The service is very efficient and pleasant and not rushed. Our table started with apps and the littleneck clams and cold tomato basil soup were standouts. The clams came in a tasty broth... More

The Inn and Garden is not just a warm and comfortable B&B it is also a great restaurant and offers a carriage house that is a wonderful place for events! Convenient to all the small town offerings of Historic Onancock.
