Hey all. We are headed there this Sunday for special dinner. Just a few questions. Having never eaten there before, it seems there are several different dining rooms. Is there a specific room that's best suited for a special occassion (i.e. more private/quiet). We were looking at the Tasting Menu online. Is that offered on Sundays and would it be a mistake not to get it? Is what's on the website what they are offering currently? For those who have done it, is it worth doing the wine pairing with it?

Anxious to hear from those who ahve recent dining experiences there as many of the posts are a little old.

  1. There are many old inns on many greens in New England, so it would be helpful if you were a bit more specific.

      Maybe. But, only one called The Old Inn on The Green that I know of. Which have you been to?

    2. Peter Platt, chef/owner was the head chef at Wheatleigh in Lenox. Having said that, I would recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing because we are entering into THE season as far as fresh local produce and victuals are concerned. As far as dining rooms, it is an old coach in and the rooms are all fairly cozy. If it were in the winter, i would recommend the room with the fireplace. I hope you have a wonderful time. It is one of my wife's and my favorite places to eat in the Berkshires.

      1. The Old Inn on the Green in New Marlboro is exceptional!!! The place was converted from an old stage coach Inn. There are different small rooms on the first floor for dining, and guest rooms upstaris. Peter's food is off the hook! Very expensive, but worth the treat if it is in your budget.

        1. Old Inn on the Green is terrific. It is one of my favorite places, and, it is only there and at Blantyre where I will cede wine choice to them. James Stahl at Old Inn is UltimateWineCzar...has an encyclopaedic knowledge and will always hook customers up with something wonderful.
