This is a lovely old inn that we'd been meaning to try for years. But it wasn't a great experience. Interior: warm wood interior but with random textiles tacked to the walls with plastic pushpins; dirty curtains covering a doorway with bugs and things collecting along the sill. The menu: odd, limited, expensive. Our water was served in dirty glass jars. A mix of fairly sophisticated classics like strip steak with imaginative sounding sides along with a middle eastern and vegan, but then a hamburger plate and fish tacos. We opted for the fish tacos which were ok. They were 3, not generously stuffed with a single small fried piece of fish and a bland slaw, which came with a tasty hot salsa and just over a thimbleful of lukewarm black beans. We had no drinks or other items from the menu. With tip and tax, $27 for each meal. One staff seemed rather distracted. We came away with a confused feeling about what the Stagecoach is trying to do here and it gives the impression of struggling with its identity.

Our goal at the Tavern is to provide a menu with both familiar comforts - like an excellent locally-sourced burger - alongside interesting and surprising things our chef comes up with, an identity we're pretty comfortable with these days. We feel our pricing is fair for our food - including the tacos - which is sourced locally & sustainably and made entirely from scratch right down to the tasty habanero sauce. I'm sorry that we neglected some details that detracted from your experience, and we're definitely fixing those you pointed out and others as we spruce up for spring. I'd love to have you back in so we can have the chance to do better!

Interesting menu, great surroundings, lovely ambiance, terrific service and music downstairs (check the listings for performance schedule). Even without the music, this is a rural treat. Very laid-back and comfortable; a rustic inn on a quiet country lane. You cannot go wrong really!!

The Stage Coach Tavern is very rustic - serving delicious food and cocktails! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the fireplace in the lounge area before having dinner every night!

Fabulous! There is a new chef, originally from San Francisco who has lived in Mexico. She brings a wonderful blend of flavors to the dishes. The menu is varied and everything is delicious. I am local so I am able to dine here often.

In an area with a lot of good food, the best meal we had during our 3-day trip was at the Stagecoach Tavern at Race Brook Lodge. What a pleasant surprise! The decor was charming, the seating comfortable and the service very friendly and attentive. And the food — oh, my! There were a couple of us, so we got to taste most of the menu. Short ribs and scallops were my two favorite dishes, both as good as anything back home in San Francisco. I even loved the fish tacos, something I never would have ordered on my own. Every dish had its own distinct and delicious flavors. A real gem. Don’t miss it if you are in the area.
