A New Hampshire angle on an Irish Tradition

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... read more

My daughter and I were traveling from Franklin N.H. looking for a great restaurant to have dinner in. We saw a few in Bristol for Seafood, but then spotted a little place called Kathleen's Cottage and it turned out to be an Irish Pub. We had a wonderful dinner there with excellent service and very friendly staff. It was some... More

Ridiculously good food and service! The food was truly special. Very flavorful and filling. Both the chicken medallions and the shepards pie were fantastic.

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.

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

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.
