Nice local tavern with good food (better than Tavern might imply). More of a local crowd than the nearby tourist restaurants in downtown New Hope. Fun live music with some occasional sing along. Friendly staff. Hope it doesn't get over crowded! In fairness probably 5 stars given the price and category, just not "5 stars" if that implies fancy

Have had a lot of good meals there. Wouldn't go for date with special menu like Mother's Day. Need to make a reservation for Friday or Saturday night 1 to 2 weeks in advance.

Excellent venue for a casual or family group meal (lunch or dinner). Very cozy atmosphere, excellent food, and parking.

Entertainment, fun and good food with good specials and friendly staff. Always enjoy. It is always nice to have the music - it adds depth to the visit. The lounge area is fun with popcorn and tv's, but if you want more quiet and privacy, there is certainly the dining room. Lots of choices.

Upon the recommendation of multiple people, my wife and I traveled to Bowman's Tavern for our anniversary dinner. I made previous reservations, and when we arrived we were greeted in name, with best wishes on our anniversary, as well as a complimentary glass of champagne. I had the Petite filet and added scallops, my wife had the filet as well.... More

First time here, but won't be our last. Super bar scene with great cocktails. Dinner even better - we shared 4 apps and each had different entrees. Big portions & very good. Live music from a 3-piece jazz band. Great night all around!!

My husband and I love eating at local places and were beyond thrilled with Bowman's Tavern for tonight's date night. We started with the Fulper Farm ricotta with honey, thyme, and balsamic on chibatta bread. It was unbelievable! We all but licked the plate! I had the most incredible pork sandwich with caramelized onions on a fresh roll and he... More

Very friendly service, great ambience, good music (the night we were there, it was jazz, but it could be almost anything; seven days a week!), and a nice meal!

This restaurant is really three places in one. The first bar is called the Tavern and is kind of like a casual sports bar with TV's and your favorite music playing from an iPod...very quaint! The second bar is called the lounge and if you like music then you will enjoy their nightly entertainment as it is a piano bar...I... More
