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.

Meet Me at Phelps Barn

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.

Starting September 10, we will be serving lunch in Phelps Barn Pub on Saturdays & Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. From October 1 through October 16, we will be open daily for lunch.
