Hit this bar after lunch rush. Lots of seating in the restaurant, but my friend and I decided to saddle up to the bar and have a pint of Red Hook Porter on their nitro-tap. The bartender was friendly and quick to hand us menus and take our orders.

Very clean interior, with a few flat screens. The front windows give a good view of the New Hampshire state capitol. The beer was good, and the food was great. The bison burger, cooked to perfection, and the bratwurst with amazing mustard were quite filling. Two lunches and two beers came to $27, well worth the price of admission to this nice place right on Concord's main drag.

Great spot in downtown Concord, NH. Had the Barley burger and potato salad. Food was perfect on a 92 degree day. Stone Face IPA on tap was great. Probably the best IPA in NH at this time, from a relatively new and hard to find brewer. Service at the bar was perfect. 12 taps, but all quality brew.

Stopped in on Friday night before a show at the Capitol Center to grab a bite and have a brew. The place was mobbed and there was a 45 min. wait so had to change plan.
Followed up the next day (stayed in town) in the early afternoon and breezed into the bar and got to enjoy a very pleasant lunch in a comfortable clean establishment.

The bartender was very good. The food was great the beer selection was not overwhelming but the tap had about 13 brews. Mostly macro but as has been mentioned they have a great pale that is made by Harpoon.

Would definitely go back next time I'm in town.
It's worth a visit.

This is a great place to go to from time to time, especially for me...a middle aged guy who hates the bar scene. What I like about it is that it is clearly a bar in downtown Concord across the street from the State Capitol building, but they offer some above average beers both on tap and in the bottle. It is an Irish style bar and offers Irish style food. They have made arrangements with Harpoon, Long Trail, and other regional brewers to put a Barley House label on some of their offerings. They usually have at least one macro tap to appease the masses but the other 8 or 9 taps are often something a little different like Belhaven or Smithwicks. They offer plenty of bottle choices such as Brew Dog, Chimay, and others. The food is generally burgers, sandwiches, and stews served with an Irish twist. A lot of folks like their scallops. It is a popular place for the movers and shakers. If you are lucky you may run into a few State Senators, State Representatives, or even the Governor when you visit for lunch.

My favorite bar in Concord (I know, not saying much). The beer selection is rather average with the one good regular their house pale ale (Harpoon brewed). The food isn't your typical pub fare. They start you off with homemade humus and breadsticks and pretzels. The menu is practically gourmet with a major Irish influence. My favorite thing to get is their Dublin Whisky Gravy burger. Every time I've ordered it I got it perfectly MR. It's a 1 1/2 inch thick juicy patty encrusted with black peppercorn topped with blue cheese, deep fried onions, and whisky gravy. It might be the most balanced burger I've ever had.

The atmosphere is a nice cozy, brown and black pub. Service is decent although I've had my share of slow servers, especially when it was slow.

Beer pricing is standard but the food pricing is a little pricey. I love the burgers, but $12 is pretty steep.
