Cute riverside inn
Great place, refined food, service a bit slow, but we enjoyed taking our time by the fireplace.

Home Hill delivers time after
Home Hill delivers time after time-- with the food, atmosphere, service and the incredibly
friendly and professional staff. We love the Pub Room, but all the dining rooms are warm,
welcoming and very comfortable.

It was absolutely delicious!!
It was absolutely delicious!! The donut rolls were incredible, and everything from the sweet potato apple soup to the four different desserts was fabulous! YUM--we will be back, and soon.

We've dined at Home Hill many times and it's a beautiful place. Peter, the chef, keeps the menu sourced locally ( as in often right from River Rd. ) and keeps traditional items updated and interesting. With other items they delicious, playful, and creative. The staff are knowledgeable, welcoming, and provide outstanding service. It can be a special occasion place or your mid-week place. highly recommended!

One of the Best in the Upper Valley
We truly enjoyed our meal. One of the best dinners we have had in the Hanover NH region.

Chef is creative and contemporary. Meals are cooked to order from fresh, local ingredients. They list, or can tell you, all the local farms from where each ingredient may be found. Excellent meats and perfectly cooked. Service is great. Comfortable yet fine dining. No children's menu but accommodate for little ones. A definite must if in the Upper Valley. It is an Inn too but I have not stayed there.

The food was wonderful and the service attentive. An expansive wine list and great local menu options. It is on the pricier side, but it's worth it - perfect for a special occasion.

Great new chef
We had not been to the Home Hill Inn restaurant since the Inn changed hands some years ago, and took a chance for a very special lunch my wife and I have annually. Everything was quite perfect. Great, quiet, beautifully decorated dining room, complete with period oils on the wall. Superb menu and the new, young chef is simply outstanding. I had the soft shell crab and it was better than any I've eaten in New York, DC, Baltimore, etc. Fine wine list at most reasonable prices. We're going back often, and especially for important, romantic occasions.

GREAT alternative in western NH
We had our second very special dinner at HHI. The food was outstanding: excellent reasonably priced cheese platter, short ribs and soft shelled crab. The young people who wait tables are entirely professional and good fun. There are four (count them FOUR) ambiances to pick among: outdoors in a beautiful country setting, two nice formal dining rooms, a bar with music and "the gallery", which is next to the bar but much quieter (our choice). We need to drive 30 minutes from Canaan to get to HHI but it is well worth the effort.

Home Hill Inn is a gem in our rural community. The chef is extremely talented - the food is always good. It is great for a special occasion but they have created a separate pub area in order to broaden the opportunity for more casual dining. There is a patio that is used if the weather is good, The grounds are beautiful.

One of our favorites
We've had numerable great dining experiences at Home Hill, and this was one of our best.

wonderful staff and chef
This was a last minute find, and a hidden gem on the back roads of NH. Where else can you say you are in the mood for something diffent to your wait staff and a few minutes later they arrive at your table with a one of a kind breakfast creation that is not on the menu?
A great place to spend a Sunday morning Champagne brunch.

Country Inn delight
delightful staff and beautiful setting on rural country lane. No rush. Great brunch meet up place but the lounge is cozier than the larger diningroom if it's Sunday. Try any of the eggs benedict dishes.

5 miles beyond the beaten track
Home Hill is a pleasant 5 miles from the strip malls of West Lebanon, NH, off of Interstate 89, exit 18, located on scenic River Road. The atmosphere of the grounds is idyllic and the building is stately. Service was excellent and thoughtful. Though the menu is only one page, there were a variety of choices ranging from lobster rolls or a hamburger to Filet Mignon, as well as appetizers and side dishes made from local ingredients. Being a native of Chicago, I know a good Filet Mignon when I taste it, and theirs was the best I've had since moving to New England 15 years ago. We also had the roasted Halibut on a base of braised leeks - yum. Dessert was warm peach pie, which I thoroughly enjoyed with my friend.

One of our favorite spots
Another great meal at Home hill, and wonderful service too!

Ambience below expectations
Dining room was large with high ceilings, tables were well spaced, however as the room filled, we could hear the conversations of others nearby, and we needed to raise our voices to hear each other comfortably. Loud music was playing when we arrived at 6:30 - Frank Sinatra singing tunes, eventually this ceased. A beautiful fireplace which would have warmed the room considerably had it contained crackling logs, had been converted to a faintly flickering shadow of its former self with "virtual logs" and a gas flame. The service was average and the food above average.
This is not the setting for an intimate dinner - one expected a cosy and intimate setting rather than what was more akin to a banquet dinner in an elegant retirement community.

The cheese board was dissappointing
The cheese board was dissappointing, small amounts of cheese and not much to go with it, such as crackers. The eggs benadict was fair, the lobster was not wonderfull, not much flavor. The desert was good, but very small. We recieved a lovely tour of the rooms, as we were the only guests at the inn. We will try again, but would not recommend the lobster or the cheese plater. We would like to come back in the summer and eat outside. Beautifull grounds, staff very nice and attentive.

Food and menu is amazing, lots of local products offered. Warm friendly atmosphere. Only complaint wished they offered better desserts. Their dessert menu just doesn't stand up to their main menu and drink menu.

What's not to like?
I went on a Thursday night, with the wife, brother, and sister-in-law. We sat in the tavern enjoying $2.00 Harpoon on draft, live folk music, awesome food, and on that particular night, Whistling Pig Rye was there doing taste testing. Our server was friendly, prompt, and welcoming. We had a great time, and we'll be going again soon.

Excellent cocktails and atmosphere
Home Hill is a local gem with a focus on locally sourced food and a great cocktail menu. My wife and I love that they are now serving more "tavern fare." The food is consistently good and the presentation excellent. Order the cheese board as an appetizer!
The bar is top notch. The cocktail menu is quite impressive and creative, with plenty of homemade syrups and some barrel-aged cocktails. Easy on the absinthe rinse!
My only complaint is that some members of the waitstaff appear to be relatively inexperienced for a restaurant with fancy (and appropriately priced) cuisine. They do not lack for effort or friendliness but could use a little seasoning.

Pleasant and enjoyable, will dine again, service was great!

Table for 10
We were welcomed graciously on a frigid night by a hostess who took our coats, ushered us to our table in a spacious room with a fireplace, and took our drink orders. Even though there were many restaurant guests, the service was rapid. The cuisine was innovative and outstanding!
