The 1761 Old Mill in Westminster, Mass., is simply classic
New England with its lovely pond graced by ducks, a sweet smelling
waterfall, a walk-through covered bridge, and the charming restaurant
interior with old wooden floors, and post and beam ceilings in the main
The front room has a lovely view of the pond through some lovely
old-fashioned windows. Dining highlights are the sweet, sticky pecan
rolls, and the roasted lamb rack, seasoned with rosemary, garlic and
served with a demi glaze. The chicken pot pie is also a standout with
tender chicken, fresh vegetables and a tremendous, flaky crust. The Old
Mill Sizzler is a great choice, too, with a thick cut of prime rib
grilled with peppers, onions and mushrooms on a hot sizzle platter,
with teriyaki sauce. The roast duck is tremendous -- tender and
plentiful with apple-based stuffing and a choice of orange glaze or
gravy. After sampling the excellent homemade deserts like apple crisp
or carrot cake, head down some narrow, creaky stairs and you'll find a
candle-scented, old-fashioned gift shop with stone floors and
comforting music in the background. Whether serving as the center of a
New England day or a sidebar to exploring largely rural north central
New England and the Mohawk Trail, the 1761 Old Mill represents true,
traditional New England dining and scenic beauty, perhaps better than
any restaurant in Massachusetts.
