Newmarket has been enjoying a renaissance over the few years we bought a condo by the Lamprey River. We have been eating at the River Tavern about once every couple of weeks since then. While other restaurants on Main Street have become more "chic", the River Tavern has gone a bit down hill over that time. The famous Saturday night... More

My friends and I made the worst mistake of trying the Lamprey River Tavern for breakfast because the Big Bean had a lot of people waiting. Readers beware: wait as long as it takes!! The breakfast we ordered took about 45 minutes to arrive and when it arrived, one meal at a time, the meals were varied between warm and... More

A good spot for lunch, with a typical pub style menu. Breakfast was a disappointment - overcooked poached eggs, soso coffee.

We stopped in here while waiting for our friend to get off work. We were in town for a mini vacation. Place was nice , drinks were good and notexpensive. We came back later that night for supper. Food was good and prices were decent. If your looking for a nice bar stop in. Felt like home.

We went with another couple on pasta night. I had the chicken marsala. The pasta was way overcooked such that it all stuck together. I later found out that my friend went by the kitchen and said it was dirty with spaghetti on the floor. I regret that I didn't send back my meal.

Maple Bacon - BLT! Plus sweet potatoe fries for $8! And not even the special! PBR at a great price Mai Tai Monday $3 - not for me, but $1 off drinks for happy hour. Great juke box, high end technology for a regular Southern NH pub. Another big window on the Main Street place that was a great place... More

Not been to the Lamprey nearly enough I'm afraid - but the few times I've gone, I really enjoyed the easy-going vibe! They had live music which was good but quiet enough that you could still talk. Only had the bar food so far, so don't know about the dining quality. But the apps we had were fine. I get... More

We were a party of four adults and one ten year old who ate there on a Monday evening. Although only one other group was dining, we waited a very long time to be served a very ordinary meal at prices not justified by the quality of the food. As we visit this area often, I was extremely disappointed. We... More
