The History of the William Penn Inn



A Gwynedd Public House

The charming country inn where you dine today has roots that extend back to the origins of the country hospitality in "Penn's Woods," the colony founded by English Quaker William Penn. Around 1700, Governor William Penn and his 22-year-old daughter, Letitia, were made welcome when they rode up from Philadelphia to visit and worship with Gwynedd Friends for a few days. A public house was established on that site in 1714, providing hearty food, refreshing drink and comfortable lodging that made travel possible between Penn's "greene country towne" of Philadelphia and the many smaller towns and hamlets scattered north and west of the city.

The William Penn Inn sits on part of a tract of 1,034 acres, patented to Robert ap Evan – Robert, son of Evan. Robert is thought to be the brother of Thomas Evans, who owned a barked log cabin along the native Americans’ well-traveled Maxatawney Trail (later known as Sumneytown Pike), near the Gwynedd Friends (Quakers) meetinghouse.

Robert Evans passed the property on to Jesse Evans and in 1755 the property passed out of the family to George Maris. George’s son, Jesse, sold the property to David Acuff in 1818. It was David Acuff who, in 1827 finally secured a license to operate the inn as a formal tavern. The Acuffs operated the inn for many years, and were responsible for naming the tavern the “William Penn Hotel”, honoring its historic visitor and founder of Pennsylvania. Photographs from that time period show a simple, two-story stone hotel still retaining its 18th century style.



Revitalizing an Inn for the Era

Even though new forms of travel helped make the old public houses unnecessary, the William Penn Inn was one of the new area hostels to remain vital. On January 1st, 1900, Algernon “Jerry” Yothers leased the inn from the Acuff estate and undertook extensive improvements. He built well-lit and well-ventilated stables that, according to newspaper articles of the time, boasted of “pure artesian well water and electrical lights.” He raised the roof for a third story and constructed a two-story porch and central portico, dramatically changing the face of the tavern that looked onto State Road.

Nicholas de Wilde bought the inn in 1920, reopening it in 1924 with a gala celebration. From his overseas travels, de Wilde brought back fervor for the service and surroundings offered in London’s gentleman’s clubs. Heave silver serving pieces from luxury ocean liners and European-trained professionals became the foundation from his new restaurant. It was deWilde who collected and framed many of the old photos and mementos that are still displayed today.

The Kubach family took over the inn’s operation in 1977 and later sold it to Peter R. Friedrich, who has been the proud owner and proprietor since 1981. With his European training and background, he has brought the renowned landmark into the 21st century as the oldest continuously operated country inn in Pennsylvania. We remain dedicated to our tradition of hospitality, offering superlative food, service and lodging in a relaxed and cordial setting. You are invited to wander through our historic site and partake of the hospitality that has become our hallmark.

We had considered several venues for our wedding, but once we met with Monica, we knew that The William Penn Inn was the correct choice for us. From the time we met until the day after the wedding, Monica and Sue were on top of all the little details and provided us with exceptional service! The Carriage Room was used for both the cocktail hour and reception. They did a wonderful job partitioning the room off for the cocktail hour and then opening it all up for our reception. The food and service throughout the evening were outstanding! We also had our service in the beautiful outside garden. The folks at the William Penn Inn certainly met and exceeded all of our expectations and provided us with a wonderful venue filled with many good memories.

Finally got around to writing a review for our July 5th wedding reception at William Penn Inn. We have nothing but great things to say... From the staff to the food it was all amazing. All of our guests kept saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to. We were excited to add on some packages the week of the wedding since we didn't meet our quota. We added the chocolate fountain, Mac and cheese bar and the Philly food stations. Everyone loved them...my husband and I were so busy mingling that we didn't get a chance to eat all that food. So we're sad about that, but we're happy everyone enjoyed them.
We had a few unique things to add at our reception..I dropped all that stuff off a few days before and gave Brian the instructions for each thing. Everything was set up exactly how we wanted it.
The Bridal suite was very nice and offered us a nice break before we went into the reception.

Can not say enough great things about WPI!

We had our 4th of July wedding ceremony and reception at the William Penn Inn. The people (Brian, Monica, Shelly, Kate, Jessica), the food, the flowers from the flower shop that Kate suggested and arranged, and cake from the bakery were outstanding. When I first saw the beautiful ballroom set up with all our personal touches with that stunning chandelier, I was happy beyond words at how beautiful everything was. Our venue coordinator Jessica was fantastic. She coordinated flawlessly with other vendors, organized everything including a fun time with sparklers for a large number of guests and kids, and made sure we had anything we needed at any moment all night long. She was so nice and pleasant to work with, we were thrilled. Our personal sweetheart table waitress Julia was amazing as well. She kept checking on us and really taking care of anything we needed. We would highly recommend William Penn Inn to anyone looking for a perfect setting with an outstanding staff for a night to remember forever.

First off the William Penn Inn is gorgeous, has great food and are a pleasure to work with. We were married in their whimsical garden and then our reception followed immediately.

I used the William Penn Inn flower Shop. I worked with Kate who worked with my budget and understood my vision. Our centerpieces were wooden bases and lanterns with candles inside, which they couldn't provide, but they did allow me to bring in whatever I needed.

Brian from the banquet department was excellent straight from the get go. He helped us get organized and was able to make great reccomendations moving through the whole process. (Including our photographer and DJ) He was always easy to get a hold of, either through email or a phone call, and if I couldn't reach him he was quick to get back to you.

Jessica was our wedding coordinator the day of the wedding. She was great. She got us organized the day before and the day of she kept everything running smooth.

I had a lot of "extra details" for the wedding day, chalkboard signs, memory table, unity paint ceremony... everything was in its place and set up - I didn't worry about a single thing the day of my wedding.

Everyone raved about the food, which is no surprise there. We had our tasting in February and my husband and I couldn't wait for our wedding from that moment on.

We will be coming here for dinner every anniversary.

All in all they are amazing and worth every penny. If you're looking for a fabulous wedding worry free, you must come here!

Shelley, senior banquet sales manager, helped my daughter and I plan for the wedding. Kate, the floral manager, discussed our flower choices. Kate was a delight. Seemed almost as excited about our wedding as we were. Flowers were beautiful. Just what my daughter wanted. The cake was food network worthy. Guests are still raving about how moist it was and the frosting-don't even get me started. The cake was perfect. As for Shelley, if you can get passed her lack of people skills, her being a little rough arouind the edges and her condescending tone of voice, she did a wonderful job. Everything went well. No mishaps, and the most important, the bride and groom and all of our guests had a terrific time.

The WPI was the perfect choice for our wedding! I could talk for days about the food, the elegance, their responsiveness to my millions of emails for an entire year, the fact they said yes to almost everything I asked, the way they set up all of my candy buffet, place cards, table numbers, etc. instead I'd like to highlight the people that made my wedding go off without a hitch. 1- Brian carraturra, he was the perfect fit for me in all my planning, always cutting to the chase with me right up to the day before when rain was threatening! He and his wife had a baby like a week before the wedding and he STILL managed to seamlessly pass the ball to Shelley who took over for all the phone calls and emails the week leading up to the wedding. Then on the day of rehearsal, Brian was there! He is a wonderful person and is great at his job! He knew how important the cake design was to means he took a hands on approach, he even stopped into the reception to make sure I loved it (it was gorgeous) 2- Kate Marshall- I LOVE this girl! WPI had a staff change and it was the best move for them. Kate stepped in and saw my vision exactly. She worked with me through email for weeks and finally took time out of her schedule to meet with me for hours to look at samples and stuff on Pinterest. On the wedding day, when Kate arrived at the bridal suite with the flowers, they were better than I could've imagined ! They were beyond perfect! All of them! Oh and the centerpieces, and the ceremony decor, I could go on and on . Kate also arranged to have the ceremony decor brought inside and set up Round the reception for an added touch. There were even flowers on our chairs at the sweetheart table. Again I will say that from day one, the William penn inn was the perfect choice for our wedding.

The WPI was the perfect choice for our wedding! I could talk for days about the food, the elegance, their responsiveness to my millions of emails for an entire year, the fact they said yes to almost everything I asked, the way they set up all of my candy buffet, place cards, table numbers, etc. instead I'd like to highlight the people that made my wedding go off without a hitch. 1- Brian carraturra, he was the perfect fit for me in all my planning, always cutting to the chase with me right up to the day before when rain was threatening! He and his wife had a baby like a week before the wedding and he STILL managed to seamlessly pass the ball to Shelley who took over for all the phone calls and emails the week leading up to the wedding. Then on the day of rehearsal, Brian was there! He is a wonderful person and is great at his job! He knew how important the cake design was to means he took a hands on approach, he even stopped into the reception to make sure I loved it (it was gorgeous) 2- Kate Marshall- I LOVE this girl! WPI had a staff change and it was the best move for them. Kate stepped in and saw my vision exactly. She worked with me through email for weeks and finally took time out of her schedule to meet with me for hours to look at samples and stuff on Pinterest.

My wedding was on April 5th. The only regret I have from the day is that it is over. The William Penn Inn treated my fiance and myself like we were royalty. Anything we needed was attended to immediately. I had a headache when I arrived and was given tylenol almost immediately. The room looking ASTOUNDING. The attention to detail was nothing but impeccable. The food was absolutely delicious, our guests are still talking about how wonderful the food was, especially the steak, which is often difficult when being cooked for such a large amount of people. Our decorations were set-up perfectly, including our candy bar. The staff was absolutely wonderful and completely accomodating. Leading up to the wedding, anytime I had a question, someone got back to me within 12 hours. The florist, Kate Marshall, was especially wonderful and executed what I wanted above and beyond my families expectations. I truly can not say enough good things about my experiences with the William Penn Inn. I am just sad it is over!

To the banquet staff, cooks, event managers, servers, bartenders, coat check at William Penn Inn,

We have received nothing but compliments from all our guests.

Our wedding was very beautiful. The venue was such a great place to have a wedding. The ballroom has amazing chandeliers and it's an intimate setting. The food was amazing from the apps at cocktail hour and the sit down dinner. And even our cake was delicious. The staff was great and our wedding coordinator Brian was so easy to work with. I would recommend this venue to anyone for any event.

Incredible ! I can not speak more highly of this venue. The venue and staff were incredible from the moment we met with the owner through our complimentary overnight stay and brunch the next day. The Inn was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season and the banquet staff (including our planning coordinator Brian and the coordinator the day of the wedding Jessica) did a marvelous job, particularly since we we had several expected changes before and the day of the wedding. My husband and I felt incredibly well cared for throughout our entire wedding day, overnight and at brunch the next morning. The service is impeccable, the food amazing, and the Inn is not only beautiful but extremely well kept. We could not have asked for a better venue for our reception ! I would gladly recommend the William Penn Inn for a wedding, banquet, party or even just dinner or Sunday brunch.

I can't begin to tell you how happy I am with WPI from start to finish. They were so responsive during the entire planning process and the wedding itself was absolutely perfect. All of the food was incredibly delicious (I had many people ask what baker made our cake because it was so good.. WPI did that too)! They really made it simple... food, drink, cake, centerpieces... they did it all! They were flexible with me on my very specific requests for decorations, comped us a suite and brunch the next morning.. it was great. Brian was a huge help, as he always quickly answered my thousands of emails and Jessica was great the day-of... she even bustled my dress for me!! Thank you to the entire staff - everyone was incredible!

My wedding at the William Penn Inn was PERFECT. From the time we booked the venue through the end of the night of the wedding, everything was so well organized and everyone at the WPI was incredibly helpful. Brian in the Banquet Sales department was so easy to work with and very responsive to any questions or requests that we had. The ballroom and cocktail hour room looked amazing on the night of our wedding. All of our favors, seating cards, table numbers etc. were placed out exactly how I envisioned. It was awesome to see everything come together. The new bridal suite is also a great addition to the venue - we loved it! On the night of the wedding, our main contact Jessica, was incredibly friendly, helpful and put my mind at ease. Last but certainly not least - THE FOOD AND CAKE WERE AMAZING. We received so many compliments from our guests on how delicious everything was. The food was one of the top reasons we selected the William Penn Inn. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!

She made our wedding go very smoothly and made sure to check in with us throughout the night so that we were taken care of the whole time!

Our wedding was awesome!! When we first started searching for venues, we weren't sure of what we wanted, but as soon as we came to William Penn Inn and met with Shelley (banquet sales team) we knew this was where we wanted everything. There is a reason they have such a good reputation, these people know what they are doing. I was surprised at some of the questions being asked about the day, the bridal party, and the different events because they really want to be a part of the details and making sure the day runs perfect. Jessica who coordinated the day of was extremely professional and patient and kept things running smooth. From the day we signed till the day of our wedding any questions we had, we went to Shelley who was pleasant, prompt, and professional. I think Kate in the floral department had one of the tougher jobs with me because I had no idea what I wanted but she was very patient and flexible, and the ceremony florals and my personal flowers were absolutely stunning. WPI has their own bakery, and we chose a vanialla cake with a raspberry mousse and chocolate mousse, and it was to die for. I'm a huge fan of cakes, cupcakes, and I am not just saying this because it was my wedding cake, but it was the most delicious, moist, decadent wedding cake I have ever had. People say brides don't really eat on their wedding day? I had half my meal and then 2 slices of cake! I made time to eat because it was sooo good! I've also had several of my guests tell me that it was the best cake, and wanted to know where I ordered it from. The food was delicious, many of the guests told us after that it was the best wedding food they've had...(and we didn't upgrade apps, we chose from the included menu). The facilities are beautiful and well kept, and the service and staff was excellent. Again, many guests commented the excellent service they received that night. WPI is absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend for every bride!You will not be disappointed

They were always one step ahead of us. I didn't have to worry about a thing while planning the wedding and the day of. They took care of everything!! On the wedding day, they started out by letting us and the bridal party freshen up in the brand new bridal suite. This was absolutely gorgeous and a great place for everyone to relax a little bit before the party started. They made the reception flow smoothly and the dinner service was quick and prompt.Not to mention the dinners was BEYOND delicious. we had the chicken Marsala, surf and turf, and tilapia as our dinner choices. Every single guests cleaned their plate! And the Cake....also AMAZING! My guests loved it! They also loved the wine service we had with our sit down dinner. The open bar had everything we requested....This place also has their own flower shop & bake shop so It was nice having everything in one location. The William Penn Inn itself and the gardens surrounding the Inn provide fantastic backdrops for pictures. Overall a five star wedding venue.

The William Penn Inn was FANTASTIC!!!!!! My husband and I could not have asked for a better venue to have our wedding reception.
Leading up to the event, Brian and Shelley were WONDERFUL! I communicated with Brian most often. We met with him about a year prior to the event, and then once more about six months before to discuss the timeline of the night and all of the food details. He was completely reliable and able to work with the vision I had for my reception. Any time I needed to speak with him, I head back immediately.
In addition, I provided them with a Candy Bar that they displayed beautifully. I also had a few other items that I wanted displayed, and they could not have done a better job putting the items around the room.
Throughout the event, the staff was extremely attentive. The food was DELICIOUS!!! We had a hot and cold cocktail hour in addition to stations around the room. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and they were able to go up as many times as they wanted.
You completely get your BANG FOR YOUR BUCK at the William Penn Inn.
I heard nothing but positive feedback from the guests at our wedding. My husband and I absolutely LOVED everything about our wedding reception. Thank you to the William Penn Inn. I HIGHLY recommend the William Penn Inn to ANYONE who is looking for an unforgettable reception.

I really can't say enough good things about the William Penn Inn for my wedding. We booked with them because we expected the best. We were not disappointed.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We had 210 guests for our wedding and used both the Surrey and Carriage room. We also had our ceremony outside in the Garden.

We are still receiving compliments to this day!

The William Penn Inn is the perfect place to have a wedding. The outdoor ceremony venue is spectacular and so beautiful. We have had nothing but raves from all our guests about the food! The hordourves during the cocktail hour were in abundance. No one had to go looking for them. They were always being offered. One group of guests LOVED that the servers all had on white gloves. Dinner was spectacular. Our three choices of chicken marsala, crab stuffed salmon, and filet were delicious. I honestly couldn't believe the size of my filet and how tender it was. The cake filled with raspberry was also a rave by our guests. From our first meeting with Brian our coordinator, our tasting which was fabulous, the planning and coordination by the Inn was smooth as silk. Every question asked was answered. We cannot thank the William Penn Inn enough for making our daughters wedding something she always dreamed of and a day we will never forget. I would also recommend getting rooms at the inn for the event. It was wonderful getting ready there that morning. Brunch was included with the room we stayed in. An added bonus!

I cannot speak more highly of the William Penn Inn. From the very beginning, they worked with us and made sure that we understood the entire planning process. Our guests raved about the food at the cocktail hour and about our entire night in general. Our choices for dinner were the Chicken Fontina, the Tangerine Salmon, and the Penn's Sampler. I do have to say, that if ANYTHING went "wrong" or not as planned during the reception, I had no idea. It really meant a lot to me as bride, that I could "relax" on our wedding day. The day after the wedding, we were talking to my parents and they mentioned that they would seriously consider having my sisters weddings there when the time comes. And I would totally encourage it, because I think a large part of keeping my sanity throughout the planning process was based on the reassurance from the William Penn Inn. Anytime I started to worry about something they would talk me through it and I would leave the Inn with no worries! We had guests calling for days after our wedding to tell us how much they enjoyed themselves!

I would absolutely recommend the William Penn Inn to a friend for a wedding, for dinner, for brunch, or any other occassion! No questions about that.

We held our wedding reception at the William Penn Inn and they were amazing from start to finish. In the beginning I had a lot of questions and Brian always answered my emails the same day. The day of Sue was our coordinator. She does not know the word "No." She made sure that we felt comfortable like guests at our own event. And the food.... yum! We had some serious allergies and the kitchen was very accommodating to special food needs. I don't think anything went wrong, but if something did we never knew! A great day we will remember forever thanks to the great staff at the William Penn Inn.

Our wedding celebration was more than we had hoped for. The room was beautiful. The cake was delicious and beautiful as well. Flowers and cake provided by Wm. Penn Inn. The food was delicious. The DJ, East Coast Event Group which was recommended by Wm. Penn Inn, was awesome. We received so much positive feedback from our guests which was so wonderful. The outside gazebo area was great for pictures.
We had put a lot of planning into the day. We were able to relax and enjoy the festivities which was such a bonus.
Thank you,

I could not have asked for a more perfect place to get married! Leading up to the wedding they were always so helpful with anything I had questions about and were always willing to walk through everything with me. The day before the wedding, I dropped everything off and when I arrived the next day it was all perfectly set up exactly how I pictured it! Shelly was incredibly helpful and patient as we went through all the last minute details and our wedding coordinator Jessica was a God-send on the wedding day. She took care of every little detail and made sure that my husband and I had the perfect day. I couldn't have asked for a better team! The outdoor garden is so amazing it felt like a fairy tale. Add in the delicious food and cake (best wedding cake I've ever had!) and you can't go wrong with the William Penn Inn. I'll absolutely be recommending this venue to all my friends!

I simply CANNOT say enough about our experience with The William Penn Inn! From start to finish, every encounter with them was handled in a professional, yet very pleasant way. Our 'tasting' dinner was a truly wonderful evening, and will always be a great memory. They treated us like royalty! I loved the fact that they have their own florist and baker (for the wedding cake) because it saved me time, money, and the extra hassle of not having to deal with two more outside vendors - trust me....you need to simplify as much as possible in order to enjoy this whole wedding experience! The day of the wedding, I just couldn't get over how carefully they tended to our needs. Someone on staff was always checking in with us to make sure everything was going well, but it was always well-timed (it was the perfect amount of attentiveness without intruding on our good time). I wouldn't change a thing about the whole experience, and I will be eternally grateful to them for making our big day SO special.

We couldn't have been happier with our wedding at the WPI. They were great with helping us along our way with planning our reception. I had my flowers through them as well. My wedding was a peacock feather reception and for that being their first themed wedding with them I couldn't have asked for anything better. My flowers and centerpieces were beautifully made with everything I wanted. We also had our cake through the bakery there and it also was made how we wanted to a t! Brian as well as the other staff were wonderful to work with. Not pushy like some others I met during my planning. I've heard nothing but positive and great things about our wedding and its 5 months later. Thank you so much WPI for everything!

My wedding at the William Penn Inn was totally fabulous! I can't say enough about how happy I was. My guests RAVED about the food, some even saying it was the BEST wedding food (and wedding cake!) they had ever had. The staff that served us that day were so professional and attentive. Prior to the actual day, starting from the first phone call, the team in the banquet department was so responsive. If I called or emailed with a question, if I didn't get a response immediately, it was never more than 24 hrs later. They were so accommodating and very pleasant. They made everything very easy for me, which was what I was looking for!! Having the wedding cake and reception table arrangements INCLUDED in the dinner price made that easy for me too! We had our ceremony there and ordered all of our flowers from the Flower Shoppe- Dawn saw my vision and got everything absolutely perfect! But let's be real here for a second... weddings are big productions and inevitably issues arise, but when they did they were little issues, the people at WPI were responsive, and easily corrected them, even after the day was over! I wholeheartedly recommend the WPI!

I cannot say enough good things about the WPI. From the initial sales meeting to the actual wedding, everything was handled with the ultimate in professionalism but with warmth and sensitivity. The venue was beautiful including the outdoor chapel and the food and drink were great as well. In particular, the in-house florist and wedding coordinator on the day of the wedding just out-did themselves! The WPI team made our wedding very enjoyable and took so much stress out of the entire project.

The ceremony space was spectacular! The manicured garden and Dawn’s incredible floral creations gave our ceremony a magical feel. So many of our guests complimented the gorgeous setting that formed the backdrop for our vows. Colleen was so helpful in keeping us all organized, on time, and calm.

Once we moved into the reception, Gordon absolutely made our night. He kept our guests happy and comfortable, making sure that the wait staff was attentive and accommodating. Our waiters and waitresses—Carol, Tyler, Alex, and Blase—were phenomenal. Carol was always making sure we had a drink and anything else we needed. In addition to the incredible staff, the food was perfect. We kept hearing about how delicious the hors d’oeuvres were (especially the mini reubens and the shrimp!) and how much they loved the Penn’s Sampler. The desserts were extraordinary and Gordon graciously boxed up 24 containers of the leftovers. The staff also helped us pack up all of our vases and candy at the end of the night.

Our friends are telling us that this wedding was one of the best they’ve ever been to. We couldn’t have executed our vision without the William Penn Inn. The staff helped us achieve our perfect day.

We're so happy that we chose William Penn Inn as our ceremony site and reception venue. We had our ceremony in their garden, and it was beautiful! The cocktail hour and reception were everything we could have ever wanted. Every staff member was friendly, accommodating, and helpful. The food was amazing! We had so many compliments. Our day-of wedding coordinator was very kind and told us exactly what to do. If you're looking for a beautiful, old-style wedding venue, William Penn Inn is definitely the place to go!

All of our guests raved about the food and are still calling us to tell us how great they thought everything was. The staff there is so helpful. From start to finish, they guided us through the whole process with ease. They are so professional and they go above and beyond to make sure that your day is great. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for an event venue. We would love to use them again for another event in the future. Our wedding reception was amazing!

We had so many complements on the awesome food and the atmosphere. The florist Dawn did such an amazing job with our flowers and decorations it took my breath away at how beautiful she made it. I honestly couldn't have been happier to have my wedding and memories at the William Penn Inn. I would highly recommend to anyone.

I was so impressed by these wonderful people! I wanted a very rustic, fall toned theme and I was absolutely floored by the displays. First they decorated my arch with vines and bunches of flowers and leaves, stunning. My two different centerpieces were equally beautiful, one had a base of flowers with willow branches and hanging votives, and another was a vase of fall flowers with votives on the table surrounding it. They did exactly what I wanted and more. They outdid themselves and I couldn't be more grateful!

The William Penn is not only historic and beautiful, but a very special place. Their staff is trained well and so you are in excellent hands. From the first phone call they were attentive and supportive. We worked together in collaboration to create our reception and their coordinators and staff came through with everything. The food was delicious. We had many guests with food allergies and sensitivities and so they had ingredient lists available for anyone with any concerns. We chose to do stations and it was a huge hit. Everyone was able to find food that they liked and it created a more social atmosphere. The flowers were beautiful - and they followed my directions exactly. The reception was tasteful, elegant and seamless. I would recommend The William Penn Inn for a wedding, any special event, or even just for a lovely dinner.

The William Penn Inn provided the most professional, high quality reception I could have hoped for. The organizing staff members/wedding coordinators were always available for questions, and I was able to sit down with the florist and baker to plan out exactly what I wanted for my flowers and my cake. Everything was top notch, from preparation to execution. Service was excellent, the room was beautiful, the food was just superb, and it was definitely the least stressful part of planning my wedding! I highly recommend the William Penn Inn to anyone planning a wedding or catered event.

Top notch quality here with white gloved service. Every person we encoutered at the Inn, treated us with the utmost respect and very courteous. They met our needs of our budget. They provided beautiful flower arrangements for the centerpieces, and we even upgraded the head table. The cake was so gorgeous and so full of detail. We loved every minute of our reception and thanks to the William Penn Inn, our day was one not to forget. Thanks!

We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding reception! All of our guests are still raving about the William Penn Inn! With all the inclusions (cake, flowers, chair covers and sashes) they offer, it helped to reduce the amount of stress that can go into planning a wedding. It was the first venue we saw and we quickly booked our date after seeing only one other venue. Everyone (Brian, Kate, Monica) we interacted with throughout the planning process was professional and courteous. Our wedding could not have been better. The room was set up beautifully. The food - from the hors d'oeuvres to the entrees to the cake and mini desserts - was fantastic. The flowers were gorgeous.

If a stress-free wedding is what you want, the William Penn Inn is definitely the venue for you!

*** I did not have my wedding here, this review is just for the CAKE!! ***

A customer of mine recommended me to order my cake (like she did for her wedding) at William Penn Inn. I never heard or thought of this since they don't advertise for it, but they do offer wedding cake services! We looked through their wedding cake book and picked the "Scroll Cake" (chocolate mousse & raspberry filling) which was about 5 tiers. For the brides that are interested in a particular style/look for their cake, I'm not sure if they can accommodate to this, I just picked straight from the book. For the scroll cake which was 5 tiers fed about 220 people and was about $375. We received MANY compliments from our guests how delicious the cake was! We had the top tier saved for our anniversary but ended up eating it within the 1st week from our wedding date, yes it was that GOOD! The ONLY drawback to ordering from them is you have to pick it up yourself. I had a few friends that helped out that day and they picked it up with no problems.

A special thank you to Penn Florist, more specifically, Dawn Miller who
did an AMAZING job with all decor for my ceremony & reception. Thank you Dawn, I loved everything you designed! Thank you also for always being so patient and kind, you were a dream to work with!

I'd dreamed for years of having my wedding reception at the William Penn Inn- I love the beauty, the character, and the historic nature of the place. I'm so happy that we were able to! The reception planning was the easiest part of our wedding, in no small part thanks to Shelley in the banquet office. She was always quick to return a message or answer any one of my gazillion questions. We went with the basic package and did not get any upgrades. We were not disappointed. The floral arrangements were fabulous, and the food was delicious. The cake was absolutely gorgeous, and tasted very good, too. My mom said it was the best wedding cake she'd ever had. I also stayed at the Inn the night before ("home away from home"), and then again with my hubby that night. The suites are beautifully appointed and very comfortable. A wedding coordinator was assigned to us, who made sure we had hors d'oeuvres and drinks, and communicated with the other vendors to help move things along. Our only complaint was timing (dinner took forever!!), but that was due to lack of communication by the DJ. The food was hot and delicious, and the servers were pleasant. We would definitely recommend the Inn to anyone in the area looking for an elegant, historic location for their reception.

The William Penn Inn did an amazing job! I would recommend this place to anyone. Everybody had comments to make about how great the food was. There were only a couple minor things that went wrong, I was told later on that there were a couple guests who did not receive parts of their meal, someone did not get a salad and some did not get cake, one person did not get served their meal and when asked about it they were told that they did not have anymore of what they ordered so they had to settle with a different entree. The vases that I had picked for the table arrangements were wrong and the color of the roses were the wrong color pink. At the ceremony our families were sitting on the opposite sides of what they should of been which was upsetting to me and our guests were suppose to blow bubbles as we walked out but apparently were told not to until we had already been down the aisle. Just a few minor things that went wrong but overall I had a great experience with the william penn!

The William Penn provided all of our guest with a fantastic evening. The staff was professional and very willing to please our guest. The food was by far the best food I've ever had at any event in my life. The facility was spotless. Our event planner gave my daughter & son-in-law a clear vision of how the room could be set up, any choice of food & how they could make it their own. We had our flowers, not only for the room, but for the bridal party & they came out exactly how my daughter invision them, maybe better. The wedding cake tasted amazing & was beautiful. Our bartenders worked hard to make sure you didn't have to wait long to have the perfect cocktail made. My daughters wedding was a dream come true, a perfect fairytale, the wedding that everyone will be talking about for years to come!!!

We loved that the William Penn provided a package - it made planning so much easier! We had our ceremony in the garden and used the Carriage Room for the reception. Prior to the event, we had a few minor concerns. But, everything was gorgeous and the food was outstanding! The day ran very smoothly. Our wedding planner, Sue, kept on top of everything and made sure the bride and groom were taken care of throughout the event. In addition, server Tony kept the bride supplied with her favorite shrimp hors d'oeuvres! We also got favorable guest feedback on server Morgan who entertained guests with his napkin folding skills. The price was very good for the quality of food and service provided. We also used WPI for our personal flowers. Kate designed the most beautiful bouquets I could have imagined. We can't wait to go back to the William Penn to celebrate our anniversary so that we can focus more fully on the delicious food! (The weak link in the meal at WPI is usually the rolls; but with the wonderful hors d'oeuvres, salads, the Penn Sampler, and cake, who cares? )

The William Penn in was the perfect place for our ceremony and reception. We had both rooms and used the larger room for our ceremony, which was complimented by our fabric draping that we paid extra $ for. I was told the appetizers at the cocktail hour were great and the food was delicious during the reception. The staff at WPI was very accommodating and made many changes to please us. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding and ceremony!

I was overall pleased with the William Penn.
They had everything well organized and prepared.
Good Food, everything exactly as we picked out.
They only thing I did not like is the fact that they pretty much plan everything out for you, they way they want it. They don't have a lot of room for your ideas and you must pick from everything preplanned by them.
I guess looking back on it, it was a good thing because it cut down on the stress, but if you want to do a lot of things your own way, I wouldn't suggest it.

The venue has great food and the bar was well stocked. I enjoy the wine service during the meal so your guests didn't need to get up. The food was delicious as always. The guests all stated what a great atmosphere the room was and how great the food was. I didn't always get a timely response with the banquet office, but someone did get back to me if I called and left a message to follow up on any unanswered emails. We had two guests who did not make it, later I asked for their meals to send home with their spouses. They were no where to be found and the kitchen staff was gone. Our day of coordinator (who was on top of everything else) informed the banquet office to contact us the next day, however they did not. We called them late that afternoon to get things squared away. Other than that, it was a great venue. I would recommend them for your event.

William Penn Inn did a beautiful job. Food was fabulous, room was beautiful. The people are very nice and are very eager to help you. My only complaint is the staff seems very unorganized when it comes to money. We called them and asked them for a total on the bill that was due. We got the money, went in to pay, then they tacked on like $300 extra dollars. Then at the reception, someone went up to my father and told him he owed $1000 more. Then actually we got a $95 refund. So that was pretty annoying, but overall, it was a great nite and I would reccomend them.

The William Penn Inn was a great choice. We were in the Surrey Room, which is the smaller of the 2 party rooms. It was the perfect size for 90-100 people. We had 90 and it was just right. The food was the highlight of the evening. The quality is just as exceptional as when you eat in the regular restaurant. As well, there are so many servers and attendants that everything was very seamless. Was worried that we'd notice there was a wedding going on next door, but you wouldn't even know it. The only thing I didn't like at all was the wedding coordinator they assigned us for the day of the wedding. Everything else was fantastic. Best surprise was the cake... it was included in the package and tasted better than expected and looked wonderful.

The William Penn Inn took care of everything and were very accommodating. The venue was both beautiful and reasonably priced. All of my guests enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The only problem that I had was that I did not meet my minimum for food, so I had to add $1,700.00 of extras which I really did not need. If I could do it again, which of course I cannot, I would have invited more guests. I underestimated how many people would not come.

Nice place for a wedding, just were annoyed with few mistakes that took place. Almost every table had at least one plate that was incorrect for entrees (took time to color-code which seat had which entree, but they did not take time to follow) and some guests had cold dishes. Another mistake was they did not get the party favors out in time for guests to take home after we had spent hours working on them at home. Lastly, the wedding planner who helped us for nearly a whole year did not even work that day, and that seems to have led to a lot of the errors. Aside from this, people were very nice and helpful (unless you are the groom and you want a shot - they don't do shots). I would recommend to a friend, but make sure to iron out all details before wedding. Even as simple as making sure you can take home the flower arrangements as we did not learn that we could until 1/2 hr before reception was over. Very elegant place, just the attention to detail was lacking.

Planning process was simplistic and direct, which I appreciated. However, the day of the reception the Inn lost power and they did not bother to inform the wedding party. It was only when my new husband and myself arrived at the Inn did we find that guests were sitting essentially in the dark. The staff was scrambling to find a generator to even power the dj and kitchen so that some food could be made. Offered a room eslewhere to stay overnight, only to find when arriving at the second place that they had no idea we were coming. Overall, very unhappy with the experience. A place in business for this long with this many events should have a back-up plan, and it was very evident that they did not.

The food was great and everyone was very impressed with the food, however there were things that went wrong on their end. The flowers, the cake but I was most unhappy with the outside pictures.

They provide you with a package to come to their venue for wonderful outdoor garden pictures. When our wedding party got there there was a ceremony outside so we were unable to get "garden" pictures for our wedding party. Instead we were forced to take them in the front of the building while cars driving by in our pictures. Later my husband and I went and we were able to get to a few spots in between the other bride, however we missed our cocktail hour. I was never informed ahead of time of the other wedding, so I was disappointed.

Other than that the staff working was very nice and everyone had fun which is most important!
