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.

Excellent food in an excellent setting. It has a beautiful, rustic but small bar and bar area. Nice to have a drink there before dinner. The pre fix menu was rather expensive. Order directly off the menu instead. The service was excellent. Beware of alcoholic drink prices. They are way too expensive. $15 martinis were just way too expensive. One... More

We went early on New Years Eve to the prix fixe dinner and were not disappointed. Appetizer of foie gras was superb. Salmon and veal chop so tasty. The entire meal was just wonderful as well as the service. The $85 per person was steep not including cocktails and coffee so it ended up being an expensive night for two.... More

Sat at the bar, had the duck ... WOW Ask for additional orange sauce. The group next to us found that many of the dishes were already sold out by 7:30 PM. This is the second year that I've been in a bar. Don't be surprised if you find old-timers at the bar. They're fun to talk to.if you're heading... More

This is not a place if you tend to seek out those exceptional 'foodie' experiences; i.e.- the trend-of-the-day restaurants. ("farm to table"??? REALLLY??) This is the type of restaurant that is an institution. Thankfully, the P&P is an institution that deserves the title. The building is off the main street and resembles- from the exterior- an irish pub/inn. Comfortable and... More

This is probably the best restaurant in Woodstock. It's a little bit pricey, once you add wine, dessert and drinks but it's worth it. Every course was delicious and beautifully presented. I had flounder for my entree and it was meltingly white. Excellent.

This real antique building welcomes you to a nearly hushed atmosphere. Staff excellent. Definately fun.
