My husband and I visited The Prince and The Pauper last night for my birthday dinner. We had high hopes, as the reviews are all generally good, and some of the locals told us it was supposed to be the best in the Upper Valley. Boy were we disappointed...
The best way to describe this place is so-so country club-type food. The lamb entree that is supposed to be supreme, was heavy, a bit chewy and generally not that good. The appetizers were generic - the duck spring roll was hardly better than anything from Not Your Average Joe's. The ravioli appetizer was dull and basically uneventful.
Finally, the service was so-so at best. It took a while to get a menu, to get from salad to entree and to get a second glass of wine.
I am not sure what people see in this place. It is a quaint setting in a beautiful little town, but a bust by almost ever measure.
