Horned Dorset Inn reopens May 9

LEONARDSVILLE — The Horned Dorset Inn, on State Route 8 about five miles south of Route 20, reopens May 9following a year-long hiatus that allowed the inn’s owners to establish a new artists’ residency program in the hamlet.

For reservations, call 855-7898 or email the inn at Horneddorsetinn@gmail.com.

The menu features classical French cuisine with Aaron Wratten returning as executive chef from The Horned Dorset Primavera, that his father, Kingsley, and family friend and business associate Harold Davies developed in Puerto Rico, in 1987 as an extension of their inn here.

Harold and Kingsley have owned and operated the original inn since it first opened in 1977.
