Great crab cakes. A place that impresses people. Good service. Never had a bad meal. Can be expensive though. Outdoor dining in doing and fall is wonderful.

My husband and I went with another couple, all of us first-time visitors, and everyone enjoyed the meal. We appreciated the thoughtful, attentive service and menu advice from our very professional server. Caesar salad, prepared tableside, was well received by all, and three of us tried the turtle soup and very much liked it. My beef Wellington was expertly prepared.... More

This is a beautiful colonial restaurant, set quietly in woodland just a couple minutes off of busy Route 30. The inn's web page says the place has been serving since 1745, a remarkable accomplishment. At a recent luncheon here, our party was greeted warmly and made to feel welcome and at home. Our charming server couldn't have been nicer or... More

The General Warren is consistently very good, with a warm and historic atmosphere. Sitting close to the fireplace is especially nice in the winter time, and the enclosed porch is good anytime of the year. While the food may not be the most innovative, it is always good.

We had a team dinner here and I thought it was excellent. Try the snapping turtle soup. It was the first time I had ever tried turtle soup and it was fantastic! The main courses were also very good. Try the pastry wrapped fillet.

The General Warren remains one of Chester County's finest and most historic restaurants. The scallops are to die for, but really, everything is first-rate. Always consider the specials. And in the cold weather, a crackling fire (real wood, not gas!) awaits in two rooms. Proprietor Patrick Byrne always provides a gracious welcome.

My fiancé and I enjoy the GWI often, so when faced with the decision of where to have our rehearsal dinner, we immediately decided the general warren inne would be perfect! We were looking for a classy venue with outstanding food and they exceeded our expectations. Patrick was phenomenal to work with and went beyond to make sure everything was... More

I had always heard good things about this restaurant but tonight was the Worst dinner EVER.... bar-none. Appetizers cold (stuffed mushrooms stone cold and when I bit into it, the sausage was pink inside), soup cold (had to send it back 3 times to get it hot, filet barely warm, asparagus cold, just the absolute worst dining experience is ever...

My husband and I ate here last year and it was amazing. We returned last week and it was just as wonderful. We have to occasionally travel to Pennsylvania for family and it looks like our new routine is to reward ourselves with a night out at The General Warren Inne. We both enjoy a good steak. I had the... More

My family (2 adult daughters from NYC) have lived in the Malvern area for 25+ years and have not gone to General Warren Inne. Sometimes the treasures nearby are forgotten. We went recently for a Christmas holiday dinner and were absolutely delighted with the complete experience. Valet parking, attentive servers with GW uniforms, great holiday decorations and superb menu and... More
