Ended up at William Penn Inn as a result of a gift certificate and have added to the list of favorite places to dine. The atmosphere is cordial but not overly formal. Received a nice desert to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Very enjoyable.

By far, this is the classiest restaurant in the North Penn area. Eat in the Commonwealth Club on the second floor and you will be treated with exquisite service while enjoying a first class meal.
