Mount Sunapee Area Eats
I'm headed up to Mount Sunapee for a few days during President's week and a search on Chowhound yielded few and outdated results!
Any recommendations for places nearby for hungry, tired skiiers? I spotted recs for Flying Goose and Peter Christian's which look good for pub-style eats. I also saw references for Jack's in New London which looked on point, but appears to have closed. Anything else in reasonable driving distance? I'm thinking hearty and moderately priced.
Had dinner hear (The Anchorage) a few nights ago. Laid back, casual, local type atmosphere, right on the water. Sit on the covered deck if you can. Had the salmon - fresh and cooked correctly. Wife had lobster & pasta, which was also well prepared. Not gourmet but good. Make a good drink...and the server was a pro. Recommended.
Just had breakfast here. Food was well prepared and plentiful...come hungry. Some new menu items have been added. Good coffee too. Sat outside, on the rear deck. Service was great. They serve breakfast until 2pm. Recommended.

Flying Goose is okay. Food is middle of the road pub fare and they used to brew their own beer which is quite good, if they're still at it. Peter Christian's has gone downhill in my book. Still, they're both affordable. The New London Inn has gone through a few changes but is worth a look. Same is true for the Colonial Farm Inn. (I'm an owner of a small inn myself, so I have a soft spot for these guys. They are very friendly and the inn is beautiful.) If you have the time and interest, a trip to Hanover would broaden your options quite a bit.
My parents live in the area, and I have to agree that aren't a plethora of places. One place that I enjoy a lot is the New London Inn. It's not a cheap meal, but its very good. They do have a "tavern" that has a few items from the regular menu as well as a few more casual items.
La Meridiana was a good option a few years back, but I've heard its not as good these days.
