Tradition Meets Innovation
At Millwright’s Restaurant and Tavern in Simsbury, we want our guests to feel the restaurant is their home away from home, a gathering spot to enjoy inspired New England cuisine in a beautiful, historic setting. The from-scratch kitchen signals our culinary team’s commitment to sophisticated comfort food carefully crafted from locally-sourced ingredients.
Millwright’s has partnered with local farms that grow most of the organic produce used in the kitchen. The majority of their products are raised, harvested, or foraged from purveyors in New England and upstate New York. The changing nature of the harvest inspires Chef Tyler and his team to create new menus weekly. And as such, they are firm believers in knowing where the food they are serving comes from.
The setting, which provides a spectacular backdrop to the dining experience, speaks of history and nature. The Hop Brook Mill, built in 1680 and now Millwright’s home, overlooks a sparkling pond and rushing waterfall, visible from the dining room and the deck.
The tri-level space presents varied eating experiences: an elegant dining, a relaxed tavern and a unique event loft space. Its regional bill of fare is as diverse as the wine list and cocktail menu, all carefully chosen and developed to complement the cuisine. Our vast wine selection offer myriad choices, both in varietals and prices. Classic cocktails receive a flavor boost from seasonal and local ingredients. International, regional and local craft beers also were selected for their compatibility with food.
Millwright’s staff extends a warm welcome to all for a dining experience you will select—from elegant on the main floor to relaxed in the tavern—and looks forward to your next trip to the restaurant.
