I have been to the English room for business and casual gatherings with business associates. It is one of my preferred places to enjoy a great meal. I highly recommend this restaurant for all types of gatherings.

Went here for our anniversary dinner. We both had seafood (sea bass and halibut). The appetizers were also excellent. The grilled octopus has more octopus than some entrees i've had. They are known for their pop-overs, which are addictive.

I ate here recently and was impressed by the whole experience. The greeting and quick seating was very pleasant. The attentive polite and professional staff were first class. The food came out in a timely fashion and was very good indeed. I will definitely return.

We love the English Room at the Deerpath Inn. It's very much like visiting a hotel in England. The food and service are excellent. And the entire place was remolded a few years ago so everything is perfect.
