Forced to eat at Weathervane

My friend and I are heading to Manchester later today and she has repeatedly said that she wants to eat supper there. I usually choose the restaurants when we are together so feel I must give in today. I don't eat gluten. What can I order there that won't be too bad to eat and won't take too much of my money for an inferior meal?

  1. I pulled up their online menu and I guess no one answered this query as there simply isn't anything I can eat there that isn't the expensive and unappealing broiled fish. Can you suggest any place else I might convince my friend to eat -- we'll be traveling route 101 between Milford and Manchester.

      I wish I could help, but I don't know the area at all, and you didn't give much turn around time! Let us know what you ended up doing when you get back!

        Time issued helped. We didn't even have time to stop at Weathervane. After the meeting, we went to a visability for Congressional Candidates and were invited to a party at the Puritan Back Room. I'd never been there before but had read good things here about the place. As it was, the yummy buffet was a gift from the owner but I noticed on their chalkboard menu that there were good sounding entrees for under $10. Their homemade ice cream is incredibly good too. For some reason, I thought the place was more expensive than it was but only the flavor of the food is upscale. The buffet meat offering was their chicken fingers, which had been marinated in honey, I think before being lightly fried. They were the best I've ever tasted. I think if I'd been ordering from the menu that the baked lamb offering for $9.95 would have been my choice. Friends told me it is a very good family restaurant. I'll definitely be back.
