The Darby is amazing! It is in a picturesque setting, and the views from the rooms can't be beat. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful! It's a great get-away and I would recommend it to all without hesitation.

Wanna go off the beaten path? Here you go. This is about as far from a ChiliMcApoleDonaldbees as you can get. Amazing views, good food, casual, not stuffy. Fine Dining without pretense. A very New Hampshire experience.

My compliments to all the staff at The Darby Field Inn. Tucked away, but not far off beaten path, a hidden jewel, not to be passed by.

Aside from the fact that I used to live nearby ( no bias!) this quaint inn is a special charmer with a unique view of the White Mountains. Delightful staff and fine cuisine. Affordable, too.

As always I was greeted with a smile and excellent service. We enjoyed the gorgeous scenery and a cocktail, outside, before our meal. Our server, Trish, took excellent care of us! The food was amazing! And it was great to chat with the owner, Marc. The added bonus was watching several species of birds feed on their feeder through the... More

Hello Jackie, Thank you for your review of the Darby Field Inn! Our bird feeders are a major attraction at the window tables for breakfast.

We have experienced the Darby Field Inn twice now. The meals are wonderfully prepared and service is excellent. You view of the mountains along with your meal make for a perfect night out. Be sure to order the duck. The Darby Field Inn atmosphere is charming old New Hampshire and a brief romantic getaway.

Our group of 12 found this Inn to be charming. The garden was lovely and had a beautiful view. The dinner was a different matter. If we had not made a reservation I might have given this place a bit more leeway. There was only one other table occupied and one more couple who came in later so the waitress... More
