NEW in March! – The successful Stella’s Restaurant in Hartland 3 Corners has just closed but in its place the Hartland Diner is now open – 7 days a week for lunch and breakfast (served all day!). Don’t despair about Stella’s though as they are preparing to open a restaurant in Windsor at the railroad station (Windsor Station Restaurant and Barroom)serving dinner in the late Summer. They are busy renovating now! 
Opened March 1 in Quechee Singleton’s Market with food items, deli, Vermont products and clothing – check it out on Facebook.
Firestone’s Restaurant in Quechee is now closed but will re-open in the near future as River Stones restaurant.
Another new restaurant is rumored to be coming to Woodstock – The Worthy Kitchen where the Eastender used to be….stay tuned!
Please call in the Spring for restaurant reservations to make sure your pick is open as this is the season a lot of restaurants try to get in a quick vacation. In South Woodstock the Kedron Valley Inn will be closed for all of April. If you are returning to the area from previous visits please note their are new restaurants in the area you may wish to try: Trap Door Bakery and Deli in Quechee, and in Woodstock: Melaza Bistro, Pi Brick Oven Trattoria, and Mon Vert Cafe.
Maple Sugaring has now ended but I recommend a visit to Sugarbush Farm (www.sugarbushfarm.com) where they have a wonderful education display and video on sugaring, a animal petting area and a wonderful cheese and maple syrup tasting room with of course a gift shop full of goodies. 
The Prince & the Pauper Restaurant in Woodstock is having a May special – Mon.-Wed. (and on Mother’s Day) its Prixe Fixe menu (including appetizer,home-made bread, salad, entree and dessert), is only $40!!
 Harpoon Brewery – Windsor – don’t forget live music on Thurs. evenings. And visit Farmstead Cheese (Sustainable Farmer) next door! They are expanding into cheesemaking at this location as well.

Brownsville General Store at the base of Ascutney in addition to it’s daytime deli serves Friday night dinners – eat-in or take-out.
