Visiting our super wonderful friends in N.H. (we're from Michigan), they decided to take us to this lovely place for lunch. The amazing thing about this place is that it really once was a Catholic Church. And yes, our friends actually attend this parish and did get married here as well. The church was sold and is now a food... More

They have a good selection of beers. I heard about this on a local tv show. Had to check it out. They do serve food up to a certain time. Check with the servers

Went on a Sat. Night; sat @ bar; service was pitiful; it was moderately busy---- several empty stools @ bar.....so, not packed. We had menus, ordered a drink. Got attitude about a ice water, with lemon--- then no one ever came back to take dinner order. After a long wait>>>> we literally had to wave down someone to put order... More

We came to eat at the Holy Grail when we couldn't get into The Tuckaway Tavern. The wait time was less, and the atmosphere was much more than we expected. Very cool that it is in an old church and we love the Irish theme. The food was excellent - some of the best pulled pork I've ever eaten. The... More

Good quality food but portion sizes a bit small and sandwiches are not well filled. Service friendly but a little slow

I was there this past Saturday night. Place was packed with people. Staff was polite and friendly. Beer was decent. Food was not that good. I ordered chicken fingers which were extremly greasy and made me feel sick after eating them. Good atmosphere,bad quality food.

Visited the Holy Grail for the first time. This is my kind of place. Love the atmosphere and made me feel like I was back visiting England or Ireland. Had the shepherds pie and it was soooo good! Great combination of lamb and beef! So much to eat for the price too. They even had Smithwicks beer, really making me... More

Holy Grail, 64 Main St., Epping, NH. 9/10/16 At first you think you are going into a church, when in fact you have found a really good restaurant! The crowd attests to the quality of the food and drink. The Grail offers a selection of beers (both craft and normal) and has a menu of interesting sandwiches, salads and soups.... More

This place was awesome, The ambiance was nice, appears to be an old Church, we sat up in the choir loft, overseeing the inside of the building. The food came out piping hot and delicious. The waitress was very attentive. and the prices were reasonable, This is definitely a place we will revisit.

The Holy Grail is an Irish-themed pub-restaurant. Even for those who don't have a taste for Irish beer, Irish whisky, or pub food, this can be a fun dining experience. The menu is pitched to pub food, but has enough choices of fish, vegetarian options, and even gluten free fare that anyone can eat well. Salads are great, spinach-artichoke dip... More

Converted Catholic Church into NH's Best Irish Pub in the State! Original stain-glass windows, light fixtures and large harp shaped bar. Great family restaurant, something for everyone! Enjoy one of our 26 beers on draft or our specialty drinks. Amazing outdoor seating that takes you on a trip back to the old country. Our function hall holds up to 100 guests for the perfect celebration! Visit us once, and you'll be back again & again!
