Stopped in there during our annual ski trip to New Hampshire. The pub has a nice selection of beers and the food is pretty decent. If you're looking for good burgers or other pub type fare, Truant's is a place to go. The New England clam chowder was very good and the sandwich I had, ' the Class Clown '... More

We missed Truants during our first drive thru Woodstock ~ if you blink you may miss it. They have parking out back which is nice. Food was pretty good - burger and fish tacos...pretty standard. They have s full bar so I was able to try one of their cosmos which was okay.

My husband and I went here after visiting the Ice Castles. It came up on Waze and since we were looking for a pub-style establishment for something a little different. The food was excellent. I recommend the meatloaf. My husband had the fried chicken dinner. Great atmosphere, wonderful staff. Our waitress, Mercedes, was attentive but not overbearing. You'll have to... More

We stopped by Truant's Taverne around 5 PM on a January- Saturday evening for dinner, before going to see the "Ice Castles." We were seated right away. The service was a bit slow, but we had the time. The bench seating was rustic, not the most comfortable. The food was OK and the price was reasonable.

Thank you to others who rated this. Think web site says they have been open for 38 years - so yes, they are doing something right. They are in the lower floor of a building and it has a great warm, wood, pub vibe. Our waitress Ceana (prounouced like Siena) was very nice. Had great onion soup and my beef... More

We've been coming to Truant's for about 25 years ... and its still as good now as it was then. Drinks are reasonably prices ... soups are hearty ... salads are plentiful and sandwiches are delicious! We especially love their fries!! A great, casual atmosphere perfect for families or anyone.

My family and I went this past weekend, although it was quite busy, the food did not disappoint. I had the Turkey Valedictorian with sweet potato fries and it was perfect after a long day of skiing. I would recommend to anyone who wants a casual meal in a pub environment.
