The Red Lion’s Courtyard - Stockbridge, Massachusetts

The pebbled courtyard nestled behind the venerable Red Lion Inn is a quiet oasis steps from the throngs of tourists on Main Street. With colorful impatiens planted everywhere, it has the pleasant air of an old-money country club that has opened its doors to the public. There’s WiFi so you can check your email (and consult Rural Intelligence) while having a glass of wine or a beer at an umbrella table. The price of admission is easy: During lunch, you’ll get a satisfying burger ($16) - your choice of grass-fed beef or house ground turkey topped with sharp cheddar or Bayley Hazen blue cheese.  While the menu has salads like Berry Patch Farm bibb lettuce with raspberries, pistachios & cucumber cilantro vinaigrette ($12), we wish there were an old-fashioned Cobb or Chef’s salad on the menu for the genuine country-club experience. Open seasonally, May-September, weather permitting.

30 Main St., Stockbridge, MA
(413) 298-5545
Lunch daily: 12 - 4 p.m.
Dinner daily: 5:30 - 9:30 p.m.
