Wait staff was great about answering questions about the building and neighborhood. Food and beer were great too.

The old mill isn't functioning, but the wheel is still there. You can get a fair glimpse of it from the porch of the eateries on either side, or cross the river (by car or covered bridge walk) to see the entire wheel (and mill) from the other side.

The Grist mill in Littleton was first opened in 1798. I was on my way to St.Johnsbury, Vt, and saw the highway signs that said Historc Attractions, this exit. I was not in a hurry, so I decided to stop off and see what was so historic in tiny Littleton (population ca. 4000). There is an information booth right on... More

Last week we stayed in Whitefield, NH and decided to try Shillings in the Littleton Grist Mill for supper. Open air kitchen and great atmosphere. Walked in the door and waited less than 5 minutes and got a booth on a busy night. Waitress came right over very quickly and service was excellent. Decided to try their beer. They had... More

Really happening place for lunch. Earth tones and heavy hardwood abound. Overlooks a flowing river and covered bridge. Awesome flatbreads, incredible assortment of european beers and excellent wait staff. Must go!

It is a brewer now. Come and walk around the main streets. There are a lot of shops, art studio and restaurants in and around the downtown district. Take a walk along the river and go across the cover bridge. It is a beautiful small town. Park alone the river so you will be out of busy traffic.

Grist mill is no longer open. It was a super place to visit with great flours and mixes. We really miss it. I'm glad I stocked up on my oat pancake mix before they closed. I hear that they still have their products available online.

We visited this grist mill while on a road trip through NH. Call before stopping by as they don't seem to be open everyday. We enjoyed chatting with the owner who travels quite a distance from his home to the Mill. They have a short video and some milling artifacts which were educational. The best part of this stop is...

The wheel was working while we were there,but not grnding anything. Great selection of products, many gluten free. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't go out of my way, but if you are in town be sure to visit and check out the covered bridge nearby.
