Victorian charm, discreet and professional service with all the
modern hotel amenities.

The history of General Lafayette Inn & Brewery goes back to 1732. The inn was then called "Three Tuns" and has always served as a place where travelers could stop and refresh themselves. 

Only 15 minutes from Philadelphia.

The Inn is also the site of the Battle of Barren Hill, where General Lafayette, his men and 50 Indians held off and finally escaped capture by a much larger English force.

Experience fine dining in our restaurant. Relax with a handcrafted ale in our tavern. Listen to well rendered tunes by local musicians in the late evening.

Our Restaurant

Fine dining, rough-hewn beams, wall sconces, cozy nooks and a huge wood-burning fireplace. Built in 1732, the Inn has operated continuously as a hotel and restaurant. Copies of rare prints of the original inhabitants, the Lenni-Lenape Indians, hang on the walls. The dining room opens into a beautiful cobblestone patio.

The food is inspired by Southern and Native American recipes. Generous portions; wholesome and delicious. The owners beleive that natural is best. All of the water used in the beer making and the restaurant is charcoal filtered. All ingredients are fresh--from the hops and grains for the beer to the vegetables and other ingredients in the entrees. The barroom has at least seven brewed-on-site beers always on tap; currently including our Mead Ale, aged 6 months (those who prefer wine will love it!). Fine wines, single malt scotches, and mixed drinks are also available.

The Inn has six working fireplaces and many rooms; each being a special experience.
The rooms may be reserved for private parties.

All of our dining rooms are non-smoking.
