Looking for a restaurant to host a dinner party for 30 in the Derry/Hampstead area

I am planning my son's christening and need to find a restaurant that will host 30 people close to the Derry/Hampstead area. Any suggestions? I have contacted the Brookstone, but are there any other places to check out?

  1. The Common Man in Windham is a really cozy New England type of place. A bit further north is the Puritan backroom in Manchester.

        I looked into it, but it is a bit pricey for a luncheon. : ( They will probably want $50/plate there.

      2. I hear good things about Brookstone in Derry but haven't been.

          Thanks. I found their menu online. I have been there before and the food is pretty good. I am considering the Brookstone, the Common Man and the Village in Hampstead now.

            Atkinson Country Club does a nice job also. Brookstone recently closed their restaurant but is going to keep the Events part open for now.

              Good idea to check out Atkinson Country Club. I didn't know Brookstone closed their restaurant. Interesting....
