1640 Hart House for Dinner

Thanks to Mark Ring for suggesting the 1640 Hart House in Ipswich! We had dinner there recently and left there saying to ourselves: “Well, that was fun!”. It advertises itself as featuring Elegant Country Dining, but don’t let that intimidate you as it did me at first. It’s apparently an old home made into a restaurant so the seating can be in any of several rooms. The room we were in included a bar and a fireplace, dark wood beams and comfy big chairs. You can see from the pictures that it was a bit dark in the room (you might want to bring some extra lighting along if you are of a certain age……) but this did not deter from the enjoyment of the atmosphere and food.

Jim had the Hart House chicken and I treated myself to the Grilled Tenderloin. The spring roll appetizer was especially delicious. The pace is relaxed and efficient. The food was done to perfection and the service was friendly and “just right”. Reservations are highly recommended and we plan to return someday.

One thought on “1640 Hart House for Dinner

  1. Our family has had the pleasure of dinners at the 1640 Hart house on numerous occasions. We’ve never been disappointed. The atmosphere & ambiance only add to the enjoyment.
    It was a house that eventually became an inn. There were even many well-known people who visited & stayed there.
    We like the cozy, smaller rooms for dining. It’s a gem in Ipswich.
