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

We had our wedding reception here many moons ago, and we went back for our anniversary dinner this week. While it all looks the same, we were Very disappointed in the menu. Very. Fish and chips does NOT fit with the more refined decor of the beautiful historic house. Know that I love the Four Dogs, which is on the... More

Remember when tacky restaurants used to charge 50 cents extra for blue cheese dressing? This restaurant brings back those memories by charging $1.50 if two diners share a large salad prior to the entree. This is out of step with the overall quality of the food, service, and atmosphere of this upscale place. Several salads were offered in a choice... More

Dine by firelight in an authentic colonial inn. Outdoor seating in warm weather. Outdoor fire with rocking chairs and blankets. Terrific bar. Great food. Attentive and friendly staff led by the extraordinary Apple! Close enough to walk to ... if you happen to live in our house.
