Tucked away in a corner of an alley the less than impressive exterior becomes transformed once inside. Warm and intimate with an impressive menu containing many very appealing entrees. The rack of lamb was not traditional but it was excellent. The veal dish was also very good.

We had a reservation at The Prince and the Pauper as we knew it would be a busy fall foliage weekend and it was bustling! We were seated on time although many people, presumably without reservations, were waiting. Our server was charming and knowledgable about the food. The pace was very leisurely, perhaps slow by some standards, but we enjoyed... More

This place is truly the hot ticket in Woodstock, VT. I tried and failed to get reservations my first night. I came anyway in hopes of getting a spot at the bar. Ultimately, I ended up waiting 45 minutes and left when I was told the wait could be another 2 hours. They did bring me a drink, and refused... More

Very nice meal at the Prince and the Pauper, although not five star! Service good and food quality good, but there was something just missing. For example, would you serve tomato sauce on a main course dinner of sirloin steak and not just ask whether a person would like mustard? Altogether however the food and wine was very pleasant indeed.

On our last night in Woodstock we wandered to the Prince and the Pauper for dinner late, with no reservation. We did have a wait, and it was crowded seating. The food was very good AND reasonably priced. I have the sesame seared salmon and my husband enjoyed the spicy meatballs and pasta. The staff was pleasant and attentive. We... More

The food at The Prince and the Pauper is standard good restaurant food. I live in LA so I wouldn't call it daring or audacious, but it was very good. The place has a pleasant, warm atmosphere and the staff was friendly. They're all a bit more serious in Vermont than we are here at home so I was amused... More

Really good food. Visited last night and the service is attentive. Good choice of appetisers and entrees - all of which came with salad with crumbled blue cheese - delicious! (Husband asked for his without blue cheese but still got it - not a problem as I ate it!!!) we both had fillet steak which was delicious. I couldn't eat... More

I'd describe this restaurant as fabulous down-home cooking which, if that's what one wants, this is the place! We expected something closer to fine dining. So, for us, the food was average. I had the pork which was ok. My husband had the spaghetti which was good. The restaurant was full on Tuesday night and, the staff was still fabulous!

Ate here on a Friday night, had reservations so no waiting, food was good but pricy. Had the salmon which was very good, the sauces around it were too spicy to eat ( wasabi dribbled on the plate and a piece of hot ginger) Small portions, so there was plenty of room for dessert, had the carrot cake which was...
