Thank you to Penn National Gaming for their donation to help cover our next business: Ye Old Ale House (Lafayette Hill, PA)
A good old fashioned ale house and local favorite, the Ale House has been in business over 40 years and is famous for their hand carved roast beef sandwiches, seafood platters and a wide variety of beers.
We are a 2nd generation family run restaurant and bar known for it's hand carved roast beef sandwiches and ice cold beer. The business has been in my family for over 30 years. My late grandfather who purchased the bar in 1987 owned it for 16 years and then my parents took over in 2003. We have 24 tables, 10 TVs, and 29 bar stools surrounding a roast beef carving station for all to see. The Ale House is a staple in the community with a very loyal following. You will see fathers bringing in their son(s) to have a Beef sandwich and drinking Birch Beer on tap because that’s what his father did with him and it keeps their tradition going. Couples out on a date for a fun laid back night, Families and friends celebrating a little league win, and golf buddies stopping by for a few beers after a round. You will find neighbors sharing a beer after shoveling their driveways, parents after a PTA meeting and friends organizing a fantasy draft. Everyone feels at home here and has their own place in the Ye Olde family. You could say we are like the TV show Cheers, heck Norm himself even stopped by for a frosty mug and a beef once. Our staff through the years has ranged from our own family members, close friends, students starting their 1st job in life, kids working their way through college and loyal employees who have been with us for decades. Even Barstool's own Adam Ferrone AKA “Rone” worked for us for a while. We have had the barstool flag hung up inside for over a year now. Currently I couldn't have asked for a better staff than what we have right now. They have been one of the main reasons we are still fighting to stay afloat. Their commitment and loyalty to us during this pandemic has been everything to us. I don't think we would still be open if we didn't have the team that we have now. This business means everything to my parents and I but it also means everything to the community. We have stayed open since the beginning of the pandemic, following all the rules our Governor has issued doing anything and everything possible to survive. Our building is old and small so when capacity is limited we can only have very few tables. Our building is also located on a slope, which causes no possibilities for outdoor dining. Our business just isn’t the type of place that can survive on just takeout. These times are stressful to say the very least and we struggle every day. But we are still here, we are still serving our community and still keeping our staff employed because we are a family business and that’s what family does. We appreciate what you are doing for small businesses everywhere. If you are ever in the area please stop by for a beef and a beer on us, or even a pizza review. We would love to thank you in person. Please consider us for a donation so we can continue to support our family, friends, and our loyal following.
