While this is technically a tavern, be forewarned that it is a VERY upscale tavern with food that, while very good, is more expensive. The beer menu is not incredibly extensive, but has enough local brews and two beers either made in-house or contract brewed (I forgot to ask; they were Cedric's Pale Ale and Cedric's Brown Ale) that I'm sure most people could find something to drink. That being said, this is on the Biltmore grounds, so you will usually need a day-pass or ticket to gain access to the grounds on which the tavern sits. Fortunately, the guard at the gate was "feeling nice" as she said, and thus let us through without a day pass as we indicated we only wished to eat and not shop around, though I wouldn't usually bank on this kind of generosity to gain access.

Once we were done with our house tours, we drove to the Biltmore Village for lunch at Cedric's Tavern, named after the Vanderbilt family Saint Bernard. Looking online it was unclear if this was an actual brewpub or just a pub that served some beers, but by 1 PM we were starving and it was close. The food was very good though somewhat pricey. The beer sampler featured three house beers that were all decent but not stellar--the ESB being the best of the three. On further evaluation they have beers brewed for them by Highland Brewing, so not a real brewpub.

My wife and i stopped here after touring Biltmore it was a welcome oasis as we just spent 3 hours touring the estates its on your way out and i recommend stopping just to relax they have a winery tour (free) and tasting room in the same complex which is first class do this first and have some great samples of wines than walk over to Cedric's , they have 5 taps and maybe 20 bottles the guest taps were nice they had Wicked Weed ,Highland and French Broad , but the 2 brews named for cedric (dog) a PA and Brown are pretty good and the food and service were outstanding Cedric's brews are contract brewed by Highland brewing and only available on Biltmore they are only B class brews IMO but this place is a must stop when touring Biltmore food and service was great and welcome

My wife and I stopped in at Cedric's Tavern after spending a day on the Biltmore grounds. It was nice to be able to sit down and enjoy a beer. I had the Brown Ale. It was a decent beer and hit the spot. The Tavern had the bar area and then a restaurant that surrounded it. We didn't eat there because we had plans to eat at the Grove Park Inn later that night but it looked like it would be a nice place to eat.
