Welcome to The Shoreham Inn! Come on in and have a look around our website. We look forward to having you as our guest overnight, for dinner, or both! Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions – please don’t hesitate to get in touch if your question isn’t answered.
First things first, we are proud of having Green Hotel status thanks to the hard work of several people here at the Inn, and an ongoing commitment to the environment and what we can do to do our part.
Secondly, since our mothers don’t have access to our website, we’ll have to do our own bragging:

” …the Shoreham is a favorite spot of bikers. Plop down in one of the Adirondack chairs with a glass of locally made Switchback Ale on tap and you immediately understand the attraction after a day of biking….Dominic Francis showed off his culinary skills that evening….” Boston Globe June 2, 2013
“Smoke wafted from the chimney, and two benches in front sat empty. I opened the red front door and to my surprise, about a dozen people were inside, waiting for dinner and sipping wine. The warm smell of comfort food wafted from the restaurant. The inn was exactly what I had imagined: creaky wooden floors, wood-beamed ceilings and a living room with cozy couches and a piano.” New York Times October 18, 2009
“The Shoreham Inn has an excellent restaurant. The menu changes frequently, but has included top-notch burgers, whole baked fish and an array of interesting desserts such as Banoffi pie, a banana, cream and toffee concoction” Wall Street Journal July 16, 2009
Breakfast is usually served from 7:30 – 9:30am. If you would like breakfast earlier or later, do not hesitate to ask and we will do our best to accommodate you. There is coffee and tea available downstairs after 6:30am. If you have any special dietary requirements, let us know. If you are here visiting friends or family and would like to have them join you for breakfast please let us know, we’d be happy to serve you all. There would be a $10 per person supplement for extra breakfasts.
As you can see on the Gastropub page, our pub is open for dinner Thursday – Monday nights. If you are planning to stay with us Tuesday or Wednesday nights, we would be happy to get you drinks and snacks while you are here. If you would be interested in having dinner on those nights we can recommend some great restaurants in the area. Alternatively, if you would like to discuss the possibility of having dinner cooked for you here, this will need to be planned for when you make your reservation.
Occasionally guests bring their own alcohol to the Inn. Because we are a licensed premises, we cannot allow you to drink your own alcohol in the public spaces during the hours that the pub is open to the public.
