The Wine Cellar Kitchen bustles with reserved dinner parties prepared by our Best Chefs; special events; and Chef Walter Royal’s Teaching Kitchen, a program designed to bring his vast expertise to novice cooks and apprentice chefs. With the completion of the Wine Cellar Kitchen, another chapter in the long, rich history of the Angus Barn began and Thad’s lifelong vision was fulfilled. Henrietta Mears wrote that hospitality should have no other nature than love. In the loving spirit of Thad and Alice Eure, welcome to their Wine Cellar Dining Rooms!

Thad's Room:
After descending our stairwell and being escorted through our wine cellar you enter Thad’s Room a glow in candle light where we can seat a minimum of 12 and up to 34 for a private dining experience. Thad’s Room boasts a fireplace for ambiance as well as a private bar in the room. The room is decorated beautifully with stained glass windows, cobblestones from Raleigh’s original Fayetteville Street and vintage pieces about the room. This room is ideal for business meetings or programs as well as rehearsal dinners and celebrations of all kinds.

Alice's Room: An excellent room for business dinners, presentations, wine tastings and corporate parties. These private dining rooms are also the perfect setting for special birthdays, anniversaries and dinner parties. As host, you will select a gourmet menu from the cuisine of our Executive Chef, Walter Royal, and his staff. The Cellar Master will pair wines with each course to compliment your dining experience. Clad in tuxedos, your wine cellar service staff will offer your guests silent white-glove service and cater to their every need.

Making a Reservation

Choose Thad's or Alice's Room and Dinner Selections with Innovative Gourmet Cuisine. There is traditionally one server per five guests. Guests have the opportunity to select courses from our cellar menu. The dinner is a "fixed menu", meaning all guests have the same item for each course, but hosts may pick their menu with confidence, knowing that we can handle any special dietary needs that will suit their guests. Please be aware that selected accompaniments may change at the chef's discretion, without notice, to ensure freshness and availability.

Captain's Table

The Captain’s Table is located in the Wine Cellar kitchen,adjacent to “Thad’s Room”, the larger of the two cellar rooms. You will be treated to an exclusive behind-the-sceneslook at the Wine Cellar kitchen operations,while you enjoy a gourmet dinner experience, personally prepared before your eyes by one of our top chefs. The chef will serve this scrumptious meal matched with carefully selected wines. During your meal you will tour the cellar that is recognized as having one of the top 100 wine lists in the world. Although you are in the midst of the kitchen activity, you will find there is a surprising level of privacy in a perfect blend of fine dining, with impeccable service and a feast for the eyes. Please join us at the Captain’s Table in the Wine Cellar kitchen for a true taste of the Angus Barn.
