With an authentic, Old-World ambience, Countryman’s Pleasure has been attracting foodies from all over since before they were called foodies. Now under new ownership, our charming country farmhouse dining rooms have been refreshed while maintaining the cozy, fine dining experience.
Former chef-owner, Hans Entinger, a culinary graduate of Simon Knoll School in Munich, worked with our new chef, Joshua Bartholomew, to ensure that your favorite Bavarian dishes remain authentic and phenomenal. Chef Josh also brings with him fresh ideas for lighter Continental dishes to compliment the traditional Austrian and German selections, and a separate offering of snacks and small plates for comfortable, casual dining in our Tavern.
Chef Josh continues the tradition of exceptional European cuisine with a menu that features locally-sourced Beef Tenderloin Sauerbraten, Pan Roasted Duck Breast, and Chicken Cordon Bleu, as well as uniquely inspired chef specials. So, if you live near or far, and want to share an evening of great food and drink – escape to Countryman’s Pleasure in Rutland…it’s always a pleasure.
