Recently attended an event here. Food was good and the venue is very nice. Service at one of the makeshift bars that was setup was a bit off and slow. Other than that, very nice restaurant.

Every experience I have ever had at the cranbury inn reminds me to never go back again. Terrible food, presentation and decent service staff plus the pomposity of the owners is overwhelming
