The Old Courthouse Restaurant Interior


THE OLD COURTHOUSE, established in 2004, has become a fixture to the Dartmouth Lake Sunapee area dining scene.  Dine in a beautiful Federalist era building located in the heart of Newport’s Downtown Historic District.

THIS CIRCA-1826 BUILDING served as the district courthouse for the past twenty-five years. It is located behind the Newport Opera House and features an elegant dining room and full service bar.

THIS FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESS has carefully preserved the elegance and simplicity of the building to provide a unique dining experience.
