Yet again, The Farmhouse and its staff have outdone themselves with another beautiful and delicious Thanksgiving experience! As a long time People’s Light patron and supporter, I have had many opportunities to dine at The Farmhouse Bistro before shows, and have, over the last several years, taken advantage of their no hassle, friendly, and welcoming Thanksgiving atmosphere. Whether arriving at noon or 7pm for your meal, the buffet is always fresh and expertly maintained with the chef’s most creative selections, and the staff truly could not be more professional, gracious, and helpful. I am so fortunate to live just minutes from this extraordinary hidden gem in bucolic Chester County!

Hidden gem! Our reservation was for 8:00 pm, so we arrived just after the theatre crowd cleared out and we had the place to ourselves. Worth keeping in mind if you don’t mind eating a little later. That being said, the food was plate-cleaning delicious! We both ordered from the 3-course prix-fixe menu, but there were plenty of other tantalizing a la carte options. My filet was perfectly cooked, which is always a pleasant surprise. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli, which was presented as a ragout in a bowl chock-full of savory vegetables and was just as tasty for lunch the following day. The professional wait staff struck the perfect balance between friendly and attentive, without impeding on a romantic dinner. The bar and wine list are simple but won’t leave you wanting. Can’t wait to eat there again.
I just wanted to drop a note to praise the excellent service we received while we were there Our server was absolutely fantastic, extremely attentive and charming. I don’t think that we’ve ever had a better server. Everyone in our group was commenting about him. I also appreciated the fact that he led us to the theater to the lobby via the back way inside the theater. Being a person with limited mobility and using a crutch, it was greatly appreciated to not have to traipse out in the ice. I can’t forget to mention the food, an absolute delight to the taste buds. Again, thank you so much.

My husband and I celebrated our 37th anniversary last night with dinner at The Farmhouse Bistro. It was our first visit but I guarantee you it won’t be our last. The food was extraordinary, the service was excellent and we were quite surprised by the generous size of the portions. And the building itself? Oh my goodness

We had the BEST meal here…The service was perfect and the food was out of this world. (And it was reasonably priced for the quality!) We will definitely be back for dinner soon!

What a delightful Valentine’s Day dinner! The choices offered were outstanding and it was difficult to make a decision; however, our final choices pleased us very much. A suggested list of wines to go with the dinners was a nice touch…
My husband and I went to the Farmhouse for Valentine’s Day and found a great little romantic restaurant! The food was delicious and the room quiet, despite the closeness of the tables. There are only a handful of tables in each room so you don’t have to fight to hear each other. It was also very cool to have our wine in goblets! We’re definitely going back!
I absolutely loved our dinner at The Farmhouse Bistro at the People’s Light. The atmosphere was beautiful and the servers were just so friendly. The farmhouse is truly authentic and rustic. The food was absolutely wonderful, most definitely worth the price. This is a perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday with the one you love.
I can’t say enough about the service there. The food rocked, the show rocked, and the bistro is just cool. [The staff] totally made fine dining fun.
We had a pleasant evening…there were food choices for everyone…tasty with beautiful presentation. We had a relaxing time eating and still leisurely stroll over to the theatre. Thank you.
Another great night at the Farmhouse Bistro. We enjoy dining prior to the plays and our entire group requests that we continue the tradition.
Perfect for dining before the performance. Having driven an hour to get to Malvern for the play, it was convenient to walk a few feet away to the theater. Food, service, and atmosphere were wonderful.
