A rather battered farm like external appearance (though we did only see it at night) belies a lovely timber clad barn interior on several levels. When we visited it was lit with fairy lights which gave it a magical feel and there was excellent live music. The food was good and plentiful and the staff were brilliant. One to try... More

Enjoyed the intimacy of talking to the live musicians in a cosy environment.The location was very close to our superb bed and breakfast The Carter Noche.

The food was awesome and great value. The bartenders were friendly as were the wait staff. I would definitely eat here again. Worth the trip.

We had dinner at the shovel handle pub whilst staying in the White Mountains, it was recommended by our host but we weren't sure it would suit us. We were wrong, it was a great evening and rounded off our holiday very nicely. The meal was excellent accompanied by some great music and good service at a reasonable price.

The food is outstanding--definitely much better than expected. The atmosphere was amazing--an old barn updated to a restaurant. The live entertainment was very enjoyable and a definite pleasant surprise. Service was great. We'll definitely be back!

I would like to say this is a unique pub in Jackson, NH that we enjoyed very much. The Shovel Handle Pub is in an old barn, with many levels in a nice country setting with nice ambiance. The food was very good, the live music was enjoyable and the service was good. I would say it is not a... More

Great "Night Life" atmosphere. Loved the live entertainment (John ?). Good service and the food was excellent. I had the fresh grilled Salmon and it was the best! I'll be back!

We were recommended this venue as only staying for one night in a nearby hotel. We had a quick look at it during the day and decided it looked fine for an evening meal. We realised this establishment was a grill rather than any kind of fine dining, and that was just what we were after for one night. We... More
