Who would have thought about having breakfast in the woods in Philadelphia. Our friends did and so yesterday we had a great brunch in wonderful setting. It was cool and cloudy day and so we walked into the Inn with a crackling fire. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and the service was very nice. There was plenty of parking and... More

Yesterday (Oct.27th) was such a gorgeous day my husband and I decided to walk Forbidden Drive in Fairmount Park. We had not been in 15 years even though it's not far from home. Since it was lunch time, the idea of parking and eating at the Valley Green Inn gave us our starting location. We requested a table on the... More

We attended a wedding party here on a cool wet October evening. 28 of us fit comfortably into a single room, but there were additional rooms for regular diners. The menu doesn't change often and features dishes in the $20-30 range. I enjoyed giant scallops on a bed of mashed potatoes. My wife had prime rib. Both were large servings.... More

This great restaurant on the Wissahickon trail is as rare as a five-tool baseball player. First, it is set in the midst of a a large and great hiking area. Fairmont Park is no ordinary park and for being in the heart of a big city, some of the trails and creeks rival wild places in far more remote areas.... More

My husband & I dined here for brunch on our one year anniversary. We arrived at our 11am reservation time and were promptly seated outside. Our waitress came over quite quickly after we were seated. I ordered a coffee and a mimosa, and my hubby got a beer & coffee. Coffee was nice & hot, and the mimosa was filled... More

Family came here for mothers day brunch in May. Followed it up with a hike. Everyone had the buffet and it was outstanding. The atmosphere is cozy. Waiters and waitresses were pleasant. The hike after was with our dog. The dog very much enjoyed the creek and the hiking trail. I would come to enjoy nature and a great meal.

You will drive into a valley and over a creek to a location you may not think would be part of a major city. Spend time walking along the water before or after you enjoy the restaurant. Quality and preparation of menu items are very good. Staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Atmosphere inside is traditional, elegant, quaint, and relaxed.... More

The first time I ate here was to do a food tasting with my (now) husband and in-laws. The next time, we were married here outside on a lovely day in May 2012. The Inn is full of character and I love the fact that it is part of Fairmont Park and open to everyone, which made our wedding even... More

We dined here for the first time last weekend. Having heard so much about it, our expectations could have been too high. I think the surroundings must be lovely in spring & summer, which would add to the experience. I get the charm of antiques and all that, but the interior seemed a little drab & dowdy. The food was...
