Saturday night dining was a fixed price menu (but ala carte would be possible if requested ). All staff was very willing to be flexible - (We got last minute reservations) Wine list was strong and dinner was beautifully and elegantly served. Choc hazelnut mousse pie was superb and was our Tuscany lamb entree.

Dinners took a long time coming out. The $39 price fixe Sunday through Wednesday was good. The bourbon caramel sauce on any of the desserts make this worth the trip. Call ahead to make sure they have it. They can make it the day ahead if requested.

A simple dinner that didn't excite or impress. No major flaws but just some pretty average fare. Given the reviews we expected more interesting and unusual offerings. Maybe the menu changes periodically, seasonally, and we just hit the wrong time.

We visited over Veterans Day long weekend in November - the "off-season" with the leaves gone and no snow yet. The restaurant offered a special deal - the $55 fixed price menu was only $39 each. The food was very good - we got the duck and lamb entrees. The restaurant was much nicer inside than we expected and comfortable.... More

Second year in a row we had dinner at The Prince and the Pauper with a group of friends during an annual visit to Woodstock. The service here is very friendly and the room is rustic and cozy. During both visits the restaurant has been full so recommend you reserve in advance. The food is very good with nice variety... More

The main dining room at Prince and Pauper is great but our absolute favorite place to be starting in October, and going all the way through the winter, is the cozy bar. Friendly, easy place to enjoy an evening. There is a all bar menu but we order off the regular restaurant menu typically: filet or salmon always excellent!

Our last evening in Vermont was well spent at The Prince and the Pauper, a restaurant we initially overlooked. We’re very glad we changed our minds! It was a busy Sunday evening and we walked in on the off-chance that there would be a table, which there was but only just. Like others have previously advised, I would definitely make... More

My wife and I had dinner here on the first Saturday in October and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It was an all day rain, but the Prince and the Pauper was a warm and cozy refuge. The service was outstanding and flowed well. I had a salad- great in house dressing, the Pasta Del Giorno- comfort food, and the Swordfish-cooked... More

After driving for 3 hours and then checking in at Woodstock Inn my wife and I ate here. We were meted by friendly matre'd. We had a drink at the bar before going to the dinning room. Friendly atmosphere and bartender. Once seated the waitress went over the menu. My wife had their signature dish...the lamb and I had the... More
