We used to come here all the time, but it started to go down hill a few months ago. First, they switched to black plates, which is seriously weird. No restaurateur who knows anything about food chooses black plates. Secondly, many of our favourite staff seem to have been replaced by people who don't know what they're doing. The service... More

My wife and I met some other family members today for lunch at the Grafton Village Inn. This Inn has been around since the 1820's. I have dined there before but never with family members. We arrived at 1:30 P.M. and did not have reservations. Our wait time was about 15 minutes and then we were seated. It was quite... More

You haven't tried this place yet??? The food is AMAZING. The staff is very lovely and leave you alone - mostly because they are often too busy to bug you, but, I am certain they leave you alone to absorb the intoxicating,historical atmosphere.

The decor is reminiscent of a Vermont inn. The food is always great. The french toast is an incredible experience as it includes generous portions of seasonal fruits either stuffed inside or as a compote. It is also served with authentic maple syrup and whipped cream. The BLT includes camenbert and red pepper jelly. The salads are huge and delightful.... More

Beautiful quiet Inn, very friendly staff, decent food, not expensive. A nice stopover for lunch. They do not open for dinner, strange, as they offer accommodation and the closet restaurant's are in Cobourg, about 20 minutes away. This Inn would be wonderful for a wedding, beautiful period building and renovated church. Worth the visit if you are in the area.

Lovely building and quietly subdued - more than adequate brunch. Would and should make a wonderful dinner venue in this pretty spot. It's very Northumberland County - which is probably good! Cappacino machine often not working.

Love this little Inn, the decor is great and very spacious, great for groups to eat there, good brunch/lunch menu, the desert is to die for, pudding with rum sauce is a big hit. The town is small, not much to do, there is a few shops across the Esso, they have good stuff, stop in after brunch/lunch, you might... More

We went there one morning for just coffee to join some relatives who were having breakfast. One of our party ordered English Breakfast Tea and when our whole group of 13 people went there for breakfast the next day the waitress asked him if he would like that tea again. The server paid great attention to detail even to knowing... More

We stumbled upon the Grafton Village Inn and had lunch as we meandered our way along Lake Ontario (Hwy #2) from Trenton to Cobourg. What luck! The Inn itself is a charming old structure with four separate dining rooms that give you a sense of space and privacy, not to mention atmosphere. Our lunch was absolutely superb. The Chicken Curry...

Pretty and cosy little country inn, located on Heritage Highway 2, in the town of Grafton Ontario. It is a clean and comfortable place to stay. Food is good, but not much to see around town, unless you drive to Brighton and visit Presquile Provintial Park, which is famous for bird watching during migration times. Also nearby town of Cobourg... More
