Best kept secret in Chester County! Came across this place after googling Irish/gastropub food for a place to go on st patricks day. Nestled in the horse farms of Chester county, this little cottage is hands down a perfect place to go if looking for authentic English food. No reservations are accepted, they are closed on Tuesday but on a positive note the are BYOB! If you dont bring your own, have no fear. They have a wide selection of draft and bottled beers. My favorite is a snakebite- Half Yager Half Cider. They have limited parking so I would get there early around 5 or later around 9ish. Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff, affordable fresh dishes. Lots of tv’s to watch soccer, horse racing or any local sports on. I have been to the Whip Tavern about 5 times- each time I am very pleased with the service and my meal.
Sneak peak of the menu!
My favorite appetizer- Welsh Rarebit…Melted irish cheeses with fresh toasted bread for dipping! Who doesn’t love melted cheese!!
Scotch Egg- Yes I know it does look very odd but the flavor is so distinct and delicious! Fried sausage wrapped in a hard boiled egg!
My dinner- flakey, buttery, melt in your mouth fish and chips! The fish is fresh, not too overly fried or soggy. And Yes they make there own steak fries! 🙂
