Eatery

Merridale’s Eatery is where all of our offerings come together sumptuously: outstanding food, drink and ambiance. Overlooking the orchard meadow, our Eatery offers casual comfort food and British pub-style counter service. We are fairly casual at the Eatery. Come up to the bar to order and we’ll take care of you. Then sit back, relax, and we’ll bring everything to you. We are very passionate about our craft and love to talk about it! If you’d like to know which cider or cocktail pairs well with your food choice, please ask.

Our menus feature our own homemade sauces, cider-leavened bread and fresh pastries baked in a brick oven. That same oven is what we use to prepare delicious, handmade pizzas on our legendary Pizza Nights, held every Sunday in the summer months.

In the fall and spring, we regularly host themed dinners and other special events. For more on that, please visit our Events Page. We also offer a wide variety of delectables and other merchandise for you to take home. To find out how, click here. Our Eatery is open seven days a week and if you’d like to host a party, we can easily accommodate groups of 10 or more. In fact, we love parties – we sort of think they are our specialty. Join us on the deck, under the tents in the orchard, or rent the entire farmhouse or pond quarry. Please write to us here to let us know what you have in mind.
