Awesome experience

Food was great. Service pleasant. This restaurant welcomed hometown carolers while we were dining, making it fun while we were eating.

We stopped in prior to a visit to Longwood Gardens for late lunch. The dining room had nice ambience. The building was old and historical, which we love. The only other group was a party of 8-10 in the room. It was not crowded due to the hour, and that was ok. What wasn't ok was how s-l-o-w service was.... More

We were enchanted by the lovely "living room" ambiance as we dined next to the fireplace. After asking for gluten free food, I was advised that most of their entrees were gluten free. I enjoyed crabcakes with a lobster sauce - something that I haven't had in years. How wonderful for a restaurant to be able to accommodate ll the... More

Have been visiting this area for the last few years and never been in this place. Was cautious when entered on a cold Monday lunchtime in November as I was the only person in the place but it soon filled up. It is a nice place in a nice location with a good and quality menu but its all about... More

Great lunch, super fresh food. Absolutely delicious soup and sandwich, kind, attentive service that made our day. Cozy atmosphere with a nice selection of dishes. The pub was great for lunch, but there was a lovely dining room that we'd love to try for dinner.

Decided to have a quick lunch here. Have lived in the area for 13 years and never been - I now know why. Really has a lot of potential and could really compete with other taverns in the area. Don't think they put effort into it. Food was fine - service was pleasant but very slow - considering there were... More

My wife and I made evening reservations to have Thanksgiving Dinner after a full day at Longwood Gardens. There are limited places to go for a Thanksgiving Dinner. We are glad we found the Kennett Square Inn over the Internet. Our dinners were delicious and quite filling. There were many items on the menu but we wanted turkey and all... More

Met a great friend here for a delicious lunch! Service is wonderful as is the ambiance. I had a scallop dish and she had a cheeseburger. Both were wonderfully prepared and presented.

Somewhat disappointed in the food; expected more quality from this well established restaurant. Waitstaff was fine, no problem there. We dined on the porch as it was a lovely day but that was a mistake because the street noises and sounds of traffic interfered with conversation. Will not return.

Went here for an anniversary dinner.nice atmosphere, the food was average, nothing special. The mushroom soup was very rich, but not the best I have had. I had the petite filet which was overcooked and very petite. It was served with mashed potatoes - they were the best part of the meal and sautéed squash. Spouse had angel hair pasta... More
