What a surprise. This tavern has a very creative chef who is not only into bar food. We chose off the special menu on Monday evening. Since it was 5:15 we got the early bird price which at $12.99 was a bargain. We started off with a salad for me and soup for my husband. He chose the lasagna soup... More

This small town tavern/restaurant has some visual appeal as an old-school, charming family pub (vs. a modern chain) but is a poor excuse for an adequate eatery. The menu is basic slop- meatloaf, wings, nachos, etc., that sells well in this working class neighborhood, but is far removed from the thoughtful, modern cuisine that many brew pubs and innovative eateries...

The Sumney is a good place to meet friends or take the family for a meal. Their prices are moderate and the food is always delicious.

Arrived in Lansdale for a brief trip and found a lot of the restaurants were closed due to the hour. I figured worst case I could get a burger in this tavern but I was wrong. The menu was a pleasant surprise and the bartender was very friendly and helpful. He steered us to the Tomato Crown Salad which was... More

I did a bad review back in 2014 after the third time of not so good food or service. However, two years later (tonight) my husband and I decide to give the sumney another chance. Seems like they changed things a bit. All around a lot better experience. My husband got shepherds pie and I got a Cobb salad which... More

This one actually surprised me. My wife told me about this restaurant after she had attended some some after work and retirement functions at this restaurant. We found ourselves passing the tavern on a Saturday evening and i noted they had a sign outside that informed you they still had immediate seating. I stopped and in we went. We were... More

Not a real big place but has a cozy older bar with some of the friendliest bartenders you'll ever meet. Food is basic bar stuff at reasonable prices and nice sized portions Have several dinner specials nightly that I have never tried but in reality----this doesn't strike me as a surf & turf place. I'd say stick with burgers &... More

This is a nice family style Resteraunt with an Irish/American blend of food and beer. The Shepard pie is great as is their fish and chips.
