On a recent trip through the east coast, we made a stop in Chester County. I did not have any expectations of this stop and was blown away by the surroundings. I was equally impressed with the Whip Tavern. Our party of 9 managed to sample much of the menu. Each appetizer was delicious and our entrees ranged from Shepherd's Pie (My choice) to Lamb Shanks. Everyone left happy. Don't think you can make a bad decision here! Enjoy!

Perfect gastropub if you're near the area - friendly staff, fantastic selection of drinks and the menu is fresh, local and delicious. The daily specials are the highlight, and if you visit during the summer enjoy a drink or your meal on the deck.

The Whip is gold at the end of a rainbow of Chester County horse country. Who would expect to find authentic English pub food stationed somewhere between Coatesville, Cochranville and Kennett Square?

At The Whip I learned that black and white puddings are breakfast sausage, but Yorkshire pudding is a kind of puff pastry best enjoyed with roast beef. I learned that Scotch eggs are deep fried and delicious. And I learned that what Cork and Cap (Lancaster, Pa.) calls rarebit is more like melted Velveeta.

The Whip is not pretentious. It is a pub. You can get $2 pints and games on TV.

But during the summer you can enjoy a mouthwatering brunch beneath the trees by Doe Run. And in the winter the fireplace, dark wood and beer-only bar are everything you need to make cold feel like a charming counterpoint to your cozy cosmopolitan life.

We have been going to the Whip for years-the food is outstanding, and locally sourced as much as possible. Chef Wyatt and his entire staff do a wonderful job. The servers and managers are always friendly. The local and English beer selection is great.

From the appetizer the House Cured Gravlax to the weekend special Beef Wellington it was Devine. The waitress was not trained well but she was nice. A little disappointing was that there is only beer served and cider. I would like wine and spirits.
