My wife and I stopped here on a recent tour of the Hudson Valley area, and it was one of the highlights of a great trip overall. We ate somewhere new each time, and were looking for a nice place for a somewhat expensive "splurge" meal. We decided to give it a try, even though some reviews panned their service.
It's a little hard to find, situated right next to a golf course outside of the center of New Paltz. Walking up from the parking lot, it looks like you're going into someone's house, and the sign isn't terribly prominent; we weren't sure we had the right place.
But the tavern is a quiet, intimate place in which they've converted several different rooms of (apparently) an old house into separate dining areas. Our table was in the old kitchen/fireplace area, no far from the bar and near the fireplace. Maybe 8 or 9 tables in the room total.
Though we're not cocktail people, we tried a couple of selections from their vintage cocktails menu, and thought they were all delicious. The food was excellent, and the service was good. Though we were there in a pretty slow time of year, the pace was ... leisurely. Maybe in the high tourist season it's annoyingly slow -- but we wanted a delicious, relaxing & intimate dinner, and that's exactly what we got.
*Definitely* highly recommend it if this sounds like your type of place. We'll be going back.
