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

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.



Go Spartans!

Touchdown MSU!


Fall means the return of rain in the Pacific Northwest and brilliant foliage in New England. It means relief from extreme heat in the southeast and southwest, and it means shorter days and longer nights in Alaska. Yet all across the country, north to south, east to west, fall also means football. And that’s a good thing.

Our Lansing, Michigan, Bed and Breakfast sits in the backyard of Michigan State University (figuratively speaking, of course). Each fall, we welcome the return of the Spartans with open arms. Each September, we clear our throats and get ready to cheer for the MSU Football Team.

The Spartans have had nothing but wins so far this year. They walloped Youngstown State 28-6, and they crushed Florida Atlantic 44-0. This Saturday, we’ll face stiffer competition at Notre Dame. We feel optimistic.

Many families stay with us or dine at our Lansing Restaurant while in town to drop off their students. For some, we’re as much a part of the “Back to School” tradition as packing the car. Their victories are our victories, their defeats our defeats.

We hope to see many fans at our Lansing pub to celebrate a victory after the game on Saturday, and in the coming months. Go Spartans!

One of the great joys of life is enjoying a pint or two with friends on a warm summer night.

The best part of summer - outdoor dining at our Lansing Restaurant.

There may be no finer place to enjoy those pints than our Lansing Michigan fine dining restaurant or pub. The English Inn Pub is an authentic British pub; that means the beer is good, the food satisfying, and the atmosphere ideal for fostering camaraderie and good cheer. Our Lansing fine dining restaurant is both elegant and casual – a great place to dress for dinner and then relax.

Step into the cool shade of the pub for a game of darts and pithy conversation. Sit on our patio under the shade of tall trees and dine at our restaurant. Bring your closest friends, your spouse, your parents, or all of the above and celebrate the arrival of our long-awaited summer by raising your glasses.
