Staff was very nice; went with what the waitress recommended - filet mignon and it was weak and fatty...more like a ribeye. Prices were also high for the level of food and location,

Ate in the tavern and it was very good. If the menu is not to your liking you can order an entree from the restaurant menu

The meal we had at this inn was truly outstanding - and this was in the attractive bar, not the fine dining restaurant. We were staying just down the road at the brilliant Maple Leaf Inn and came here expecting typical pub food. Instead we had the best meal of our entire 2 week trip around New England. I would give the chef a Michellin star!

On our first night in Vermont we took our innkeeper's suggestion and headed to the Barnard Inn for dinner. The more formal dining room was full so we booked a table in their casual tavern room. It was a bit noisy but had a rustic charm and most of the diners appeared to be local..a good sign :)

Service was slow and a bit too carefree for a couple of New Yorkers like us. Particularly since the prices were in line with any Manhattan restaurant. But it was a chilly evening and we were warm in the cozy room and looking forward to a good dinner.

An appetizer of Cesar salad was good but average. The duck liver pate', however, was billed as homemade but left us in some doubt. It was also so heavily perfumed with truffle oil that it was difficult to discern any other flavor. An entree of beef stew was hearty and well made with tasty side of sweet potato mash. Poor service aside, the food overall was pretty good but not worth the expensive price.

Furthermore, the proprietors apparently own a large male German Shepard who roams the property freely. We're currently raising a puppy and therefore, feel an affinity with dog owners so we didn't mind when the Shepard walked through the dining room and into the kitchen. We did mind, however, when we ran into him again in the pitch black parking lot after dinner where he barked and howled at customers and then relieved himself on their cars. Uh...no...we won't be coming back...and we'll send you the car wash bill.

A historical building with excellent food a service. The prices are above average but the portions, quality, ambience and service are worth it
