Nice cozy environment on a snowy night but way overpriced for what it is. 21.00 each for a whistle pig 2 oz manhattan. Other local establishments charge 16-18 for the same. Salad (12.00) was OK. Baked macaroni and cheese (appetizer portion for 14.00) was good. My husband's salmon (25.) was also pretty good but the pumpkin hash was undercooked. All... More

We spent this past weekend at the Woodstock Inn & Resort. It was fantastic! We ate at both the Red Rooster (separate review) and also here at the Tavern. The food was excellent.

Thank you for this very nice review of your evening in Richardson's Tavern! You’re right that The Tavern is a perfect spot to dine and unwind after a full day of outdoor activity, and the conditions were terrific when you were here!

When staying at the Woodstock Inn, we enjoy our visits to Richardson's Tavern. We love the decor and the food is really good. The staff is friendly and provides good service. The seafood combination stew is delicious and the Vermont Maple cake very tasty. Their burgers are good too.

A lovely atmosphere, but drinks are pricey. Still, a cozy place to come to just chill out for a bit on a cold winter's night.

The Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, VT is an upscale hotel with high end restaurants. Richardson's Tavern is their casual pub restaurant with really good food and a very reasonable price! The Tavern looks like a typical English Tavern with wood ceilings, small tables and low lighting. There is also a very nice wood burning fireplace with a few popular tables... More

We have always enjoyed Richardson's and we were not disappointed last night. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the scallops and oysters and his Maple Creme Brûlée. I had the fondue which was great. My only complaint was that the bread was too stale. Should have been a little less.

The hotel was sold out and appears not suited to handle a sellout crowd. It was standing room only at the bar, restaurant, common areas, lobby and lounge room. The crush of people was unsettling and uncomfortable. They should be astute enoug to set up other temporary lounge areas on busy weekends.
