I wrote a rough review back in 2015 concerning the quality of the food and am happy to say it is much improved - I highly recommend dining here. Give yourself at least 2 hours - this place is a real treat.

The Gold Hill Inn...When you walk in, you feel like you stepped back in time to the 1800s! The menu is a 3 or 6 course meal. It's very reasonable. The service staff and bartender were very friendly. The manager stopped by a couple of...More
