Belford Bistro

No matter which geographical direction you choose—including good old American grilled, crispy chicken; rustic lamb ragoût; and Berkshire pork tenderloin—everything sparkles. So do desserts, which the chef/owners share in making. Cheesecake French style means light and delicious. It would suffice on its own merits but here is heightened with a lacy almond brittle and an exceptionally intense passion-fruit sauce

Deep Cut Gardens

Deep Cut Gardens is their crown jewel. Meticulously cared for landscaping that seamlessly flows from season to season. The gardens also include a koi pond, Japanese garden and traditional English rose garden. A lovely place to visit.
