The Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, VT is a classic center of hospitality. I found the service and ambiance to be stellar. Outside the inn, the town is a trip back into time. It is rich in history and has many charming shops. Woodstock is well worth a visit.

Thank you for joining us in Richardson's Tavern and for your very kind words not only about our resort but the village of Woodstock! It's easy to understand why Yankee Magazine and others have often referred to Woodstock as “the prettiest small town in America,” and we like to think our town is as friendly and welcoming as it is...

We came here, as non-resort guests, for dinner. The restaurant is in a hotel, so be prepared for a long wait if you don't have reservations. Our group of 7 were given a 2.5 hour wait. Thankfully, it was only 45 minutes. They have a great menu and good wine list. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals - Swedish... More

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.

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.
