My family and I enjoy coming here whenever we are in the area. It's just down home cooking with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Nothing fancy just good old NH comfort food with a great staff to make you feel welcome! Stop by and visit if you get a chance!

Went for lunch and the place was packed!! Ordered a pitcher of their pale ale-tasted more like an IPA. Waited about 30 minutes for our food and our coke slaw that we ordered never came... but the food we did get- roast beef and steak sandwich were both very good and very filling. Clearly it's a locals hang out, waitresses... More

Stopped here on a driving trip through New England. Shared a burger with my husband and added jalapeños and mushrooms. Very delicious! Noticed there were a lot of group photos on the wall of men in front of a bus and there was a reference to "bass" in one pic. I asked where they were going on their annual fishing... More

If you're out for a fall ride (or snowmobile ride for that matter) this is a great place to stop for a beverage and a snack, or lunch or dinner. It's very close to scenic route 153 in downtown Sanbornville. Sandwiches, burgers, soups and specials are all excellent. Beer is cold and wine is good. (No liquor.) The Pub is... More

We have been eating at the Poor People's Pub for over 30 years and hope to go there for 30 more. The food remains consistently excellent. Believe it or not, we usually order one of 2 meals; chicken salad on a hot dog roll or a pub burger with a green salad and the best ever warm German potato salad.... More
