Vermont - Quechee - Suggestions Pretty Please

The wife and I and our two kids (2&4) have a week in Quechee and are ready to eat like champs. We love the simple stuff, side of the road, off the beaten path farm fresh no frills kinda meals. We're not afraid to drive 1/2 or so for something great.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Not familiar with the area but just had lunch at Simon Pearce and it was excellent....tour the factory while waiting for your table and you will make the most of your time

        I can't remember... how far is Queechee from Norwich? There's the King Arthur store there.

          I second Simon Pearce. The food and service is top notch. Try to get a window table near the falls for the best ambiance. It is considered on the expensive side, but we felt it was worth it.

          King Arthur Flour store is a little north of Quechee. Maybe 20 min or so. We also visited the Grafton Village cheese and wine shop. Very nice, great cheeses.

        2. Try Windsor-It has the Harpoon Brewery, Vittles BBQ, An very good Aferican Restaurant, and the Old Train Depot Restaurant will be opening soon too.
          Windsor Farmers Market is Sundays on State St.

          1. The Hartland Diner is also worth checking out.

            1. There are lots of choices - in Woodstock, you might like Ankgor Wat, a small Cambodian place, and it's byob.
              In Lebanon NH (less than 1/2 hour east), there are the usual chain restaurants on rte 12A, but downtown Lebanon has Three Tomatoes Trattoria (excellent mid priced, supplied by local farms), Village Pizza, Peking Tokyo (pretty good Chineese). Just up the road in Hanover is Yama (excellent asian), Molly's (pizza & pub food), Thai Orchid, and the Orient.
              None of these places will stress your budget.
