Our philosophy is simple. 'Fresh food tastes better'.
We are conveniently located " on the common " in the historic and picturesque town of Chester, Vermont. Opened in August 2014, The Free Range provides an interesting and diverse offering of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches and dinner entrees. Each menu item is carefully prepared daily in our state-of-the-art kitchen; from our grass fed burgers, to our slow braised short ribs and our hand cut fries. We do our best to use locally sourced products starting with our fresh breads, meats and produce to other local favorites like maple syrup.
Our culinary trained Executive Chef and partner Michael Kennedy brings his fine dining expertise to our comfortable and relaxed restaurant. Chef Michael adds a creative twist to our simple comfort fare from his unique Crispy Calamari Flatbread to his Hot Apple Fritters with caramel cream and maple sugar dust. He creates a well rounded dining experience for everyone to enjoy.
The Free Range has an extensive and diverse wine list offering 20 different wines by the glass, Vermont craft beers on tap, hand crafted specialty cocktails, and Espresso, Cappuccino and Latte drinks.
Come in and experience the warm Vermont atmosphere, friendly service and fresh food in our charming 1895 Victorian home.
