Savor locally inspired American cuisine.
The Grafton Inn is famous for its imaginative cuisine, thoughtfully prepared with fresh locally sourced food and exploding with flavor. A hearty, healthful breakfast is included in your stay. Savor casual dining at the Phelps Barn Pub, or enjoy the candlelit ambiance of the Old Tavern Restaurant. Our knowledgeable service staff is eager to explain ingredients and methods, and to help you explore our cuisine with us.
A Kitchen Garden Grows
The Grafton Inn maintains a bountiful kitchen garden that supplies fresh, organic produce to inn’s restaurant. This pretty and practical garden boasts an impressive roster of vegetables, most of which are heirloom in variety. The garden does not handle all of the Grafton Inn’s vegetable needs, but it is able to offer delicious diversity and flexibility to the restaurant’s menu. Much of the garden’s fall harvest is kept in a cold cellar at the inn to use its bounty as long as possible.
