We had a soup, sandwich and fish-and-chips for lunch. Servers were extremely friendly and accommodating. Food was very good and the atmosphere is very authentic country English pub.

Kind of off the beaten path a quaint little place Hidden Gem of Chester County not exactly the kind of food that I care for but I went along because that's the kind of food that the couple we went out with like.

The Whip is an excellent venue. Food is excellent and service is good. However parking is extremely difficult and wait is long especially on weekends. I guess one could say that it is well worth the wait!

Atmosphere and food always dependable. Good service. Very authentic, a bit pricey, but it’s worth the drive out to beautiful countryside.

With a quaint farmhouse feel and incredible staff you feel very welcomed and relaxed. The menu has an English Pub theme. I recommend the Welsh Rarebit (a cheese and beer dip) as a starter. The beer selection is incredible and the staff is very knowledgeable...More

I found this little pub quite by accident. Just exploring the county side and found this gem at the intersection of 841 and Springdell Road. Some wonderful brews on tap with a traditional english pub fare. The special of the day was fantastic and the...More

You have directed this question to a fellow trip advisor member. It is better asked of the restaurant. As a previous answer indicated they do not take reservation and wait times can be long; one can always have a drink at... More
