I apparently cannot get enough of the General Warren since I ate lunch here twice in one week. The first time I had a business lunch with a colleague. My lunch consisted of the Snapper Soup and the Lobster Pot Pie. When I got home, I told my wife about the Lobster Pot Pie. Guess what?! I had to bring her back to allow her to taste it for herself. I ordered the Lobster Pot Pie again because I liked it so much - flaky buttery crust, plenty of lobster chunks, and lots of fresh vegetables (peas, carrots, potatoes).

Both times I was fortunate to get a table next to the fireplace. It sure feels good to sit by a toasty fire when it is dreary, cold, and rainy outside.

The General Warren is still one of my favorite restaurants. It has been consistently good since I first ate there over 30 years ago.

One of the many beautiful inns and taverns in Chester County, the General Warren provides excellent service, ambiance and fine dining in a welcoming and historic location. Our meal was unrushed and superbly prepared. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and the wine list is spectacular. Highly recommended for an evening out. If you haven't been, go. If you have been, go back.

The staff at the GWI were spectacular. They did everything possible to make my MIL’s 70th birthday dinner a memorable one. The chef was extremely accommodating to my allergies and prepared a delicious meal that I enjoyed without worrying. Our party had ordered ahead for the chateaubriand, and it did not disappoint! We had several small children in our party and the staff was just as concerned they were enjoying their dining experience as much as the adults. The GWI is a true neighborhood gem!

Wrote review for Trip Advisor, same applies here. The dining experience was positive, my disappointment was the portion of crab cake or serving 2 crab cakes because for the value of entree was underwhelming. I walked away hungry and that shouldn't happen at a fine restaurant.

We went here for my boyfriend's birthday dinner.

The food was exquisite! And the staff was soooooo friendly lol and attentive.

We've been here before for another of my boyfriend's birthday and that is partly why we wanted to return. We had such a great experience last time.

At first we were seated on the front porch with a view of parking cars and the coat room. We asked to be moved and they happily obliged. The second seating was much more comfortable and appropriate for the prices we were paying. Food was good. Ambiance was old fashioned dining room style. Fire places were lit but I would not say it was anything to speak of. Our service was wonderful.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinner at GW. The atmosphere is cozy and historical. The beef wellington was so delicious - I can't wait to have a special occasion to eat there again. A little to pricey for us to make a very regular date for dinner.

Based on our past experience here, we felt let down since we always found the food was mostly outstanding. I had the beef Wellington with filet mignon and I found it tough. The broccoli was simply steamed, it cooled rapidly and was not special at all. My roasted potatoes were good, but not special. My wife had the lamb and said it was good, her pea puree and carrots were very good, as well as the sweet potato. The salad was very good. The dessert we chose was not special and the list for Valentines Day did not offer a true chocolate dessert.

The service and ambiance were outstanding and the noise level where we were seated was low.

We will try it again sometime and see if they or one of our menu choices had an off day.

For years I've wanted to dine at the General Warren Inn and my wife thought that it might be too stuffy! Much to her surprise, we have experienced a cozy and comfortable fine dining experience, delicious menu options and exceptional service. Experience the General Warren Inn for yourself, and don't hesitate to invite family and friends, for a most enjoyable evening out on the town.

We had a romantic Valentines (and wedding) Day dinner and it was a perfect ending to a perfect day! The wine choices were varied and eclectic. Our dinners, I had lamb and my bride had char, were both excellent. The General Warren is a tremendous place for a special occasion and wonderful food and drink!

My husband and I went here on Valentines Day.. The service was great however food was very disappointing. My husband ordered crab cake for $30.00 he received one small crab cake on a bed of chard and I got vegan dish which was ok but also small. Both dishes didnt even include a soup or salad for that price.. very disappointed with portion sizes..only went there because we had a gift certificate..next time better off going to bar having a few drinks and appetizers..

I took my wife to the General Warren for St. Valentine's Day. We both love their snapper soup, but the entire meal was very good. The service was professional.

Service was excellent. But food was not good. My husband couldn't even eat the crab cake, terrible taste. Salad was not crisp. Felt like it was made hours ago.
Will not return to restaurant.

We had a fabulous time from drinks at the bar to dinner at a fireside table. The service from Valet, Hostess, Bartender to Server was impeccable, the ambience divine, and the food fabulous!!! We had the amazing snapper soup, shared an incredible duck flatbread, mouth-watering filet mignons and decadent dessert (no sharing there)- and everything was 5 star! So glad we chose the General Warren Inne to celebrate Valentine's Day!!

We have never left a bad review before but this time it is necessary.
The service was comparable to a local diner and they have better service. The water was slopped into our glasses with a great deal of splashing. The service was rushed and very unpleasant and not very informative about specific questions.
The fish special was over cooked and very dry....couldn't cut through the surface with a knife. The beef Wellington was raw for a medium rare order. The accompaniments were steamed vegetables with no seasonings at all.
It is a beautiful, historic establishment of which we had eaten there many times and many years ago with a delicious experience. This was not the case this time.
It was also a place that our daughter had been considering for her wedding but she has decided against it.
We're hoping this helps the restaurant because it is such a disappointment in knowing what it used to be like. Hopefully some day, in the near future, it will be that way again. It is truly a waste of a gorgeous building with beautiful grounds and ambiance.
Very disappointing.
