The Hanover area is a dining destination in the Upper Valley. With locally owned and operated restaurants that specialize in chef inspired cuisine and true New England hospitality.

Whether you prefer Italian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, American, Thai, pub fare, tapas or continental cuisine, you can find it here. Visit when the weather is warm and you will find that many of our restaurants have outdoor seating.

A cornerstone of the community is Lou’s Restaurant, one of the downtown breakfast/lunch options, a tradition since 1947 and a favorite breakfast gathering place for locals and visitors alike. For a touch of the North Country, several places offer bistro food and live music in a rustic setting. Just outside of town, Jesse’s serves steaks and seafood in a log cabin reminiscent of an Alaskan adventure.

Or visit The Norwich Inn to experience their micro-brew pub featuring its own Jasper Murdoch beer and classic New England charm. In Lyme, you can find pub fare at the Latham Tavern in Dowd’s Country Inn with a choice of great local beer on tap or farm/sea to table fare at Ariana’s in the Lyme Inn.
