Description: The Dorset Inn...always a treat! All of us here love food and enjoy sharing that with you. The warm and welcoming ambiance of the historic red dining room and cozy New England tavern allows guests to relax and enjoy the food, the wine and the friendly hospitality. As a member of Vermont Fresh Network, we support as many local farms and businesses as possible. Our cuisine is an uncomplicated, bistro-style that demonstrates classic culinary techniques and traditions with regional influences and reflects the freshest ingredients available. To showcase Vermont's four unique seasons, the menu changes frequently.

I had a fabulous dinner at the Dorset Inn over the weekend for their annual Kentucky Derby party! It was such fun. Great appetizers as we waited for the race, fun atmosphere. It is always an elegant New England atmosphere. After the race there was a wonderful Derby themed menu in the dining room which was decorated in style. The Inn never disappoints and I always meet new fun people there.

Rooms clean, Inn quaint (old, charming), people at front desk very helpful and kind. Bed was comfy, bathroom spacious, breakfasts AMAZING!! Went with a Groupon Deal so it was a great bargain. The area is beautiful - a must see!! We did eat in the restaurant one night - a bit overpriced for what you get - food was really good, but $15 for a burger was a bit much. That in mind, it was really nice to come down from our room, eat dinner downstairs in restaurant, and then head back upstairs - maybe that makes the $15 burger worth it. Will come and stay again and will recommend to family/friends. Wonderful weekend!

I've eaten here multiple times, and I've never been let down. The food is always great, and the room is so quaint and charming. My Valentine's Day dinner here was great! If you're in the area, don't miss the chance to eat here for a quintessential and elegant Vermont experience.

While staying in Dorset at Barrows House we wandered over to our last visit's favorite, The Dorset Inn. The tavern is just real Vermont with a wood fireplace. Very cozy on a cold winter's night. Patrick, the bartender, and Nuni, our server, have been with the inn for ages. They're knowledgeable and fun. The filet was mouth watering and the mushroom gratin delicious. The salmon was cooked to perfection. Save room for dessert. We had a sampler that was divine. As guests at Barrows House, breakfast is served at The Dorset Inn. Whoever's making the eggs benedict makes an amazing hollandaise!
