There are many restaurants in The Berkshires, offering all cuisines from Japanese, Italian, Mediterranean and French.
Blantyre sits in a remote area of the Berkshires, so you’ll need a car to go anywhere outside the grounds. The small town of Lenox is about 10 minutes away from the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. There, you’ll find locally owned pubs, restaurants, sandwich shops and ice cream stands. A 20-minute drive into Stockbridge will land you in a more populous area, where you’ll encounter chain restaurants as well as one of our favorite spots, the Barrington Brewery and Restaurant. When you want a break from Blantyre’s formal dining, go there to sip a pint — the brewery makes six to eight different beers each season — and to nosh on beer-infused fare, like cheddar ale soup or chocolate stout cake.
