Visited here recently. Food was above average... service was good... beers were average, except for the the Oatmeal Stout, which was outstanding. Quite a way off of the main travel routes, unless you are sightseeing in Northern NH, but well worth the day trip.

Great place to spend a weekend in NH. Good pub food and also another roon for ’fine dinning’. Good selection of their own brews, live music, best of all your room is a walk away

Really solid brewpub for being in the middle of nowhere. Nice stop in the middle from Portland to Greensboro, kinda of. Try the Autumn brew, great spicy pumpkin beer.

Small pub in a fairly tourist rich area of NH. Only had one beer there, the Vanilla Bean Stout on cask. The beer was a fine example of the style and was served at the correct temp. Unfortunately it was served by a less than enthusiastic bartender, not unfriendly, just seems like he did not want to be there. I had a burger, and for once I ordered it very rare and it came out nicely seared with a cold centre, this earns them a 10 for food. I like a bar that will serve you a raw hamburger without cramming all that FDA crap down your throat. Not sure I would make a special trip to go there, but it did provide a good beer and a tasty lunch.

Nice little Inn/Brewpub in North Woodstock NH. Had lunch here while in Lincoln for the New England Brewfest. Ambiance was just ok. It’s an old building with a lot of wood and wallpaper with huge flowers on it. Looks like an old lady lives there, which maybe one did at one time. Tables are kind of crowded together. Service was average to good. Our waitress was attentive and the food did not take long. Speaking of food, there was an excellent selection and it was very good. The beers were ok. Nothing special. It was nice to have a couple that were not bottled.

A very convenient Sunday lunch stop on our way across the White Mountains area travelling from Vermont to Maine . Extensive food menu, although nothing too innovative and what we had was decent. Not too overpriced for a Winter sports area. Beers were mediocre but serviceable. Service was efficient but perfunctory. Nice old building with various areas. The bar area might have been more convivial than the dining area where we sat but there were no seats free, which suggests this place might be a bit packed on Friday & Saturday or at the height of the season. Worth a stop if in the area but probably not a special journey. One downside is that the sampler gives you only 5 beers (your choice) when they usually have 7 on tap.

An inn, a brewpub, a jack of all trades/ There are 3 places at the inn that serve their beer. The restaurant which is high end, the bar, that has some nice brewpub specials for food, and the brewpub, which is a small area that showcases the brewery, and has their cask offerings. A fun place to visit.

This was a pleasant stop in our travels. Easy going town, laid back with shops and sites. Our service was okay, couple of the beers we wanted to try (seasonal) were already off the menu. Beer was average with the Red Rack as a favored choice. Brought a growler along but they wouldn’t fill it due to some BS state law?! Place was comfortable with seating inside and out. Food good and prices reasonable, varied food selection.

This quaint old New England inn has a brewpub in the back with different rooms. Their beers are quite conservative (amber ale, pale ale, golden ale, brown ale, etc.) and just okay. The food we had was decent, like the beer, but apart from the fact this is easy to get to from I-93, I don’t see why a travelling beer lover would make a detour to get their brews (which they bottle anyway).

Here is a place that I really like to go. Part of the New Hampshire-based Common Man chain, which is highly regarded and probably the most respected restaurant operation in the state. The owner is very active in community affairs and frequently helps those less fortunate. In recent years a few of their brews have been bottled and sold around New England and most of those brews are above average. But they are not as good as having them fresh out of the barrel at the brewery. A great rustic atmosphere. After dinner you can buy samples of Americana like old magazines and posters. Great, friendly service and a creative menu selection. Super appetizers! The price is a but higher than most pubs but don’t forget that you are visiting a place in the heart of New Hampshire’s North Country tourism hot spot. You will be able to sample a few brews that are only available in the pub. Last time I was there they offered a variety pack of beer samplers for a reasonable price. This is a good place to visit if you are in the area. It’s a bit tricky to find as it is in downtown North Woodstock and doesn’t really jump out at you but I think you will be pleased with your experience. Growlers available on the premises for $10.00 each.
