King Arthur's for a week, where to eat


Recommended Posts

As a birthday gift, my son bought me a one week long professional baking class at King Arthur's in Vermont. We'll be staying across the border, at A Fireside Inn, a dog friendly motel :) in West Lebanon NH.

I saw an earlier post with some suggestions near King Arthur's, but I'll be there for a full week, and can use a few more suggestions. My wife and I are true foodies, and don't mind paying for a great meal. Can you give us some more hints on the best the area has to offer? Thanks in advance ....

No kidding, Bechtelsville?

I live mid-way between Schwenksville and Limerick, and go to the chiropractor in Bechtelsville frequently.

Tell me, have you found anywhere decent to dine out in Pottstown or surrounding area?

Have a great time at King Arthur, I have a lot of money "invested" there!

Hi Ruth,

IMHO, Pottstown still suffers with a bad economy. I grew up there, remembering the Colonial Room and Milo's, and even the Schuler House. But nothing has replaced them to my knowledge. There's Gracie's out by Pine Forge, but that's about it.

Now, if you travel to Bechtelsville, we have what I consider a GREAT restaurant for the prices nearby, The Savory Grill. If you take 29 through Red Hill and Pennsburg, to Route 100, where 29 ends, and continue straight across 100, and continue several miles, it's on the left hand side, next to a small country auto repair shop. He makes his own bread, his own salad dressings (which change regularly) and is somewhat creative in his main dishes. Well worth the trip. You'll need reservations on the weekends. (610) 845-2010

My sister lives just a bit north of Norwich, VT (and we've taken several classes at the KA Baking & Education Center).

Nearby quality restuarants include:

The Norwich Inn (just up the road from KA in the Norwich town center, next to Dan & Whits, the epitome of the classic New England country store worth checking out on its own). Nice menu and they brew their own beer. See www.norwichinn.com

The fairly new Canoe Club on the main drag in Hanover, NH is pretty nice.

And a real treat is the Stone Soup Restaurant in Strafford, VT

(phone 802-765-4301).
