“Delicious Food and Great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

Our visit to Ye Olde Tavern was a pleasant one. My husband had the filet and I had the special filet with scallops in a barbecue sauce. Veggies were sweet carrots and cabbage. Combined with a wonderful glass of wine, our dining experience was very pleasurable. It was well worth the price.

Thank you for taking the time to tell everyone about our historic tavern and of course thank you for dining with us. Adams, Ma is not too far away and in nice weather it is a beautiful day trip.

“Simple but yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

Have stayed in Manchester for years, but first time we tried it. We were there in time for the early bird special - a great value. Scrod was excellent, as were scallops. We'll definitely come back.

I am delighted that you had such a wonderful first experience. I must agree, the Early Bird Menu is a great value. There are not many places in Southern Vermont that you can get a complete meal for only $16.00. Thank you for taking the time to let everyone know about our historic tavern and I look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Vermont. Cheers! Michael

Wow, you really did not enjoy your evening. Can you let us know what you ate and what you did not like about the service? We can not learn from our mistakes, if we do not know what they are. The next time you are in Vermont, I hope you will think again about giving us a try and please introduce yourself. Michael

“Most amazing Calves Liver ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

2nd time here on a Ski Trip to Southern Vermont. we had a delightful experience each time. The Calves Liver is the best we have ever had period. I normally shy away from Liver but this was outstanding. They start you off with these delicious Cranberry Fritters. Several rooms in a romantic setting with fire places and a cute little Bar too. Very prompt friendly service as well. I will return next time we visit Manchester for sure.

Looking at your picture, you must be the youngest lover of calves liver ever! About 5 years ago, people asked us to put it on our menu and since then it has been a very popular item. I am so happy you enjoyed everything. Thank you for the kind words and joining us for dinner. Michael
