The Fernwood Inn is the custodian of a fine evening, whatever type of hype you're looking for. Be it pub or bistro, gastro-pub if you will. The place is well layed out so that each crowd is covered. Drinks are as various as can be,...More

We ate there on a Tuesday night, and it was packed. Always a good sign when the locals fill the place regularly. Delicious food, reasonable prices and service was attentive.
