Thanks for the mention on your website. Just a small correction…
The Old Mill is open Tu-Sun year-round, and also on Mondays mid-June through mid-Oct.
The Old Mill is by far our favorite restaurant in the Berkshires. We stop for dinner frequently on our way to our weekend home. Food aside, Ginny, the maitre d’am, Terry, head chef and owner, and Adrian, bartender extrodinaire and master of the Grey Goose martini, are warm and welcoming. On a snowy winter’s evening, a drink in the bar with its crackling fire will make you think you’ve stepped back, into a Dickens novel. The food and service are of the highest quality. Terry’s weekly Specials menu is something we look forward to. Among our favorite appetizers are the onion soup, pate, onion tarte and frogs legs. Our entrees are often pan sauted trout, fish of the day, liver and onions (where have you seen that lately?), or roast beef with popover. If we have room for desert, it’s usually from the Specials menu. This place can’t be beat. You’ll feel like a regular after your first visit.
Love the Old Mill! Hosts and service are great and meals are always delicious!!!

Sited by a rushing creek in a converted 1832 flour mill, this reliable Berkshire perennial has the bona fides to play up the old Ye Olde. Yet on this and every other front, there’s evidence at The Old Mill of admirable Yankee restraint. The decor, while pleasant, isn’t straining for affect; the chef, while clearly up on the latest, delivers it pretension-free (Soup of Yesterday, $7, is both witty and wise). Diners even get the chance to indulge in old-fashioned thrift: An ample first-course salad is included with every entrée. And where else can you follow something as sophisticated as pan-roasted Berkshire pork chop with caramelized apple, Calvados glaze and root vegetable hash ($26) or grilled organic salmon with citrus vinaigrette and a wild-rice risotto cake ($26) with a chocolate ice cream sundae for dessert.
