Food was good. We ordered their special cheese plate and were disappointed with the amount of food we got for the price we paid however it was delicious. Our entree however were amazing and large and we both greatly enjoyed them. Home churned ice cream was outstanding! Our waitress was very kind. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner here a lot. Even thought about going back for lunch!

Dinning out in the time of COVID is challenging, especially if it's a restaurant not close to home. Oxford House Inn was inviting while employing strict pandemic standards. And the food was amazing!

This was our first visit to the Oxford House Inn, but it most certainly will not be our last. I have a gluten-free dietary restriction and when I made this reservation on Open Table, I mentioned it in my requests. When we arrived, the hostess handed me a gluten free menu with so many options it was difficult to decide. I began with a scrumptious Pear Ginger martini and ordered the gluten free rolls. It cost an extra $2.50, but there were 2 different kinds, both delicious and made on site! My husband was very pleased with his rolls also which were not gluten free. For my entree, I chose the pork tenderloin which was served in a lovely presentation over applesauce and along side squash and roasted broccolini, all cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the special, which was crab stuffed fluke. I don't recall what his came with, but it certainly looked wonderful and he couldn't say enough about how much he enjoyed it. We topped it all off with a shared dessert of chocolate torte which was adorned with a cherry compote and we also ordered the orange ginger, (dairy free), ice cream on the side. Everything was portioned just right so that we could enjoy each course and not feel that we overindulged. When ever our travels take us to Fryeburg, we will be sure to make the Oxford House Inn our dining destination!

Located within an inn on a main street, the food far exceeded our expectations. The menu was eclectic and the food was outstanding for both vegetarian and carnivore alike. The service was fantastic and the prices for food and drink were reasonable ($25 entrees). Plan to return when in the area. John

I dined here a month ago to the day.....consistently delicious from appetizers to desserts. The staff is always attentive, friendly, and accommodating. The ambiance is elegant but not stuffy. Anytime I am in the North Conway area, this restaurant will always be on the itinerary. Thoroughly enjoyable!

We were warmly greeted and seated. All staff wore masks. It's always hard to decide where to sit, the downstairs pub is a favorite, on warm nights the porch is very nice and the dining room is great if you can get the tables by the windows with the awesome view.
The beer and wine list are just plain excellent! always something new and different. The cocktails are creative and really good. The menu has a nice variety and the food and service is always incredible. Prices are really reasonable, would be twice as much in the city. The menu changes with the seasons, so we always like to go back to check it out.

The Oxford House never disappoints. This is our go-to for special occasions or just because. We sat on their porch and were well distanced during the pandemic. Our server was fully masked and amazing. The food is out of this world. Best and most consistent food at a nice restaurant!

Superb food in a lovely, quiet setting while visiting the White Mountains of NH. We stayed in Albany near the Kancamagus Highway at an inn. The drive to the Oxford House was only 20 min. from our inn. We had a beautiful view of the mountains along with a delicious meal from start to finish. Highly recommend.

I will start off on a positive note saying the food and service was quite lovely. However ran into an issue with the seating arrangement. I made a reservation online stating it was an engagement/birthday dinner for two and would prefer the best table they could provide stating in the notes on open table one overlooking the mountains would be preferable. They called a few hours after making the reservation saying no problem we would love to do that for you. Not five minutes later someone calls saying another party “just booked” that table. How is that possible when I made a reservation hours before. Ok, we will roll with the punches. Promised over the phone a beautiful table on the front porch. We were very much looking forward to dinner. Arrived on time for our reservation and were promptly seated arguably at the worst table on the front porch. Right next to two doors and it was wobbly and loud. Our server graciously moved us once another table became available. Very disappointed that we weren’t seated at a better table considering our request hours before and it was a special occasion, however, enjoyed dinner once we were at a comfortable, more quiet table.

We dined on a rainy evening, and the dining room felt warm and cozy. There were four tables in the room. Three were for couples and one had two couples....this table did not use their indoor voice as you could hear their entire conversation.
The menu offered some very interesting dishes making it difficult to choose. We split the little neck clams for an appetizer and then we each had the duck. Not usually a dessert person, but they offered a blueberry crumble as special. Wild Maine blueberry, a scant crumble and honey ice cream. It was perfect, not overly sugared so we could enjoy the blueberries.
The chef showed restraint with salt and sugar....two plusses that are often hard to find. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
I have never been to the inn but plan to make it one of our “ go to’s” should we be in the area again. Highly recommend!

We recently dined here for our elopement dinner. The setting was perfect (talk about a great view). The service was so attentive. Their cocktail and draft choices were craft and easily could have fit in the city. We both loved our meals and could not have been happier. I look forward to coming back.

The food and service here are usually outstanding; I guess the summer rush has impacted that a bit.

We had a 5:00pm reservation, we were about 10 minutes late, still hoping to have a nice dinner, but also get in and out by 6:30-7. We ordered dinner at 5:20. Salads came out at about 5:40. Dinner did not come out until about 6:35. The kids ate through all of the bread (they didn't have salads)...there was no offer of more bread, no refills on club soda or lemonade, no word from the waitress on why our food was late or acknowledgment that we waited so long. We noticed a lot of to-go orders going out, but I always thought seated customers' service takes priority? I had the vegan burger, which was dried out, barely warm, over-cooked...I wondered if it got cooked earlier then the entrees. The rest of the meals were good.

We will be back because it is a great restaurant, just disappointed in this particular trip...maybe they need some sort of policy for waiters to follow when the kitchen is delayed with prepping meals (like free refill of non-alcoholic drinks and bread basket).

Oasis at the door to the White Mountains. Quiet, outstanding food, great service, very nice atmosphere, where you go to have a top notch meal and not have to scream at each other in a relaxed setting. Portion is good, you won't waddle out, but will know you had a fine meal.

We eat at the Oxford House a couple times a summer. Good menu selections, attentive service, warm atmosphere, (especially when not having to socially distance) and reasonable pricing make for a most pleasant and enjoyable evening. Our recent visit this past Saturday was no exception. No question.....it stays in our dine-out list!

First time eating here. Reservation was for 5:30. Seated on time. Waitress was friendly. We were adventurous and tried Chicken of the Woods mushrooms as an appetizer (so good). My husband and I both ordered steaks, but they came out cooked backwards to the temp we ordered them. Our waitress took them back and both were re-made in a hurry. Hey, mistakes happen and they made good on it! After dinner we took our drinks and sat in their back back lawn on chairs overlooking the fields and mountains. Great view! Over all a good night, and we will be back. Looking forward to their basement pub opening again so we can try that!
