The Wayside Inn has witnessed much in it's more than 300 years. Wars, plagues, economic depressions, have impacted lives in and around this fabled Inn. Our hearts go out to those most impacted by this current crisis. While we weather the storm, the staff and Board of Trustees will work to ensure that once this passes, and it will pass, we will pick up where we left off and continue the momentum of the last year. Although this current situation has drastically impacted the financial well-being of the Inn, we only ask that you continue to support us by ordering a meal or two to go or donate a meal (see below). Gift cards are also available for purchase for dinners to-go or for when we re-open the restaurant, here. Out of respect, we will not actively solicit donations at this time, but we welcome any contribution which can be made here. In the meantime, order a meal to go and browse the website. We will continue working during this time to develop more exciting programs as things improve and restrictions on gatherings are lifted.
You are invited to respectfully visit the grounds, but if you do so, please comply with the rules below.
We wish you and your friends and families all the best.
"Longfellow’s Wayside Inn in Sudbury was the top prize winner, taking home four awards, one each for Best Fine Dining, Best Romantic Restaurant, Best Local Tourist Attraction, Wedding Venue."
"This is a must-do kind of place if you are visiting in New England! The gracious, centuries old inn makes the most of its historic setting. The food is excellent and bountiful with an accent on New England favorites like, scrod, chowders, chicken pot pie, butternut squash and homemade bread basket. There is something for everyone with a special flavor of history mixed in. Reservations are encouraged."
"Step back into history and dine where Longfellow did...well, at least once. The front pub will give you an authentic feeling of what life was like back then and has a pub menu and great drinks. The rest of the restaurant is fabulous - excellent food and atmosphere, and vegetarian options as well. There are several rooms that have been left as they were and are museum quality. It's a pretty amazing place and people there, both staff and customers, were very welcoming."
