Featuring three separate distinct areas, dining at the William Penn Inn has been a tradition for over 300 years. Beautifully appointed rooms, cordial and knowledgeable servers and exquisite Menu Selections combine to offer you a most memorable experience. Whether a romantic dinner, a family celebration or “just because”, we truly are the “Inn”-place to dine.

The Monet dining room is beautifully appointed with replicas of Monet paintings and murals in an elegant, open setting featuring live harp music and a Prix Fixe complete three course dinner. Continental/American cuisine offers you a well-balanced variety of appetizers, entrées and tempting desserts. Dinner Additions and seasonal “Inn”-made desserts are offered 7 days a week. Open for Lunch Monday – Saturday and Dinner Monday – Sunday the Monet dining room is a perennial favorite of our guests.

The prestigious Commonwealth Club, located on the second floor, is our premiere dining area offering quiet, intimate fine-dining as well as semi-private areas for parties from four to forty guests. European cuisine, impeccable service and attention to detail ensure you an incomparable dining experience. A six-course Gourmet Dinner is offered exclusively in the Commonwealth Club twice a year and is truly an Epicurean Adventure. Dining is enhanced by classical music provided by our harpist on Saturday evenings. The Commonwealth Club is open for Lunch Monday – Saturday and for Dinner Monday – Sunday.

Penn’s Tavern is a return to relaxed, country dining in the oldest continuously operated tavern in Pennsylvania and is open Thursday – Saturday for Dinner and Sunday for an award-winning Sunday Brunch. On Thursday evenings the Tavern hosts a bountiful, all-inclusive Roasted Sirloin and Seafood Dinner Buffet.
