I went for dinner with my wife and the food was very good. I had a "Wellie" that was delicious and my wife had an Indian Curry dish. Both of us were very happy with our food. Be wary, the place is small and the tables are packed in. If the folks at the next table are talking loudly and... More

My family owns a condo at Sunday River which we frequent often. Any weekend we are there we always eat one night at the Drayman. The food and drinks are great and they are so good to my 10 year old son. We take friends here and they feel the same. Quaint atmosphere and tasty beer too!

We visited two nights in a row during the busy school vacation week. The second night the restaurant was full but they found a place for our family of... More

My wife and I went to experience their renowned fish and hand cut chips and other English fare.... More
