Phelps Barn Pub

Phelps Barn Pub

Adjacent to the main inn, you’ll find Phelps Barn Pub, a southern Vermont restaurant serving pub fare and local brews in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Phelps Barn Pub: Southern Vermont Restaurant

A Southern Vermont Restaurant

Our more casual dining option, Phelps Barn at the Grafton Inn serves as the inn’s bar and pub. Just steps from the main inn, this southern Vermont restaurant was once a carriage house for guests’ horses. Now, we utilize this barn’s rustic past to provide a unique Vermont dining experience for our guests. Enjoy a burger and a local brew under Phelps Barn’s wooden beams or wander upstairs to the hay loft for a drink at our newly renovated bar.


Sunday-Thursday: 5-8 p.m.

Wednesday-Saturday: 5-9 p.m.
