That night, I had a Yankee pot roast that was heavenly. The beef was tender and flavorful and the crust divine- I haven't had a dish like that in a really long time. They grow many of their own vegetables and get others from local farms and markets. We also had a salmon dish and actually splurged on an apple dessert that evening that really was special-
The owners have two very friendly German Shepherds that oftentimes come into the tavern. We were 'warned' about these huge dogs, so we weren't alarmed when they barked and greeted us in the parking lot. They are completely friendly and seeing that the ducks are still walking around there, the dogs must be pretty gentle.
If you're in Barnard, Vermont, I have to recommend this lovely restaurant for a great meal- many locals were there that evening and I really got the feeling that it is THE place to be on any given night-

|The wind had taken out most of the leaves|
|Outdoor seating area in warm weather months|

LOVE the hand-painted signs!
Tummies full, it was time to get back to the inn for a great night's sleep....which was in walking distance of the restaurant....
