I have to say this was one of the most pleasant dining experiences of my life and for sure the most pleasant from my stay in Manchester. Myself and my mom stayed at the Equinox a couple weeks ago for our annual birthday trip and while we usually eat dinner on that property I decided to do some research and venture out. I am so happy I did. I saw this place online and it looked exactly like the type of place myself and my mother enjoy. It is such a cute old tavern that reeks of history in a very nice location with a very good early bird special deal with lots of dinner choices. Between 5:00-5:59 you get a fantastic meal for just under 18 bucks. I was sure to make reservations as I can tell they are very much appreciated here and also I was sure to be in by 5:59. Myself and my mom both got the chicken pot pie on the special. First we got very nice and soft warm bread along with cranberry fritters which were phenomenal . There was also some kind of nice butter that went along with the bread I think maybe maple that was very tasty. Then we got the house salad and it was delicious. It had a very tasty dressing and blue cheese crumbles. After that we got our chicken pot pies which were both excellent and my mom is hard to please but she loved it. We also got a side of green beans and coleslaw which were both good. After our meals we had a choice of desert. We both went with the vanilla ice cream with hot fudge and the vanilla ice cream was very very good. It kind of had a real old fashioned homemade flair to it, it was delicious. Our waitress was also very attentive and kind.
At the end of our meal a lady who I think was the owner was nice enough to give us a history/tour of the place when she saw myself and my mom looking around. The tavern is interesting because it has all these different history filed rooms and one room even had an original brick oven fire place and we were told about how people would cook by hanging pots over the fire. I honestly can’t wait to go back and I plan on being in the Manchester area again at the end of this week and I have already repeatedly told my boyfriend that we are making reservations for us and his parents. I want to try the turkey dinner it sounded very good.
