Our Dining & Seating Options
The Main Dining Room
At Clay Hill Farm the Main Dining Room was the first addition to the original farmhouse and is reminiscent of a classic era. Surrounded by full-length windows that bathe the room in natural light, the Main Dining Room is an open space with comfortable velvet chairs and swiveling highbacks, overlooking the deck, the flowering trees and back growing/cutting gardens. We can seat up to 125 guests or 90 guests with a large hardwood dance floor. Up to 175 guests can be comfortably seated in the Main Dining Room when combined with the Veranda, with a dance floor center stage. Up to 220 guests can be seated at one time when combined with the Veranda and the Fireside Room.
The Veranda Room
This is a private dining area, popular for intimate candlelit dinners of up to 65 guests. Surrounded by twelve large French doors, The Veranda is the most requested space for groups that enjoy privacy and an indoor/outdoor flow- with access to a generous Mahogany cocktail deck. The Veranda overlooks the back gardens, and the nationally recognized bird sanctuary. Clay Hill Farm’s herb and vegetable gardens can be viewed from the deck as well, and the sound of the tranquility waterfall adds a peaceful touch. A small fireplace adds ambiance to the Veranda in the cooler months, and our LIVE theatrical dining experience in October: POE: Tales of Mystery & Suspense, transforms the Veranda into a Halloween theatre not to be missed!
The Fireside Room
The Fireside was added to the restaurant at Clay Hill Farm in 1982 and is a popular dining area for bird and wildlife enthusiasts. As many as 19 different bird species have been spotted at one dinner sitting. Warmed in the winter by a large stone-hearth fireplace, the Fireside Room makes for a cozy dining experience, year 'rpound. This dining room has private deck access with steps leading down to the garden and gazebo paths. Enjoy front garden views complete with a bird and squirrel show. The Fireside Room can seat up to 40 guests for a private dinner party, and is the cocktail/hors d'oeuvre space for private events that have reserved the entire facility.
Nightly LIVE entertainment (in-season), makes our lounge and bar area a popular spot for drinks, appetizers, dinner and after-dinner cordials. Our PUB NIGHTS, resuming in the late fall, pack the lounge with lovers of acoustic singer/songwriter music- enjoying a special $10 and under Pub Menu. The Lounge is a great place to start, or wind down, your Clay Hill dining experience- and a great place to just pop in to enjoy great food and goooood Live local music! (No cover)
Outdoor Dining, in season, is a delightful way to enjoy the beauty of Nature's Backyard. Dine surrounded by Clay Hill Farm's colorful gardens and lavish lawn on the picturesque deck overlooking it all...
