I love Fearrington Village. However, it's the middle of October and it's not decorated at all. I asked the gentleman behind the counter about seasonal drinks and he barked back that there was nothing. They used to have a wonderful variety of desserts and that...More

The (Belted) Goat is a great place in Fearrington for a quick bite. Breakfast, lunch, light dinner as well as small plates any time. They have goodies like a coffee bar, a variety of cupcakes, cookies, soups, etc.

We had a delicious lunch at the Goat but everything now is self service including clearing and sorting your plates at the bussing station. We also had dinner there which was ok. The dinner menu was limited compared to the old restaurant and it seemed...More
