Ambrose Restaurant

Ambrose Restaurant 1

At Ambrose we offer contemporary cuisine prepared with seasonal, locally sourced products, combined with a fusion of ingredients from our motherland. We serve creative plates that are designed for sharing, and are brought to the table at a comfortable and steady pace throughout the meal. The plates are served in our elegant dining room featuring a fireplace and overlooks our historic downtown. During warm weather, our diners are also welcome to enjoy our lovely garden patio and dine al fresco.

We offer a fine selection of wine, beer, craft cocktails, and delectable plates. We invite you to spend a leisurely afternoon or evening in one of our comfortable spaces.

Ambrose Restaurant is named after an Exeter philanthropist, Ambrose Swasey, who was an important figure in Exeter’s rich history. We encourage you to explore our quaint town and look forward to welcoming you to Ambrose!

Our hours are from Wednesday through Saturday 4PM to 9PM and Sunday 4PM to 8PM.

Reservations are highly recommended, please call (603) 772-7673 or email us at to reserve your table.
