The Prince & The Pauper: Rave-Worthy Vermont Dining

As Innkeepers, it’s always nice to send guests to a restaurant where we know they’ll not only enjoy great food, but have a wonderful ambiance and excellent service as well. The Prince & The Pauper in Woodstock is just that sort of place.Illustration of a domed serving dish, wine bottle and glass.

It’s a warm and welcoming restaurant with a range of menu options. A more casual Bistro Menu offers a mix of homey dishes, while the Prix Fixe has more elegant dishes with global influences. Whichever you choose, you’ll find the quality and flavors equally exceptional.

Rotisserie chicken, pork schnitzel and Chef Lydia’s Grandmother’s meatballs are three of the delicious Bistro Menu choices. You’ll also find a nice selection of flatbread pizzas.

A favorite on the Prix Fixe Menu (Nancy’s pick!) is the house-smoked salmon appetizer, served with capers, onions and horseradish cream sauce on toast points. The signature entree is carré d’agneau royale, a Wellington-style dish of lamb with spinach and mushroom duxelles baked in puff pastry. Roast duckling with Bartlett pears and pan-seared sea scallops are two more of the many delectable selections.

Desserts here are also deliciously tempting, such as homemade blueberry almond tart and the restaurant’s own ice creams.

A small, cozy bar is a nice place to start or finish a meal. You’ll find it’s a favorite spot for locals.
