Enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner on the patio-it was the perfect day to be outside. Service was pleasant and attentive-we arrived about 30 min prior to the dinner menu coming out. Our server was really great about confirming that there would be a slight delay...More

The Whip is probably my favorite place in the area. Nestled in horse country with authentic British charm. Delicious food and friendly service.. Welsh rarebit, scotch eggs, and sticky toffee pudding are just a few favorites..

Love The Whip! Cozy pub atmosphere, great service, delicious food! Have been several times and always enjoy the visit. Love Welsh Rarebit. Scotch egg is tasty and different than most pub fare. Sticky toffee pudding is the star of the show!

I ordered their quiche for the day special. Thought the concept was interesting and I was right. Give it a try sometime.

The food was great, loved the rarebit appetizerand the Shepard's Pie.with a pint of your favorite English ale or Guennis Stoudt.Prices are a little high but for a good English meal it was worth it.

The Whip is in the Pennsylvania country side. From the outside it looks very plain. Your first notice is valley parking is provided (& needed). On the inside it will be crowded with a long bar filled with locals. Looks like an Irish Tavern. The...More

I hate to say it as this used to be one of our favorite places to eat. The first thing you will notice is the mandatory valet parking on Friday and Saturday night, even though you can see the spot a few feet away you...More

If you like British food and something different you will like it. It is pricey but they put out some good food. They have special Prime Rib nights that they are known for. The elaborate bar they have is directly from England. Definitely feels like...More

I think you can. The food was good and not priced too bad. But watch the drinks. I think they charge $7 a beer
