“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We had the good fortune to eat dinner here on our recent trip to Woodstock, VT. A local recommended it. All the ingrdients are very fresh (farm to table) and the portions are generous. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. Our family of four enjoyed the pork chop, steak, bolagnese and tortellini dishes. Wow- it was superb. To top it off, we were seated in front of large bay window overlooking the beautiful flowers and green hills in the distance. It was an awesome dining experienece.

“Tasty food, large portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Ate here with a female friend in the tavern. The prices are high and the portions too large--$14 for a salad with bleu cheese and pecans and $26 for a pasta with pork entree. Although we are normal eaters, we had heard the portions were large, so we split both the salad and the entree, which was more than enough for both of us. Both were delicious but we were glad not to have ordered separately. We would have wasted our money, as we couldn't take it with us.

My only complaint was the bread. They charge $5 for their home-baked bread and two tiny pats of herb butter. The bread was good but nothing special. However, they bring practically an entire loaf. If you are a large party, there is enough for everyone, but for two people, it was too much and too expensive. We took it with us, but it was stale the next day, even though it was kept in a plastic bag. I guess the waitress knew that would happen, as she said the bread would be good for French toast. I would not order it again.

The wine list is reasonably priced--generally about $7/glass and about $24/bottle. In most restaurants, you would get the very cheapest grocery store wine for that price, but their selection was better, even though I didn't care for the one I ordered--a rioja.

The service was very good and pleasant.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Ate dinner here as part of a party of 10, celebrating a family birthday. Though the menu was somewhat limited, all we're able to find something to enjoy (including the picky eaters). Service was outstanding, food was excellent. White and dark chocolate bread pudding will be remembered for many years!

“Delicious food--great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

The Barnard Inn was a great find. It offers formal dining as well as a more casual tavern area. I ate in the tavern and had an unexpectedly good meal--first rate all the way. The clam chowder was very good but the best part for me was the chicken schnitzel. It was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. They have a good wine list, and offer many beers including several local craft beers. The service was excellent too. I will definitely return when I visit Vermont again.

“Wonderful Pulled Pork”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

We ate here with our children and friends during Feb. vacation week and loved the food. We made reservations and they kindly recommended and seated us in the more casual section of the restaurant. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered including the wonderful salads. The time between courses was a bit long but we were with good friends so the kids managed their hunger pangs fairly well. I would focus on ordering appetizers and main courses because the desserts were nothing outstanding. The atmosphere and the meals including all versions of pork are excellent.
