Three Clock Inn – Wonderful Culinary Experience

by Craig Altschul

Middletown Road in South Londonderry is one of those beautiful country roads that you may never think to go down. Even if you have taken that road you may not have noticed the charming, 200 year old farm house behind a white picket fence just a few hundred feet from Route 100. You want to change that. Inside that picket fence, inside that charming old farm house a wonderful culinary experience awaits you.

Three Clock Inn is no longer an inn. When Serge and Marcie Roche bought and renovated the property in 1996 they focused strictly on the restaurant. Combine the tranquil decor: white table linens, hardwood floors, uncluttered with a knowledgeable courteous staff and the stage is set for a truly relaxing evening. Then there’s the food. The traditional French cuisine expertly prepared emphasizing fresh, and when possible, locally grown products reflects both Serge’s French upbringing and a career path which began in Evian, France, and includes stops in Geneva, Switzerland, New York City, and fortunately for us, Southern Vermont.

Dinner always begins with warm crusty bread prepared and served in a terra cotta pot. Oysters or Duck? Double Pork Chops, rack of lamb or Dover Sole? Creme Brulee or Profiteroles? Can’t decide? Ask the wait staff for recommendations and let them know if you have any dietary restrictions. They want you to have a great meal.

Make sure you go hungry and allow yourself to try some of everything. The menu changes seasonally and there are creative daily specials. Try a selection from the world class wine cellar. Dinner at the Three Clock. Your body and psyche will be rewarded.

Dinner is served from 5:00p.m. Tuesday thru Sunday. Call 802.824.6327 for reservations or to check times during holiday periods.
