We’re rapidly approaching the end of another year here at The English Inn Restaurant & Pub, our award winning, Lansing area B&B – and what a year it has been! 2022 went by in such a flash that it’s hard to believe we’re about to serve New Year’s Eve dinner! Looking back over the year, we’re reminded of all the wonderful guests and fun times we had and fills us with expectation for next year. What happy surprises will 2023 hold?
The English Inn Restaurant & Pub has provided top-notch, award winning restaurant and lodging service in the Lansing area since 1989, yet we never seem to tire of it. That’s because we absolutely love providing true comfort and relaxation to our guests.
Our Lansing area B&B is located on a historic, 15-acre estate just 20 minutes from the capital city. The inn, restaurant, and pub our housed in Medovue, a classic, Tudor revival mansion built in 1927 by the Reuters. The manicured grounds overlook the Grand River and are lush with groomed gardens and nature trails.
The English Inn restaurant is well known as one of the area’s finest, with an acclaimed wine list and paired gourmet meals. We’re also a coveted wedding venue, offering romantic, picture-perfect ceremonies on our sculpted grounds.
We also offer unparalleled, overnight accommodations in our historic inn. Overnight guests enjoy a full, complimentary Gourmet Breakfast. Fresh fruit and muffins baked from scratch in our kitchen, followed by quiche and other specialties – all fresh and prepared daily.
The English Inn Restaurant & Pub is more than just a Michigan bed and breakfast. More than just an award winning, Lansing-area restaurant. Our location on the historic 15-acre Medovue Estate, overlooking the Grand River in Eaton Rapids, MI qualifies us as a bona fide destination all on our own.
But don’t just take our word for it:
2022 at Lansing Area B&B
“It was American poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson that wrote “Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.”
Well, as much as I hate to admit I hate traveling to Michigan, to visit my in-laws, love them, hate Michigan, however, I would never miss an opportunity of staying in the most elegant and beautifully appointed English tutor style inn in America: The English Inn. Very historic, here since the 1930’s, full of gorgeous antiques, a different era awaits you.
The website tells you everything you need to know, its been very well documented, photographed, wrote about & many a famous people have stayed here. It’s 100 of the most romantic places to stay in America & the pub and restaurant is superb. Their beef Wellington is better than Gordon Ramsay’s. I highly recommend the beef Wellington. ALL the food exceptional, a divine experience indeed.
If you fancy a well appointed comfy British style vacation in America with tippy top food and drink, break out your James Bond tux, ladies, your fancy frocks and garb. Pack your black tie, lovely evening gowns to Fanny about, (you will want to keep it light makeup with no fuss soft flowing hair) head to the English inn for the romantic time of your life.
You don’t need your phone, you don’t need your computer, you don’t need your purse. You don’t need to leave the property. Leave all that behind. Think fancy but comfortable. Classic understated elegance. Relax, renew, regenerate, restore, remember why you fell in love.
Always the finest experience. It is always very bittersweet when it ends.
A magnificent place, A Gift of timeless beauty that is not to be missed.
Highly highly recommend.”

“We eat here every year during special occasion. Been a long time since we eat out after having a baby. This time is our anniversary and also anniversary of my sister in law too. The property is beautiful in the summer, lots of flowers. This time, I think they change the menu and this time everything looks good. Everyone ordered Beef Wellington (sorry I couldn’t capture any photo) except me, I ordered Apricot shrimp. I also ordered some lobster bisque while others ordered some cheese plates for appetizer. Overall, food and desserts this time are delicious. Very attentive & friendly waitress. Definitely will come back soon.”

“I stayed here about a year ago. During Covid. The Tangerine Suite was amazing, very clean comfortable and spacious. We had a wonderful time. I loved the grounds. Walking along the River was so peaceful. The restaurant was closed when we went there. But when we asked for a tour of the place they graciously accepted and showed us around their beautiful Inn. I cannot wait to go back and enjoy a wonderful meal, and stay in such beautiful surroundings.”

“I love the decorations of the place. The service was super, and food was delicious. I had half roasted duck and Escargot as my Starter, both were reminded me the dinner we had at Pairs. We will definitely be back again!”

“Great pub experience as part of the English Inn with a quaint English pub feel. We tried the fish and chips, which were very tasty, along with trying the Cornish Pasty which was excellent with tender beef, and fluffy pastry surrounding. Highly recommend experiencing this location if in the area.”
