Diner Reviews
  • "I've eaten here several times and enjoyed it every time. There are a variety of choices on the menu whether you are celebrating an important event or want a quick snack. Everything I've eaten was terrific and of the highest quality. The Granary is a special benefit of living in Fearrington Village."

  • "The food was delicious and beautifully presented, but the noise level made it difficult to carry on a conversation."

  • "The shrimp and grits at Crook's has always been the gold standard in this area, but Granary is in the running. A terrifically zingy version of this classic dish. Fried chicken and waffles...truly a great blending of breakfast and luncheon fare. Delicious food in a beautiful setting. A great Sunday brunch."

  • "I have always loved the Granary for its good food and ambiance, but recently I am finding the food too rich. I couldn't finish my meatloaf and red cabbage during my most recent visit because of the fat overload. My husband felt the same about his shrimp and grits. I think the quality is getting a little spotty. My friend's salad looked a little wilted from across the table and on this particular night I got some bread that didn't seem fresh. However, the service is friendly and helpful. I will return."

  • "Our server Jennifer was excellent. The staff overall was very accommodating. We arrived after a storm but they honored our request to sit on the patio and set it up again just for us. Our server Jennifer was highly attentive and professional. Food is always good and sometimes extraordinary. Our favorite close to eat spot."

  • "We just moved to the area from southern CT and my husband is a serious foodie so exploring options is serious business! We wanted to stay local to Chapel Hill and took family from Raleigh here as a thank you for helping us relocate. A first visit here for them as well and we were all thrilled to find the Granary is not only a lovely spot but that the menu is interesting and the food is terrific. Crab sausage with risotto was unique and satisfying. One serious meat eater, a vegetarian and a sweet tooth all found something that they would return for. Service was accommodating but not over bearing. All that and very reasonable prices. Can see this will become a spot we return to often."

  • "We make a reservation for brunch or lunch at the Granery every time we go to Fearrington Village. It is a very comfortable restaurant. The staff is friendly, the waiters and waitresses are very helpful, and every time we go there, we feel like we are "old friends". The food is very good and the menu is out of the ordinary -- full of delicious surprises."

  • "Hands down, this was the best dining experience we have had since moving to the Triangle Area 9 years ago. Lovely setting outdoors, attentive server, and vintage style music was a great touch. The food was outstanding. Our favorite was the Oyster Salad, with its crispy, juicy little fried oysters over greens that were tossed in a light, lemony dressing. We are recommending The Granary to everyone!"

  • "The Granary provides a very reliable dining experience. The variety of food offerings is great -- something for everyone from appetizers an small plates to larger entrees. Good and friendly service. A really comfortable environment in the always pleasant Fearrington Village."

  • "I recommend the beet salad, but rest assured, you'll be hungry in a few hours. It's a light salad, good for dieters. The hamburger looked divine and was quite large. The desserts sounded great, but we all resisted. Maybe next time! Good bread, but the waiters shouldn't ask if you want one or two pieces. I don't like saying I'll have too pieces since it makes me feel like a glutton!"

  • "My wife and I often go out for Sunday brunch. We arrived at our reservation (recommended) time of 12:15 pm and we were seated promptly. Our waitress brought water, coffee and menus immediately but didn't return to take our order for about 15 minutes. She was extremely busy working 5 or 6 tables in addition to ours. We ordered and there was no problem customizing our order substituting grits for potatoes. Then we waited about 20 minutes for our food to be prepared; the kitchen was very busy. The food was hot and excellent and we had several coffee refills and a great view of the cows and pasture from our table while we waited for our food. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Fearrington Granary for a leisurely Sunday brunch."

  • "We loved eating at the Granary for lunch on Saturday before heading to Raleigh for the James Taylor concert and then returned on Sunday for Brunch. The food was excellent and the service superb. We loved the ambiance of the downstairs dining room. Casual yet elegant! We also loved stopping in at the bookstore and learning that there is a real gem right next to the Granary. We will be back!"

  • "Had a hard time deciding what to order because so many of the dishes sounded great so we decided to order a few and share! The shrimp and girts was awesome ~ creamy and perfectly flavored with bacon and sausage. We also had the fried chicken breast ~ delicious breading with ranch to drizzle over it. Wow. The side of macaroni and buttery broccolini we the perfect compliment. Our youngest member ordered the sliders with some truffle fries ~ yum. yum. yum. They also have some great wine and beer choices. We loved everything and had a really nice evening overall."

  • "Have dined at Fearrington Granary many times for brunch but less frequently for lunch on a weekday. A friend treated me to a birthday lunch at the Granary on Thursday. What a great surprise to find they have a special summer menu whereby for a set price for either 2 or 3 courses you choose from 2 options for each course. We both opted for the 3 course and we both had the same entrée, which was Fried Calamari on a bed or Basil Risotto with olives, pesto and a hint of lemon. This entrée was simply amazing! Our starters and dessert choices were also stellar. We left vowing to return soon for weekday lunch. I highly recommend the Granary!"

  • "We eat here quite a bit and do like the Granary. But the food has been hit or miss. We've had a lot of really good dishes and some not so good. Last time my wife ordered the Chicken Carbonara and they forgot the chicken. They rectified it and it was very good then. The Bedford Burger is excellent. The atmosphere is nice and the service has always been very good."

  • "Our server wasn't very attentive, which detracted from our otherwise delicious and pleasant brunch at The Granary. We had to ask other restaurant staff to summon our server to take our orders after waiting for him to appear. He never told us about the specials, so we assumed there weren't any. This is the first time we've experienced poor service at The Granary, so perhaps the guy was just having a really bad day."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We had a nice evening at the Granary. The fried chicken, lobster and risotto, and shrimp & grits were delicious, but the meatloaf was disappointing. The waiter, Cody, was attentive and helpful. We are considering retiring in Fearrington Village in a few years and the Granary would be a nice neighborhood bistro for weekly family dinners."

  • "The service and food were great. However, when you walk upstairs you fee like you enter a time warp. We were there for a special occasion. We entered into a festive atmosphere which was what we were looking for during our first nights stay at the Inn. Our host then led us up to an upstairs area which was very quiet and tucked away. To be fair, I told them we were celebrating our anniversary, so maybe they were trying to provide a more intimate setting. The decor in the upstairs area was also very dated, no music for ambience, etc., it just felt very stale and boring. We really enjoyed the food and everyone was super friendly, but the whole time we felt like going back downstairs to join the party we could hear we were missing. :-)"

  • "I live in Fearrington and came here often when we first moved here and tried most of the dishes. Unfortunately the food is boring like hospital food. I check back every once in a while in the hope that the food has improved a bit. Not yet."

  • "Our meal, service, and overall experience were excellent, as usual! Congratulations to Phillip and the entire staff at The Granary for creating and maintaining such a wonderfully consistent, friendly, and delicious dining experience - whether brunch, lunch or dinner!"

  • "Do wait staff no longer check by their tables to be of service: for instance to provide water and beverage re-fills; inquire about dessert , and finally provide our check. We were basically ignored once our order was taken--thank goodness there was a kind hostess or we would never have gotten the little service we received--a $100+ check for 4 deserves better."

  • "Living in Fearrington Village, I often dine at the Granary and am always happy with the experience. This 4th of July I saw that several intriguing dishes have been added to the slowly changing menu, which benefits from the influence of the 5-star Fearrington Inn. The service is not the most professional, but always helpful and friendly. The ambience is fresh and cheerful. Worth coming back often."

  • "We went to celebrate an Anniversary and were not disappointed. Everything was very good. We enjoyed the meal, the server was very attentive. The noise level was the only thing that could have been better. We recently moved here from NJ and this will be a Restaurant that we will definitely be returning to for dining."
