Excellent fare. Crab Cake, Leg of Lamb, fillet Mignon, Lobster Bisque outstanding. Service was attentive but not invasive.

During the pandemic, there were only six tables in a heated tent on the patio, so it was a fortunate reservation we were able to make.

The owner takes pride in his restaurant and his highly trained staff. He came around to the tables and spoke with us in a friendly manner. I highly recommend this restaurant!

It is the middle of February but too cold, sitting on cold metal chairs, food got cold quickly, feet were freezing, we took extra blankets and still too cold. Service was lukewarm. Not many people to serve but servers have to walk so far to the patio to deliver the service was slow. Seemed understaffed. Food is good.

Wonderful special occasion restaurant. Fabulous food, great service, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. Very comfortable inside the tent. Every table has a heater. In fact I had to ask to turn it down. Also provided lap blankets. It’s pricey so would save for special treat.

Our dinner for 4 was absolutely delicious, from appetizers to dessert. We were seated outside,in January, under a tent with heat lamps and we’re quite comfortable. We look forward to the end of the pandemic restrictions so that we can visit next time inside the Inn.

Dined at Kimberton Inn for New Years Eve. Currently, only outside dining is open in PA. Their tent was lovely. Plenty of space between tables. Even with openings on both sides to keep airflow going, it was warm and cozy enough that we were able to take off our coats. Service was excellent as was the food. We have never had a bad meal at Kimberton Inn and this was no exception. They are making the best of a tough situation that all restaurants are facing and they are doing a very good job at it!

We had a lovely meal at the Kimberton inn. Service was absolutely outstanding. Menu was varied . The meal was paced perfectly. It’s a nice place so I expect to pay a premium price. But $30 for a plate of spaghetti is pushing it. For a few dollars more I had a delicious duck dinner. Prices just seemed a little out of whack for some things However, this would not stop me from returning to the Kimberton

We dined at the Kimberton Inn for our six year anniversary this past weekend. The Inn is gorgeous - it was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had a huge fireplace that I loved. I had a great cocktail (French 75) and the scallops and risotto appetizers for my dinner, which were both good and very filling. The risotto was a little dry but the scallops were cooked perfectly and were quite tasty. I also loved my chocolate Orange torte with vanilla ice cream, which was a substitute to the chocolate buttercream sandwich I really wanted. But it made due nicely. Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience and would come back. My only wish is that the bread didn’t cost but I guess it is what it is. I’d recommend dining here - it’s kinda neat that the Kimberton Inn was founded so long ago and is still standing.

This is pretty much the only place that life feels the same right now for me in COVID in that the owner and team keep everyone very separated and yet treat you like gold. The ambiance is cozy and yet, with COVID safe. For an hour - you can forget what's going on in the world, enjoy amazing food, and relax in front of a fire. Highly recommend.

The lamb chops were delicious! Cooked to order with the perfect balance of accompaniments. However, at this price point should diners really have to pay $6 for a small basket of bread and rolls with their meal? And not even a salad with your entree UNLESS you want to pay another $12 or so...The food and service were excellent, but overall I'd say over priced.

Jeff and his team did an outstanding job with a high bar---as come to be expected over these many years. While the atmosphere was subdued due to the seating requirements: it afforded a very quiet and intimate setting. Thanks for putting the icing on our special day.

Change in menu not that appealing. Food was good but Not great. As a long-standing customer disappointed. They even charge for bread & butter to be brought to the table. Ridiculous! Portions smaller, prices slightly higher. Not sure if this is a way to recover from Covid shut down but charging for bread and butter....Really!

We did enjoy our dinner. My husbands dinner was very well prepared.
I had the mushroom soup, which was delicious. I had also ordered the Australian lamb which I was very excited for. But unfortunately it was overcooked and very chewy.
Hoping the next time is better.

Kimberton Inn is a local favorite! We held our rehearsal dinner at the restaurant in 2012 and it has become tradition to celebrate our anniversary there as well. The food is always spot on and there is a wonderful cocktail and wine list to choose from.
