I never have to ask my husband where he wants to go for an evening out. The answer is always the same: “ The Holy Grail Restaurant in Epping, NH.” Although, there are restaurants that are much closer to home, The Holy Grail offers so much more than a chain restaurant can offer. It started out as St. Joseph’s Church in 1895 and more than a century later people still come to eat, drink, and be merry.
Experience the days of Camelot with its old world charm. While waiting for your food, you can enjoy your surroundings, enjoying the original stained-glass windows, choir loft, and painted mural of an old Irish village. There are many happy people to talk to, from the smiling staff to other happy patrons looking to tell you old stories of yesteryear.
The Irish/English cuisine has a lot to offer. We usually start off with the Irish Nachos, drunken mushrooms, or the “Collection Plate” – it is a church after all. We then order from the dinner menu, I typically order something from the “Papal Pasta” section or the “Saintly Seafood” section while my husband goes right for the Guinness steak tips from the “Steaks fit for a King” section of the menu. On the few occasions we bring the whole family, my children order from the “Sinless sandwiches and ordained burgers” section or from the “Wee lads and lasses” menu.
There is also a large brew section along with wine and spirits. You can order your beer from the Deified Draft or the Blessed Bottle Brew section of the menu. The Blessed Bottle Brew is in three sections, The Royal Court, The Brews of Dukes, and the Brews of Peasants. So no matter your taste or station, you welcomed at The Holy Grail Restaurant - located at 64 Main Street, in Epping, NH
