Historical White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar Reopens to Rave Reviews

FRAZER, Pa., Jan. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Built in 1715, the original White Horse Tavern of the Brandywine Valley was one of the first licensed public houses in America. After undergoing extensive renovations, the re-imagined White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar, located in the Sheraton Great Valley Hotel, has recently reopened for business.

After its seventeenth-century debut, based on the belief that strong liquors were thought to be "the best antidote against any or all diseases indigenous to the new country," the White Horse Tavern quickly gained popularity and soon enjoyed a reputation as one of the most famous inns in the state. It has fed and sheltered Native Americans, traders, pioneers, revolutionaries, loyalists and more.

The White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar is committed to keeping the establishment's history alive, but recognized a need for the addition of modern touches. The recently completed renovations have created a more intimate atmosphere, and the restaurant now radiates a classic colonial ambiance, with white trim and ornate decor, window embellishments and four fireplaces. Those looking for a relaxed night out will love the new wine bar, which has retained its pub-style charm while adding an all-new selection of top-tier wines.

In addition to its physical renovations, the White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar has also revamped its menu to support local farmers and provide fresh, farm-to-table meals. The focus is on locally sourced ingredients, which are used in recipes whenever possible. The White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar is committed to offering delectable menu selections for all guests, including those with special dietary requests.

The wine bar features happy hour every Monday through Friday from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. Guests can also enjoy live piano performances every weekend—new talent is regularly added to the list of performers.

The newly remodeled White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar is also the perfect place for any special event, including client appreciation dinners, after-work gatherings, bridal showers, business meetings, bereavement luncheons, wine-pairing dinners, holiday parties, retirement parties and birthday celebrations.

The management of the White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar is thrilled to bring new life to a restaurant in the unique setting that only Chester County, Pennsylvania can supply. Whether stopping by for a cozy meal with a significant other, enjoying happy hour with coworkers after a long day's work, or hosting a private party or meeting, the entire staff looks forward to welcoming both past and new guests from around the area and beyond.

All are invited to enjoy a romantic fireside Valentine's Day dinner February 13th and 14th from 5:00 -10:00 PM at the White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar, and then take the elevator home to the Sheraton Great Valley Hotel. This dinner and room package includes wine pairings, a 3-course farm-to-table meal, and an overnight stay with a complimentary bottle of champagne.
