Within a stately Tudor Revival building, The Fernwood Inn's kitchen sparks with creative energy as a team of chefs dedicated to the pursuit of inventive, locally sourced, and gastropub fare get to work chopping, sautéing and crisping. As servers glide across the dining room’s fir floors, aromatic tendrils from smoked meats and Asian-influenced seafood and soup dishes announce plates' arrival before they're even set down. As bites disappear between lips, oversized mirrors and wooden casks add a touch of casual elegance, and the outdoor patio enables much-underrated fresh air to get in on alfresco feeding frenzies during the warm-weather months. Gathering the community on select evenings, The Fernwood Inn hosts live musical performances as well as open mic nights frequented by young talent and juke boxes showing up on their reunion tours. Guests enjoy the large south-facing patio, as well as a special brunch menu every Saturday and Sunday.
