The Dining Experience

At the Inn at Weathersfield, we’re passionate about two things – creating great food made from farm-fresh ingredients for a true Vermont culinary experience.

We offer  a fine dining a la carte and tasting menus as well as a small tavern menu. As part of the guest room rate, we offer  table-side  breakfast service ( inn guests + guests of theirs with advance notice @ $12 pp), and one of the most diverse working wine cellars – recipient of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator Magazine for 12 years and running.

Green Granite Wednesdays – Show us your Vermont or New Hampshire Drivers’ License and we’ll give you 10% off your food bill. No coupons. No hassles. No brainer.

Live Music Friday Nights - From 7 pm to 9 pm, we feature a local artist throughout the year on nearly every Friday night. Typically, it is one musician/vocalist on either piano or guitar. During the warmer  months, we move outside on our deck where we offer our complete menu.

Walk-ins Always Welcome, but Reservations Preferred (especially on weekends and always with parties of 5 or more). Please call  (802) 263-9217.

Please note, due to our intimate size, for parties of six or more, we require a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) to hold the dinner reservation. In the event that you need to cancel, we ask that you do so more than 24 hours before your reservation (two weeks if during Fall Foliage Sept. 24- Oct. 19 and holidays) as late cancellations and no-shows will be charged $25 per person.


Our Dining Room

Fodor’s 2013 Travel Guides calls The Inn at Weathersfield “One of Vermont’s best restaurants, a culinary gem inside an 18th-century countryside inn.”

What they forgot to mention is the inn is tucked in the woods at the end of a driveway. 

Look for the sign in the meadow by the pond and turn at the second open sign hanging from the lamp post at the end of the driveway.

Inside, you’ll dine with a backdrop of rustic barn boards, stone fireplaces and local artwork.

Executive Chef Jean-Luc Matecat, a native Vermonter and son of a Parisian chef, highlights what’s made in-house or sourced fresh from our farms and local food purveyors on our tasting menu. Our Fall Foliage a la carte menu is available Wednesday through Sunday in our Dining Room and Tavern, and in the warmer months, on the deck. From Sept. 24-Oct.19, our Fall Foliage A La Carte Menu is available every night of the week.

On Thursday through Sunday,  we  offer our  IW 5-Course Tasting Menu in the dining room, tavern, and on the deck in warmer months. Our Tasting Menu changes weekly based on what meats, fish and produce the chef selects. With advance notice, we can observe most allergies or aversions. We can also offer a vegetarian tasting menu with advance notice.

Our only requirement when ordering our tasting menus is that all guests at the table participate.

Here is our Fall Foliage 2014 final menu

Please note that Alpaca is now on our menu. We’re thrilled to partner with Cas-Cad Nac Farm in Weathersfield. The meat tastes like a lean beef. Here’s a link to how it compares “health wise” to other meats: CCNF Alpaca meat comparison

For the true foodies looking for a unique experience, please ask your server about the  7-course tasting, “The IW Ultimate Experience.”

We also offer wine pairing suggestions.

In our tavern, we offer the a la carte menu, tasting menus, as well as a small tavern menu. The tavern menu is not available in the dining room.

Children as Dinner Guests  – We love children. We also know that children don’t always want to eat what’s on the menu. So we offer plain pasta or with a red sauce or grilled cheese at $12 each. We can also offer a small soup or salad for children under 12 years of age at $6 each.W

Please note:

  • We don’t offer children’s menus when ordering the tasting menu.
  • We have wooden high chairs for use in the tavern or on the deck (weather permitting) only – not in the dining room.

Walk-ins always welcome, reservations preferred (802) 263-9217 or email us at

Parties of six or more require a credit card to hold the reservation. If cancelled less than 24 hours from reservation (or two weeks if during Fall Foliage Sept. 24-Oct. 19 and holidays) or do not show, we charge $25 per person.
