Letter: A local gem
As a resident and business owner in Contoocook, I would like to urge people to look at the facts regarding the Contoocook Covered Bridge Restaurant. Not a single person has become sick after dining there, ever. This is a very well-run establishment and always has been. The food is excellent, the space is clean and the staff is friendly. If we want to keep strong businesses in our community, we must trust them and support them. If they fail, it hurts our local economy. The ripple effect of lost jobs, empty buildings and decrease of traffic through the village will impact every resident in some way. Thanks to the family-friendly atmosphere, my husband and I like to take our three children to the Covered Bridge Restaurant when we can, and that has not changed at all. If you are avoiding this place, or haven’t been before, you are missing out on a local gem. Hope to see you there!
