About Grafton Dining

Savor farm-to-table cuisine

Casual Dining with a Delicious, Seasonally-Rotating Menu

The Grafton Inn is offering on-site dining on our beautiful property, between the Phelps Barn, Outdoor Courtyards and 1801 Tavern. Reservations are required for all dining spaces. Please use our online reservation system to check availability for your preferred date, time, and dining space.

If our dining calendar is grayed out it means we are either full for dining in all  outlets or closed for a private function.  Like many in the industry we are experiencing a shortage of staff and are seeking additional hands in our kitchen.  We want to ensure your dining experience is all of what you expect it to be here at The Grafton Inn. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

October Phelps Barn Hours:
Open seven days a week

Questions? Please call 802-843-2252 or email Katie Haseltine.

Please note: Unvaccinated guests dining with us are required to wear masks when dining with us.  This also includes children 12 and under.  Masks are required when going to your table and departing.  We take the health of our guests, staff, and community seriously and want to remain vigilant.

Our Safe Dining Policies

  • All seating is safely spaced 6 feet apart. There is no longer a limit on party size per table.
  • Reservations are required Thursday-Saturday evenings. On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, reservations are recommended and appreciated so we can staff appropriately.
  • Please do not ask for specific tables. While we always do our best, table preferences are difficult to accommodate due to the increasing volume of diners and our limited capacity.
  • Masks are required for unvaccinated patrons per the CDC guidelines. Vaccinated patrons will need to let us know when they fill out the reservation form that they are vaccinated.
  • No outside food allowed. Food items not prepared by the Grafton Inn staff are not permitted to enter our indoor dining spaces.
  • Please adhere to the time that you have set for your dinner reservation. Your table cannot be held or guaranteed for early or late arrivals. If you cannot make it for your reservation for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so we can release the table.
  • Staff will be wearing masks.
  • Hand sanitizer will be on your tables to ease your minds.

Same great menu, with your choice of ambiance! We have three casual dining spaces on our property that all share a delicious menu. You can rely on the Grafton Inn to consistently serve the heartiest, most thoughtfully prepared foods with an ingredients list that’s locally sourced (sometimes from our very own garden) and packed with flavor. Our talented team of chefs keep the seasonally rotating menus exciting and delicious, and we keep our bars stocked with the finest wines, Vermont spirits, and craft beers.
