In a pastoral Bucks community, the confluence of past, present and future synthesizes into affable modern hospitality that lures patrons from near and far. Owned and operated by the Dale family since 1959, the centuries-old character of Spinnerstown Hotel is continually updated and enhanced with such amenities as the Spinny Bottle Shop – amply stocked with beer and wine to-go – and a spacious extended season barn-roofed heated deck. A newly constructed coffee bar café features French presses, pour overs, espresso made with an Italian machine, nitro-brewed coffee and other coffee-and-alcoholic-beverage combinations. Whether savoring an all-day menu of casual and fine fare, plus outstanding libations, at the warmly welcoming bar and booth-lined tavern or relaxing in the rustically refined dining room, the Spinnerstown experience always starts with a friendly greeting, setting a congenial tone for a food-and-drink respite.
A solid selection of starters, handhelds –
such as signature Smoked Pig Sandwich – beloved Irish Onion Soup and du jour specialties, and salads are offered along with seasonally adapted entrées like Roasted Salmon topped with house-made red onion relish (find the recipe for this condiment at lehighvalleygoodtaste.com), Stout Braised Short Ribs presented with locally prepared pierogies, and authentic Maryland Crab Cakes. (Executive Chef Spencer Crawford obtained the traditional recipe from a venerable native of that region.) The chef also upholds the restaurant’s tradition of sourcing from area farms when possible.
A reputation for excellent spirits is earned with 18 rotating taps and 200 varieties of bottled and canned beers, a Wine Spectator award-winning wine list, and specialty cocktails like the intriguing Smoke Show Old Fashioned (see recipe pg. 82). Budding bourbon aficionados may sample 160 types of top-notch options chosen by bar manager – and bourbon enthusiast – Steve Trampe. While sipping and feasting, guests may peruse a house beverage program guidebook that includes details on beer styles and terminology –
a user-friendly education for those thirsting
