Menu leaves a little to be desired (could have more apps/fries). Food was good and was served piping hot! Service was a little slow.

We go to "the Pub" about every one to three months, depending, and we've never been disappointed. Their subs and burgers are generous and priced right, the bread is FAB - super fresh and soft - and their pizzas are good but just be aware they are on the small side. The subs are not small. Fries are crispy and... More

The kids liked there options and ended up with pizza and chicken fingers. The sandwiches are filling that three people couldn't finish them (had appetizers too) and took half home. The pepperoni sticks are pictured below. There... More

My family and I enjoy coming here whenever we are in the area. It's just down home cooking with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Nothing fancy just good old NH comfort food with a great staff to make you feel welcome! Stop by and visit if you get a chance!

Waited about 30 minutes for our food and our coke slaw that we ordered never came... but the food we did get- roast beef and steak sandwich were both very good and very filling. Clearly it's a locals hang out, waitresses... More

Stopped here on a driving trip through New England. Shared a burger with my husband and added jalapeños and mushrooms. Very delicious! Noticed there were a lot of group photos on the wall of men in front of a bus and there was a reference to "bass" in one pic. I asked where they were going on their annual fishing... More
