There is a hidden retreat, full of Southern charm, just 10 minutes from downtown Nashville. This historic Old School is situated on nine acres of sustainable farmland which supplies our Farm to Table Restaurant with seasonal produce that is expertly prepared by our executive chef. As a tribute to times gone by, this rustic 1936 schoolhouse has been lovingly restored to its former glory. Original wooden floors, high ceilings, and classic architectural warmth make it the perfect dining choice. The non-profit Old School Farm, located on our property, provides our restaurant with an array of seasonal vegetables as well as provides a training site for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. (www.oldschoolfarm.org). Every time you eat at our restaurant, you are not only giving back to the local community and farmers, you are also helping give jobs to those of all abilities.
