“Excellent food”
Reviewed 6 September 2011

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Making a reservation was easy and I would recommend it since it's a bit out of town. It only took maybe 15 minutes to get there from town but the road is windy so in the dark you just need to be careful.

The area around the Inn is really nice. I would like to stay here sometime although it is a bit expensive.

I had the chipolte ribeye and my wife had the beef wellington. Both were excellent. All the sides were also excellent. I loved the butter with garlic and balsamic on the bread. It's a really nice place inside and it was a great option for Monday with some of the other higher end places in the area closed that day. We were seating in what looked like a wide hallway with tables on both sides and a nice view of the river. The tables were a little close together but not such a big deal as you only had another table on one side the other 3 were the hall and walls. The menu isn't huge so look it over on the website before you go but they seem to cover enough options that most will be able to find something. The price was I think very reasonable for such a nice place with such good food.

I can't wait to go back.

“Goldmoor strikes "GOLD"”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

Went to the Goldmoor for Late dinner, the staff was outstanding. From the time they greet you to the time you leave. Patricia was friendly and done to earth. It feels more like eating with friends then at a restaurant. Sue, was our server, she was the best. Request her! She was so helpful, beyond the food. The FOOD was outstanding, top notch. The price made it even better. Very well presented but at half the cost! The drive to the Goldmoor seems a bit out of the way, but well worth the trip. A must do spot. We will be back again and again.
