Warfield House Restaurant Reopens
CHARLEMONT, Mass. — The grill's getting fired up at the Warfield House Inn after being cold for nearly three years.
Pam Gerry, one of the managers, said the restaurant's reopening will take advantage of a lot of the activity taking place along the rivers and mountains in the area.
"With the new zip line and the kayaking, there's a lot going on here," said Gerry. "We had reason to reopen it."
The restaurant has a full bar and wine list and two dining rooms overlooking Berkshire East and some of the 530 acres of Valley View Farm. It's about a half-hour drive from North Adams.
The kitchen wasn't completely closed since the inn has continued to serve functions such as weddings and parties. Warfield and the farm host "Your Wedding Your Way" with overnight accommodations in the seven rooms at the bed & breakfast at the Main House and Whippoorwill Lodge's five bedrooms.
The farm has an outdoor pavilion that can hold 200 guests, gardens and gazebo for a wedding ceremony. It includes a water garden, maple house, antique sawmill and a functioning farm with horses, cows, chickens, llamas, goats and ducks, along with Mollie, the farm's border collie.
Gerry said the restaurant's new Chef Adrian hails from Georgia and brings old-fashioned Southern barbecue to the New England setting along with an emphasis on local produce from the farm, including meat and dairy.
"We are looking forward to having the restaurant open again," she said. "It needs some loving and people to get it alive again."
The grand opening will be held on Friday, June 4, at 5. Hours are Fridays from 5 to 9, Saturdays from 11 to 9 and Sundays from 10 to 3.
