Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner. Small and intimate. Amazing service. Incredible wine list. Recommend the meatballs. Priced reasonably.

Have been here many times over the course of 20 years and I can't remember a restaurant that nails their dishes every time. Clemens the bartender has the most ebullient demeanor of any I've had the pleasure of serving me. Shout out to Vinny!

This restaurant did not disappoint. Attentive and friendly wait person helped us choose two delightful dishes, pork schnitzel and a tasty strip steak. Started off with a large salad for my dining partner (included with the entree) while I had the cheddar ale soup (quite a large bowl, also included)...this soup was fantastic. In addition, warm bread was served with... More

The Prince and the Pauper is an excellent restaurant, tucked away on a little side-street in the village. Whether eating in the pub-area, or the main restaurant seating, you're sure to have an excellent meal experience. Great food options and combinations, good wines and beers, excellent and friendly service. We always go back for their version of "Lamb Wellington". Outstanding.

For decades, the P&P has long been a charming, reliable destination for Woodstock residents and visitors alike. It retains its charm -- down a little side entrance next to the Historical Center -- and the service is still quite exceptional. But on our last couple of visits, we have found that the kitchen had dropped back a notch or two.... More

Shocked to discover the emphasis is not on locally sourced food. I don't even know if the butter was from Vermont; the salmon sure wasn't. I guess since they cater to the local residents, they want to have food from everywhere, not just locally procured. The wines by the glass were lacking in variety. Nonetheless, the cook did a great... More

We both enjoyed our meals (pork stuffed with apricots & filet mignon) as well as deserts (apple turnover & lemon curd w/cream). Our server was business-like and efficient but not very warm, though the hostess was very friendly. Nice old-time pub-like atmosphere; not noisy.
