The range of reviews for this 260+ year old inn is surprising, leading me to believe the Inn and its staff has good days and bad days. Since they also have a banquet hall, I wonder if the bad days coincide with large parties in...More

Recently attended an event here. Food was good and the venue is very nice. Service at one of the makeshift bars that was setup was a bit off and slow. Other than that, very nice restaurant.

Every experience I have ever had at the cranbury inn reminds me to never go back again. Terrible food, presentation and decent service staff plus the pomposity of the owners is overwhelming

The service was not great although the restaurant was barely crowded. There were maybe 10 tables full. The food was not really good and somewhat tasteless. I was very much not impressed.
