The General Warren remains one of Chester County's finest and most historic restaurants. The scallops are to die for, but really, everything is first-rate. Always consider the specials. And in the cold weather, a crackling fire (real wood, not gas!) awaits in two rooms. Proprietor Patrick Byrne always provides a gracious welcome.

My fiancé and I enjoy the GWI often, so when faced with the decision of where to have our rehearsal dinner, we immediately decided the general warren inne would be perfect! We were looking for a classy venue with outstanding food and they exceeded our expectations. Patrick was phenomenal to work with and went beyond to make sure everything was... More

I had always heard good things about this restaurant but tonight was the Worst dinner EVER.... bar-none. Appetizers cold (stuffed mushrooms stone cold and when I bit into it, the sausage was pink inside), soup cold (had to send it back 3 times to get it hot, filet barely warm, asparagus cold, just the absolute worst dining experience is ever...

My husband and I ate here last year and it was amazing. We returned last week and it was just as wonderful. We have to occasionally travel to Pennsylvania for family and it looks like our new routine is to reward ourselves with a night out at The General Warren Inne. We both enjoy a good steak. I had the... More

My family (2 adult daughters from NYC) have lived in the Malvern area for 25+ years and have not gone to General Warren Inne. Sometimes the treasures nearby are forgotten. We went recently for a Christmas holiday dinner and were absolutely delighted with the complete experience. Valet parking, attentive servers with GW uniforms, great holiday decorations and superb menu and... More

3 couples on a Saturday night. The restaurant was decorated very nicely for the holidays. All service staff, from valet to coat checker to servers, were very pleasant and very professional. Noise in the main dining room, which had people at every table, was unexpectedly low. Everyone at our table could hear the conversation. Talk at other tables was not... More

From the parking attendats to the coat checker and maitre d', we were welcomed with genuine warmth. The wait staff was skillful, clearly enjoying tossing Caesar salad and flaming bananas Foster. Beef Wellington, Scallops, kid's pasta, and pan seared duck breast were all perfectly prepared. Nice selection of desserts, including excellent praline pecan cheesecake, black forest torte, and cranberry apple... More

This place has a reputation for its excellent Turtle Soup and Crab Cakes and it didn't disappoint. Extremely classy decor and a professional friendly staff make it well worth a visit. Highly recommended

I've been twice for business dinners. Excellent atmosphere, location, food and service. They try to make the bar area comfortable to regular visitors, but it's clear that most of the people there are celebrating something special. Well worth visiting.

We came from NJ for my mother in law's funeral. We had been to the area dozens of times and were very tired of the mall eateries and hotels. Consequently, we booked the repast and our own accommodations at the General Warren. We could't have been happier! I consider myself a foodie and I adored the restaurant. They had exceptional...
