I'm sure on a slow evening there is more care taken with your order and with refilling your water glasses, however on this evening, we arrived, no one in line to be seated, the male host was on a personal phone call and clearly had no intention of seeing us to a seat. The waitresses were short staffed, attending to... More

It had been at least a dozen years since I last visited the area, but one of my favorites, The Homestead, was still around and I was looking forward to dining at a place so full with good memories. Thanksgiving dinner did not disappoint. The dinner was excellent, turkey moist, stuffing was flavorful and the fresh cider on the table... More

There are numerous formal (although comfortable) dining rooms throughout this restaurant - one has a large fireplace that burns wood - others utilize gas. Charming set up! Nice lounge (tavern/pub) with wood stove. Good selection of tap beer. Seafood Chowder was good. Pumpkin Risotto special was not so good - no creamy enough and way too sweet! Our server Jamie...

Full menu, wine list;Wonderful ambiance. Menu consists of palate pleasing culinary delights and great desserts as well. Very 'homey', warm surroundings. An 'eating place' not to be missed in central New Hampshire close to Newfound Lake.

My husband and I have been spending time in Bristol every summer for 15 years. Once each year we go to the Homestead, and it never disappoints. The flavored martinis are great, the homey, New England food is consistently good and the prices are reasonable. They serve a cottage cheese spread with crackers before the meal, and offer a sweet...

We love this place. Every time we come here we're welcomed like old friends. The food is fantastic and they'll change a meal to suit your request. The menu is tavern type to high-end.

We took a small Family Group, including (2) young, well behaved Grandchildren... to "The Homestead" in Bristol, NH, this (2016) Labor Day weekend. I made a phone reservation for eight... requested a private setting... and was treated as an old friend, on the phone. We had a wonderful quiet area... with only a few tables... and every meal drew great... More

The staff was lovely and my party of 6 all received good service and the food was tasty. However, I suspect that they are not especially careful in preparing their gluten free choices. I can't be sure of this but it is my suspicion since I was sick all of the next two days. The place needs a decorating make... More
