Amazing Venue and Experience
If given the chance to have our wedding all over again (wouldn't that be fun!), we would choose the General Warren Inne every single time. From the moment we booked the venue a year ago to the day after our wedding, we felt completely taken care of. We chose to have a small wedding (~60 people) and do a Saturday brunch. The space was perfect for this size. Both the outdoor ceremony space and indoor spaces are wonderful. Patrick, the proprietor of the GWI, was absolutely amazing. He and his incredibly professional staff were constantly on point. Communication was great and we were never worried about something not going right. Also, our cake was amazing, made by their in-house pastry chef Andy. He did a gorgeous job. We kept the bud vases with fresh flowers and candles that their florist does as our centerpieces rather than getting our own, and they looked perfect. Our guests are still raving about the day and so are we! Thank you GWI!Sent on 11/06/2019

Wonderful Venue for Rehearsal and Dinner!
We hosted a recent wedding rehearsal and dinner at the GWI for our son and daughter-in-law. We had over 2 dozen guests from out of town and this was our first experience dining at this establishment. From the first conversation with Patrick about the planning of the actual rehearsal on the grounds to choosing a customized menu for our event with Tim we were met with a pleasant, accommodating experience! Our guests were very pleased with the beauty of the grounds and restaurant... we had a lovely private cocktail reception on the beautiful outdoor Spring House terrace (the girls just loved the darling little stone house beside the terrace!) which became the site for a number of photos. Our bartender was very friendly and kind as were the ladies who served such delicious appetizers as the prime rib fingers and the garlic/fennel sticks with lobster cream sauce.Sent on 07/20/2019
Afterwards, we all ascended upstairs to dine in the bright and airy North Room which overlooks the terrace area and our guests were very impressed with their starters (particularly the snapper turtle soup and the french onion bisque...just amazing!)
Our guests loved all the generously portioned entrees, including the grilled swordfish with blueberry salsa and filet mignon as well as the Jaeger Schnitzel, asparagus and mushroom risotto and the wonderful pan seared scallops.
And no one turned turned down a chance to sample the lovely assortment of desserts including chocolate and raspberry mousses as well as sorbet and ice cream...so yummy!
We would like to thank our wonderful waitress Celeste, who was a joy to work with...so calm, pleasant and personable, for providing us with a memorable experience that we will remember for years to come.
The bride and groom loved it so much that they are planning on returning for their first anniversary!
All in all, I highly recommend the General Warren for a welcoming experience in a charming, tasteful setting with a great staff and delicious food and spirits!
