Common Man Ashland, N.H.

The Common Man restaurant in Ashland, N.H. is our flagship location!

Opened in 1971 by owner Alex Ray, the Common Man Ashland serves great American fare with flair! Meatloaf like mom makes, home made baked macaroni and cheese, and our famous crab cakes, voted Best of NH five years in a row by readers of New Hampshire Magazine, are just some of the delicious items on the menu.

Enjoy dinner in our dining room, or upstairs in our Bar ‘n grill, complete with cozy couches, a wood stove and parlor games. Settle in and make yourself at home!
