Good food with good service. Local cuisine served well in a nice setting. Recipes are reasonably complex and certainly portions are ample. cocktail list is great, featuring local spirits, lime my very fine Bee’s Knees with Barr Hii Gin. Wine list is more than adequate and well priced. Wait staff was well informed and attentive.

We stumbled upon the Reluctant Panther while looking for a romantic weekend getaway in southern Vermont. We were not disappointed. This cute inn has 20 rooms and a restaurant that caters to guests who want a quiet weekend away from the stress of daily life. the rooms are decorated in a classic colonial style. Ours had a memory foam bed with a fireplace which was a nice touch. The restaurant serves inspired cuisine and world class.The free breakfast was also very tasty. The service is excellent!

We dined at the restaurant, the surrounding inn cottages looked very nice. May consider staying there next trip. Our food was very good, two had the halibut, and two had the filet mignon. The price was high, but not outrageous and the service was terrific. We sat outside, weather was perfect. desert was It was a truly memorable evening. You can walk there in 3-5 minutes from Equinox or the Kimpton where we lodged.

Hi, NYC food snob here. We always eat dinner here when we go to Manchester. The restaurant is excellent, excellent and excellent. Get there a little early, get a drink, sit out back in the Adirondack chairs and enjoy life.

The Reluctant Panther proved to be a fabulous weekend getaway! Perfect spot for unwinding and relaxing. The Inn is meticulously maintained down to the littlest details, with clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated rooms, complete with fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs, wonderfully suited for decompressing! The breakfast, inlcluded with our stay, was delicious each morning, with plenty of options and complimentary added sweets (to die for crumb cake & blueberry muffins, all homemade on the premises!) and the staff was more than accommodating, helping us to choose some fun and different activities, such as glassblowing and visiting a sugar shack, to see how Vermont maple syrup is made! Loved this place, and will DEFINITELY return! Shout out to Charles at the front desk, and Nicole in the dining room :-)
