- Old Village Post HouseFirst to ReviewJul 05, 2012
When I first stayed here, I arrived at the same time as a tropical storm. It was with great relief when I blew into the front door and was warmly greeted by a friendly, caring staff. I thought it must have been how travelers of old felt about “post houses,” that if the ‘coach would just get them there, that they would be safe, warm and dry and well fed. Recently, the inn had the same feel-good spirit. The tavern, a fine restaurant and courtyard are downstairs, the sleeping rooms one flight up, and above the larger suites. Think of an old New England inn, circa 1888, set in a quaint southern village, homes with large verandahs lining the shady, main street, American flags flying. This is the social center of a genteel town, just over the bridge from the Historic District. A lively Happy Hour animates the convivial tavern and food is farm fresh, yet innovative – Carolina cuisine contemporized. Seafood dominates, like shrimp bisque, lump blue crab and avocado salad with a benne seed vinaigrette, sausage stuffed quail, pan-fried hogsnapper, boiled peanut ragout, fresh peach and berry crusted cobbler…O’ mama!
