Great meeting place for friends ....and nice cozy bar that is usually packed. Music also ...artsy type people gather here. Drinks a bit expensive but you are paying for ambience.

My husband and I both had the Fish and Chips and they were excellent. We plan on going back again when we return to New Hope. They have a delightful menu. The other patrons dishes also looked so appetizing.

We were out for a ride on a pretty Summer Sunday and around lunchtime stopped at Bowman's Tavern, a long time favorite. My wife ordered the roast beef sandwich and I ordered my favorite standby, the Reuben. Her sandwich was great - I almost sent...More

They have veggies and other stuff that's gluten free. I would call asap and see if you can get in. The place is rather large and has outside seating.
