Stopped in on our first night in Stowe. The onion soup is to die for! The pulled pork small plate was equally impressive.

The burger was just ok and I was not a fan of the steak fries. They were large, hard, quarter potatoe type fries that didn't hit the spot.

Overall enjoyed the experience and would visit again but maybe just for drinks and appetizers.

We started off in the bar with drinks and apps. Ross was a great bartender! Dining room was an amazing setting for our delicious dinner! Suprised by some of the bad reviews on here? This place has great service, beer, scotch, food, and ambience. Bad reviewers need to relax and soak this place up cause its awesome!!

This was by far our favorite dining experience while in Stowe. The pub has an extraordinary atmosphere both in its beautifully appointed decor and the welcoming hospitality of the staff. We were blessed with a very engaging, entertaining and attentive server (David), the food was delicious (best onion soup I've ever tasted), and our entire experience from the moment we walked in to our departure was top-notch and memorable. Highly recommend! Thank you for a perfect dining experience!

On first walking in the warmth, atmosphere and friendliness of the staff is such a welcome home. The table settings are quaint and elegant and reminiscent of a classic English pub all at the same time. The well kept wooden tables and pewter beer steins hanging from the ceiling give it a nostalgic feel. Most importantly, the staff has always welcomed my children at an early age and was gracious to my wife and family. What separated pickwick's from the next inn is the delicious food, which has a pleasantly diverse menu, is well-prepared and will please even a NYC snob but come prepared with an appetite - the menu is not lite fare. But if you enjoy duck entrees, wild boar sausage, fancied up ma and cheese, and mulligatawny soup chock full o' goodies, you will not leave hungry. Best not to plan on eating desert, which seems to be a running joke with the staff. Better leave some
Room though to sample the delicious English ales in draft which are more like desert anyways. Lastly, you may not notice pickwick's from the road, but I sure am glad I stumbled upon it 15 years ago. Cheers! Alex and Chuck

Food Excellent Decor Excellent Service Excellent
This was the BEST steak I have had in a long time, one of the better restaurants in Stowe VT that
I have been to. The staff was incredibly friendly and informative. I ordered a martini and was very pleased not to mention it was half the price of many other places in the area.
