Yes it's still winter - but we need to dream about the Spring and even the start of summer...
Memorial Day weekend - a Sunday afternoon drive into the countryside (south of Coatesville) will take us back to The Whip for a 4th Annual Memorial Day meetup for the group. The Whip does not take reservations but they know we are coming and expect to be able to accommodate us. Please allow plenty of time for a relaxed and casual afternoon of dining.
The Whip’s authentic pub atmosphere is a casual and inviting place to try
traditional English dishes created from local, sustainable ingredients.
Bangers and Mash, Scotch Eggs, Welsh Rarebit and Sticky Toffee Pudding are
just a few of the delectable offerings that have earned rave reviews and a
loyal following among British expatriates and English-fare converts.
Woven into the mix are American favorites, evolving seasonally using the
highest quality produce, beef and lamb, cheeses and cream from Chester and
Lancaster Counties. One visit to The Whip and you'll know why so many locals
covet it and why hundreds of visitors travel miles to experience it.
It is 'quite' a drive into the countryside and not one to be undertaken in the dark. Here is a link to the venues directions http://www.thewhiptavern.com/twt_directions.html
"Jolly good, this 'cool interpretation of an old English pub' will
'put a smile on your face' and sate any 'cravings for bangers and mash',
'amazing fish 'n' chips' or 'fantastic' lagers and bitters...'pubby and clubby' 'treasure' "
"This is not just an English-style pub. It's better. " (http://www.nypost.com/seven/01292008/entertainment/travel/hit_list_781946.htm)
