Great place to have a beer


I would 100% recommend The Hampshire House to anyone looking for a special place for dinner or brunch. Our food was perfect, menu was limited for easter, but I see that as a good thing - specific items chosen for the day. Ambiance was fantastic, and it's really the main reason we go there....beautiful classic building with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the park....has the feel of being in the home of a wealthy 17th century boston family's library....Service was also impecable, when it seems so many other places it has gone downhill in the past few years. Attentive without being intrusive; friendly and genuine. We have been several times over the years, and always leave wondering why we don't come more often, it has never disappointed us.

We honestly didn't know what to expect with the Four Handed Illusionist Show, however, it was beyond our expectations.The comedy mixed with the magic and illusions was so exciting. We were there for my brother's birthday. We were greeted by a wonderful hostess named Rachel and the unbelievable top notch customer service from the barmaid's Alyssa and Bau. All three of those ladies were amazing and I love to bump into them again. Rachel was super accommodating and always had a smile.The barmaid's had wonderful drink suggestions, smiles, customer service and told us how much we would enjoy the show.Well, the main attraction was the 2 gentlemen that put on an unbelievable show. I remember magic since I was little and you don't see that anymore. I would come back to the see the show with other friends or family members again and again.I love that it was required to dress up because when you look good, you feel good and what else was nice...It was a very intimate show that was super interactive with the audience. You were never put on the spot, you were always part of the show. If you haven't seen it get yourself a few tickets and go

Not much room to sit. Last time, their upstairs bar was open, not this time. Cool to experience but servers don't make it feel that way, more "annoyed". Fun souvenir shop.

Planning a wedding remotely is stressful. However, Sydney Turnbull at The Hampshire House was able to make it a stress-free experience for us. The day was magical. The food was outstanding. Our guests commented on the exceptional service and quality of the food. Sydney is a great listener and was able to guide us on the many choices available and exceeded our expectations.


From beginning to end, Hampshire House and Lindsay were so easy to work with. At the start of our wedding planning adventure, there was so much stress around all of the little bits and pieces we would need to get this event together. As soon as we reached out to Hampshire House - oh, it was great. They take care of it all and the quality is exceptional.Hampshire House delivered on food. They delivered on ambience. They delivered on professionalism and service. They delivered on drinks. Our guests have described our wedding as magical, unique, cozy, beautiful, warm, well organized. All things we wanted and looked for in a venue. We are so happy with our decision to work with the team at Hampshire House. Thank you Lindsay and team for having things run so smoothly.Hampshire House is the venue to book if you’re looking to deliver a beautiful and memorable Boston wedding.

We recently celebrated our small wedding at the Hampshire House and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. From start to finish, the entire experience was outstanding, thanks to the exceptional professionals at Hampshire House and our incredible event coordinator, Sydney.The staff’s attention to detail and commitment to excellence ensured that our wedding day was nothing short of magical. We were particularly impressed with how seamlessly the operations were executed - big thank you Karim!! From coordinating vendors to managing the flow of the event, everything was executed with precision. The catering was excellent, with delicious food and impeccable service provided by the staff. Our guests were not only impressed by the beautiful venue but also by the level of service they received throughout the evening.Sydney is a true gem and has been an absolute pleasure to work with! From our initial visit to the wedding day, Sydney exhibited a level of professionalism, expertise, and effectiveness that made the entire process smooth and stress free. Sydney - you saved us many countless hours of planning!!! Your willingness to go above and beyond, even recommending last minute makeup artists, truly made a difference in bringing our vision to life!The Hampshire House, with its historic charm, elegant ambiance, and a beautiful grand piano, provided the ideal setting for our celebration. The venue’s two levels offered wonderful sunset views over the Public Garden and a seamless transition between cocktail hour and reception. The investment in Hampshire House and its exceptional team, with their top-notch service and delightful cuisine, is undeniably worthwhile for any event. We were so glad we got to celebrate our wedding here and we would choose the Hampshire House again in a heartbeat!

Hampshire House was a dream!! All our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. The location is also amazing- we did our photos in the public garden, on comm ave, and around beacon hill which all turned out beautifully! On its own, Hampshire house is an amazing venue, but what really made it incredible was Sydney (venue coordinator). Sydney was so incredibly helpful from the very beginning all the way up to the day of. Sydney was with us for every part of the planning process and truly made our vision come alive. She patiently answered all my millions of questions and never made me feel dumb for asking. She quelled all my anxieties and truly went above and beyond to make sure our day was absolutely perfect!! Another thing we loved about HH and Sydney was that there were 0 hidden costs. They were very up front about the pricing and cost breakdowns which we did not find at a lot of other venues we looked at. If you go with Hampshire House and work with Sydney know that you are in amazing hands and will be so well taken care of. They didn’t miss a single detail!! 10/10 could not recommend Hampshire house enough!!


I did not stayed here but came to this place since we visited the cheers restaurant downstairs

If you are looking for a classic historic mansion in Boston to host a wedding this is the place. We had our wedding reception here and everything was perfect, from the food to the decor. We worked with Sydney and she was the best in responding to all of my questions. She was very polite and made sure the day ran smoothly. Our wedding was beautiful, more than 75% of our guest were visiting from out of town and really enjoyed Hampshire House. We keep hearing from our friends and family how delicious the food was and they were so full at the end of the night they barely had room for wedding cake. Sydney and her staff are very professional and made sure everyones allergies were addressed, everyone was very pleased with the service. The night flowed so smoothly, I could not have asked for anything better.
