Phelps Barn Pub

Our more casual dining option, the Phelps Barn Pub offers up a delicious menu of pub fare with a Vermont twist. Originally a carriage house for guests’ horses, today we honor the barn’s rustic past by providing a unique Vermont dining experience for our own guests. Even the hay loft has been repurposed and renovated, providing an elevated seating area as well as our 8-tap bar serving the best of Vermont’s craft beer and local spirits. Love eating outside? Visit us during the warmer months to grab a table in the Courtyard. *Please note: The Phelps Barn Pub is closed for private functions most Saturdays. Please call in advance.

Plan a visit during one of our weekly dining events, like Burger & Brew Thursdays.
