Norwich Inn – Historic New England Dining

The dining options are as varied as the menu choices at the historic Norwich Inn.

Veal Piccata

Veal Piccata.
Local veal and asparagus. Delicious.

Depending upon your mood or the weather you can choose the Jasper Murdock’s Ale House Pub, Outdoor Dining on the Patio, the Inn’s Dining Room, or out of the Terrace. The same menu options are available wherever you choose to dine. Advance Reservations, however,  are only available in the dining room or terrace areas. The Pub dining is “first come, first served”. The Norwich Inn chefs have fantastic contacts with local foragers, farms, and orchards. That means, the menu is always evolving but the options are always fresh and delicious.  Farm-to-table beef, chicken, veal, produce, and cheeses are incorporated into the made-to-order dishes. The restaurant also has a full-service liquor license, talented bartenders, delightful waitstaff, and an unmatched atmosphere.

Historic New England Dining

The Norwich Inn dining room features a nice view of Main Street in Norwich. You can feel the history as you look out during dinner. An Inn has been on this spot since 1776 and the view has not changed all that much in Norwich. While there are other historic restaurants in New England very few have been brewing beer as long as the Norwich Inn has. That tradition was revived in 1993 when Jasper Murdock’s Alehouse began producing traditional English-style ales in 5-gallon glass jugs. Jasper Murdock’s beers are sold only at the Inn. You should call in advance to place an order to pick up when you come to the Inn. This historic New England restaurant was visited by President James Monroe. He dined at the Norwich Inn in 1817 while on a horseback tour of the New England frontier. Your visit will be quite a bit easier, the inn is just a few miles off of I-91 in Norwich, Vermont.
