The Stagecoach Tavern at Race Brook Lodge dates back to the early 17th century. Our candlelit Tavern boasts hand-hewn beams and wide-plank floors and it has been a warm and convivial gathering spot for friends, families, and lovers for almost 200 years.

Great dinner! A bit pricey, but I understand it was due to rising cost to be able to pay their staff a living wage, rather to just depend on tips. We tipped anyways. Happy to help. Always a great experience!

Place is fantastic all around. If you’re in town you should go. They don’t make them like this anymore. Like an old vintage you could feel the age. Food was fabulous! Layout and decor amazing! Our five year old was with us. She is very well behaved but it’s very subdued. Great for groups and couples.

First time here for Valintines Day. Stuck with limited special menu for outrageous price. Food and cocktails were excellent, staff worked hard to make things nice. Don't like using Open Table, don't like being asked to view menu and place food order on line while I'm setting in the restaurant, here or anywhere. Staff can easily maintain a safe distance here while talking to guests and taking orders. Look forward to going back and ordering from their normal menu and please ditch the online crap as soon as possible.

Excellent, excellent. Truly enjoyed our meal Friday night - the ambiance was cozy (fires lit), the music was relaxing (Dylan & more), the the staff extremely friendly and the food - the food. I rarely leave reviews but had to for this place and this kitchen. The Carrot Cacio de Pepe and the Winter Bean Salad were really exceptional, as were the recommended wine pairings. Enjoyed our meal so much we came back Saturday night and savored it just as much. Highly recommend.

Good locally sourced food. Very friendly staff- very prompt. All interactions were done via internal chat. Staff fully covid compliant. Our dining space was inhabited by staff only when called. Chef delivered the food directly to us. We had an individual room (most were individual). There was a fireplace and a well-stocked bar. Drinks were delicious. Thanks for making our one and only dining experience safe and delicious!!!

We understand it's hard for all restaurants during Covid, so I write this understanding that. The Stagecoach has been our favorite place for years. This time, however, the food was very mediocre and the glass of wine I ordered was only about 1/4 full, so a clear difference from past experiences there.

This is my favorite restaurant in the area. I've come here for my birthday (among many special occasions) for years. The ambience is simply unmatched. An exceptional dining experience with friendly and welcoming service. This restaurant is not to be missed.

Everything was perfect. The fire was waiting for us in a private nook way earlier than our scheduled time. We had the room all night with candles, fire, historic charm. The timing was perfect on the 6 course meal and items and drink pairings on the winter tasting menu were also diverse yet familiar. Staff friendly and accommodating. Elegant and historic without being pretentious or outdated. Highly recommend.

Went for my birthday with 2 friends. In November it was too cold for most outdoor dining, but the fire pit abs heaters here made it cozy. The food was delicious and they are really on top of safety with ordering through online chat. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Even the indoor space was completely divided into private rooms. Beautiful setting.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience to celebrate my Husbands 50th birthday. Although it was 54 degrees and we were bundled up since we prefer outdoor dining thanks to COVID, we sat near a fire pit and were offered a patio heater as well! Service was amazing, including bday singing and food was delicious! Highly recommend!

Wow! We had an absolutely delicious meal. And what a well thought out plan to keep everyone safe and warm. Even though it was a pretty cold night, Staff kept adding wood to the firepit and snugged the heatlamps right up to the tables. And the strung lights made for a special ambience in these tough times. Thank you, Stagecoach Tavern!

We made a reservation to sit outside. It was a chilly night and our table was out on the lawn. We were unfamiliar with the online service model and also had difficulty with the wifi at our table. We had to move away from our table toward the building to connect. There was a fire around two other tables but the outdoor stove near our table was out until we asked that it be lighted.

The inside seemed very inviting and we might try indoors when we venture there again.

It was one of the worst restaurant experiences. I was there to have my birthday dinner and specified it was a birthday dinner on my OpenTable reservation.

I've ordered a glass of Rose. The color was as red as it was a glass of red and tasted like vinegar. And I was told it was supposed to be. I got a glass of Chardonnay, which was good.

I also ordered the MEDIUM Skirt Steak Frits. It came WELL DONE. And the host told me she would get me a new one. When the server brought food, she dropped a small bowl of caramelized onion on the ground, and she said she would bring it again, which she had never done. I waited 30 minutes and canceled my steak and peach cobbler on the order text. Then the host came and told me she forgot to place the order. The ordered were done by TEXT as an un-contact service.

She also said she would comp us the peach cobbler since it was already made. We had it to go. When I opened the container, I was in shock. It looked like someone's leftover dessert.

Atmosphere was great - quiet, antique setting. Food was very good - tasty and well-proportioned.

Awkward at the signing ceremony (because of COVID, I'm sure), when asked "How much would you like to tip?" They tell you that the wait staff makes a living wage, so tipping is not necessary, but appreciated. They don't tell you, until after you have eaten, that they have raised the prices to do this. That could be handled better.
