pale Ale. Request a table by one of the large working fireplaces for a romantic evening.
