We have dinner at Bowman's very often. The food and the service are always outstanding! There is generally a band in the evening - music is always enjoyable as well-

We decided to have dinner before walking around Peddler's Village for the Christmas lights. This was our first time at Bowman's Tavern and we enjoyed it. We'll be back when we're in the area.

Met friends for lunch. Everything was great......service, food and ambiance. The food came out super quick. We all ordered different sandwiches and thoroughly enjoyed them. Very tasty. Our server was very pleasant and efficient and did not rush us at all. The young lady who seated us when we arrived welcomed us warmly. Great dining spot, indeed!

We had a reservation in the dining room but decided to dine in the lounge on top of the big piano, behind which the talented singer and multi-instrumentalist Lorenzo was performing. We really enjoyed the music - mostly Christmas songs - and the food and service was excellent. Third time there - always very good.

Dinner and a show on a Thursday night! We came to see some live jazz (and an intense craving for a burger). Neither disappointed! Our server was friendly and checked in without it being overkill. Our food and drinks came out quickly and were delicious.

Good food and drinks are to be found at this nice New Hope staple. Delicious Veal Chops were the special the fine evening we were in attendance. The star of the show here is The Great American Songbook, offered live on selected evenings .
