Great Food and Beer

Decently curated beer selection for Bethel. Always a pleasant surprise to see Arrogant B*stard on tap. The Drayman steak has been cooked perfectly every time I order it and it's really good. Also have had the fish and chips and all the curry options. I highly recommend the Tikka Masala with lamb... read more

We come up here a lot and have been meaning to try this place. It was nice but not the best meal,I've had in this area. The chicken pasty was heavy on the peas and not so much the chicken and potatoes. The fish and chips were good.

Well, what can I say? We decided to stay here on our trip around New England as we were looking for smaller inns with character and good food. We were not disappointed! Excellent food - one of the best sausages and mash I've had - superb company and just a very good night!

Went to the Drayman while on a ski trip to Sunday River. I was with a group of nine friends which led to a variety of foods and drinks being ordered. Those who ordered a variety of craft beers had only good things to say. I had a hard cider which was excellent. Those in my group who enjoyed various... More

Went few years ago and found this a great place for a drink - we called again in Sept 2014. Place had changed, not for the better Barman (owner ?) couldn't pull a pint - service was very poor & expensive. My wife and I will not be going back again.

Good beers, cozy little place. We also had wings. Small little bar area, but also couch are in front of the fireplace, and dining room area too.

We stumbled across this pub, and are so glad we stopped in! We sat at the bar where my husband enjoyed sampling different beers with excellent advice from the bartender, who stopped him from ordering something he didn't like by offering a taste first, and who gave me a great tip on a new hard cider. My husband ordered the... More

We love coming here. Drayman is a fun English style pub with a lot of British and Indian dishes. The fried pickles are great, and their chicken naan sandwich is too. Lots of good beers on tap. Fred is the owner and a great guy. You won't leave hungry.
