I attended a business dinner at the Norwich Inn and my summary is that it was good, not outstanding, but good. The service for seven of us was a little slow, but our server was attentive, and followed through on all of our requests.
For my meal, I had the warm goat cheese salad followed by the pepper crusted chicken and alfredo. The salad was excellent and my entree was good, but not overwhelmingly so. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give my meal a solid 7.
My colleagues all had good meals, but nobody raved about the meal.
I will add that the staff did well to accommodate our group. As I said, we were a business meeting, and we were able to have a private room where we could shut the doors. There were a couple of other groups, one being a (happy) noisy group celebrating just outside of the area we were in, so it was good to be able to close the doors where we could have a private discussion.
Overall, I am going to stick with my 7 out of 10 rating. Solid food, decent service, but not blown away by the experience.

We ate at the pub when the restaurant was full but also ate at the restaurant several times in the past year. The pub was busy and noisy -- as pubs should be -- and the food (with the same menu as the restaurant, I believe) was good. The restaurant itself is dignified and you really are made to feel the overall ambiance of the inn with old photos and artwork on the walls and the relaxed service. The food was quite good and contributed to the pleasant overall experience. I would go back for a nice quiet dinner with friends.

The pub is just one part of a larger inn with guest rooms and restaurant. It is a nice stopping point on a trip north on I-91. It's a few miles from Exit 13 in Vermont.

We stopped to meet an old friend for lunch on the way to Crawford Notch. We will definitely do a repeat.

Leave enough time to view the quaint ambiance including paintings and memorabilia.

Stopped here for lunch and to sample the beer. Nice little bar with a few tables. It was a little chilly to eat outside although they had propane heaters at some of the tables.

The fried mac and cheese fritters were really mac and cheese balls but they were very good just the same. The smoked brisket was incredibly smoky to the point of being difficult to eat. Unless you like REALLY smoky food steer clear.

The crab cake came was ok. It came on a bed of quinoa which was flavor but a bit too sweet to complement the crab.

I sampled several beers, they were all good. The Underground Bitter III was great.

I toured the bottom of the Inn: the dining area, parlor and porch. It’s very charming and I hope to be able to stay over in the future.
