When the snow starts falling, and we want to dive into a pub that could be the set of a few episodes of Peaky Blinders, we head to The Dandelion in Rittenhouse Square. But really The Dandelion really works any time of year. The bar is full of tartan bar seats, leather booths, and everything you’d expect from a throwback UK-themed bar—including the old paintings of hounds. They also have things like silver trays brought out for tea service and a menu full of English staples like Sunday roast, fish and chips, and a lamb shepherd’s pie that’s oozing with cheddar cheese. 

Bring your friends here for an afternoon tea that can be filled with scones, shortbread, or small sandwich options like curry chicken. Or you can stop by for a casual $6 pint during Happy Hour and some deviled eggs filled with sweet whipped madras curry.
