Awesome locally sourced fare.

This place has a great menu and a great staff. We tried the rack of lamb and the cod and they were both cooked perfectly. The bread they serve before the meal is super fresh and delicious.

My wife and I recently stopped at the Prince and the Pauper after friends and the front desk lady at the Shire hotel recommended it. The fixed price menu was tempting, but we opted to order ala carte instead. I had a great steak; my wife had an amazing salmon dinner. The portions were large and filling. While the food... More

We walked here from our hotel - this place was highly recommended from several people and didn't disappoint. Great service and quality food. Made for a nice anniversary dinner. The creme brûlée was excellent!

We consider this "our" restaurant. Consistently good food, sometimes extraordinary. Friendly, homey, a pleasure time after time after time after time. Tell Vinnie I sent you.

My wife and I were in town celebrating our 9th anniversary and someone recommended The Prince and the Pauper. We did not have a reservation, but the very kind mai·tre d' warmly welcomed us and made sure we were promptly served. The food and service there is bar none!!!!! My wife's salmon dish was flavorful and most memorable. If I... More

My wife and I had dinner here this week and were very impressed with the food and service. It might be considered a bit pricy by some, however we felt it was worth the slight additional cost. I had a ribeye that was perfectly cooked as was the salmon that my wife enjoyed. We will return at some point in... More

We had just arrived to Woodstock and had no idea where to eat, so we checked the tripadvisor and Yelp ratings. We were not disappointed. We had the option of a fixed menu and a tavern menu, and we chose the tavern menu as we were not overly hungry. We loved both the meals and the staff, very friendly and... More

We ate at the Prince and the Pauper the night before my wedding at the Woodstock Inn, and the dinner was organized by my in-laws. I was expecting just a dinner, but when we walked in the room by the bar had a fantastic cheese spread laid out, along with a few appetizers. The staff was ultra accommodating, and were... More

The food was delicious, if a bit pricy. We had yummy crab cake appetizers, a nice salad and very good filet mignon, followed by a decadent flourless chocolate cake, which we shared. The dinner was a fixed price and included an appetizer and salad - desert was not included. You can order ala-carte. With a glass of wine each and... More

The Prince & The Pauper is a little Woodstock, VT gem. The cozy wooded bar is welcoming and the bartender fixed a delicious gin martini and stuffed the blue cheese into the olives herself. The dining room was handsomely furnished. The mussel and ravioli appetizers were delicious. The roasted duck could have been crispier, but the meat was tender and... More
