Although I did not actually stay at the inn, my best friend and I decided to have a birthday brunch at the White Gull Inn restaurant, and it was amazing!! The service was excellent and fast.

Exceeded my fish boil expectations! Dinner was fabulous as was the explanation outside of the boil process and history. Would've been even better if not raining, but still made for a memorable evening! Also, they were very accommodating to a gluten free member of our party. Much appreciated!

Wonderful restaurant that is classic and delicious. It knows itself and excels at its classics with some new twists on old favorites. We LOVED the wedge salad, whitefish with mushroom sauce, and salmon on farro. Dont miss the warm Parker House rolls!! Sitting out back is beautiful with the flowers and birds. Love it here!
