Located in Lyme, New Hampshire, the Lyme Inn is a full-service inn offering deluxe accommodations in a country setting, space for business events and seminars, and upscale casual dining. Our restaurant offers hearty meals and a warm ambiance, and the tavern has a full spirit bar, 10 craft beers on tap, and an extensive wine list.
We were there with a party of eight and not one of us thought the food was good. The chicken on a brick was very dry and no sauce of any kind to help with that. Three of us got Salmon with Risotto which the fish a bit dry and the risotto was basically rice.
We had to keep asking for water and other things, the waiter was not very observant of what needs were.
The beer and wine was hard to mess up and what I felt like was the only good thing served.
We brought our own B'Day cake which was very good. If anyone is looking for a birthday cake Lou's in Hanover is the place to go.
I am sorry this was such a bad experience, We were celebrating a birthday the day before having to be host at a memorial for one of the host mother. It was a difficult time but one we had hoped to bring spirits up a bit by having a good dinner which fell very short.
It seems to me that a new chief is in order. To bad for such a nice place.
The Lyme Inn has a very nice restaurant with excellent food and service. It is a comfortable place to dine. The service is attentive without be overbearing. The food is wholesome and nicely prepared and displayed. Prices are modest and the wine list is more than adequate. It is well worth the drive to this small town to enjoy this gem.
We have been here a couple of times and it's generally low key but really pleasant. If you are looking for a nice drive and a pleasant quiet spot with both outdoor and indoor seating and both an informal pub meal or a little more formal in the dining area this is a nice choice. Nice cocktails also!
Atmosphere was excellent. Service a bit slow as the inn was quite busy. Scallops were the fish special and tasty, just a lttle dry. Salads were nice, and desserts excellent.
Became overlit in the Tavern. And freezing. Mediocre pasta dish. Waaah.
Quaint dining room and other dining areas within the inn. Beautiful outdoor furnishings and gardens. Very enjoyable experience with friends.
The food was excellent and creative. The menu was not large, but there was a variety so that everyone, including the vegetarian found something they wanted. Everything was perfectly prepared. It was for my daughter's graduation from college - I wish we had discovered it earlier.
We had heard good things about the Lyme Inn, but were quite deceived by the food. Fresh produce, but not tastefully prepared. We will not go there again, although the service was impecable.
Sadie our server was lively. She really listened to us and made sure my salmon was cooked exactly right which it was.
We had a great time.
Ps when I said it was a date I should say my wife and I have been married 40 years and it was a lovely date
One of our group ordered something Italian, which she said was "ok," but nothing like the version that is actually served in Italy. Otherwise, meal was fine and the restaurant has a friendly feel.
We came for Easter Brunch from separate locations in Massachusetts, Vermont and NH. We met at The Lyme Inn and were very pleased by the whole experience! The food on the buffet was excellent and the omelette station was perfect for the vegetarian in our group. The pastries and desserts were irresistible! If you were nearer we'd come more often!
Nice local inn, attractive dining area, very friendly and helpful staff but very disappointing food. It was an Easter buffet, so we were able to sample quite a wide range of dishes. But the choices were very conventional and the preparation very mediocre at best.
I have had good meals here in the past. I had the misfortune of ordering fish taco. Fried, veggies were bland, portion incredibly small, and way over priced at 19$ with two small fried fish.
Sunday night at the Lyme Inn was very quiet, but loved having the pick of the tables and being able to sit in front of a roaring, real-log fire--we had a table for four as close to the handsome fireplace as possible.
The appetizer of coconut shrimp was generously large, as well as addictive and delicious--they came with two different sauces and some micro-greens. If you have a relatively small appetite, this starter course along with a salad would be more than sufficient for an evening meal. In fact, I could not eat most of my main course and had to bring it home. This was a filet mignon, served with asparagus and mashed potatoes (although would have preferred those creamed, rather than just mashed, and with the skins removed). Also enjoyed the inn's choice of Malbec wine, which accompanied the meal.
The staff, one of whom i believe was the manager, were very welcoming. It made for a lovely evening.
The Lyme Inn featured wonderful service and an inventive menu that featured local ingredients. You'd pay a lot more in a bigger town for these menu items. The win selection was solid and the cocktail menu is top notch--don't miss the bar for a nightcap!
The Lyme in is my favorite restaurant inn in the Upper Valley. The Poutine is the best you can get.
Enjoyed our dinner at The Lyme Inn. Very nice atmosphere - cozy and warm. We ate in the main dining room, which is quieter than the bar. Good variety of choices on the menu. I had a vegetarian dish that was flavorful and well-prepared. The owner stopped by the table and asked for feedback, which was nice (love that free pen!).
