Serving Lunch & Dinner
dine on the beautiful warren river
Trafford Restaurant is located in an elegant two-story building overlooking the waterfront in Warren, Rhode Island.
Dine upstairs or downstairs in stunning dining rooms surrounded by windowed walls that showcase the Warren River and its spectacular sunsets.
Relax on our refreshing front deck or riverside patio complete with open-air bar. Both outside dining spaces are open for the season.
The story behind our new look
From 2011 - 2019, Trafford had a distinctly light and airy decor with neutral, coastal colors throughout the restaurant. After a March 2019 kitchen fire closed Trafford for 2 1/2 years of repairs, we were ready for a decidedly different and modern look.
Our blog post, A New Look for a Second Life, details the design journey led by Kyla Coburn Designs, illustrated with photos of the major changes we undetook. The end result is the warm, vibrant sea-inspired decor you see today.

Visit us in the thriving coastal town of Warren!
Opened in 2011, Trafford is built on the site of the former Staples Coal Company in Warren's historical waterfront district.
The name Trafford, originally Trapford, means where the land and water meet, and is symbolized by an 1890s image of a sailboat with wheels discovered in the Providence Public Library.
