The last time we dined at Prince and the Pauper was in 2006 so our expectations were based on very favorable experiences almost a decade ago. Did we set the bar too high? Perhaps. However, our experience at our most recent visit was disappointing to say the least. The room is still charming and the staff is still as friendly... More

We really enjoyed our meal at The Prince and the Pauper. Everything was well prepared. Our only complaint is that there was an unusually long interval between our appetizers and entrees arriving.

I strongly recommend a reservation at this very popular restaurant. We had the dinner special. I had excellent mussels in white wine/garlic sauce which were excellent, then the duck which was good but nothing special. The vegetables were good but the portion very small. The rice was pretty tasteless. My husband had the pasta puttenesca which was wonderful and then... More

This restaurant is worth a visit even if you are just passing through. I have visited this area of Vermont for over 25 years and this was the first time I ate here. The meal was very expensive, but very memorable. Excellent, excellent and excellent.!!! If you like gourmet food and are willing to pay $150 for two and that... More

The bar is small and cozy, the interior is varnished wook with tables and booths and the parking is nearby.

I save the five-dot rating for places that are really special, and what makes this one really special is the service (although the food is fabulous too). I walked in on Tuesday night without a reservation, and the maitre d', an elegant gentleman but really warm and welcoming, told me (with genuine regret) there would be a fairly long wait.... More

Met friends for dinner for a good meal. Only complaint is that the restaurant is quite small and our party of 5 was close to the kitchen so not much room for the wait staff to get around our table.

My husband and I had supper there a few months ago. The steak I had ordered was very tasty and cooked exactly as requested, medium rare, and came with good, crispy fries. My husband also really enjoyed his meal of fried buttermilk chicken and mashed potatoes. My one suggestion for improvement would be to add more vegetables to the plate... More

The Prince and the Pauper was so wonderful and delicious and cozy that we ate there both nights of our stay in Woodstock. My husband and I both enjoyed everything from the salad to the drinks to the main courses. The chicken in peach sauce was out of this world! There are two menus available, one a bit higher priced--both... More
