Anything Chowish in Sturbridge, MA?

I don't get to this part of the state very often, and am wondering what's worth checking out for dinner. Any cuisine, any price level.
About 18 months ago I had a wonderful meal at a place called Perennials, in an inn if I recall? I just tried looking for the website and couldn't find it, so that may mean they've closed?
Thanks for the tips, 'hounds!
We ended up a Perennials, as it was quite near our destination. I thought it was quite pleasant: a pretty room, attentive service, a decent Eclectic menu (though the chef has a penchant for putting scallops in about 70% of his dishes).
We did overorder, however: the Caeser was big enough for three people, each entree (a sirloin pizzaiola and a chicken tenders on pasta dish) easily big enough for two. A lemon mousse with fresh berries needed less sweetness and more lemon, but was mercifully light.
I hate wasting food, but doggie bags would have sat without refrigeration for hours. I'd forgotten than most places outside of the city have these portion sizes. Next time here, we'll share one app and one entree.

I know, I know..it's nor Chowish, but, the best food I've had in Sturbridge is at the Piccadilli Pub. Much homemade food in a very unlikely place. French fries so good that ketchup is an insult to them. Turkey pot pie that would put grandma to shame. Best choices from the specials menu. It's not a place to propose to your sweetie (unless she's really special) but it is very reasonably priced and good!!
