Foursquare Tips

  • Keep calm and carry on at this kitsch-filled English pub near Rittenhouse Square. Head upstairs and check out the "dog room."
  • Stephen Starr's most exciting restaurant. From cured salmon to the best duck liver mousse in town... You cask beer drinkers will be very happy with the drink selection, too. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Of all the British pubs in this city full of British pubs, the Dandelion is the one that hits closest to home for expat royalists and those who love them.
  • Order the A-list fish and chips dish which starred on The Best Thing I Ever Ate TV show.
  • Go for oysters and English staples, all of which will make you question British grub's bad rap.
  • Proof that pub fare is more than a fad here: the fish-and-chips, which achieves the pinnacle of moistness and flavor when its crust puffs up to encase the cod, letting the steam work its magic.
  • Great pimms cup
  • Stephen Starr does it again, and this time with a British inspired pub. This gastropub knows makes delicious Cumberland Sausages with Mashed Potato and Onion Gravy and Beer-battered Fish and Chips.
  • Comfy leather chairs face the upstairs fireplace. Or linger over an Imperial pint by the downstairs fire.
  • Best meal in Philly! Fancy pub fare in a lovely atmosphere (it used to be two residences) on multiple levels--literally!
  • Weinhenstephaner Heiffeweissen from the oldest brewery (founded circa 1040) plus $4 deviled eggs wrap up a night oh so well.
  • Try the Pimm's Cup
  • Deviled egg and the lamb shepherd pie is Yummy!!!
  • The ketchup is awesome
  • So pretty.
  • For brunch, order the beet cured salmon (trust me) and the poached egg with bubble & squeak. If there's a wait, head to the top floor bar and scope a seat instead.
  • The burger is excellent
  • This is a wonderful place for drinks and dinner. I would highly recommend the duck and chicken liver parfait - amazing. The atmosphere and decor are great as well. This place is a keeper.
  • The chicken-duck liver parfait is their signature dish. It's the perfect balance of sophistication, interest, and comfort. If you're not eating it, you're doing something wrong.
  • The Eggs Benedict is to die for!
