Nice tavern in a great town

Food was good, I'd recommend their chicken pot pie. I ate at the bar and had a few craft beers as well. Service at the bar was excellent. Great pub/tavern atmosphere.

We ate here last week. The food was very good. My son had a burger and I had a salad. We were both very happy with our selection.

We ate dinner here during a recent visit to Middlebury based on very positive reviews. While the service was very good, the food was not. I had a panini -- it was fine, but unremarkable. My wife had the chicken pot pie. The very pleasant waitress sent it back to the kitchen before even serving it - the top wasn't... More

Stopped for an after noon lunch. The food was delicious and service excellent. We had a seat by the window (which I recommend). Also, a nice beer selection, both on tap and bottle.

Very nice pub/restaurant upstairs. Lounge atmosphere downstairs. Fare is good with local products from farmers, dairy, vinyards, butchers, and culture. Poutine is always delicious, a warm comfort food on cold days and nights in fall and winter. Wine selection is wonderful. Fall brings back the Middlebury University students who add flavor and color to the sports season.

Local beers on tap, and some tasty food to match. Cake was very rich and beers and coffee very good. Server was energetic polite and attentive (Eric). Had a split middle with a tavern on the left restaurant on the right. We were looking for food so went to the restaurant side. Not disappointed, and the divide kept the pub... More

Went there by myself to have dinner. Ordered a pasta dish which was very good and tasty. However, that was enough for 2 people! It is a cool place to have some drinks and relax.

Atmosphere was like an upscale pub - very comfortable. Staff was friendly and gave good service. Tried nachos which were great and Shepard Poe which was a bit dry. Good wine and craft beer selections. Locals eat here - would recommend.

In town on business, needed a local restaurant to eat alone. This was just right -- not too fancy, but with a restaurant side where I could sit alone without the "bar" atmosphere. Service was prompt and polite. Good wine choices and nice menu with lots of options including apps, salads, sandwiches and entrees. Chose the steak, blue cheese and... More

Good bar food w focus on Local Products. Burger was rare and beet salad was evenly dressed. Flexible about Football games on screens. Pricey, but worth stop between Manchester and Richmond.
