Stopping there after a day of all work and no lunch, I wanted to have a quick dinner. The Tavern has a great bar to eat at, with many choices of bears, wine and mixes drinks. Have to say it was one of the best burgers I've had in a long time. Much better then the local chains down the... More

Stopped in here and was expecting just a bar but the restaurant was very good. The menu had so many good options it was hard to decide. Once the food arrived, everyone was very happy. Our server was very kind and helpful.

We met friends here and had a pleasant and delicious meal. The setting itself was filled with lots of light since there are plenty of windows and skylights. We had a round table (which can seat 6-8) which made conversation much easier. The dining room was very clean and well-kept. They have a full bar plus seating as well in... More

Gift certificates for local restaurants are always fun to get as Christmas gifts. This year we received two of them for the Tavern. I hadn't eaten at the Tavern for years so was looking forward to see what I was missing all this time. My wife and I decided to use one of the certificates for lunch the other day.... More

The atmosphere is perfect for a quiet evening. The wait staff is friendly and very helpful. The fire place made it ever so warm and inviting.

Good place. I had the duck tacos and they were excellent! Not busy at all. Maybe it is because is election night and people are depressed and not feeling good about the choices we have. I also had the Long Trail Ale...good beer.

I had booked the Colonial Motel and Spa for a spur of the moment Fall foliage trip and this restaurant is attached. Arriving on a very rainy Friday after 6 hours of driving I checked in and wanted to dine on-site. This pub atmosphere restaurant had its large hearth fireplace on, and so, I had a nice drink and dined... More

Very friendly staff good range of food and beer, good quality - went twice. Small outside area but near to road so not really an option. Siting inside was very pleasant, nice surroundings in good order.

Ate here twice on recent stay at adjacent Colonial Motel & Spa (highly recommended for good value). Restaurant not so much. Meat loaf sandwich was a little odd tasting. Second try was the shrimp scampi which they bill as 'Amazing.' Well, I was amazed. Four(?) fine large shrimp not fried in butter and wafting garlic aroma, but rather served in... More

The Tavern at the Colonial Motel allows for a fun night out without the inconvenience of driving to get there. After a long day in meetings, out on the town or hitting the slopes visit the Tavern to refuel. If you're craving sweet desserts or just want to unwind at the bar, The Tavern is the perfect place to grab a bite and a drink. We have one of the best draft beer and wine selections in the area. Our exiting new menu is reasonable priced. Every dish is a winner! In the wintertime get cozy in the Tavern with two brick fireplaces blazing to warm you up after a day on the slopes. Reserve your room online and plan on dining at the Tavern in Brattleboro, Vermont soon.
