We were just passing through and asked a local to recommend some place for lunch. We never would have found Kathleen's or tried it without the recommendation. Glad we did. The food was excellent. The service was very good, making us feel welcome amongst the regulars. The menu is vast so make... read more

Irish style pub, comfortable, clean and welcoming. Local brew on tap as well as your more well known Irish beers. Pub fare, and some truly excellent lunch and dinner selections. Just a word to the wise--when you go, make sure you are hungry! Generous portions.

Been coming here for a while. This is by far the Best Irish Pub around, hands down. Whether it's the food, beverage or entertainment you won't find a better place to spend an afternoon or evening.

Kathleen's Cottage, once again, has been voted the best Irish pub in NH. It is a well-deserved honor. The food is traditional Irish fare at it's best. Having been to Ireland, the pub atmosphere makes you feel like you have traveled right back to the Emerald Isle. The staff are super friendly and the bar well-stocked. Be sure to go... More

Traveled to a great B&B in Bristol NH and after an 8 hour drive was looking for a quick dinner on a night most restaurants were closed. The B&B recommended Kathleen's and it was a great recommendation. The menu is extensive with the usual pub fare as well as Irish specialty dishes. The music was great and the food and... More

A recent return to this cottage restaurant confirmed that this is the true thing! A varied menu with American and Irish fare, Irish beers and whiskeys on tap and a variety of Irish and country style background music. Our lunch was served promptly, hot and correct including the traditional Irish Breakfast served anytime. The waitress was attentive and came back... More

Had to wait a while but were happy we did. The food is pretty good for the area but the best is the cozy atmosphere.

Just on the North side of Bristol, and if you go the speed limit you are past it before you can hit the brakes. But, I suggest a U-turn and go back. The Irish reels and jigs get just a little tiresome but the food is plentiful and really good. The menu is remarkable, lots of variety. The beef stew... More

My sister and I stopped at this restaurant not expecting much and were pleasantly surprised. It was a Friday late afternoon and we had the tempura battered mushrooms and they were wonderful. We also had the spinach salad and French onion soup. The waitstaff was friendly and very helpful.
