Top notch, chef crafted and New England inspired dishes in a classic New England home dripping with character through and through. Inventive but conservative/classic menus, a nice wine list, not inexpensive but totally worth the $. There's even a cool lounge downstairs for drinks and socializing if a full meal isn't on the ticket.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I especially appreciate the 'inventive but conservative/classic' bit, we run a fine line with between letting our creativity run, not pushing our guests too far over the edge of their comfort zone and keeping the menu relevant. Jonathan More

We live locally, and our last meal here was so good, that we had to brag about it to everyone we knew. Atmosphere in the pub is great and service was wonderful, and of course the food was fantastic. Well worth the price for that special dinner, Valentine's Day!

Thank you @drichard4444, for taking the time to review our establishment. I must agree that the atmosphere in Jonathan's, our granite walled pub, is fantastic! It offers a more relaxed area for those looking to dine out with a casual flare, yet still offers the full menu, supreme service and phenomenal culinary experience we are known for.

Oxford house is our absolute favourite place and we highly recommend it to all! **We drive from Rhode Island (5hrs) to stay in the Inn as well, the Oxford Hose gives a whole new appreciation for hospitality, on top of a phenomenal culinary experience.**

This was our second visit and it was just as good as we remembered. The food is outstanding and the service matches it! They have a cozy little bar in the basement and serve food there also.

I was dining solo and had the best cozy table! The food was outstanding. I had a delicious salad with warm brie cheese, pine nuts and duck.

We visit Mt Washington Valley every year. This restaurant is a joy and has become our favorite. Food is creative yet not crazy, atmosphere is casually elegant, and music is quiet jazz that allows you to converse with your party. Food is contemporary American with some well melded Asian or French influence.

Thank you, @jackholmes181, for making The Oxford House Inn & Restaurant a regular part of your Valley trip. It's very gratifying when our guests notice even the small things, like the quiet jazz playing in the background in our dining rooms. Even that detail shows how much our innkeepers love what they do.

You won't find much better north of Boston or west of Portland. Our fourth visit to this charmer did not disappoint. From the " pickle plate" appetizer, to the melt in your mouth twin filets, everything was prepared and served to perfection.
