Dorsey Inn only get better over the years. Lovely inn. Food wonderful.
it was open on a Monday night! a rarity for the area. lovely setting, average food. nice people
The Inn the restaurant and tavern are beautiful. The menu selections and specials were great. The food and service was spectacular. We have dined at The Dorset Inn many times over the years and have always enjoyed our experience!
Wonderful restaurant with cozy rooms and fine dining service. Our waitress was personable and friendly. I had a delicious medallions of duck. The pasta was al dente. We will definitely return.
With the pandemic, this was some of the best service and food we have enjoyed in the last 18 months. We ordered the filet and the cod entrees and were not disappointed. Pleasant room. Upscale prices. Minor complaint was that the dessert descriptions were incomplete.
Very nice setting, waitress knowledgeable and very pleasant, food excellent.
Good to very good…service very slow
We’ve dined here many times over the last 30 years and never had a bad meal. Service has always been good and one could not ask for cozier ambiance than the tavern. On a winter’s night fireplaces are lit in the dining room and the tavern. It is obvious that great care is taken with the menu and preparation of the fare.
Dinner at the Dorset inn Tavern is always a great time! Food was good and the service was amazing!
The food was divine. We enjoyed eating on the patio. Our server had perfect timing.
As usual the Dorset Inn did not disappoint. Beginning with our before dinner drink in the Tavern and fun banter with the bartender to our pleasant waitress and of course the meal.
The Salmon and Scallops were done to perfection and the side of mashed potatoes and green beans were delicious with aioli.
Can't wait to go back.
Thank you for continuing to surpass our expectations.
Exactly the type of place we wanted for a romantic, intimate dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Food was delicious and had an outstanding wine list.
Excellent traditional New England restaurant, sometimes lively bar
Beautiful night at an outdoor table. Waiter was attentive and highly professional. As always, the food was superb.
Very nice place to have dinner. Food is chef inspired. Noise level can be a little much due to the hardwood floors.
Tranquil outdoor seating on the lawn, extensive menu, great wine. A pampered experience.
Always a lovely place for a romantic dinner. Great food, ambience and service.
Thank you for a wonderful review!
Wonderfully quaint ambiance with excellent food and friendly attentive service-
Will for sure come back on next visit to Vermont-
So glad to hear you enjoyed your meal with us! We look forward to see you again soon! Brianna Restaurant Manager The Dorset Inn
The meal was delicious- best I've ever had in this area, and I've been here 4 times. The very salad was amazing and the chicken was in the top 10 of all time. Highly recommend!
Our garlic roasted chicken is one of our best sellers! We hope to see you again soon!
The Dorset Inn continues to amaze with great food and ambiance. A special shout out to Tom and Kim who go above and beyond to provide outstanding customer service.
Thank you for your kind words! Tom and Kim are truly assets to the inn and we love to see that it’s recognized.
The menu was limited, food was fair and the service was slow. Drinks were overpriced and the two and a half hours it took to eat a full dinner was not worth it. Ordered the cheesecake to go and you needed a magnifying glass to find it for $12. Don't know if it was just a bad night for the Dorset Inn but we will not recommend it in or go back.
We appreciate the feedback and I apologize that this was your experience. I have responded privately with our email address so that we can invite you back for a true Dorset Inn experience! Brianna Restaurant Manager The Dorset Inn
Wonderful as always! Great food, excellent service
This is a traditional New England Inn and dining room with an updated and beautifully prepared and served traditional menu.
Over many years, we've made numerous visits and looking around the dining room, it's clear that many patrons are similarly situated.
Well worth a visit.
Very nice old inn in the center of town, near the green. Nice bar, drinks only at the bar.
Tavern is an option for dinning, same menu. We ate in the dining room, the food
was really exceptional. Great wait staff, would definitely go back again.
Thanks for a great review!
Food was very good, service was also very good. Historic building, so interesting environment. We enjoyed our food and the experience.
Thank you for a wonderful review. The inn was build in 1796 and definitely has lots of character! We hope to see you again soon!
Very good spot if you’re in Southern Vermont. Great food and service. Great atmosphere. Have some outside dining if you need it. One of the better places in the area.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and evening at the Dorset tnn
Awesome experience. Enjoyed the meal very much and would definitely go back again.
Service is excellent
Quality of food is very good
We have never had a bad meal at the Dorset Inn - our recent visit was no exception!! Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere, staff all friendly. Love this place!
The food, the bread, every veg.,was well prepared and delicious.The staff was very good. The best meal we have had in some time.
We enjoyed the excellent food, friendly service, and classic ambiance. Dorset is a historic Vermont town and the Dorset Inn reflects the town perfectly.
Had a great dinner here while staying at the inn. Hannah couldn't have been more lovely and helpful. It added to the delicious food and cozy and historic atmosphere.
Definitely the best high-end restaurant in the area—Dorset and Manchester.
We’ve eaten their 4 times this year. They consistently do an amazing job—even when they’re super busy.
The staff is so professional, attentive and nice. The food is delicious and fresh. The ambience is comfortable. And the prices are reasonable for the experience—and competitive versus comparable restaurants in the area.
This place is a gem.
Only issue they ran out of Rose wine
Great food, service, and wine list. We went 2 nights in a row!
Superb food in a historic charming setting with very attentive staff and a fine wine and cocktail menu. A+++++
Once again another delightful dinner at the Inn.
We ate outside which was blissfully quiet. Wonderful venue and great food. Staff was kind but missed a few things — like responding to questions and filling water glasses
They only had one cook in the kitchen so we had to leave prior to our meals being ready. We waiting an hour and a half and only had our salads. The view was spectacular but unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy our food.
