Would you rather have dinner…or a feast? Sit in a sticky booth…or sit by a massive, roaring fire? Fight for parking at your local chain restaurant…or settle into a sleigh ride around an ancient farmhouse? Yeah, me too.

The Salem Cross Inn is a restored 1700s-era farmhouse in West Brookfield. The inn has been passed down through the generations, and today they offer a whole host of incredible historically-themed events and celebrations. However, if you want to experience authentic colonial cooking in a setting that is utterly unique, your best bet would be to attend one of their unforgettable Fireplace Feasts.

The Salem Cross Inn also offers a Mothers Day event, a special “Drovers Roast” where attendees celebrate the summer season with an outdoor feast, and periodic murder mystery dinners. Check out their website for a full list of offerings.

Is historical dining for you? Or would you rather an ultra-sleek modern dining experience? Either way, you can’t argue with a delicious cauldron of good, old-fashioned clam chowder.
