Great new menu with some new items that were usually specials but are now on the menu. Fantastic Service, music on Friday nights to dine by, and the cucumber drink is super good tasting and gives you a little kick! Makes you feel like summer as the snow falls down in NH

We stayed at the Monadnock Inn and had dinner at Parson's Pub, part of the Thorndike Restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. My wife had their hamburger and 3 glass wine tasting which was good. I had the Asian short ribs which was also good. For dessert we enjoyed the apple crisp. My only negative comment was with the...

We spent the day exploring the area and visiting the state parks and drove by the inn early in the afternoon. Stopped in to see if they were open and the chef said they started serving at 5PM. We called around 6PM to make 8PM reservations. There is the pub on one side and fine dining (white linens) on the... More

Dined here on Wednesday night, sitting on the enclosed porch. It was a lovely evening, restaurant was not crowded. Our waitress was excellent. Drinks were great, food was good. Nice atmosphere. Many choices, with several specials. Four different options were purchased, and no one was disappointed. Will return.

We dined there on a Saturday night. Everything was really delicious and cooked to perfection. Some tables complained that night that service was too slow but we were happy and our waitress was extremely friendly. We liked the choice of food (choice between pub fare or restaurant). We will definitely com back if around!

We were staying at the Inn so figured we would just grab dinner here after our hike up Mt Monadnock. I definitely recommend making a reservation as Friday and Saturday nights are quite busy! They have a dining room, outside screened eating area and a little pub area as well. There was also a man there playing piano and a... More

We have been here several times and have always had a great meal. We enjoy seeing Sandy, who seems to always be the one to wait on us. If you are in the Jaffrey area try it out. We have eaten in both the restaurant and the pub and have enjoyed every meal, including breakfast when we have stayed in... More

On Easter Sunday my wife and I decided to take a scenic ride before coming home and having dinner. We love the inns in the Monadnock area and decided to visit the Monadnock Inn to have a glass of wine and enjoy some conversation. When we arrived we were greeted very nicely and proceeded to sit at the bar to... More

I have enjoyed Thondikes, everytime upon my annual visit to the beautiful foliage encircled "quintessential " New England town of Jaffrey,NH. It took just a single visit to realize that I was still missing out on one amazing experience... The experience that is ONLY exposed to the overnight guest of the Monadnock Inn- yes, the house of Thorndike's restaurant. Stay... More
