Gathering for 15-20 people in Montgomery County?
Looking for a central restaurant in Montgomery County between Pottstown, Lansdale, Warminster areas. I was considering Blue Bell area. We are planning a family get together of about 15-20 people where we could mingle and catch up while having drinks and snacks on a Saturday night. Any good suggestions? I'm at a loss!
The pub at Joseph Ambler inn, the tavern at William Penn Inn, or Iron Hill Brewery in North Wales. Each are casual places that could accommodate a party that size. I would make reservations.
Yes, the Wm Penn does have several private rooms upstairs of various sizes (we had mom's 80th there a few years back with about 25 people). Iron Hill can get a little crowded and loud on Saturday night in my experience.
In Blue Bell itself, there's always the Blue Bell Inn, which also has private rooms. It's been sold recently, so not sure what the situation is there currently. Also in Blue Bell, and certainly more casual, is Phil's Tavern, where I have also attended gatherings of 20 or so folks in a room upstairs.
You are right about the Blue Bell being another option. Two other options in the area are Spring House Tavern, and the Broad Axe (right next door to Phil's.). All of the ones mentioned are really old school kind of places.
Forest and Main which recently got written up in the Inq has a wonderful upstairs room with a huge table that could accomodate people. Downside is limited menu and limited bar (house made beer, pa wine and no liquor.) Deterra in Ambler might be another option.
