When we last dined here, it was like taking a journey back to the 1980s and to what fine dining meant in that day. The décor, the menu, and even the clientele all were throwbacks. But having said that, the food was well executed (my filet was cooked to perfection) and the staff attentive and kind. And the clientele seemed... More

Excellent eats and not expensive (at least if you're used to the prices of a larger city...). Restaurant is happy to make whatever you want. You can order off the priz fixe menu or a la carte. Either way you won't go wrong. Service was excellent.

Dined at this restaurant whilst spending 3 days in Woodstock. We were seated in a cubicle style table which was both uncomfortable, dated and rather claustrophobic. It was also located close to the air conditioning unit which began to operate extremely noisily as our meal was served. Our table was also very close to the service station and considering we...

My partner and I dined at the Prince and the Pauper recently and we were very pleased with our meal and the service. We had been told by our B&B hosts that we could eat in the dining room and order either from the dining room menu which is a prix fix meal or from the tavern menu. Being light... More

We ate here to celebrate a birthday, and it was the perfect choice. We were seated in a booth, which was cozy and comfortable. Our server was friendly, efficient and experienced. The prix fixe menu had several tempting choices, and what we did select was absolutely delicious. We were allowed to take our time and enjoy every bite.

We were debating between this and the Woodstock Inn and I'm so glad we chose the PNP. We were promptly seated at a small seat in the front window where we had impeccable service and seriously one of the best meals either of us has had in ages and we eat out a lot. I recommend the sirloin and crab... More

So this restaurant is supposedly the best in Woodstock. I would have to disagree. The food was average, the service was slow, and the prices (if you don't choose from the bistro menu) are unjustifiably high. I don't pay that much for a great meal in one of the finest restaurants in Boston. I am trying to understand how they... More

Be transported back in time to a colonial style restaurant. Food was exceptional, service meticulous. I addition to a nice wine list, they have some great cocktails. Bravo!

The last time we dined at Prince and the Pauper was in 2006 so our expectations were based on very favorable experiences almost a decade ago. Did we set the bar too high? Perhaps. However, our experience at our most recent visit was disappointing to say the least. The room is still charming and the staff is still as friendly... More

We really enjoyed our meal at The Prince and the Pauper. Everything was well prepared. Our only complaint is that there was an unusually long interval between our appetizers and entrees arriving.
