During our weekend road trips we end up traveling along various routes in Vermont. Often times we have no idea where we are except the route or town based upon a sign we pass.
On this fine road trip we actually started to get a little hungry. Finally finding a location where cell service was reasonable to search restaurants nearby we happened upon The Barn Restaurant and Tavern in Pawlet, VT. We looked at their menu options and pricing via the internet and decided to give it a try.
Upon entering The Barn Restaurant and Tavern in Pawlet, VT we quickly found it was a cozy, rustic, yet elegant restaurant. Lighting was provided by a dimly lit set of candles at each table, so the atmosphere was certainly darker than we were used to. The menu options were a bit on the elegant side from what this NH country gal is used to but I soon selected an option.
We were pleasantly happy with the unique environment and comfy rustic appeal of The Barn Restaurant and Tavern. The food was delicious and the rolls with butter? My weakness.
The waiter was relatively decent and the other guests were happy, quiet and enjoying their own family gathering. If I had to say exactly what my feelings were about The Barn Restaurant and Tavern in Pawlet, VT I would simply have to say it was a worthy experience and while I recall us having some concerns in 2016 when we visited, I can still say it is one of my favorite experiences we have had on our road trips for dining out. I admit, I felt a little fancy eating here!
The prices were a little higher than average so if you are on a budget, do visit their menu and pricing before heading off to visit. They are in the middle of what seems to be nowhere Vermont but I tell you, one must experience The Barn Restaurant and Tavern in Pawlet, VT at least once to gain their own perspective of this quaint, rustic yet elegant location to dine.
