The Pitcher Inn is home to a Vermont style Relais & Châteaux dining experience and an à la carte farm-to-table dinner menu created by Chef Adam Longworth. With thoughtfully sourced ingredients, an appetite for detail, and service that is as knowledgeable as it is warm, our restaurant is a romantic option for your trip to the Warren, Waitsfield, or the Mad River Valley at large. The freshest seafood, locally sourced meats, Vermont artisan cheeses, locally gathered wild mushrooms and native fruits are artfully combined with fresh and seasonal vegetables and herbs from nearby farms. Paired with an old or new world wine, a meticulously mixed cocktail, or a local craft beer, a meal at The Pitcher Inn is exceptional.

We absolutely loved our stay. The food was divine and the service was outstanding. Best overnight we've ever had. We also had massages which were fabulous. The only reason I gave volume a less than perfect rating was because there were two families staying together with 5 boys who were too loud during breakfast. I'd like to go again in the summer so I can enjoy the beautiful deck and private balcony.

The best fine dining experience you can have in Mad River Valley. Beautiful dining rooms, perfect ambiance and impeccable service, Especially if you have Will as your server. Although, the servers are all great there.

It was okay.. actually we were somewhat disappointed. We went to The Common Man last year and loved it- couldn’t say the same about the food and drinks this time around. What we liked: the octopus and the cappellacci pasta ragu dish. The halibut was in a swimming pool of brothy sauce, the breading was mushy and fish itself undercooked. The steak and the mushroom bucatini dishes were okay. Cocktails and wines by the glass were underwhelming.. much different overall than the experience we had there last year. And the bill for 2 adults, 2 kids under 11 was close to $400. We wish them the best, but probably won’t be returning.

This was our first time here. This was the best food we’ve had in years almost anywhere. The Tom Cat Negroni was concocted perfectly, draft Sip of Sunshjne delightful. My husband had the baked oysters and I had a simple salad that was perfectly dressed. He had the lobster spaghetti and I had the roasted chicken and both were impeccably prepared, everything cooked perfectly and Exceptionally seasoned. I cook quite a bit and actually roasting a chicken is an art especially to get the skin perfectly crisp and the meat cooked through but remaining moist and not over done. We will definitely be back.

I would rate this over Simon Pearce in all categories.

Every year our family has a special holiday dinner at a fancy restaurant. This year, The Pitcher Inn was our choice. Initially we were seated next to a table that included one loud patron who voiced his obscenity strewn opinions re “obnoxious Massachusetts people who have twin Suburbans.” Being from Massachusetts but neither obnoxious nor owners of any Suburbans, we quietly asked to be reseated. Our waiter was more than willing to make this happen. The rest of evening was wonderful in every way: the setting, the food, the service and of course the cocktails. Thank you to everyone at The Pitcher Inn for a memorable experience.

This beautifully restored Inn is elegant and
polished in every way. The food is superb and the service understated and impeccably delivered. The Pitcher Inn has recently posted offerings on Front Porch Forum inviting locals to enjoy Sunday Bruch and a special Wednesday Burger night...both reasonably priced. Having enjoyed very special occasions there in the past, we were delighted to return casually, just for the fun of it...and of course, the atmosphere.

We have been vacationing in this part of Vermont for 25 years, and had never gone to the Pitcher's Inn. We had heard good things about it over the years and decided to give it a try as we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We were not disappointed! the food was good and the service and ambiance were really nice. We will go back and will recommend it to others.

Weekend brunch is new and, by chance, I learned it is available almost all summer long. What a treat. Great choices, delicious food, good coffee and one fabulous Bloody Mary, I am told. Tara and the rest of the staff took good care of us and we cannot wait to go back.
