Best Burger I've had in a long time! The restaurant was packed because it was bad weather that night & no one wanted to leave the hotel. But they managed to honor our reservation & actually tried to call our room when it was ready. They found us at the bar!

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing dinner, with a table near the fireplace and very comfortable high-back "living room" chairs. The staff was pleasant and accommodating and the ambience is great. The food was tasty, creative, and nicely presented but the portions are not large. I was able to finish my meal and had room for dessert, which doesn't... More

Thanks for joining us for dinner in Richardson’s Tavern. I’m happy you enjoyed the casually elegant ambience and a cozy table by the fire. The menu at The Tavern comprises smaller appetizer-style plates as well as what we call “large plates,” and I suspect some confusion about the menu may have resulted in your portion not being as large as...

We were seated near a party of barely supervised small children. They clearly had not been told to use their inside voices. The parents were seated quite a distance away. Lucky them! We went to the pub because we wanted an informal, light meal. We are guests at the Woodstock Inn. Well the meal was light. We shared a salad... More

Thank you for dining with us in Richardson’s Tavern during your recent visit to Woodstock. The red ale-battered haddock with chips and shaved celery salad is one of our most popular dishes, and I am sorry to hear you didn’t find it adequate as a shared meal.

My husband and I were disappointed with our experience. We went for dinner and the food was bland and expensive for a tavern. A vodka tonic was $10 and a Pimms cup #9 (with fruit) was $12. Ambience was great but expect to pay $100 for dinner and a couple of drinks.
