Dinner at the Inn
The Garden Gables Inn is well-known for the quality of our breakfasts. We take that same care to bring you a variety of dining options throughout the year. We feature many organic and locally-sourced ingredients. And, you will be happy to know that our food is made in-house, in our own kitchen by our professional culinary team, headed by Inn Chef, Peter Emery. Please let us know of any special food preferences that you have, and we will ensure that your meal is prepared to accommodate your needs.
Private Chef's Table - A romantic, private dining experience. Our Private Dining Experience is available in September, and November through mid-June (please call to check availability). Our Private Chef's Table delivers that special experience that will be the highlight of your stay. Custom design your own menu, working with Inn Chef, Peter Emery. Dinners for two are served in our intimate library by the fireside, or, for larger groups, by candlelight in our dining room. Menus priced from $175 for two*.
Special Saturdays - Dining at the Inn - November - May. On selected Saturday nights we are hosting Chef's Table Dinner Parties. Chef Peter Emery invites you to his table to enjoy his culinary creations. Our Dinner Parties are served at 7 PM, either at a community table - where you can meet and mingle with other Inn guests - or, as available, you may choose your own private seating in our dining room and porch. Prix fixe, 4-course menu, $70 pp*. Chef's Table Dinner Party menus will be posted soon. Call us for more details and to book your seat at the chef's table.
Summer/Fall Dining - Our Summer/Fall dining is available on Saturday evenings, 5:30-7:30, from late June through the end of October. Our ala carte menu is perfect for a leisurely dinner away from the crowds, or for meeting your pre-performance dining needs. We can pack your dinner for Tanglewood.

“Northern hospitality... I have a gluten allergy, and mentioned this when making the reservation - no problem. The innkeeper even prepared some gluten free brownies for me. They were easily the best brownies I've ever had."
