We visited again in the "off season", i. e, secnd week in April. At that time the skiers are gone, and not much is going on, so getting a reservation was not a problem. However, once the golf and summer season rolls around, one can expect that reservations here will be most appropriate. The food continues to be suculent and... More

Thank you @KVM101. The slower months are a great time to regroup and meet up with old friends. And at this time of year, the Back Porch is offering some lovely sunsets views. In addition, thank you for your review of the salmon, which I've gladly passed along to the chef. We appreciate your mentioning Jonathan's Pub. Like you said,... More

For a really special experience the pub downstairs is a unique experience in this classy old style inn. They always have a special drink of the night that is sure to tempt your palette.

Thank you for your comments, @BillREnconway. You were correct in thinking that the same menu is offered in the pub and the restaurant. Also, we like to think that our Specialty Cocktails provide something a little different and always delicious. More

Far better than hoped for menu, gracious and warm service. A real gem. Don't bother going anywhere else.

We ate at the Oxford House Inn (in the pub) on a Saturday night. The space is really lovely, and we were able to sit on couches and have a cocktail while we waited for our table to be ready. (The maple Manhattans are delicious!) We order the onion ring tower for apps (very good) and duck (just okay) and... More

We so enjoy our guests and appreciate your feedback. Many guests love the pub with its special charm...granite stone walls, lounge, the long cushioned bench seats, intimate tables hear the fire, the display by local artists, etc. I'm sure you can imagine that due to it's popularity, it can sometimes be difficult to get a seat without reservations.

Creative but not crazy. Satisfying but not overstuffed. A comfortable yet classy dining room with nice views in the daylight. In a tourist region loaded with taverns and apre-ski places, Oxford House Inn is steps above the bunch in quality of food, and value. It is 15 minutes from the bustle of North Conway, across the border in Maine. This... More

You seem to have perfectly described the cuisine (according to other TripAdvisor guests): "Creative by not crazy; satisfying but not overstuffed; comfortable yet classy". We appreciate our apres-ski regulars as well as our fine diners. And we're thankful that you have made us a "return to" destination. More

my wife and I went here as part of a package from the Cabernet Inn in North Conway. The Inn keepers recommended it and I now understand why. We both chose the tenderloin which was great. From the salads to the Creme Brûlée it was well worth the trip.

We're so pleased you chose to dine with us while staying at the Cabernet Inn. The drive from North Conway is approximately 20 minutes, but as you said, we do try to make the meal worth the drive. More
