It looks like a very exciting season ahead and we are hoping to visit soon. In the meantime, we visited the grounds on a foggy afternoon. It’s always lovely there. We appreciate being allowed access until the reopening. Timed tickets available here.
Stones Pub has decided to close temporarily. We are disappointed but understand the myriad of difficulties the current environment causes. Hoping to see you again soon!
You know when you go to a seasonal type place and it’s a mish mosh of thrown together servers and it’s just a bunch of predictable greasy fried food? Not at Mile Marker One. Not under the expertly trained staff of Patrick Hurd and Chef Wheels.
Dinner was on point! Hats off to the staff that could rest on it’s location alone but goes above and beyond with inventive dishes, expertly prepared and an excellent staff that is efficient and super friendly.
