We were in New Hampshire to visit a sick friend, and also visited with my sister in Danbury, NH. She suggested we go to Kathleen's in Bristol, NH. I had their butternut squash lasagna, and it was absolutely delicious! My wife had the chicken pot pie, which was wonderful, and my sister had a salad. The service was great, and... More

What a gem! Friendly atmosphere. Delicious fare and great selection of beers, etc. Live Irish music in a quaint cottage setting. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Noisy but fun, great food, good service. Would have like more authentic Irish choices but at least they had some!

I just returned from my third and final trip to Kathleen's Cottage. The first 2 times the food and service were great. This time we got the worst waitress I've seen in years, screwed up orders, overcooked meat, and the most tasteless excuse for beef I've ever seen masquerading as Angus. No bread, silverware or napkins (finally got the silverware... More

We found this pub quite awhile ago when searching for a St. Patrick's dinner location. What a wonderful surprise! The food, the music, the lager on tap and the wait staff and owner are all delightful. We frequently enjoy eating here and listening to a good Session on a Friday evening. Friendly, warm and wonderful atmosphere!

Kathleen's Cottage has pulled off something that restaurants have tried and failed for decades to do in the Bristol, NH area: Survived as a year-round entity in a summer vacation spot. Kathleen's is a great local joint. It's small and friendly. The food is several notches above the usual pub fare. Perhaps the greatest strength of Kathleen's is this: The... More

This is a gem in a sleepy little NH town. We eat here at least once whenever we visit Bristol. The food is always delicious and the service is welcoming and speedy. We have never been disappointed eating here and would recommend to anyone. Generous portions & great Guiness on tap!

Our friends brought us here for lunch and were had a great meal. It was a Saturday around 2pm and it was very quiet. We were seated right away and our waitress was excellent. We shared the onion rings as an appetizer and they were among the best I had ever had. The dipping sauce that came with them was... More

We'd heard a lot about Kathleen's Cottage long before we finally got around to trying it. It's great! The food is excellent and the atmosphere is charming. On Friday nights they have live Irish music and sometimes even some Irish Step Dancing. The place is rather small and there isn't much of a waiting area, so if you arrive at... More

We just stopped for a quick lunch, but if we'd been in the area longer we probably would have returned for dinner. Well-behaved dogs are allowed in the outdoor seating area!
