The food here is very affordable and very well presented. The fish and chips were done just right and just the right amount. The flatbed item was delicious and the perfect size. Our drinks were great and the bill not too expensive.

Thank you so much for visiting Richardson's Tavern while in Woodstock recently!

I’m happy to hear the experience and a terrific dinner- you don't mention it, but I hope you saved a little room for some of our delicious, house-made desserts! Our pastry team does a wonderful job and you’ll definitely have to visit again to sample their wares… as well as out totally unique Vermont Cheddar fondue!

The next time you're planning to be in the area, please do consider calling our reservations team to inquire about staying with us at The Woodstock Inn & Resort as well; we offer a great variety of packages and specials throughout the year to add value and enhance your stay!

Yours truly,
Rick Reno, Resort Training Manager

The Tavern has very good pub food. I had the fish and chips. I was hoping for more flavor on the Old Bay fries but the haddock was very fresh and golden fried. The unfiltered draft IPA was local and very hoppy just like I like it. The big surprise was my wife’s Coc au Vin which was brought in a skillet and literally fell off the bone. They had her favorite Sauvignon Blanc from new Zealand. Don’t miss the maple pecan ice cream - fabulous- we had three scoops ( between us, of course). And it was the perfect ending.
Oh yes the service was outstanding and the pub atmosphere enchanting, with our table overlooking the grounds of the Inn. Magic evening. You’ll like it.

Thank you for joining us for an informal evening in Richardson's Tavern while visiting The Woodstock Inn & Resort last weekend. I’m glad you were able to stop in and enjoy both the casually elegant ambience and the creative “pub-style” cuisine!

You and your wife certainly chose wisely: both the fish’n’chips and coq au vin are popular favorites, and our home-made ice cream, made from 100% Billings Farm & Museum Jersey cream, is out of this world!

We look forward to seeing you again soon and sharing more delectable treats as spring turns into summer and fresh organic veggies start pouring out of our Kelly Way Gardens!

Thanks again,
Rick Reno, Resort Training Manager

This was our first time eating here. My husband and I both had the clam chowder, it was delicious. Both of us had the cheddar bacon burger, once again delicious. We will be adding this to one of our favorites. We visited on a Sunday night. It was quiet and sat by the window in nice cozy chairs. Our waiter was awesome, wish we got his name.

Thanks for dropping into Richardson's Tavern while visiting Woodstock recently!

Our chowder is a huge favorite among our guests many of whom have been returning to The Woodstock Inn & Resort over and over for generations and are amazed at the quality of seafood here in a land-locked state!

The menus both in Richardson's Tavern and The Red Rooster change with the seasons and provide a very personal glimpse of the best of New England, and while the menu will likely be a little different the next time you join us, you can be confident you’ll find some irresistible treats!

Next time, try the fondue made with 1890s-style country cheddar from our own Billings Farm & Museum’s 100% Jersey herd… it’s unlike any you’ve ever experienced!

Cheers,
Rick Reno, Resort Training Manager

Thank you for dining with us (twice!) in Richardson's Tavern while visiting The Woodstock Inn & Resort last week and sharing your great memories. You chose well: both the burgers and shepherd’s pie are perennial favorites among our guests as well as the many area residents who frequent The Tavern!

Monday evenings, which our chefs have unofficially proclaimed “burger night” and when they get very creative with their variations on the theme, are particularly popular!

We’ll be unveiling our spring menu soon, and before long we’ll be featuring fresh organic produce from our Kelly Way Gardens; we hope you’ll be able to visit again during the spring and summer to enjoy more delights as well as some terrific new recreational activities and Spa treatments!

Please do give us a call so we can help you craft the perfect getaway!

Warm regards,
Rick Reno, Resort Training Manager

We stopped into the Richardson Tavern for a quick cocktail on a recent visit to Woodstock. I loved the rich wood interior and authentic decorations.

Thank you for including a drink in Richardson's Tavern in your recent visit to Woodstock. It’s a wonderful spot for a relaxing cocktail or perhaps one (or two!) of Vermont’s finest craft beers and the perfect way to top off the day!

The next time you're in the area I’d encourage you to consider The Tavern for dinner as well; we feature a terrific “classically Vermont” menu with some great uniquely Woodstock twists and it’s always a lot of fun!

Please do give us a call if you’d like to consider extending your visit with a stay at The Woodstock Inn & Resort, and we’ll be happy to help you design the perfect getaway!
