Orangeville/Caledon small inn-type setting, fine dining?

  • 7

We are looking for a nice restaurant to go to in the Orangeville/Caledon area - an "Inn -type place" preferably with a nice view, patio, good food - fine dining type etc.
Something like reconverted old homes? or country settings with patios. have been to millcroft inn, so looking for something a bit different. would appreciate hearing about any recommendations or "hidden gems"! thanks

  1. I wouldn't recommend Mrs. Mitchell's Restaurant on Hwy 89 east of Hwy 10. Beautiful converted schoolhouse, lovely grounds, but the food is mediocre.

    I've also eaten at Ray's 3rd Generation Bistro Bakery in Alton, which has a patio out back but, again, the food was not great.

    The Belfountain Inn in Belfountain has potential but the two times I've eaten there, I've been underwhelmed.

    One99 on Broadway in Orangeville is quite good, but it doesn't fit your profile.

    You might want to take a look at this listing on the Hills of Headwaters website: http://www.thehillsofheadwaters.com/e...

          Another vote for the Mono Cliffs Inn. Nice room upstairs and a dungeon-like pub in the basement. Good food, varied menu, friendly staff. And you can take a hike on the Bruce Trail to build up an appetite.

      1. I also recommend the Mono Cliffs Inn - the food is lovely. I like to eat in the pub downstairs, its a very intimate room and Wayne is awesome.

          Dropped in this week to Peter Cellars Pub. Totally full and hopping! So went upstairs to eat at the fine dining restaurant - the server allowed me to order from the pub menu. The bread pudding has changed a bit but the butterscotch caramel sauce is still tops! Upstairs menu looks expensive but I don't know if it's actually that much better than the already perfect downstairs much-cheaper pub menu. This is gastropub food at its best.

        2. Try the Black Birch Restaurant on Hockley Valley Road, just north/east of Orangeville. Chef Mark Mogenson prepares first rate food, much of it local and organic. Nice atmosphere as well. You won't be disappointed!
