Woodstock, New York

The house-brewed beer is great, and the selection ranges from light ales to hearty stouts. I especially recommend the Rhode Island IPA. The food is a bit more than your standard pub fare. After all, this is the Ocean State, so their menu features several seafood dishes: fish n chips, a fried fish sandwich, and sea bass. I highly recommend the sweet potato fries!
Upstairs is your typical pub scene, laid-back and comfortable. Downstairs, though, there is often live music. The music wafts upstairs, making it difficult to have a quiet conversation. If you're looking to hook up with your friends for a fun night out, rather than an intimate evening, it's best to head down the stairs where you can play pool or darts. There is no table service downstairs, but you can still order from the full menu.
I love this place, and try to swing by every time I'm in RI.
