Long regarded as one of Vermont’s finest restaurants, The Prince & The Pauper now celebrates its 43rd year of excellence with our executive chef Lyda Lemire and proprietors Heidi Talbert and Vincent Talento. Our Prix Fixe Dinner Menu changes nightly and is inspired by flavors from around the globe. The Bistro Menu offers an eclectic selection of lighter fare, and both menus provide outstanding value and the same culinary excellence! We invite you to join us for a memorable evening. Our lounge opens for cocktails at 5:00 pm and dinner is served every evening beginning at 5:30 pm; 7 nights a week. You’ll find us at 24 Elm Street in the village of Woodstock, next to The Woodstock History Center (click here for directions). Our Prix Fixe Menu is always available à la Carte. The Bistro Menu is available Sunday through Friday with the exception of certain holiday weekends and special occasions. We are often asked about our dress code, our response is “evening, dressy casual, jackets are not required.”  We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

We will be closed on Tuesday 11/13 and Wednesday 11/14
