“Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

In my opinion, this place has a great Vermont feel. The decor was rustic, it seemed like everybody there knew each other, and the employees (while laid back) were very nice.

As for decor, the walls and floor are rustic wood (a barn-like feel), and there were taps hanging along the walls, along with some retro skiing posters. Kind of a good collection of things I think of when I think of Vermont.

The food was good. Burger was juicy, salad had a good dressing and nice selection of greens. Our dessert tasted good, but it was a cookie topped with ice cream served on top of a hot skillet, so we had to race to finish it before the ice cream melted all over the pan. Beer selection seemed good.

Maybe some people are thrown off by the name... it sounds like a fancier place than it is, but the sign does say "Stone Hearth Inn and Tavern," so as long as you expect more of a tavern setting than fine dining, then it's a great place. It just had a really good rustic feel that was a good fit for a fall Vermont vacation. We enjoyed it and would eat there again if in the area.

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This restaurant is located a little way out of Chester. There is a choice between a pub like atmosphere or a dining room - we chose the dining room. It was very pleasant overlooking a really pleasant garden. It was clean enough, but the waitress could have looked more professional.
The menu was rather limited and we did have a bit of a problem finding something that appealed.
The meal was all right but nothing memorable.
WE sould have gone to a pub in town without driving down the road.

“Great Country Inn and setting”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Ive had fun times and good laughs at the Stone Hearth Inn. Beautiful setting with gorgeous gardens and outside patio areas with a large outside fire pit to enjoy while relaxing with friends. Good value,fair portions and warm and cozy barn like setting in the bar area. Vermont at it's core. The Innkeepers are very friendly and accomodating as to your needs and make sure your being well cared for. Worth the drive to a picture perfect village Chester VT. enjoy your stay, as I always have.

“Really great selection of delicious wings.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

I am so pleased to have found this tavern. I have been driving past it for years and never gave it a chance until yesterday. I'm back tonight ((Sunday at 5:30) and the people are just now wandering in for wing night. I had no problem getting a table. Plenty of attentive but busy staff.

“Delicious food, Laid back atmosphere”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Recently visited Stone Hearth and had a fantastic time. The drinks were delicious and the salad was exactly what I was looking for. Don't leave without trying the cookie sundae!
