We had a great party two weeks ago to launch The Fox Tavern, the name we have given to our restaurant. It was proposed to us early-on as innkeepers that the restaurant get it’s own identity and, so, after a few years of developing relationships with Monadnock region growers to help us realize our farm-to-table ambitions the day arrived to finally reward the restaurant with it’s own place in the sun. The most exciting part was probably the arrival of the new sign out in front, beautifully designed by Keene-based, Signworx.
Whence cometh the name, The Fox Tavern? From the man, Jedidiah Fox, the second owner of the inn, who purchased it from his father-in-law, Noah Wheeler. Under Mr. Fox, the inn was known as the The Fox Tavern.
And so a part of it is again today.
