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

Thank you for joining us for dinner and sharing your well thought-out review! Richardson's Tavern is a terrific alternative to our fine-dining restaurant, The Red Rooster; and as you found out, you don't' have to sacrifice great cuisine in exchange for the convivial pub-like atmosphere!

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.

It's always full and one must wait 20 to 30 minutes. The food is average with not to many items to decide from. The food is carried thru public hallways without a cover and I barely missed having a collision with a server one time. The upholstery in the booths is pretty thin and one does not want sit for...

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.

Thank you for visiting us in Woodstock for Wassail Weekend! Wassail is an incredible Christmas celebration and brings thousands of visitors to our beautiful village. The Inn certainly is overflowing with revelers on Saturday afternoon, and our evening Wassail Banquet is also very popular!

We were nt staying at the Inn, but stopped for lunch on our way through Woodstock. Service was good, and the food was very good. Price for lunch is a bit upscale, but fair enough fro this kind of a facility.

My husband, girlfriend and I had dinner on a Thursday evening at Richardson's and we all were disappointed and underwhelmed. The service was poor, which surprised us since it was not a busy evening, and the food and small portions were not worth the prices. My husband's quail and accompanying fingerling potatoes was such an inadequate amount of food that... More

Ambiance of a pub, gastropub, plus nice restaurant. Because it's part of the inn, it can get busy but seating is available both at a high bar long table and regular seating. Enjoyed the setting although it can get noisy as the tavern fills up. Our food was tasty and delicious, nicely presented, and filling. The pork schnitzel was $12,... More
