Lunch near Wenham Museum

Visiting in a few weeks with my inlaws and my 3 and 4 year old boys. Trying to find a lunch place. If my MIL wasn't allergic to shellfish, we'd head to Woodman's. Since that's out, any ideas?

  1. The Village might work. menu wise. Sugar Magnolia's in Gloucester has a nice lunch menu as well.

      Yelp shows The Village closed. Is it still open? Or did it move?

        Closed?? it's been around for over 50 years!

              thanks! i was looking at the village in south hamilton which closed. sorry for the confusion!!

    2. The Wenham Tea House is pleasant and the food, at least at breakfast, is good. It is family-friendly, too.

      1. I second the Wenham Tea House, which is right across the street from the museum. A few miles up the road is 15 Walnut, which also does a nice lunch.

          Wenham tea house is what I was going to say to. If you don't mind a chain, Not Your Average Joes is really close and probably would have something for everyone in your group.

            I would love to try the tea house, was just concerned they wouldn't want young children. But if it's okay, that's where we will go!

              The Tea House is casual and warm, and I would say it is very appropriate to bring young kids.

                I see kids at the Wenham Tea House frequently. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

              I went to the Wenham Tea House for lunch today, and had a fantastic experience, made even better by the server (name of Julie). The food was terrific as always. The menu isn't too broad, but my dining companion and I each found something we enjoyed.

              We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed both our food and surroundings.

            3. Wenham Tea House is lovely, the kind of place that grandmothers bring the grandchildren (granddaughters particularly) but is a bit formal if the boys tend to be more adventurous. We really like the Depot Diner in Beverly - not fancy but local and really great food. For a totally informal but awesome New England style roast beef you can't beat Nick's - also in Beverly.
