Fish Fridays at The English Inn

March 12th, 2012 by insideout

The tradition of eating fish on Fridays may have originated during Lent, but it was such a good idea that these days, Fish Fridays are enjoyed by everyone throughout the year.

It’s possible to eat fish any night of the week at The English Inn, our Lansing area fine dining restaurant. Still, in the spirit of Lent, we invite one and all to enjoy Fish Fridays. In the coming weeks, we’ll be featuring special fish dishes for special prices. Last week, we served Chef Jon’s Sole Menuiere. Yum.

It’s feeling more and more springlike out there, and flowers are popping up all over the grounds of our Lansing area restaurant and inn. We look forward to once again serving meals on our terrace.

In the meantime, we invite you to celebrate Lent with Fish Fridays at The English Inn. The word “lent” is derived from the Old English word for Spring, or the lengthening of days; and people of all faiths can all come together to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Time for a Romantic Dinner

February 13th, 2012 by insideout

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, meaning it’s time for a romantic dinner.

Romantic Lansing area restaurant

The English Inn is ideal for romantic Valentine's Day dinners.

If you love to cook, perhaps you’re planning to wow your lover with an amazing home cooked meal. Perhaps you’re planning to take the afternoon off to prepare his or her favorite dishes. Perhaps you’re at the market right now, shopping for the freshest ingredients you can find.

Then again, maybe you just want to be able to enjoy a romantic dinner with your lover, without having to hop up and serve it. Maybe you don’t like to cook. Maybe Valentine’s Day should be special for both of you.

Maybe you should look into dinner at The English Inn.

Let us prepare a feast for you at our Lansing Michigan fine dining restaurant. Sip wine from our award winning wine list. Share a plate of Caviar. Dive into a bowl of Lobster Bisque. Try our Stuffed Quail, or Duck Cassoulet, or simply delicious Classic Filet Mignon. Dare we even mention dessert?

The English Inn is elegant. It can turn any day into a special day, and a special day into an unforgettable one.

Happy Valentine’s Day.



Two Dine for $42 Near Lansing

January 12th, 2012 by insideout

Dining out at a good restaurant is one of the great joys in life, at least for us. To eat good food without having to prepare it is heavenly.

Dinner can be both outstanding and affordable at The English Inn.

Yet we all know that dining out can get expensive. Each of us deals with that in our own way: some of us dine out less frequently; some of us share entrees; some of us forego wine with our meals; and some of us wait for dining specials.

As avid foodies, we want people to be able to enjoy gourmet food and an accompanying wine in a lovely setting. That’s why we’re offering a Two Dine for $42 special through February 9, 2012.

Call a good friend or grab your spouse and head to our Lansing area Fine Dining Restaurant, The English Inn. Our special includes two salads, two entrees, and a bottle of wine. Can you believe that? As we know, a bottle of wine alone can cost more than $42.

It’s January, and there is still no snow on the ground. The holidays are behind us, and it seems a long time until the next special occasion. It’s easy to feel a little glum at this time of year.


Instead, treat yourself and a friend to a great meal at The English Inn, our Lansing area fine dining restaurant. Linger over dinner, enjoying good conversation and excellent food, and feel good about it. After all, you’re worth it.

Celebrate New Year's Eve with a delicious meal at The English Inn.

If you like to celebrate the arrival of the new year with good company and excellent food, consider spending New Year’s Eve at our Lansing Michigan restaurant. You can come as you are or you can dress your finest. You can tuck into perfectly prepared steak, poultry, or seafood. You can sip fine wine, and toast the arrival of 2012 with champagne.

Our Eaton Rapids Fine Dining Restaurant was recently reviewed by Dine Michigan. We are pleased to note that our reviewer and his companions were thrilled with their meals. They tried our Escargot, our Duck Sausage, and our Mushroom Caps. They tucked into our Classic Filet Mignon, our Lobster Stuffed Walley, and our Duck Cassoulet. They finished with Crème Brulée, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake, and White Chocolate Mango Mousse. Read the full review at Dine Michigan.

We strive to create a comfortable environment, so our diners can focus on each other and savor the food. We let the elegance of the historic Tudor mansion speak for itself. The English Inn is a wonderful setting for special occasions: weddings, anniversaries, birthday celebrations, and New Year’s Eve.

Join us at The English Inn on December 31, 2011, and raise a glass to the best of 2011, and the new year to come.

Host Your Holiday Party at The English Inn

December 5th, 2011 by insideout

It’s that time a year once again; let the holiday office parties begin!

Host your Holiday Party at grand Medovue Hall.

This year, instead of perching on desks and huddling around copy machines at the office, head to The English Inn. Our Lansing area fine dining restaurant is the ideal place for any work party, whether your business is comprised of ten people or two hundred.

We have several banquet and meeting rooms. Occupy one room or several, as you need:

* The Oxford Room is a warm space with a large stone fireplace. Seats 16.

*The Thames Room features three walls of leaded-glass windows overlooking our gardens and the Grand River. Seats 24.

*The Midford Room overlooks our formal gardens, which are lovely even when draped with snow. Seats 32.

*The Devonshire Room is elegant and understated, with mahogany paneled walls and a black marble fireplace. Seats 50.

*Medovue Hall is a grand ballroom with two chandeliers, mirrors, tapestries, and large arched windows overlooking the estate. Comfortably holds 50, 75, or up to 200 guests.

Many office parties gather simply for appetizers and drinks. Imagine tucking into Tarte Flambé, a disk of baked puff pastry filled with Italian cream cheese and topped with bacon and caramelized onion. Spinach Puffs, Chicken Rumaki (marinated chicken breasts on skewers), Foie Gras… these are some of the offerings you’ll find at our Lansing Michigan Restaurant. Complete lunches and dinners are available as well.

Holiday parties are a great way to create a positive atmosphere at work. They’re a way of showing your employees how much you appreciate them.
