A couple of Chester County spots I never hear about

Orangery in Thorndale. Looks like a private home, one seating a day, you get whatever they serve. I don't mind the model, but I have not heard of anyone going. Any experience or views from CH?
Same question for Yellow Springs Inn in Chester Springs? Menu seems amazingly expensive for the area. I don't see anyone talking about it, so I have to really wonder if prices are justified.
In either case, I would love to hear CH views and experiences.
Yellow Springs has been around forever. I have been there for business meetings and found the food to be good, and the facilities adequate. The quality really varies depending on who the chef is. I am not sure if they are emphasizing their public restaurant more or the site for business meetings, weddings and other events. Surprisingly it is BYOB. I am not sure if it has changed hands over the years. I was last there about ten years ago. http://www.yellowspringscatering.com/...
Isn't it interesting that we haven't heard anything about the Orangery here on CH? I peeked at the menus, which look nice, but without seeing plating/presentation it's hard to say if it's overpriced. The menu at Yellow Springs -- wow -- IMHO that really is pricey for Chester County! It'd be pricey for Philly.
And one other observation from the photos on the Yellow Springs Inn website -- the decor kind of creeps me out. Just my opinion.
