“Atmosphere with good food at reasonable prices near town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

This restaurant is a short drive outside of the central part of New Hope, PA. The only downsides is that since it is fairly popular for dinner on the weekend, there is often a wait for tables; and parking is a bit tight (the free valet service does help alleviate that a bit now). On the other hand, lunch has always been walk right in anytime we have tried it - a great plus compared to most of the places in town.

We dine here regularly with friends and have always had consistently good food. The atmosphere is always warm and inviting and makes for a very pleasant dining experience.

“Outstanding Casual Dining Tavern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

If you are looking for an outstanding restaurant look no further. The food is excellent. Waitresses are friendly and serves your every need. Casual Dining atmosphere makes this stop worth while. Stopped by on a Saturday evening for dinner and to my surprise they even had valet parking. Our food was served piping hot and delicious. You won't be sorry if you stop in.
Highly recommend!

Scott and Roy of Pineapple Hill B&B in New Hope, PA recommended Bowman's Tavern. The food was excellent, the wine pours generous and our server was engaging and charming.

“Good casual friendly tavern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

No pretention here - just good food, good drinks and friendly staff on a beautiful Rt. 32, not far from New Hope, PA. Went here with my sisters to celebrate a birthday. Delicious mimosa drinks, had delicious calamari sauteed, and placed over tasty greens for my GF needs. My sisters loved their giant sandwiches which they said were delicious.
