                  As good as the food is, The Whip Tavern’s prime location may be the real draw. It sits on perhaps the loveliest stretch of country road in Chester County, west of Unionville via Route 82 and along Route 841 north out of Chatham. The scenery is mostly preserved open land, part of the old King Ranch—and don’t be surprised to find traffic stopped to allow passage for red-jacketed riders atop galloping horses in hot pursuit of a furry animal.
As for the food, it’s classic English and Irish pub fare—Welsh rarebit, bangers and mash, bubble and squeak, lots of savory sandwiches and salads, and even a curry. All of it is impeccably prepared. You can BYOB for
a $5 corkage fee or opt for one of their draft beers. Eat in or out on the back porch, alongside Doe Run. And though it’s in the middle of nowhere, parking is at a premium (long story). 1383 N. Chatham Road, Coatesville, Pennsylvania, (610) 383-0600,
