This is a treat for home cooking and great drinks. The food is great if you can get a seat. The bar is always busy and it's a fun crowd. A New Hampshire must!

Nothing fancy, expect a wait, but worth that wait. Chicken fingers are good and HUGE. Service is good and food is better. Go there, you'll be glad you did.

It's a short 10 minutes away. From the SNHU Ctr, drive north on Elm st thru the downtown for a mile or so. Take Right at lights at Webster Street (Rte 3/28). Puritan is on your right in about another mile or so.
