New Hampshire’s Very First Tavern Restaurant Has Almost Literally Been Around Forever

New Hampshire was settled nearly 400 years ago. That makes for lots of history! From some of the oldest hiking trails in the country to covered bridges and even bars, simply making your way through the state is a history lesson all on its own! But, for some seriously cool history we recommend making a visit to the oldest restaurant in the state. It’s seen more than you can imagine and it’s still around today!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Fox Tavern at the Hancock Inn is typically open year-round. Right now they’re operating Sundays from 5 p.m to 7 p.m. Be sure to check out their website and follow them on Facebook to keep up with any changes in opening times and schedule. As you know, things can change quite quickly. If you have questions you can reach them on 603-525-3318.
