The Hancock Inn is the oldest inn in New Hampshire and one of the oldest bed and breakfasts in New England. In continuous operation since 1789, it remains true to its origin. The Inn is filled with colonial-style furniture, many antiques from New England, and paintings and curios “of the period.”

November through April, dinner is served five nights a week, Wednesday – Sunday. Dinner is served beginning at 5:30 p.m. The last seating is at 8:00 p.m. The menu changes seasonally and celebrates the comforts of fine New England cuisine.
