Cozy, romantic restaurant with delicious food

My husband and I came here during our stay in Woodstock and were very impressed. The calamari was nice and crispy, and the green salad that came with both of our meals was delicious. I had the sesame salmon and it was so good - surpassed my expectations. My husband had the lamb which was also good... read more

It gives me no pleasure writing a bad review, but I think people in hopes of good dining, (not even fine), should know that this is not the place to go. I would at least like to say that we had THE most delightful waitress, who was attentive, funny, and very efficient. We were seated promptly but we were denied... More

We visit Woodstock each January and a meal at the Prince and the Pauper has become a regular part of each visit. The ambiance of the restaurant, the friendliness of the staff, and the quality of the food keep us coming back year after year.

Family of four with a couple of food allergies and a picky kid, and the Prince and the Pauper totally delivered. Great wine list, TREMENDOUS service and just the warmest place to hang on a cold Vermont night. I had a prime rib special and it was off the hook. I used to wonder how "kid friendly" they'd be, but... More

Our experience at the Prince and the Pauper was wonderful in every way. The service, the food, the atmosphere exceeded our expectations. We spent 5 days in Woodstock and this was by far the best food we had during our visit.

Excellent food. Nice quiet romantic spot. The food was delicious, try the calamari or the mussels.. wonderful! We had the duck and the lamb chop, both were excellent. Must visit if you are in the area.

We recently had dinner at the Prince & the Pauper during our stay in Woodstock and the experience was underwhelming at best. I had expected the ambiance to be more upscale, but was willing to overlook that given we were in a rural area of the country and knowing, rustic can sometimes be spectacular. Sadly, the experience didn't live up... More

We were introduced, rudely and were surprised by this. The man who greeted us thought we didn't have reservations but changed his tone when he found out we did. Another couple walked in after us and did not have reservations and were told no availability in an unfriendly tone. They asked for another local referral and he stated there were... More
