The food is okay nothing special. They give huge portions, but I would rather they give less food of better quality. Last time I was there my salad had so many bad rotting pieces of greens in it it was downright nasty. Prior visits had been a little better. The decor is old and tired; I think this place is better for drinks than food or maybe burgers or bar food.

When my kids were young, this was the place we went when they were happy...or sad...or scared...or anything. The Sumney could make them feel better. It was never overly crowded and the staff was friendly. It was good "bar food" with a few surprises.

We noticed the quality declining in the past few years. The waitstaff seemed less interested. Items disappeared from the menu. It just lost some of the friendly, inviting atmosphere it once had. We found ourselves going less and less often and eventually, it got to a point where nobody suggested it anymore.

I do love how supportive they are of veterans. Oh, and if you go on Thursday there's a wandering magician. He's a great guy who really loves entertaining with his craft.

Hopefully The Sumneytown has improved, but I think that knowing the township has an eye toward developing that corner probably hasn't inspired them. I'm sure it still has its good points but it isn't the place for me anymore.

We stopped in Sumney Tavern for dinner while traveling through Lansdale. We chose this place because of a sign advertising kids night (although not the night we stopped in) so we knew it would probably be family friendly. It is much bigger than it appears from outside. There is plenty of parking. We very much enjoyed dining at Sumney Tavern. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming -- a European Pub feel. It was quite busy, but we were seated immediately. The service was friendly. The menu has choices for everyone, children's menu also had a variety of choices. We had the soup with shepherd's pie and French dip. The soup was a bowl, not a small cup. The French dip was big enough to share, as was the shepherd's pie. Go with a big appetite or opt to share. All the food items were very good. The Sumney Tavern is a great place for friends or family to gather and share time together over good food.

Sumney Tavern is an Irish-style pub that is a popular spot for locals and Merck employees. The decor is dark wood, brass fixtures and green wallpaper. Entertainment is a regular feature and the horseshoe bar often is busy. The menu of usual pub fare (burgers, flatbreads, pastas, sandwiches, etc) is augmented by nightly features (open-face crab melt). Portions are large and the prices are good.

The food was varied and delicious .... scrambled eggs, omelet station, creamed chipped beef, bacon, sausage, scrapple, potatoes, sweet potato waffles, fresh fruit .... so much food it is hard to remember it all. If you order the waffles, don't forget to ask your waitstaff for fresh whipped cream.
