A gastro pub with an old English vibe ( almost Dickensian) . Good range of craft beers, and great pub style food. The rabbit pie is especially delicious! There is a restaurant upstairs but we ate in the bar - cozy and buzzy atmosphere.

Great, cozy spot for a mid-afternoon beer. Being tucked away in the corner while enjoying the cask flight was a great way to admire all the intricate decor of the place. I love cozy pubs in London and this was a great reminder of my...More

I would suggest a phone call to the restaurant as well; while I was just recently there and recall seeing a few options for folks with food specific needs, I don't recall enough of the menu to advise you safely.

Parking in Philly is a nightmare, as in any other big city. Try the BestParking app or website. You can look and see what public garages there are near the restaurant. Be aware that city traffic will be tough - you probably... More

Susan, give the restaurant a call. They serve alcohol, not a BYOB place. They have many unique spaces for dining
