Went for lunch on a Sunday, looong wait as they do not take reservations but the food and the service were both good. I had the beef on weck and it was very good. Would go back but try to find a time when they were not so busy.

Great authentic English pub in the heart of Chester County horse country. Huge beer and ale selection, wonderful food, cozy atmosphere and friendly service makes for a very popular spot. Only down side is it is so popular it is hard to get in.

The atmosphere was cozy but I was disappointed to learn they only served beer and cider for alcoholic drinks and they were somewhat expensive at $7+ per glass. I got the bison sliders which was good but my wife complained that her cod was small and nothing special

Wonderful options to explore, although it's hit or miss. Quail appetizer is really an overdressed salad with one lonely semi-boned quail.

Burger was amazing. Fish & Chips were excellent but... More

Classic English pub. Authentic menu. Rugby on the tele. Extensive beer menu including UK imports. Every weekend, special dinner menu. Tonight roast beef and Yorkshire pudding and sticky toffee pudding. Awesome. On Saturday come early. It's packed starting at 4pm. The offer free valet parking.

the site was lovely deep in horse country. noticed a few horse ties in case you rode up on your trusty steed. the brunch menu was varied and the black and tan was as good as Ireland.
