Four of us had areservation there early on a Saturday evening. Food was slow to arrive and all entrees arrived overdone- likely held too long in the kitchen before serving.
Plating and chef's presentation was very good.
The noise from a large wedding party who congregated near the entrance penetrated the bar and all the dining areas. Their loud chatter was such that normal conversation at our table was not possible. Thankfully, they finally cleared part way through our meal.
I love the General Warren Inne, have dined there many times and certainly will go back, but this experience was disappointing.

I can't say enough good things about General Warren. The ambience, the food, the service. No one wanted to pull their cell phones out (for a change)! Fine dining is a dying breed. There is no attention to detail anymore as most restaurants prefer to remain fiscally prudent. But the General is much more concerned about making their patrons happy and their dining experience memorable. A gem in Malvern! 😊

We had a lovely time at the General Warren Inn and enjoyed the very delicious filet/salmon. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Our server Kim was friendly and efficient. She offered to take our picture and even had Happy Anniversary written on the serving plate of our dessert. We recommend this restaurant, especially if you let them know you are celebrating.

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.

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.
