The Tavern at the Colonial Motel allows for a fun night out without the inconvenience of driving to get there. After a long day in meetings, out on the town or hitting the slopes visit the Tavern to refuel. If you're craving sweet desserts or just want to unwind at the bar, The Tavern is the perfect place to grab a bite and a drink. We have one of the best draft beer and wine selections in the area. Our exiting new menu is reasonable priced. Every dish is a winner! In the wintertime get cozy in the Tavern with two brick fireplaces blazing to warm you up after a day on the slopes. Reserve your room online and plan on dining at the Tavern in Brattleboro, Vermont soon.

Charming copper bar and great service

The Tavern Restaurant was recomended to me, as I began a new construction project in Brattleboro, Vermont. It is connected to a hotel, near one of Brattleboro's round-a-bouts, but I'm not sure it is the same business Owners? The dining and bar area are not large, but tables are arranged with ample... read more

After checking into the adjoining Colonial Motel in unexpected circumstances (broken down vehicle), I came into the Tavern for a much deserved beer. Many restaurants connected to a motel has the stigma of not exactly offering cutting edge cuisine - Surprise!! The Tavern offers a good selection of local brews on tap, many wines and an interesting menu! I only... More

Had lunch today at the newly renovated Tavern Restaurant. The food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. The decor is very welcoming and the atmosphere very family friendly. Would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner when visiting Brattleboro, VT.

Gourmet dining with every item $20.00 or less. A newly renovated Tavern and menu makes this restaurant stand out among all others in the area.

The restaurant had only been open for a few days when we ate there. We stopped in for drinks and appetizers before heading to our room for the night. Very reasonably priced and the menu had a good variety. Their hummus is awesome! The bartender was attentive and friendly. Overall, great experience!

It was a very cold February night when the wife and I decided to have a meal here w=I was not expecting much but that soon changed. The doors opened and we were met by the smell and warmth of an open log fire. The restaurant was not overly full and we had a seat near the fire very cosy.... More

Well, I read the reviews and wasn't going to go because of the negative reports. I decided to give it a try when I was told by the front desk that it was under new ownership and that hotel guests got a 10% discount. I mentioned this to the woman who seated us and was told it was no longer... More

The food is delicious albeit on the pricey side. For example, the Tavern's black angus burger is absolutely the best burger I've ever tasted. At $11, however, I would "settle" for a Wendy's burger if the mood me struck on a "normal" night. We enjoyed a lovely ambiance, with the wood burning fireplace roaring behind me and an abundance of... More

We came off the mountain and were ravenous, so we decided to try out the "big city" Brattleborough and right there on Rte 5 is TheTavern inside the Colonial Motel. This is a place that is so warm and cozy it felt like home. Two rooms and fireplaces. Our waitress was great- knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful in... More
