Plumsteadville Inn, a local secret we're “knot” going to hide

Dating back 1751, “The Plum”  has been a destination for “burgers & beer, lobster & cheer” for generations.  We're going to let you in on a local secret.. and it's the Bavarian pretzels! Transport your tastebuds to Oktoberfest with their German-inspired secret recipe, passed down for generations. The mouthwatering, savory knots of dough are baked to golden-brown perfection and served with a creamy Dijon sauce that is unlike any other. The pretzels are a triple threat. With three on a plate, you can share if you’re nice, but with half off at Happy Hour, you don’t have to! Plumsteadville’s best-kept secret… but not anymore! Bring your friends and spread the word!

The countryside throughout Bucks County is richly blessed with buildings and architecture that tell a story. Some of those stories date back hundreds of years, and the stewards of these historic properties each leave their mark on the timeline.  Over the past few years, the team at Landmark Venues has completely reimagined and redesigned the historic Logan Inn in New Hope as a luxury boutique hotel, complete with a new open kitchen-style dining experience: Ferry + Main.
