Description: Amy's creative approach to combining ingredients results in an intriguing and delicious menu. Enjoy a memorable fine dining experience while relaxing in our rustic cobblestone walled restaurant and greenhouse garden room. Our broad wine list and extensive selection of spirits will provide just the right accompaniment for your meal. And as a reward for eating all your veggies, you should treat yourself to a delicious homemade dessert. Afterwards, feel free to stop in at our spirited local tavern for an after dinner drink or a game of darts, with live music in the tavern on most Friday evenings.

Stopped in to the Tavern on a Friday night. Great, casual atmosphere, fantastic food - even entertainment later on - so nice!

Our go-to place for a casual meal- especially when we can dine outside.The Tavern menu has one of my all time favorite apps - which I sometime have as an entree. Eggplant fries (not greasy) light and crisp-- with a delicious savory curry tomato dipping sauce, dotted with warm goat cheese. It is a spectacularly tasty dish. I am not a Veg-head, but I also love the Howling Wolf entree- which consists of an assortment of perfectly prepared veggies and brown rice. It is a huge and colorful plate.
The burgers are good and the beers is cold. Service is friendly.

The upstairs bar and restaurart are very popular with locals, but is noisy and uncomfortable for dinner.

A topnotch chef with offerings from quick and light to fancy and filling. The tavern offers sandwiches, seafood, steaks, as well as vegan options. The restaurant is more aimed at foodies with linen tablecloths and an inventive take on local cuisine with unexpected combinations like the "north country chorizo paella." Everything is delicious and satisfying. We had and loved the curry appetizer, the crab-cakes, and the stuffed Portobello mushroom. Highly recommended.

This place is a "Gem" .Not very far out of the center of Manchester.Plenty of parking too. We have eaten at the bar for a few years & the food is always very good. The bartender is a real friendly guy too. We will be back again next time in Manchester. Good prices on quality food & drink .
