Old Mill Restaurant, Westminster, MA

The 1761 Old Mill in Westminster, MA,  is simply classic New England with its lovely pond graced by ducks, a sweet smelling waterfall, a walk-through covered bridge, and the charming restaurant interior with old wooden floors, and post and beam ceilings in the main dining rooms. 

The front room has a lovely view of the pond through some lovely old-fashioned windows. Dining highlights are the sweet, sticky pecan rolls, and the roasted lamb rack, seasoned with rosemary, garlic and served with a demi glaze. The chicken pot pie is also a standout with tender chicken, fresh vegetables and a tremendous, flaky crust. The Old Mill Sizzler is a great choice, too, with a thick cut of prime rib grilled with peppers, onions and mushrooms on a hot sizzle platter, with teriyaki sauce. The roast duck is tremendous -- tender and plentiful with apple-based stuffing and a choice of orange glaze or gravy. After sampling the excellent homemade deserts like apple crisp or carrot cake, head down some narrow, creaky stairs and you'll find a candle-scented, old-fashioned gift shop with stone floors and comforting music in the background.Whether serving as the center of a New England day or a sidebar to exploring largely rural north central New England and the Mohawk Trail, the 1761 Old Mill represents true, traditional New England dining and scenic beauty, perhaps better than any restaurant in Massachusetts.
