Three Stallion Serves Again 

Side Dishes: Randolph inn's restaurant reopens

Published June 22, 2011 at 6:16 a.m.

It came as a shock last April when Three Stallion Inn abruptly closed its eatery just days before it was to start serving its Vermont Restaurant Week menu. But visitors to Randolph will soon be able to dig in at the inn again.

When the restaurant closed, owner Sam Sammis laid off 20 employees, including manager Jennifer Del Rosario, but for her the story had a happy ending. “I got a call back toward the end of the week after the restaurant closed,” she says. “[Sammis] asked if I could help out for a little bit.” That temporary role turned into a full-time job as the inn’s manager.

Del Rosario was soon faced with guests asking for the return of on-site dining. “Lots of people enjoy coming here, but there’s [also] a demand in the area for a good place to eat,” she says. Rather than reviving the more formal dining room with which the inn was associated, Three Stallion quietly opened Morgan’s Pub & Grill with a limited menu on Fridays and Saturdays.

By the beginning of July, the casual, locally focused restaurant will open officially, serving daily dinner once again with a lengthy bill of fare. Dishes are firmly in the realm of comfort food, with meatloaf, shepherd’s pie, and macaroni and cheese on the menu. Diners can eat on the deck or in the pub, which draws its décor from the Vermont-bred horses for which it’s named. There’s even a Guinness-marinated ribeye named for the breed’s inventor, Justin Morgan.

For those still hoping for a more formal, banquet-style experience at Three Stallion, Del Rosario says the inn is working with local caterers to create formal dinners for on-site weddings and fancy private parties.
