Been here more than one occasion when I wanted a good hot Roast Beef sandwich. Although it is not cheap & nothing special about the place just a local bar that is friendly with decent service

We live in Newtown Square and have considered the Ale House our 'go to' restaurant for a quick bite. Roast beef sandwiches do not come rare and au jus very salty. After the last time we went with mediocre food and a large check we decided we will not be back. Sorry to have to say that!

Can't believe all the crying about high prices. This place has been here about 50 years and it looks it. Stop in here maybe 1x a year when visiting family and am never disappointed but sounds like the long time locals miss the old owner but guys---they retired so let's move on. Prices are still crazy reasonable with good cold... More

My bride and I stopped in for an early dinner on a weeknight. Place was empty when we got there but the bar had filled up by the time we left. Our dinners, roast beef sandwiches were good but at $ 11.00 they should be good. Our server, as all servers there,seemed distracted and more interested in talking to themselves.

I've visited here several times over the years. Sometime last year, I noticed a drop off in the food quality. The remodeled place looks better, same friendly service, but the portions are smaller and nothing tastes as good as it did. Worse, the roast beef sandwiches that were their calling card are now not cut forma rare roast. It looks... More

Two RD sandwiches and 2 Coleslaws with tax was over $29!!! They gave us a new menus, fewer selections than... More

Wanted an old fashion roast beef sandwich and thought this would fit the bill. We were sadly disappointed . Requested that the meat be sliced thin. Waiter said he noted the request on the order. Not what was delivered to the table. If the meat was precut, they should have told us they couldn't meet the request. Instead they ignored... More
