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!

Two couples had 4 excellent meals. The schnitzel was terrific. Great service as well. Worth the trip.

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.

We arrived early at 6:00 pm for a early quite dinner. we were seated in a back room that at the time was empty. However this is a popular place to eat, and soon the load table of four arrived, followed by the table of twelve! Why the manager, seated us, in this room, when there were booths available, that...

My wife (aka my Valentine) and I had reservations at another restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner and we were bar-hopping our way back to our lodging after a day of cross-country skiing. We stopped into the P&P for just a drink when the bartender (a very nice guy from Austria) offered us a look at the night's menu. The P&P's... More

we chose this restaurant based on the reviews, but I'd have to say that we are now going to be suspect of "fantastic" tripadvisor reviews. We completely understand that a dining experience is subjective, but I am not sure how one could rate the P and P as anything but average. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't delicious...it was just...

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Woodstock. It was our first time dinning at The Prince and Pauper and absolutely won't be our last. Our waitress was so friendly and gave us great recommendations. We had delicious wine, cocktails with local spirits and amazing food. I highly recommend it for a special date night or... More

With the good reviews we thought we'd give it a try on our recent visit to Woodstock. In our opinion, it was ok, but not anything out of the ordinary, and a bit pricey. Grilled salmon was just that, and the steak was nothing special. Service was a bit slow on a slow night. There are better options in town.
