Within the walls of the restaurant you will find the Simon Kenton Pub, our tiny four seat bar lovingly referred to as "The best four seats in the Commonwealth." Additionally, guests are invited to visit our wine cellar deep within the original stone foundation of our historic mill. Nestled among the old gears of the Waterwheel, guests will find over 250 different and unique selections of wine. Our cellar has the good fortune to carry wines that are in very small production, yet very high demand, and only found in a handful of restaurants throughout the state.
