We went there on a Thursday evening. Lots of luck finding a place to park. There is parking lot across the street which is usually full. On-street parking is capricious. After dropping my wife off with instructions to get a table while I parked, the hunt eventually came to fruition. Their beer, based on the one I tried, was OK, but the beer list on the menu didn't work- there was a MUCH shorter beer list on the table which the waiter told us to try - maybe they had some of them. The food was excellent and well-prepared but it was well over an hour between ordering and receiving our meals. The three wait-staff members we saw spoke English and understood it fairly well.

Woodstock Station uses Ringwood yeast for most, if not all their beers. As a result, all beers have a similar "off" flavor. I recommend a more flavorful beer like an IPA or stout to mask the flavor of the yeast. Speaking of which, the oatmeal stout and IPAs, especially 4000 footer, are good. Recently i had a New England IPA that they should add to their regular lineup. Many of their beers are understandably geared toward the tourist crowd, since that's where the money is. As I write this they offer a blueberry lemon - beer for people who don't like beer. The main bar is busy and touristy with bands on weekend nights. I recommend the brewpub if you simply want to enjoy the beer and maybe watch a game. In the summer there is an outside bar overlooking Main St. that i have not enjoyed but looks like a lot of fun.

I have spent about 15 Ski seasons in the Woodstock area and have frequented the restraint and brew pub. The beer is ok but nothing that Berr Advocate would rate above good. I believe they aim for the general public and keep their brews on the bland side. The food is moderately priced but nothing special. They cater to a captive audience as there are not that many places like this near by. It is a place to hang out after skiing, during session beer and have wings or sandwiches.

Stopped in here for lunch with the family. This is a busy frikin place on a summer weekend afternoon, parking is a little tough. Big space with a bar off to the back left surrounded by tables and a couple of other rooms off to the left. Standard pub food that was quite tasty. 9 or 10 of their brews on tap a few that were brewery only. Somewhat middle of the road beers but I went in expecting that. Somewhat pricey lunch, but its a tourist area and I expected that. I'm not sure I'd go back but it was nice to check it out.

Visted 5/26 and loved the experience. Multiple bars and eating areas, and great selection of beers. The staff is super friendly, and eager to help you with their beers. Speaking of which... the beers were amazing! Highly recommend a brew tour, as they talk about the brewing process and you can sample beers on the tour. The $9 for the tour includes a pint glass as well. All in all a great experience.

Stopped in twice during vacation in NH and VT. Beer was overall of good quality and the food was standard. Atmosphere was really nice...sitting outdoors and having a few beers in the small town was really relaxing

I used to love the Woodstock Inn and would stop there after leaving the woods from backpacking in the White Mountains with my friends. Their food is pretty good,and they had some great beer on tap, with the Oatmeal Stout being my particular favorite! However in the last couple of years they have gone downhill big time!
I do not think they have much (if any) of a tap line cleaning schedule! ALL their beers on tap taste like FUNK every time I go now! I would just think it was a fluke and would order another different beer, and same thing, nasty funky beer. Everyone else I was with noticed it too! And it hasn't just been on one occasion, like I said EVERY time I have gone lately over the past couple of years, can't be a fluke!
They seem very busy all the time, so maybe they don't think they have the time to clean their lines, but if they keep it up I don't see it being busy much longer! Especially since there is another brewery that has opened next door in Lincoln (One Love, although I haven't tasted there yet).
I hope they adopt a scheduled frequent line cleaning policy soon, but I won't know anytime soon since I gave them enough of a chance and have written them off completely.
I won't be going back anytime soon!

I have gone for dinner a few times, good for the area but not a place i would seek out. Lots of outdoor seating, the beers were so so and the food was decent.
