Local. Seasonal. Majestic

The Darby Field Inn has been the “special occasion spot” in the Mt. Washington Valley for over 40 years, offering classic specialties such as roast duckling and panko crusted rack of lamb. We strive to provide a unique experience to both our inn and outside guests alike, and to make every visit to the inn an exceptional one.

Arrive early to enjoy a traditional beverage in the tavern, out among our perennial flower gardens, or fireside in our living room. Dinner by lamplight includes views of the Presidential Mountains, including the majestic Mt. Washington. Our dinner menu features seasonal recipes prepared with local ingredients whenever possible, including herbs and vegetables from our own garden. We also offer a hand-selected list of wines to compliment your meal.

Due to Covid-19 our dining space is limited in order to maintain safe social distancing for our dinner guests. We serve a three course meal on both Friday and Saturday evenings by reservation only with an advanced pre-order. Please reserve your meal with us as soon as possible to ensure that we can accommodate you at the time that you would most prefer.

Advance reservations with a pre-order are required.
