Everything about dining at The Red Rooster is perfect. The menu creatively uses fresh ingredients and the result is delicious.

Very pleasant setting, with neutral decor. Careful and conscientious service. Perhaps not the most exciting place to eat in Woodstock, but certainly a good option, especially if you are staying at the Woodstock Inn. We enjoyed our dinner very much, especially the chilled pea soup and the white chocolate olive oil cake.

Service was excellent, as was the menu and food. I had the scallop salad, striped bass and bread pudding for dessert. Superb!

We have been going to the Woodstock Inn for over 40 years. Their service was slow and without any communication from the waiter. The food was very good, but it was annoying to wait without any information on the time frame. The breakfast on Sunday was only a buffet, no other offering which was not useful when we just wanted a muffin and coffee. They need to have alternatives for the cost of the accommodations.

The food was lovely but the service rather negligent. Our waiter never checked in with us, let us pour our own wine and left the table uncleared for way too long.

The front staff was nasty and arrogant when we asked them to move our table. They told us all other tables for four were taken. When I objected they put usual one of those tables. We arrived at 6:15 and left at 7:45. There were still empty table for 4s when we left.
The waiter Clive saved the evening

We very much enjoyed the appetizer special which was a sour dough toast with goat cheese, beets, arugula and balsamic dressing. Delicious and so fresh. Our filets were cooked as requested, medium rare. Sides were good too. Server (Vinny) was professional, nice and timed out dinner very well.

Our server Vinny effortlessly guided us through the Red Rooster's inventive menu and helped us enjoy a terrific evening in a stunning setting. We'll be back!

The Woodstock Inn has never had luck with restaurants (been dining there off and on for 40 years), but I had high hopes for the Red Rooster and its beautiful decor. Food and service did not live up to the decor's promise, however.
Menu is very limited (what you see online is exactly what they have to offer) and the "daily special" was lobster bisque which our server told us "is fine for everyone to eat. Has nothing in it. No gluten. No dairy. Everyone can eat it. Nothing in it." Wut?
Ordered veg kabob on couscous -- simple, easy to prepare, quick to cook -- how could they mess it up? The Red Rooster figured it out! Take 3 kinds of veggies that have been in the crisper until they are unrecognizable: 3 mushrooms recycled from a NASA experiment, lots of cut up chunks of old red onion, and a few cubes of green pepper; then skewer them on a little stick, hold them above a lit match and toss on top of couscous. Then have mister surly guy -- whose time you are clearly wasting because his interests lie with cute teenagers at outdoor table -- serve this plate of compost. Maybe there's nothing in any of the restaurants food.
The Rose was tasty.
Even though we've had unremarkable meals at the Inn in the past (none as bad as this one, tho), we decided to try it again because we didn't want to wait in line at Simon Pearce up the road. That was a mistake that I won't make again.

We were unsure about having dinner at our "hotel" instead going outside the property. Good thing we didn't the food was amazing. Super fresh garden vegetables, veal chop to die for and salmon that could not have been any better. Presentation...5 star, taste...5 star, service...5 star !

The server made a mistake in the ingredients of one salad entree, and when it was determined that in fact the item was not entirely gluten free, the manager not only comp'd the replacement entrée, but also gave us a free dessert. We ate on the balcony looking over the Inn courtyard, under the shade of a tall oak tree, on a beautiful summer day, so it was quite lovely. Not crowded for lunch usually, esp. during the weekday, reservation probably wasn't necessary, but it did mean they saved an outdoor table for us, which was nice.

food wasn't up to expectations. Cold pea soup- no flavor
Crispy duck - not crispy and tough
