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.

1801 Tavern

Make reservations and treat yourself to dinner at the 1801 Tavern (formerly the Old Tavern Restaurant). Chef Cal Hingston and his team proudly offer exciting seasonal menus packed with bold flavors sure to please every palate.


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.


Pine Room Bar

Pull up a chair at our Vermont-chic bar, located within the 1801 Tavern. The Pine Room Bar serves delicious Vermont craft beers, local and traditional spirits, and upscale wines by the glass alongside the 1801 Tavern menu.
