“very poor quality food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We had dinner at this tavern on Saturday December 1 The pizzas we ordered were tasteless, the crust was overcooked. One of us ordered the pecan chicken and found that there was very little chicken in the dish, it was mostly just crust. But what is even worse is that after my complaint the management did not reply and apologize. Needless to say we won't go there again.

“"ambiance cozy food very disappointing"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This historical landmark Inn is truly a NH bed and breakfast.

On the other hand food was very disappointing in taste, and was served not quite cold, put clearly had been siting in the kitchen for some time. The waitress offered a 25% discount which didn't compensate for the meal we looked so forward to eating after a five hour drive or make our table of five feel any better. or having to pay an average of $30. per entree.

I would not recommend this restaurant.

“Great Atmosphere and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We had two dinners in the Tavern and they were both worth coming back for. Love the ambiance of the tavern. A perfect place to spend a stormy evening.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The food in the F FRost Sawyer Tavern is great, certainly by US standard, where food tends to be fat and served in massive portions. Seafood and meat is very well prepared, the atmosphere in the little restaurant is cosy.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Good food, atmosphere and live music on some nights. Loved all the old features in the tavern. The outside entrance could be more welcoming.
