Always worth a visit.

This is a hidden jewel in Woodstock. Absolutely excellent service and food each time I visit. I had one of the most pleasant 4 hour dinners here the other night. Great food, excellent company and good conversation made this a night to remember.

My husband and I went here on a Thursday for dinner which happens to be the night they had a 1/2 off bistro menu. My husband and I both really enjoyed our food and considering the price was reduced it was well worth it. I had the fried chicken and potatoes which were exceptional while my husband had the steak.... More

We went last night after not dined there in 10 years. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was warm, and our service was exceptional. We certainly will go back soon.

On our last visit we were really impressed with the food and the service. The menu appeared to have changed very little since our last visit two years ago. On this visit the service was equally good, but the food just missed the mark. Not that the food was bad, but it just wasn't as good as we remembered. Tuscan... More

Had prix fix dinner here. Food was ok -- not bad, not great -- just OK. Expected better, left disappointed. Service was good, atmosphere was fine, but the menu is boring (both the pub menu and the prix fix menu) -- could use an infusion of creativity and interest.

Excellent food, charming interior, great art inside, outstanding waiter! The pate appetizer is outstanding as was the green salad with local goat cheese - just the right balance of ingredients in the salad.

The Prince and the Pauper exceeded all our expectations. Randi, our server, was attentive, efficient, and friendly. She was a delight. As for the atmosphere...candle light, table cloths, flowers, beautiful historic building...charming....inviting. And the food....delicious and beautifully plated. My husband and I look forward to returning in October. Save room for dessert! Put this restaurant on your "Bucket List!" Yummy!

Excellent food, service and general atmosphere. Had lovely time with wife. We love good food and service and unfortunately the Woodstock area doesn't have a terribly wide selection to choose from. Visit this one if your in the town or local area.

The service is always excellent and the food delicious. The P&P has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed.
