About Clay Hill Farm: A bit of history and a bit of today. (Thanks to OGTtv!)

About Us

Originally built in 1780 as a working farm, Clay Hill Farm is now a 220-seat restaurant and special occasion venue nestled amidst 11+ acres of rolling lawns, protected woodlands, and colorful gardens.  Tranquility waterfall brooks, a pond, two generous garden-view decks and a picture-perfect gazebo, now accent the traditional Maine beauty of the Farm. With modern cuisine in a classic setting, Clay Hill Farm has become a popular dining destination in a country escape just 2 miles West of Ogunquit village. Clay Hill Farm has won numerous local, regional and national awards for food, ambiance and service. Voted #1 for weddings & romantic dining.

The original small farmhouse on the site of what is now Clay Hill Farm was built in 1780. The working family farm changed hands many times over the years, each new owner probably adding a room here and an outbuilding there.Rack_of_Lamb

In 1975, the gracious renovations complete, The Tavern at Clay Hill Farm opened its doors. People quickly heard of this jewel tucked away in the woods, and the restaurant was an instant hit. Expansion followed with the Veranda Room being added in 1977, and what is now the Foyer and Lounge enclosed in 1978. When the property was sold in 1983, new owners added the cozy Fireside Room.

Nestled on a portion of what has developed over the years into a 11-acre tree farm, Clay Hill Farm is the first restaurant, ever, to be cited for its conservation efforts by the National Wildlife Federation as a bird sanctuary and wildlife refuge.

As we begin our 28th year of ownership, our goal is to continue the tradition of fine food and service in the most elegant country setting in the seacoast area.
