This exquisite restaurant off the main street in Woodstock,Vt. offers two menus daily..... a bistro menu and a fixed price menu. Selections from either menu are truly top of the line. The wine selection is also excellent. My family has visited this restaurant for years. Most recently,this month, we had visited several restaurants in the area, and this was by... More

I made a reservation a month in advance in preparation for my trip to Woodstock with my boyfriend. I had read great reviews on Trip Advisor. - Staff was welcoming and nice. They weren't trying to sell you expensive food, but gave honest opinions about each entree. - I had a filet mignon while my boyfriend had the Grilled Tuscan... More

We have visited the Prince and the Pauper several times over the past 20 years. The service and the food is always outstanding. It is not cheap but always delicious.

We had hear this was the best in town. Granted, we only visited once, but based on that one vist I would not come back and feel the restaurant is over rated. There were two problems: the chef (who is also the owner) and the front of the house management. The restaurant filled up very quickly ... too quickly. It... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Prince and Pauper on Wednesday June 18th. A great menu and very excellent service. One of the best meals we have ever had in the Woodstock area.

My husband and I happened on The Prince and the Pauper on a trip to Woodstock this spring. I don't hesitate to say that it was one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant. The restaurant itself if a bit on the small side, so some may feel cramped, but it's cozy, and worth it for the delicious... More

The Prince and Pauper has a great atmosphere and excellent cuisine. We also enjoyed a very nice St. Emilion which was a good accompaniment to our festivities. The Vermont cheese and tomato salad was wonderful. All dishes ordered were thoroughly enjoyed.

Visited on a recent holiday weekend, having heard the rave reviews. Tavern menu not available, so limited to Prix Fixe dinner, which was a fair value (app, salad and main course for special price of $39), but quality was average for a decent restaurant. Nothing particularly imaginative, nor flavors that would blow you away. Much happier with other meals we... More
