Yum!

Lovely people, great food, great prices! I ordered the corn beef and cabbage sandwich and it fed me for 3 meals. My children got the chicken tenders and said they were 10 x better than friendly's.

a small quaint bar, with great salads, sandwiches and meals. They have a vast amount of draft beers, which come from Ireland and other countries. Never had a bad experience.

Our family really likes this place. Mary Ann has put together a consistently really good restaurant in Bristol. The beer menu, including bartender Chris, is first rate and changes regularly. The food is consistently really good. Our favorite is the chicken medallions are awesome. I even like Mexican Night's burrito - chicken please. I also like whiskey and Kathleen's Cottage... More

The corn beef in the sandwich was thick, juicy, plentiful, and had superb taste. Fabulous bread too.The Dark Pennance draught beer was a new and gratifying experience. (Be it known that this beer is very "hoppy".) The young woman who served us was friendly, helpful, and amusing. In order to make a beer selection she brought us several samples. We... More

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.

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
