My name is Will GARDNER and several months ago I wrote a very critical review of Richardson's Tavern and last night I returned to see how it had improved. Management had responded immediately and appropriately within hours of my last posting. I wanted no compensation nor would I have accepted any. I'm a local and simply want a terrific place... More

We were nt staying at the Inn, but stopped for lunch on our way through Woodstock. Service was good, and the food was very good. Price for lunch is a bit upscale, but fair enough fro this kind of a facility.

Thank you for stopping into our Woodstock Inn for lunch when passing through Woodstock recently, and sharing your candid review of the experience! We don't' actually serve lunch in Richardson's Tavern, so I believe you are referring to our other restaurant, The Red Rooster. I’m glad you enjoyed it and hope you’ll stop in again soon. I’d also suggest Richardson's... More

My husband, girlfriend and I had dinner on a Thursday evening at Richardson's and we all were disappointed and underwhelmed. The service was poor, which surprised us since it was not a busy evening, and the food and small portions were not worth the prices. My husband's quail and accompanying fingerling potatoes was such an inadequate amount of food that... More

Ambiance of a pub, gastropub, plus nice restaurant. Because it's part of the inn, it can get busy but seating is available both at a high bar long table and regular seating. Enjoyed the setting although it can get noisy as the tavern fills up. Our food was tasty and delicious, nicely presented, and filling. The pork schnitzel was $12,... More

We went to Richardson’s Tavern at the Woodstock Inn on Sunday night. Though there was a 45-minute wait for a table, we luckily found seats at the bar where we shared appetizers and some nice wine. We enjoyed the service and atmosphere so much that we decided to return the next night (October 31st) and unexpectedly encountered a plethora of... More

Great atmosphere, good service. Loved the mac & cheese. My husband had a filet, which was cooked perfectly rare. We enjoyed the ability to order from two menus for both restaurants within the resort. Grilled lamb chops were divine! No reservations needed. Atmosphere is casual and cozy.

My husband and I had eaten here in June and really enjoyed it so came back with friends, who come here often. While the food that we had was tasty and nicely presented, the portions were extremely small and we were all disappointed. My mushroom dish was a "small plate" so I wasn't expecting a huge plate of food but... More
