Great place for business lunch with coworkers. Seats in bar window give room to spread out, bar is warm and inviting, the craft beer selection is extensive and food is great. Try the tavern burger with a poutine side dish.

Nice pub/bar in Middlebury that serves top notch food. Started out with oysters that were fresh and sweet served with two different dipping sauces. Followed by the grilled Spanish octopus which was tender and delicious. The main course was the Huntsman's Pie made with venison,...More

While walking in the downtown area, this place got recommended by a local. It looked like a fun place, with dollar bills on the ceiling. Very unfriendly service, overpriced and tried charging us twice on a few items. Getting those reversed was a time consuming...More

Came highly recommended from a local. Now wishing we had just driven to Bristol for dinner. From the initial greeting to the wait Staff, the service was lousy. Rather than a warm greeting, our party of 9 was asked twice if we had a reservation...More

Certainly has a great "pub" feel with the taps to back it up! Food was average, even for pub fare. Service was less than attentive - kitchen was slow. Not overly busy or understaffed so not sure what the issue was. They certainly could have...More

We went to this restaurant for our first lunch in Middlebury. The tavern's atmosphere had a good vibe, but if you're interested in healthy eating, this is not the place. Everything looked delicious and probably tasted great, but as someone interested in clean eating, this...More
