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

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.
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 30-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 24th 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.
