have lived here for about 7 months but lived in the region for nearly 20 years and just tried this. Very cozy place, pretty much what you'd expect...beams, stone....warm and comfortable. Good service. Got pub food - burger, fish, fries, beer, caesar salad. No complaints. Burger in particular was excellent. Would go back. Solid beer and spirits list. Would definitely... More

Went here after a funeral service to share a meal with family and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Excellent food and very friendly . Unique old building to explore.

The menu at the ffrost Sawyer Tavern is diverse, modern, and traditional all at once. The quality of food is superb and there's something on the menu for everyone. My only regret is that I couldn't try more things on the menu!

The f Frost Tavern in the Three Chimneys Inn where we spent two amazing nights. We ate dinner in the tavern and it was Devine to say the least. We both ordered the special of the day which was filet mignonette served with red roasted potatoes and fresh green beans. This was possibly the best steak I have ever had... More

...darkish and antique with good seating arrangements for a small area so no one had to squeeze by or interrupt others to get to seating. Food was very good, I splurged on the 12 oz. steak and with all the rest of the meal was sorry as I couldn't finish it all! A very decent brunch that came with our... More

We hadn't been there for a while and now I have to think why we don't go there more often. I had the salmon with a citrus sauce paired with the risotto. It was perfectly cooked and the taste was excellent. My husband had the haddock fish and chips and they gladly substituted the french fries. We started with drinks,... More
