Right in the center of Woodstock, Bentley’s is open for lunch and dinner daily with a varied menu and a popular bar. There are some vegetarian options on the menu. The wings are particularly good!

1101 Cloudland Road, Woodstock, VT 05091
A farm to table restaurant open most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, by reservation only. The drive to the farm is beautiful and although it is only 5 miles from the center of Woodstock it feels much farther on the narrow windy road. Menus are posted on the website on Wednesdays and only one choice is served at each dinner (with a vegetarian option). The meat is pasture raised on their own farm and is fantastic. It is a little pricey but well worth the splurge. Thursdays are less expensive, served family style with two courses while the weekend is a more elaborate meal. Bring your own wine. (Small corkage fee).
