Converted Catholic Church into NH's Best Irish Pub in the State! Original stain-glass windows, light fixtures and large harp shaped bar. Great family restaurant, something for everyone! Enjoy one of our 26 beers on draft or our specialty drinks. Amazing outdoor seating that takes you on a trip back to the old country. Our function hall holds up to 100 guests for the perfect celebration! Visit us once, and you'll be back again & again!

Great place. Fun atmosphere

Tried this place while in town to visit friends. Very good food! Place was packed but service was excellent. Appetizers are big with decent prices. I had the fish and chips which was fresh and perfectly cooked. The rest of us had burgers and everyone raved!

We had dinner here on Sunday night. 4 ladies out for some fun. The waitress (Nicole) was not great. No sense of humor. We assumed it was the end of her shift. She had no personality remaining. The drinks were basic. The food was just ok, nothing exciting. Burgers were sloppy and the bread was too wet from the juice.... More

Bottom Line: Well worth the trip; unique atmosphere, excellent variety of menu options, reasonably priced, and great service. The Holy Grail is definitely worth the trip and a fun place to go with friends or family. And, if you've never had the fun of dining in a church then this will be a very unique experience. The atmosphere is open... More

These restaurants are in churches that have been remodeled and the atmosphere is great including stained glass windows. The food is mainly Irish/Scottish fare with a wonderful variety to please any taste. It is a bit pricey but not more than other restaurants of the same caliber, and well worth it. Staff was friendly and attentive but not overly so.... More

This is quite a place. Stopped by a week ago for the first time and decided to try the fish & chips. Nice meal with decent sized portions. The atmosphere is really cool as this old church lives on as a restaurant. They also have a nice function room next door and a courtyard eating area. Give it a try!

The mussel's in beer was the best I have ever eaten. The baked seafood was also very good. The prices were OK, not too exorbitant. Very clean and very god wait-staff. Nice experience.

We truly enjoyed sitting upstairs were the choir would sit if this was still a church.the atmosphere makes you feel like you are at church but at the same time enjoying the stained glass windows and the pews for actual seats! The food was served hot and the staff make you feel very comfortable.
