About Inn at Stratford Hall Restaurant:


In the early 1930s, Stratford began serving meals to the public on the lower floor of the Great House. In May 1937, a new Plantation Dining Room was opened adjacent to the Astor Guest House. Tragically, that structure survived less than a decade; it was destroyed by fire in 1944. The present Dining Room, with its handsome fieldstone fireplace and hardwood floor, was completed in 1951. An airy porch overlooking a wooded ravine was added in 1957 and enlarged 8 years later.

The charming and rustic plantation dining room serves a full lunch and dinner menu. See our website for our menu.

Private Parties

In addition to serving lunch and dinner to the public, our dining room is a regular venue for business retreats, rehearsal dinners, holiday parties, banquets and other catered events.
