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.

The food is some of the best you will find in the area, and the service is top notch. I recommend it for businesses lunches, special occasions, and an evening out for couples.
