The Inn, built in the 1700's, retains the feel and charm of that pre-Revolutionary period. It is located in historic Oxford, a delightful little town that was founded before 1700. The Inn has a great location, overlooking the Tred-on-Avon river. The view looking across the river is spectacular, though very few of the rooms in the Inn have such a panoramic view. The town has many historic old homes and buildings that are well preserved and that are still inhabited today. The Inn is perfectly located--just across the Strand from the ferry dock--which gives visitors to acces the Ocford-Bellvue ferry with ease. The ferry is the best way to get across the river and to visit the neighboring town of St. Michael's, which has many quaint shops and delightful restaurants. The only negative to the Robert Morris Inn is that the rooms and their furnishings need updating.

Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under celebrity Chef Proprietor, Mark Salter and Ian Fleming. Enter the Inn and step back 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in the cooler months and offering casual outside dining on our Terraces and Veranda during balmy warm summers. This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service. ... more less
