The Toll Booth Tavern is a classic New England Restaurant & Tavern offering a comfortable and casual dining experience for all. Come and sit in our “tavern” or if you prefer be seated in our main dining room. Seating is also available on our outside deck weather permitting. The Toll Booth Tavern boasts a surprisingly eclectic and diverse yet extremely affordable menu which meets the needs of most diners. Affordable daily dinner specials are also available. In the Tavern or at your table choose from twelve ice cold draft beers or try one of our mixed cocktail specials prepared by our experienced bartenders.
On most Fridays, come in and listen to live music in the tavern featuring local bands playing classic rock, classic country and other genres with no cover charge. Full menu take-out service is also available.
We are open year round seven days a week (except Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Day). Skiers and snowmobilers (we are located on the trail system from Bennington from the west or Deering to the east) are always welcome.
We are located in our historic main building, built in 1800 and located on the 2nd NH Turnpike. Reservations are generally not needed but are recommended for Friday and Saturday evening. Also, to help us serve you better reservations are also recommended anytime for parties greater than eight.
740 2nd NH Turnpike – North
The Second New Hampshire Turnpike was chartered in December 1799 originally connecting Amherst to the Lottery Bridge in Claremont, NH. Becoming one the earliest “straight line” turnpikes in the country (very controversial at the time!) it eventually connected Boston to Northern Vermont and Montreal. This building, built in 1800 by John Gibson became the infamous Gibson Tavern, a frequent first night stagecoach layover for weary travelers. Also on this site are the remains of a stone foundation of one of the earliest “toll houses” (can be seen in the trees directly across from our swimming pool) established along the “Turnpike”, hence the name Toll Booth Tavern!
