The English Inn is excited to announce that we’ll be once again opening our doors for indoor dining on February 1st, 2021! Michigan state’s latest pandemic order, which goes into effect February 1st, eases restrictions on indoor dining at restaurants – and we’re more than ready!
We’ve been very grateful for all the wonderful people who have supported us throughout this last year. The response to our To-Go Menu, Outdoor Conservatory Dining, and Guest Room Delivery dinners has been fantastic.
That being said, like everyone, we’re quite excited to see a return to indoor dining!
Of course, it’s not a 100% return to normal but a necessary baby step. Though there is now enough light at the end of the tunnel to partially illuminate the dining room, we’re not out of the woods yet!
This new Michigan State order is set to last three weeks, until Sunday, February 21st, 2021. With any luck, things will look even rosier then and we’ll see a further loosening of health and safety restrictions.
Indoor Dining at The English Inn
The English Inn Restaurant will be open for indoor dining, seven days a week, starting February 1st, 2021. It’s not a full opening, however, and we will continue to observe all state health and safety guidelines. These include:
- 25% indoor capacity, maximum 4 guests per table
- masks required when not eating/drinking
- employees will wear masks at all times
- all tables/chairs sanitized between guests
- frequent cleaning of touch points throughout restaurant
- hand sanitizer on each table
- social distancing of tables
- plexiglass at host desk
- screening of staff members daily
The English Inn Pub remains closed due to capacity restrictions. Private parties are limited to a max of 10 people, from up to two households, at multiple tables.
In-Room, To-Go, and Outdoor Dining, Too!
The outdoor Conservatories on our terrace have been extraordinarily popular! These lovely, individual greenhouses have vents and doors for airflow, heaters to keep you warm, and seat 2 to 6 people. The Conservatories are sanitized in between diners, with our masked servers staying outside except to deliver your meal. Reserve your English Inn Conservatory table.
Book an overnight stay at The English Inn and enjoy in-room dining! Your English Inn room rate includes a dinner of two house salads, two entrees, two desserts, and gratuity. Simply place your order by phone and your waiter will deliver your plated meals to just outside your door. Your breakfast arrives the same way. How’s that for safety and convenience?
Of course, we’re still accepting To-Go orders as well.
