The barkeeper made sure you enjoyed your evening with engaging conversation. Also enjoyed talking to others at the bar. We only had soup, but meals served to others looked good. Shame it was shut the following(sunday) Evening.

I had eaten at The Tavern many years ago and was anxious to try it again--very disappointing. I started with a cup of clam chowder which looked very well done in terms of proportion--nice mix of potatoes, clams, etc. However, it was extremely salty. I've...More

Stopped in here and was expecting just a bar but the restaurant was very good. The menu had so many good options it was hard to decide. Once the food arrived, everyone was very happy. Our server was very kind and helpful.

We met friends here and had a pleasant and delicious meal. The setting itself was filled with lots of light since there are plenty of windows and skylights. We had a round table (which can seat 6-8) which made conversation much easier. The dining room...More

The atmosphere is perfect for a quiet evening. The wait staff is friendly and very helpful. The fire place made it ever so warm and inviting.

Good place. I had the duck tacos and they were excellent! Not busy at all. Maybe it is because is election night and people are depressed and not feeling good about the choices we have. I also had the Long Trail Ale...good beer.

The Tavern at the Colonial Motel allows for a fun night out without the inconvenience of driving to get there. After a long day in meetings, out on the town or hitting the slopes visit the Tavern to refuel. If you're craving sweet desserts or just want to unwind at the bar, The Tavern is the perfect place to grab a bite and a drink. We have one of the best draft beer and wine selections in the area. Our exiting new menu is reasonable priced. Every dish is a winner! In the wintertime get cozy in the Tavern with two brick fireplaces blazing to warm you up after a day on the slopes. Reserve your room online and plan on dining at the Tavern in Brattleboro, Vermont soon.
