Ore Hill & Swyft

3 Maple Street

Ore Hill is a unique experience in Northwest Connecticut. We are an intimate, tasting menu-focused restaurant anchored in our local agriculture but informed by a global worldview and culinary pedigree. Our menu changes seasonally, and likely in small ways on a weekly basis. Produce is sourced from Rock Cobble Farm and several other carefully selected local farms with a few noted exceptions.

Ore Hill is named after the road that leads to Rock Cobble Farm in South Kent. A herd of one hundred Randall cattle roams the fields at this idyllic country estate which inspires our menus, complete with greenhouses, gardens, vegetable patches, apiaries, and orchards. While the Swyft Tavern is a lively space where community members can gather and enjoy shareable plates and wood-fired pizzas casually in the center of town, Ore Hill evokes a quiet oasis where guests can retreat from the bustle of our town center and share a meal that celebrates the season at Rock Cobble Farm.

Swyft is a modern tavern in a historical setting, serving wood-fired, farm-driven pizzas, shareable small plates, and seasonal entrees that aim to both comfort and inspire. Working closely with nearby Rock Cobble Farm, the food at Swyft follows the flavors of the seasons. The extensive beer selection offers a variety of local brews, while the cocktail and wine lists combine familiar favorites with new discoveries. With takeout and party space available and a family-friendly Sunday prix-fixe supper starting soon, Swyft is both a touchstone and a meeting point for Northwestern Connecticut and New York.
