We were here for a special dinner. If you have 12+ people, ask for the Birch Room, which is a private room off the lobby and is lovely. It is a large room off the hotel lobby, so it isn't directly connected to the Pine Restaurant, but all the food comes from the restaurant. Highly recommended.

The Hanover Inn has had many different eateries as its restaurant for the last 30 years. Pine is its latest - it's a trendy, somewhat out of place, hip atmosphere that is overpriced for college kids but caters to the more affluent crowd that is looking for something not so 'simple' in a simple part of New Hampshire.

Four of us ate - we got the calamari salad and the cauliflower salad. Both were amazing. It was a very good lunch. The menu has eclectic plates and a mild Asian palate. Really good food.

The service on the other hand was a train wreck. Perhaps we had a new set of servers. They did not know what beer was on tap, why vodka the restaurant offers, whether salad dressings could be swapped from one salad to another and generally looked (both of them) totally over matched and off kilter. And - not for nothing - this was lunch on a Wednesday. There was no one there.

We won't be back because of our GQ looking, yet totally lost wait staff.

Thank David M

While we were happy to read that your meals were most enjoyable, it is deeply disappointing that the service you received did not live up the high standards we have in place. Your feedback is appreciated and will be reviewed by our team. I do hope that you will reconsider and give us another chance to impress you at every turn.

Fine dining is not one of the strengths in new england and the pine restaurant at
the hanover inn does not change that assessment. Nevertheless a recent lunch
convinced me that it is not bad! Pork belly banh mi and an assortment of salads
were far better than one ordinarily encounters and well worth a return visit.

Started our anniversary celebration with the octopus appetizer; the sauce had just the right amount of zip. I had the duck and my husband had the scallops. The sauce on the duck made the dish. Although it's a large space and there are a number of tables, it was never noisy. I recommend Pine as a good place to have a nice dinner and spend some time with a special someone or a group of friends.

I had the pleasure of dining at Pine while staying at the Hanover Inn. Emerson, the bartender, and Doug, my sever, were very friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu and the area. They have a very creative menu and the deviled eggs are a must as a starter. The restaurant has a great ambiance and would highly recommend Pine for a great meal!
