Baseball hats and flip flops. I thought this was a nice restaurant. If people are going to dress that way, they should be seated in the bar, not the dinning room.

The General Warren has created an outstanding outdoor dining experience! The patio area is an incredible place to take your wife/girlfriend/SO. Lighting, music, great service, and excellent food combine to take Date Night to another level!

The ambiance and service were fantastic and what you come to expect from the General Warren. The food was delicious! The special menu was a little limiting but some accommodations were able to be made. Overall this is a fabulous place for a special occasion or just a nice night out.

I’ve been to The General Warren before and have always enjoyed myself and been impressed with the quality of food. Mother’s Day was an exception. It took 2.5 hours for them to get 3 drinks, 4 apps and 5 entrees to our table. Everyone in the room received their food before we did even when they were seated after us with similar sized parties. We thought maybe there was just a mix-up in the kitchen, so didn’t say anything. The Bloody Mary that arrived was so strong that it was undrinkable, so they brought me an additional cup of Bloody Mary mix to “water it down”. I order Bloody Mary’s at every brunch I attend, but this was literally the strongest drink I’ve ever had anywhere. When the food did finally come all of the meat was SUBSTANTIALLY OVERCOOKED. I ordered Beef Wellington medium; there was no pink anywhere in the meat and it was so charred under the pastry that it was inedible. The other two Wellington’s at the table were the same. I had a 2 year old with me bc it was Mother’s Day (btw he was wonderfully behaved and didn’t make a peep during the entire lunch), so sending food back and waiting another hour was absolutely not an option. I was truly disappointed with the quality and service we received this time, but I will probably still go back bc this bad experience was the exception and not the rule in my experience with this restaurant.

Drinks and goat cheese starter were great. My halibut was dry and the dessert I ordered said it was made with puff pastry but arrived in a bread like dough which I did not enjoy. When I replied with these comments when asked "how was everything" I was met with silence.

Recently went to General Warren Inn for a milestone birthday celebration. Our experience was memorable, with excellent service (thank you Karen!) and scruptious meals all around. This is especially notable since one of our party is a strict vegan. We couldn't have been more pleased with the evening. We will definitely be back soon!

Very pleasant atmosphere, every staff member was extremely pleasant, the luncheon choices were perfect and each meal looked and tasted good. Friends had gathered together to share family, neighbors and health stories. We were given all the time we needed with no pressure to order or leave. General Warren is an extremely pleasant environment to dine.

Amazing old world charm. Love this place and always stop when in the Malvern area. Not many places offer beef Wellington, and they do a fantastic job with it.

All parties made in house and delicious!

Great place for a date or special occasion. Haven’t dined outside, but the bar area on the patio in the back looks great too.

We enjoyed a cocktail in the bar prior to sitting down for a lovely meal. Great bottle of wine with our dinners. We started with a Caesar salad made table side, one of the few remaining restaurants to do that! I had the halibut which was delicious and schnitzel was very good too. Pleasant service and love the historic value of this beautiful building.

Service was over the top. I was disappointed in the food. It has always been the best in town. My lamb was a little tough and her sword fish a little dry. Not up to your normally spectacular gourmet level.

Our entire experience at The General Warren Inn was phenomenal. We've searched high and low for a wedding venue that feels right, needless to say we have been less than thrilled (for one reason or another) up until now. The Spring House Terrace's romantic ambiance, incredible food and impeccable service is remarkable. We can't wait for our upcoming wedding. Thank you Tim for being so hospitable at the drop of a hat!

The service is very good and the place is lively. The sauces were over-salted, the roasted potatoes were mush, and the beef wellington crust was way under-baked. Good wine selection, great dessert.

Thank you so much to the manager and waitress who helped me navigate my handicapped friend into the restaurant and seated, and then into my car after dinner. I hadn't been able to get my friend out of the house for months after she suffered a disastrous fall and I wasn't sure I could handle her difficulties. The staff at General Warren went beyond the call of duty in helping me. Aside from that, the meal was excellent: I loved the snapper soup and the beef Wellington; the latter has been a favorite of mine but is rarely offered in restaurants. My friend enjoyed the halibut. Again, my appreciation to the manager and waitress for their incredible kindness.

General Warren is lovely, the setting is perfect for a special dinner. The downstairs and side "sun room" are especially attractive. Unfortunately our server left a lot to be desired. Even before we had settled into our seats or looked at the menu, she was at the table asking what we wanted to drink. We asked for a few minutes to decide; when she returned she told us the specials and started to walk away until we called back to order drinks. Cocktails arrived one by one (for a party of 4), 3 drinks were so haphazardly put on the table they spilled on menu and table. Server did not notice or comment. On the upside, the food was good as usual. The trout entrée especially received positive comments. We all had been at General Warren on other occasions and will probably be back again and hope we get a different server.
