What a great old building and a great meal. Building is loaded with antiques, stories and probably a ghost or 2. Prices were reasonable.

The staff is always friendly & efficient. The food is excellent but those hushpuppies with that maple butter at every table? Nothing compares! Quaint, original Tavern, with multiple rooms, with the cozy fire blazing in the cooler months. A nice experience.

We were pleasantly surprised that what we thought was a pub, was actually a fine dining restaurant. Our server, Jeremy,... More

Our hosts at our bed-and-breakfast recommended this restaurant...and we were not disappointed! It is definitely on the pricier end for a meal...for two people with two soups, two salads, two entrées, one beer and dessert cost us $100. They do serve you warm cranberry fritters with maple butter that are a definite must-have!!! I could've eaten those all day long... More

We had a nice quiet dinner here. The food was great. We had the crispy duck, onion soup, pot pie and the walnut pie. All were great. If you want a new england food experience in a great quaint atmosphere, than this is the place.

We like to try different restaurants and dishes, particularly while on our annual travel (motorcycle) holiday. This year, we opted for Ye Olde Tavern based on the menu and TA/Yelp reviews.
