Main Dining Room

The Dining Room occupies the space of the former main milling floor. Voted by Zagat as one of New Jersey's top restaurants for decor, the room exudes understated warmth and ambience. Deep windowsills, exposed beams, crisp white walls and a knotty pine floor blend well with muted linens, polished brass accents and a contemporay tabletop. Historic photos depicting the Mill's long history hang by heavy chestnut timbers notched by the wear of ropes & belts once part of the milling machinery. With seating for 75 guests, the Dining Room is also popular for private parties.


Fireside Tavern

Down the stairs, through the wine cellar and past the rusty skeleton of the last water wheel is the Inn's best kept secret. The Fireside Tavern boasts a full service bar and table seating for 50 persons. An authentic brick floor, thick stone walls, hand hewn wooden beams and a massive working fireplace lend a decidedly rustic ambience. The Tavern is the repository of numerous artifacts from the old gristmill. Of particular note is the old checkerboard on the ceiling. Over the years, the millers played checkers to pass the time between farmers' wagons laden with newly harvested grain.

About the Inn

Gracious dining, fireside tavern, and cozy overnight accommodations in a restored 1769 stone gristmill, located just one mile south of I80 in historic village, promise a romantic getaway and healthful retreat. There are also ample facilities for meetings and weddings.
