Once a year we come to Stratton for a skiing weekend . We gather for dinner each night , and The Dorset Inn has always been a favorite ! The food and service are extraordinary and the staff always friendly! It’s second to none. !!!
Very quaint and charming dining experience. Wait staff were accommodating, efficient and friendly. The food was fresh and delicious. Loved the short ribs. We will definitely return!
We live down the road from Dorset inn and have started coming in more regularly as my hubby and I need to get out more. Dinner is always amazing and we love to sit In the cozy tavern. Service is always impeccable.
The service and food at te Dorset Inn has been consistently good for years. We usually make a point to pay a visit whenever we are in the area.
Delicious food and very special desserts. Outstanding service. Our best meal during this Vermont skiing trip!
First time in Dorset inn. Lovely setting take you back in time. We ordered mostly from the specials and all dishes were excellent. We lived the short ribs. Service superb as well. Recommended.
We had an excellent meal at the Dorset Inn. It's one of our favorite restaurants but wow they really hit it out of the ballpark Sunday night and it was jam packed for the holiday. Maybe a little longer wait for food than normal but the quality was fantastic. Ate in the pub which was cozy and had a fire but that night it was very noisy as lots of big tables for groups. Still a great night.
We loved our meal at the Dorset Inn. The food was delicious, the ambience lovely, and the staff took excellent care of one in our party who has food allergies. Thank you!
Valentine day romantic setting. Lovely place.
Awesome experience. Fantastic wine list, gorgeous decor. Love it!!
The food and our server, Jillian, were absolutely wonderful.
The food was AMAZING. great service and very pleasant people. Definitely a place I would recommend to dine at.
If this restaurant were in europe or New York City, it would have Michelin stars. The scallops, salmon, and trout, mussels were all prepared beyond perfection. This restaurant is worthy of a long trip.
Food was good! Dessert special was amazing! Staff was attentive.
My wife and I loved the Inn. They were not full, so they upgraded us to a suite. The Inn had a breakfast room, pub and dining room. There is a quiet library to relax in and a cozy living room area with leather couch, chairs, game table and large wood burning fire place.
Dorset is such a quaint, quiet village with a bakery, library, general store and small common. The sidewalks are paved with marble. Dorset has a marble quarry. Lots of areas to snow shoe and hike. Skiing at Stratton and Bromley are only abt a half hour from Dorset.
The staff at the Inn were absolutely wonderful, very, very attentive to our needs.
We travel quite a bit and frequent bed and breakfasts most of the time. We had never been to Dorset Inn before, but we now intend to visit again.
Simply wonderful food and service. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and efficient. The atmosphere lovely New England elegance. Will go back!
Perfect New England setting. Not terribly busy as it is pre-holiday. Beautiful room, warm ambiance. Excellent food.
A perfect country inn, with exceptional service and some of the best food we have ever had. The scallops were done to perfection and served with lovely vegetables done just right. The pork loin chop was tender and juicy. For this quality of food, the prices are quite reasonable
Birthday celebration dinner did not disappoint. The food was very good but I would not say it was outstanding. Charming and well decorated for the holidays. Our server was very good. Attentive but not overbearing.
We came to Manchester for the day. I asked several local people where to eat. The 2 restaurants that were highly recommended by several people were closed on Sunday evening. This was a 3rd choice by one of the people.
There were 2 couples in the restaurant at 5:30 on Sunday evening when we ate. Our waitress was slow, seemed like she was high. She kept walking by us from the other table and did not ask if we wanted anything or even to stop and take our order.
We ran a B&B and understand the value of service. If the place had been full it would have been understanding but with only 2 tables this is not acceptable. We will never eat there again nor will we recommend it. If service is important to you, do not go here.
I had made reservations for the main room by the fireplace. We were seated in the back room in the corner and by a doorway . We kept getting Hit by passerby's and waiters. When I asked the Receptionist she said opps.
Best food and service in all of VT. It’s second to NONE!
Great old space with wonderful food and staff
We had several meals ate the Dorset Inn. The breakfasts were great with various daily specials to please anyone. The dinners were outstanding - large enough to be filling but not overwhelming. Daily specials were varied, complementing a solid menu. The apple fritters for desert were decadent and were complimented by pumpkin martinis. The wait staff were pleasant and responsive to any need. Reservations should be made if you want to eat at the best restaurant in the area
The vegetarian dish that was recently put on the menu was delicious. If you are vegetarian I recommend it!
My husband had his Dorset Inn burger that was ordered medium rare and it was delivered medium rare!
We ate in the bar and every table was taken. It was a bit noisy and did make it difficult for us to hear one another.
Prepare for a wonderful dining experience. Whenever we visit the area we make sure to dine here. Everything is beautifully prepared and presented.
The whole dinner from apps to dessert were great. Super service. Thank you!
Wonderful restaurant and Inn. Leave time to walk around and see the rooms downstairs. The dining room is beautiful, feels like an upscale pure-Vermont dining venue. The food is very good and the wine list is extensive. We loved our dinner here and will definitely come back.
We love the Dorset Inn, and we are never disappointed after a visit there. The staff is welcoming; the food is delicious; and the drinks are generous! This time, I had the braised rabbit which was moist, tender, falling off the bone, in a wonderful braising sauce. Instead of the mashed potato accompaniment, the kitchen met my request to substitute the cheddar polenta from another dinner choice. It was fantastic.
An authentic Vermont inn experience in Northern New England.
Our group enjoyed salad and steaks, plus wine and dessert.
The portions were not large, but we thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience.
Just perfect! Setting is classic upscale New England antique, every morsel of food seemed lovingly prepared and was served by efficient, professional and friendly staff. We had the melt-in-your-mouth cod plus the pork ribeye( which my husband said was the best pork he ever had) and then a wonderful breakfast the next day. A truly exceptional dining experience.
Excellent waitstaff! Delicious food. Charming atmosphere.
Food was delicious as always! We live it here, definitely one of our favorite restaurants!
The Dorset Inn is one of my favorite places on the planet. The food is consistently delicious and the dining room staff and ambiance are delightful. Perfect for couples, to celebrate a special occasion , pre-theater or just as a treat . I would not hesitate to recommend the Dorset Inn to anyone. GO!!
We had a lovely evening at The Dorset Inn. Our table wasn’t quite ready when we arrived so the hostess sent us to the bar to get a cocktail on her. All of our meals were wonderful and the desserts were heaven. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Exceptional food and service in a beautifully maintained inn in Vermont!
Absolutely delicious and great ambiance for a cloudy, rainy vacation day. We are making this a new tradition when in the Dorset area for our summer vacation.
Everything we had was lovely. We went on a busy Saturday evening and everything was prepared perfectly, the wait staff was friendly and attentive, the place is adorable. I have no complaints and would definitely recommend.
We have been going to Dorset inn for years. It is always lovely. The bar excellent. The service perfect.
