Gilford, NH – A local Gilford landmark built in 1975 and operated as a restaurant and pub over the years has recently been sold. Tom Drouin, an Associate Broker with Roche Realty Group Inc, in Meredith, the listing agent, commented “This is exciting news for Gilford and the Lakes Region. This unique property located directly across the road from the Mountain View Yacht Club on 2 acres features amazing views of the Yacht club and Lake Winnipesaukee. Its central location near the Bank of New Hampshire Concert Pavilion, Gunstock Ski Area, Marinas, second homes and many condominium communities gives it a unique setting for a new restaurant/pub establishment.”
Drouin indicated the new owners are Kalley Cutler and Ron Allen, who presently own “Jamison’s” located at 472 Route 111 in Hampstead, NH. The new owners are excited to fill a need for impeccable service with extraordinary food and drinks in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Many changes are planned for the new venue.
The commercial property is located at 40 Weirs Road Gilford with an abundance of parking. The building includes approximately 1850 sqft. with a huge wrap-around sundeck on all three sides for outdoor wining and dining. Included is a full dining area, fully equipped kitchen, and bar/pub area.
Josh Judge, a sales associated with BHHS Verani Londonderry, represented the Buyer in this transaction. Tom Drouin of Roche Realty Group Inc., represented the Seller. Both Cutler and Allen bring their talents as a businesswoman and a general contractor to this new location after creating a successful restaurant pub operation in Hampstead. “We operate the restaurant as a family at Jamison’s, and everyone has a voice,” Cutler says. “The atmosphere and experience is critical. For example, at Jamison’s we created a pub-like environment with a quieter vibe in a beautiful dining room, a private function area, and wonderful seating on the outside deck in good weather. There is a lot of pride in the wide range of beverages and food served. Lounge menu options are diverse, flatbreads are particularly inviting, and our brick oven pizza with innovative choices have been popular. Our entrees range from classic meals to a multitude of innovative choices. Additionally, we serve a wide range of burgers and sandwiches. We pride ourselves in our signature cocktails and a well-curated wine list with many popular drinks created for all seasons. We will feature lots of seasonal drinks and many other draft beer options, including lots of kraft beer choices.”
Frank Roche, President of Roche Realty Group Inc., commented “we are very proud of this sale because of its strategic location… all of the ingredients are there to make this commercial property a very special venue with experienced restaurateurs with a unique vision to benefit consumers in the Lakes Region. It should be a win-win situation for everyone involved.”
