The restaurant is acclaimed as one of Vermont's finest, drawing GOURMET MAGAZINE'S highest rating from food critic Peter S. Jennison, who writes, "The coarse Ballymaloe bread that arrives at your table with a crock of sweet butter is, almost alone, worth the trip. We have never been disappointed by the cuisine." House specialties include homemade breads and soups, fresh salads, seafood, horseradish crusted cod and an award-winning wine list. We are committed to our local farmers and feature locally grown produce whenever the seasons allow.
