Oldwick is in the heart of the Hunterdon County horse country, and the Tewksbury Inn is at the center of this 18th-century historic district. The Inn is a former stagecoach stop where the 21st-century traveler can enjoy the traditional friendly tavern atmosphere with fine food that reflects wide ranging influences. In 2008 the Tewksbury Inn began opening on Mondays for the first time and those who join us have been in for a real treat: Our entire wine list at half price. Our exquisite food deserves pairing with an equally great wine and at this value, we think you will agree.

The hamburger tasted like a salt shaker had been emptied on it, the coffee was served and it was cold by the time he brought milk for it. The cappuccinos were served 5 to 10 minutes apart from each other and two were in cool glass mugs and one in a regular coffee cup and one in the glass mugs was only half full. Unacceptable. Did t want to mention as didn’t want to ruin a special lunch for all. Waiter did not inquire as to how things were at any point. I have been here many times and enjoyed but this was a disappointment. All other food and ambiance was great.

Good food, attentive staff and fair prices. Portions are large. The entrees we ordered we're over-spiced. The pasta had an overwhelming taste of Tarragon and the french fries that came with the steak were dominated by a garlic flavor. The ribeye steak was excellent. The noise level is high, to be sure, and the crowd seemed to be enjoying themselves. However, it made conversation a bit challenging.

My family and I have eaten at the Tewksbury Inn two times. Both times were exceptional - both in terms of the food (which is delicious, and good portions) and the spectacular ambience and great service. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to a friend!

The Tewksbury Inn is very consistent with their quality of food and service. The entire staff is excellent. They are always raising the bar in the restaurant industry. The owner is very compassionate making your time at the Tewks be a very pleasurable experience.

very nice and inviting atmosphere with old country expressions. menu is limited to mostly fish or meat with added compliments. One should read and understand the menu before ordering and make sure what is included in their selection. very nice food presentation and service was excellent. It is a very open seating with good lighting and they have a fine wine and beverage list to chose from. Parking in the rear with no problem. none busy streets and friendly people.

Food is always great but service was very poor. Unfortunately our server took an excessive amount of time taking our orders. After 2 hours we still were not offered the opportunity for dessert. This is the first time I’ve ever experienced such poor service.

Great meal! Recommended by a friend and was a home run. Mine and daughter’s birthday dinner. The duck confit shepherds pie and butternut squash soup were very good. Had the Filet Mignon au poivre and enjoyed by all. Desserts were great as well. Service was spot on. Made the day special!!

My husband and I go to the Tewksbury Inn for just about every special occasion. The service is great, we recently went for our anniversary and we were offered champagne while we waited for our table! Great food, cozy ambiance...I highly recommend!

The kitchen seemed overwhelmed on Sunday evening. Server seemed super rushed and abrupt. Soup came out with appetizers. My first entree was completely cold and and had an overly sweet sauce, the second was missing ingredients. They comped the entree for me which was good but everyone commented that the quality of the food was not what we expected given the small portions and price point. Mediocre food and service at best.

We had not been to the Tewksbury Inn for many years so we didn't know what to expect. I can say that everything about our lunch/brunch exceeded our highest expectations! The menu gave us lots of options. The meals we selected were wonderful and the service could not have been more pleasant or accommodating. We would highly recommend Tewksbury Inn for lunch or for dinner.

The outdoors bartender was efficient, amiable and attentive. The calamari was overdone and rubbery, but the rest of the meal was good. The salmon salad, the tuna wrap, and the salmon appetizer were tasty.

We went for our anniversary and had not been to Tewksbury Inn in several years. They didn't disappoint. The service was outstanding and the food was terrific. Cooked to perfection. They have a nice varied menu plus daily specials. We ate in the main dining room which is very quaint. The noise level got a little high due to a large party being sitter next to us, but still a very enjoyable dinner.

I have been coming to The Tewksbury Inn with my family for years. My mother and I came by for dinner this past Saturday and had a wonderful evening. The ambiance is always something we look forward to and we really enjoyed our meal. I will say though, that the service was mediocre and the noise level too high on the upper floor where we were seated. There was a very loud and large party in the same room as us and at one point it became difficult to hear my Mother speak. The guest sitting next to us also agreed it felt a little inconsiderate given that most of the tables looked like they were set for deuces and quiet conversation.

Nonetheless, we enjoyed our meals and had a nice evening once the large party left.
We will be back but perhaps something to consider as feedback.

Warm Regards,
Morgan W.

Start to finish great meal. Waiter Nickolas was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Food was delicious. And after leaving my credit card behind, Ashley went the extra mile and used my OpenTable reservation to call me directly and let me know it was there and being held for me. Thanks again.

Went for lunch with another couple. Food,service and table were great. I only wish the dining room was open/-we ate in the bar. As usual though- most everything was first rate. Very comfortable and they did not rush us through our meal. We will be back.

Building is old and looks to be experiencing deferred maintenance. The food was along the same lines as the ribs seemed microwaved to me.
