“Charming, consistent quality, and great service.'”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

We had dinner with our son-in-law, daughter, and two rambunctious grandsons at the Grafton Inn. The setting is charming, the menu varied, and food was delicious, including the gluten-free chocolate cake for dessert. We had eaten there about a dozen years ago for our anniversary and were delighted that the quality hadn't slipped at all in the intervening years. It is well-worth a trip to Grafton, VT

“Great atmosphere, good food!”

Had a nice meal at the tavern on the Friday night of our visit in December. The food is always very high quality, local when possible and very fresh.

“Lovely food in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 1 January 2013 via mobile

Here's what I liked about dining at the Old Tavern: perfect portion size, not too big, not too small......creative and exciting menu....the scallop appetizer was exceptional....the dining room is perfect in every sense....a warm welcome by the Innkeepers, who circulated the room to make everyone feel like family. Here's what let me down (just a little): the chocolate pecan tart did not seem fresh....the service was warm and friendly, but not quite attentive enough...one felt as if some cooking corners had been cut to accommodate the large crowd (New Year's Eve)....the coffee at breakfast was a bit weak.
Overall, given the amazing setting of the Grafton Inn, the dining experience at the Old Tavern is quite satisfying...and, it seemed, so said all.

“Delicious, gourmet meals!”
Reviewed 24 December 2012

Dinners and breakfasts at the Grafton Inn were fantastic ... friendly, accommodating service staff, delicious dinners, amazing breakfasts, and a quiet, intimate setting in the dining room or a casual, comfortable option at the Phelps Barn.
