Top Notch

Exceedingly good service in a quiet refined atmosphere. The menu doesn't change that often, but specials should be given special attention. I've never had a mediocre meal here.

I live in Woodstock. I visit the P&P a few times a year. The atmosphere is great, the staff is very professional, the kitchen has their act together. The food is a great value. One of Woodstock's little gems!

This was a lovely "find" for us for dinner - an easy walk from the Woodstock Inn. The restaurant was somewhat crowded, and a table was a 20 minute wait - we were walk-ins. We were offered to sit at the bar and have a drink while waiting for a table, or to eat dinner at the bar. We opted... More

We enjoyed our dinner at the Prince and the Pauper. The pate plate and the lamb entree were especially good. We found the wine list to be full of interesting and affordable wine. The atmosphere in the restaurant was cozy and comfortable. The service was quite good as well, although by the time it came to getting our check there... More

The food was great but they don't give your a lot. I had salmon and my husband had a steak. My salmon was excellent but small and my husband said his steak was tender. The service however was terrible. I mean terrible. The waitress dropped our food off and never came back! We were there celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary... More

The Prince and the Pauper was recommended by the proprietors of the inn where we we staying in Woodstock. This was an excellent recommendation. The wine list was quite good with a variety of offerings on the menu. I had the pork marsala which was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant without reservation. The only reason I did not give... More

We had a fantastic dinner here, absolutely delicious. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated promptly. The timing of the whole dinner was perfect. We were delighted with all courses, and the profiterole for dessert was out of this world. This is a great find in Woodstock where there are a lot of tourists looking for "rustic Vermont-y". Food...

We enjoyed dinner at the Prince and the Pauper on a Saturday night. The atmosphere is rustic, and we had a nice booth in the back of the dining room. However, there were three large dining groups (over eight each) and the noise level in the small rooms was very high. The groups. along with the rest of the regular... More

We have eaten at The Prince and the Pauper many times over many years. We enjoyed a lovely evening there last night after a 3 year absence. The atmosphere is cozy and warm- intimate antique wooden booths and other tables in an old Woodstock home. It hasn't changed in years and that's a good thing! The menu is a 3... More
