A great atmosphere, but the service, food, and cleanliness was very poor. The waitress was unfriendly. We were brought dirty stacked plates for our appetizers, not sure if it was coffee or some sauce stuck on several of them. Anything that was battered was horrible, bland and very cake like. We love to spend money on good food, but it... More

We did not eat here. It is also an INN. We stayed here and it was lovely. The Stone Hearth Inn was just what we were looking for! The owners were very nice and accommodating and the room was comfy! In the mornings we were seated in a lovely area overlooking a beautiful field-like back yard. The coffee was good... More

We all had turkey pot pie. It was served in a soup bowl not a crock pot. It was supposed to be topped with a puff pastry. The pastry was as flat as a pop tart and not very flaky. A little over cooked. The restaurant was also a little chilly. We needed a little heat to take off the... More

This pub has a very Vermont feel with terrific hosts behind the bar. They bend overbackwards and make great conversation about the local area!

A drop in, pulled by their early bird special sign. Don't think they will catch me again. Food was OK but over priced and service was very slow. I don't understand that for there was no one else eating.

My wife and I ordered Salmon and a steak. The salmon was perfect but the steak after being sent back twice was still not right. The order was for medium rare and first came well done, then it was nearly raw inside and when it came back the third tome is was no better. Meanwhile the same old fries were... More

The Stone Hearth has a great vibe from the minute pull onto the property. It's a cozy Vermont location. They carry a range of craft beers and the bartender was very helpful describing them. The menu may be small, but there is an option for everyone. I went with the Naz- a Panini with housemade Pesto- it was perfect. My... More

On "Black Friday" this year the "younger" crowd from our family gathering decided to go out for a drink. My wife and I had found the Stone Hearth a couple of years ago, and wanted to share it with the family. We proceeded to have a great time, with the owners chatting with us, great craft beers at very good... More

We had outstanding service with Amanda as our waitress. The food was excellent and the atmosphere definitely had a vibe of tons of locals make this their "go to" place. When we are back in that area this is a must go place for us.

Went here for lunch with a crowd of about ten because MacLoimans up the road would not accept the size of our party. Walked in and got the sense we were at home and being treated that way! The menu for lunch was small but there was nothing on the menu you couldn't like. All the food was clearly fresh... More
