Great little beer bar nestled off in Glastonbury. This place always has really great craft beers available that are constantly rotating. The food menu is straight forward, and delicious. I would recommend this spot for a pint or for a meal. Staff is really niace and very passionate about serving great craft beer. Check it out!

My friend has hearing issues, and the staff was good about letting her pick the best place for her to sit. Service was from the barmaid, so it was a bit slow to refill water, but food came out nice and hot. The food was great! The stuffed quahog was perfect- huge chunks of clam, and a perfect bread crumb!... More

Since there are so few restaurants out of the center of town, this gets a lot of business due to location for locals. It's fine for a drink at the bar. The food is okay. Not a lot of choice or menu updates.

Well placed pub next to a gourmet grocery store with a menu that sings to a hungry stomach... Nice selection of beer. Service slow. Reuben was served on thick slices of bread that was stale to start and prevented one from actually being able to bite thru the sandwich. The corned beef was definitely home made but it was VERY...

Eating in here seems fun. Take out service was awful I shouldn't have to wait 5 min to be noticed at the end of the bar. Your having me stand for take out next to a couple eating who clearly wasn't happy I was on top of them. Nor was I comfortable being in their space. The waitresses also run... More

Birch Hill Tavern is nearly in my back yard. I was burned out from the previous restaurant, The Buckingham and was not motivated to try Birch Hill Tavern until recently. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and atmosphere. After having a great lunch of swordfish tacos and a wonderful dessert, I return the next day for lunch... More

My wife and I decided to go this location last night for dinner and each ordered the Turkey Burger which was excellent. In addition we ordered a salad ($8.00) and asked for some balsamic and ranch dressing on the side. While both the dressings were good we were charged an extra .50 for the one dressing. I wonder if I... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the beer menu variety and quality. The food menu is rather limited in comparison but my fish was good and my husband enjoyed the ribs.

We went here for dinner last night. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We ordered beers and from a menu with a lot of good choices. We were surprised when she brought us bottles, we just assumed everything was draft. We asked about it and she said that they didn't have a printed draft list right then and she wasn't... More
