**Note: The Stagecoach Tavern is closed for rest and rejuvenation from October 25th until November 24th. Join us for Thanksgiving Dinner! See you again soon :-)

The Stagecoach Tavern at Race Brook Lodge dates back to the mid 18th 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 over 200 years.

The ambiance of our historic tavern is truly unmatched, with features 6 private dining spaces, some with their own fireplaces, as well as additional fireside tables on the rustic Pine Grove Porch, and ample outdoor dining options in the Backyard or on the Front Patio.

Our kitchen team draws inspiration from their diverse backgrounds, creating dishes influenced by French, New American, Brazilian and Italian cuisines.

    Excellent food from the new chef. Love the way they've creatively set up private "rooms" for dining, well worth the upcharge.

    This restaurant is a fun surprise. Everything was excellent. It’s getting harder to find white tablecloth restaurants that don’t stick very closely to the script. The atmosphere was tasteful and fun at the same time. Every bite was delicious. Our server was perfect.

    It was a Valentines Day Sunday Brunch & all I asked for was “near the fireplace” - beautiful private room with comfy chairs fireside and a lovely little table near by. Very candlelight and private. Brunch was very good, service lovely and the coffee was a little too “dark roast” for me. Otherwise - go there.

    With many restaurants closed on Thanksgiving Day and us staying at an inn, we scrambled to find someplace interesting and special for our holiday dinner. The Stagecoach Tavern was definitely that. What a memorable experience! Ambiance and history abound. Attentive service and excellent dinner.

    Service was excellent. Amazing private dining experience and beautiful, cozy ambiance. In terms of the food, we were most impressed with the eggs benedict and rum pumpkin soup for brunch and the seafood paella for dinner. Cocktails were disappointing but the wine list was great.
