Peyton Place Restaurant is owned and operated by the Peyton Family. They have been in business since 1993 with humble beginnings in Bradford, VT before the purchase of The Mann Tavern House circa 1773 in Orford NH. in 2002. The original Tavern Room is still in operation as one of 2 dining rooms. There is also a small bar area for a quiet beverage and a bite to eat. It is the little “Cheers” of Orford and Fairlee.
James Peyton is the Executive Chef and prepares all food from scratch with a major emphasis on Local and Organic. His Tapas menu is unique to the area and offers Small Plates of Original and skillfully prepared menu items. The Chef’s focus is of the highest quality and consistency. Styles change and they change in the food industry as well. Our menu addresses change with a wide variety of Gluten, Dairy Free and Vegan menu items.
Heidi Peyton is the Hostess and delights in presenting menu descriptions and service. She is well known for her Craft Cocktails and a Wine list that is also Organic, from Small Vineyards that are privately owned. She delights in offering wines that are unique and price-conscious. The Craft beers are always cold and ready to pour.
Peyton Place is also a cultural center with 6 area artists work on display throughout the restaurant. The art exhibit changes 4 times a year and is there for all to enjoy. There is live music every Thursday from 6-9 PM with musicians from near and far. The genres include Country, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Pop and beyond. There are Pop-Up performances on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays 2-3 times a month. Bringing music to the community and employing local musicians is another goal of the Peytons.
