We had dinner there before a show at the local performing arts centre. We came early and were the first there and we enjoyed inspecting the beautiful house. Lovely decor and perfectly selected music made a comfortable background to our meal. The meal choices were superb and a surprisingly extensive wine list, not just US brands but a truly global...

My wife and I spent two nights at The Oxford House Inn in mid-October, in the peak leaf-viewing season. The Inn looks right out on a wonderful meadow and forest beyond, with iconic autumn colors that were postcard-perfect. Natalie and Jonathan were wonderful hosts, with Jonathan presiding over a breakfast and dinner dining room with great choices and perfect execution.... More

Perry T, thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay. Foliage is a wonderful time to visit Western Maine / Mount Washington Valley to enjoy the leaves as they change.

Had dinner here recently with friends. Parking is right outside the inn. A number of small rooms make up the dining area. This creates a cosy, intimate environment. The menu is not large, but has a number of interesting dishes on it. Service was quick and friendly, wine list extensive. We had mussels to start, delicious, but be warned, heavy... More

You would be missing an amazing dining experience if you do not eat at the Oxford House Inn. Natalie and Jonathan has transformed this 1913 Inn into a bustling and delicious venue. You can opt for the screened in porch in the summertime, the inside dining areas with mountain views in Fall and the cozy downstairs Pub in the winter.... More

We enjoyed an early dinner on the enclosed porch so we could take in a bit of the view before sunset. What a lovely sight! And, the food and service were spot on. Highly recommend this quaint restaurant! Call for reservation and be sure to request the porch for a view.

Everything about the Oxford House was excellent...ambience, service and food. Very attentively served by Megan who told us stories (at my prompting) about a certain Mr S King - one of my heroes - who Megan has bumped in to from time to time. Many of Mr King's stories are set around the Fryeburg/Bridgton area and I have been obsessed... More

Last summer we had the privilege to eat here. Last night, however, it did not meet the same standard. Our service was lacking from the beginning. It felt like we were forgotten in the room. The chefs special appetizer was lacking in all manners. The scaps virtually inedible, the jerky so dry and tasteless, the ferns not pleasing and I'm... More
