The Inn parking goes all the back on the property when it is crowded. The choice of the Inn or Four Dogs is really in the type of evening you have planned. The Inn is an excellent place to sit and have a great conversation with your party. The menu is the same at both places - but there is... More

We go here often, and I mean the Inn and not the Four Dogs. The food is the same but the ambience of the Inn is special. The chef is among the very best in the area. Onion soup and special soups are fabulous. Calamari Parmesan are not to be missed. Daily fish and meat specials are usually so good... More

We have recently moved to West Chester and have had lunch several times at the Four Dogs Tavern (which is the bar/restaurant opposite the Marshalton Inn). It reminds me of an English village pub, historic, romantic and full of atmosphere. It has a real bar (with only two very unobtrusive TV screens), a fireplace and real wood floors. The food... More

Beautiful bar area with cozy tables for 2 (my favorite seating area). There is also front porch dining as well as several smaller room dining areas. A variety of atmospheres to choose from for a romantic evening for two to large family celebrations.

Had a great birthday dinner on the wide front porch overlooking the little village of Marshallton. Food was amazing with beautiful presentation and superb service.

We go to The Inn and The Four Dogs often. Lovely settings. Outdoor dining is some of the nicest in Chester County. Porch of the Inn is open Thursday thru Sunday. Outdoor seating at The Four Dogs is open every day. Good variety of foods. They have delicious soups, meal size appetizers, large salads and good entres. Their lemon ice... More

My friend and I recently visited the Marshalton Inn, a place I had heard about for years and driven by, but never went in. The Marshalton Inn, in appearance, is a classy place, but the menu doesn't reflect that class. The menu better suits the 4 Dogs Tavern across the parking lot, which has the same owner and same kitchen.... More

We had a small dinner party for New Year's Eve in one of the upstairs rooms. A cozy fireplace and the most awesome waitress ever topped off a great meal. Best sushi grade tuna. Prices reasonable great atmosphere.

The Four Dogs Cafe at the Marshalton Inn has an excellent beer list with multiple draft offerings. The kitchen does a good job and the patio setting creates a very pleasant ambience to enjoy it all.

We had dinner here last Saturday night. The Marshalton Inn is located in a charming little hamlet full of homes from the 1700's. The Inn itself is a large handsome building dating from the 1790's. It has very comfortable looking rooms inside with white tablecloths and comfortable sitting. You can all sit outside in the back or on the front... More
