We have been here at least 6 times and as a consumer of quality beer I must say I like the selection that this place offers. With a nice long bar and high tops for plenty of seating as well as booths for diners you can almost always find a seat. The apps are always fresh made and tasty and... More

We were in Amesbury for the weekend open house art show. Following our tour around town in various shops, we decided to have lunch. One of the staff at a gallery recommended the Ale House for lunch. The food and service were excellent and the server was especially helpful and pleasant . Great place.

We went to the Ale House tonight for supper. Evan, the bartender was great. The reason I go to the Ale House is for the shepherds pie. It is so awesome. My husband had the braised ribs and he said it was excellent. Good job Ale House. You keep me coming back.

We eat at the Ale House every visit to Amesbury and are rarely disappointed! Good pub food, draft beer choices excellent, attentive service and kid friendly. The short rib shepherds pie is always a treat, menu has a lot of variety!

I ate at the Ale House for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised. The inside is much bigger than the store front apppears. It has high ceilings and lots of wood as a nod to Amesbury's industrial heritage. The bar is long and has pub height tables but we requested the dining room and were seated immediately at... More

I went here with my daughter and we were prepared to be disappointed but we ended up being very happily surprised. It was exactly the opposite of their other pub venue(The Barking Dog) whose food quality is disgusting in both our opinions. In contrast we couldn't believe how different the menu was and how well the food was prepared at... More

Pricey pricey pricey. Average Food. Expensive drinks. Loud and cramped. Not a relaxing place. Seems to attract a younger crowd.
