I really enjoyed my meal, in front of the roaring fireplace, at Old Tavern. The rustic feel and whimsy of the old barn made the food just taste better somehow! The full bar was well stocked, and had many local spirits to try. Just lovely.

The setting and staff are what make this dining experience special for me. They accommodated my elderly mother who uses in a walker and they were completely gracious. The food was very good and I highly recommend the cheddar ale soup!

We enjoyed both our stay and our dinner at this old Inn. My 2 nd most favorite Inn. Service was great and food fresh and delicious. A great little village to visit. Very relaxing.

There are many different types of dishes at the Old Tavern Inn so be prepared to experience some fine dining in this small little town. The food is very good but it does come at a little bit of a premium but it is well worth it. The staff is very friendly and very accommodating.

Amazing room - inside of a converted barn. They have live music sometimes in there and there is a huge fireplace with some comfy chairs if there is a wait for a table. Food has always been great on each visit. Top tier cuisine in an elegant but rustic atmosphere. Wait staff is helpful and diligent. Because of the high... More

The food here is local, fresh and delicious. What more could you ask for? The setting is quintessential New England elegance. You could easily imagine yourself being transported 200 years back in time, save the electricity. I cannot recall eating in a more tranquil locale.

My wife and I had dinner in the restaurant on November 11, and I must say that the quality and quantity of food was excellent. The waitress(Joanne) was very professional and friendly. The new chef is certainly an great addition to the Inn.

The Old Tavern at Grafton, formerly Grafton Inn in the often proclaimed New England Quintessential Village makes it a very special setting. Just staying at the beautiful inn and dining in its bistro makes it extraordinary. Make no mistake the food was really delicious and the service great. The ambience and decor was terrific. My only reservation is the lack... More
