Great food, great service. If you eat at the Inn daily, you'll soon be on a first name basis with staff and some of the local regulars.

Description
Located on Route 13 yet only fifteen minutes drive south of The City of Salisbury, the area overflows with attractions and amenities, yet still keeps a quiet rural charm and a home-town feel. This 17th Century Tavern offers great spaces for dining, food that is not pretentious and great service to compliment.
