We took my Mother here for her birthday celebration dinner, expecting a nice, upscale meal. What a huge disappointment. To say our server struggled to open our bottle of wine is an understatement. First, she could not remove the foil. Then, instead of using a conventional corkscrew, she used some automated bottle opener. Which she clearly didn't know how to... More

Offering a wide variety of really good food, in multiple themed dining rooms, the Buxton In is a landmark in Granville and a must-see, must-dine experience for anyone in the area. The ghosts that have been seen from time to time just add frosting to the cake!

We dined in the main dining room and enjoyed the experience and ambiance. We had chatted with the chef in the bar earlier in late afternoon, and took his recommendations for dinner. I had their Chesapeake Seafood entree, which was good but very rich. I got a Caesar Salad, which was pretty good. The rolls were fresh and tasty. I... More

What a charming and historic place for a wonderful evening dinner. We found the wine selection to be good, The beef and fish were prepared just right and the host and wait staff took very good care of us. This was a great date night for us.

We had the nightly special as it came highly recommend. Next time we will try something off the menu as we will return. Service was... More

Buxton Inn used to be our go to place for fine dining and we even held our daughters rehearsal dinner there. It slowly went down hill with an out dated menu until we stopped going. It is now under new management and we gave it a try. We ate in the Tavern downstairs and enjoyed our meals. My wife loved... More

The Buxton Inn hosted our Rehearsal Dinner in the Lincoln Room, a beautiful historic room in the oldest section of the Inn. Tony, Events Coordinator, had everything prepared when we arrived and gave us an impromptu and very interesting tour of the Inn. Salads were fresh, crisp, and delicious. Most of our party of 30 enjoyed the main course which... More

I went on a ghost hunt in this town with a group of ladies a couple Octobers ago and we spent the weekend here. The bar/restaurant in the cellar is special. All the rooms are different and that is always interesting to me. We had a really nice dinner here too. I am not convinced that it is haunted.

good for the Buxton to update the entrance and dining area. Food was terrific although the staff were overwhelmed so made the experience less enjoyable.

A party of five for dinner arrived at six pm, restaurant not crowded. Due to apparent shortage of wait staff we were alternated between waiters. Myself wife ordered filet to share with another diner, it arrived over cooked, not on a plate without it being split. There was no potatoe, or asparagus. What asparagus was served was hard and not...
