Truant’s Taverne


Located in downtown Woodstock, this tavern is a great spot to enjoy classic American pub food. They have 24 different draft lines of beer from local breweries, seasonal farm to table menu offerings, and regular live music. They also have a porch for outdoor seating, so you can enjoy some pub food and the great weather at the same time. Inside, they have pool tables and shuffleboards to pass the time with friends.

If you’re looking for a delicious meal and beautiful views overlooking the mountains, then La Vista is your place to stop for lunch.
