Aside from saying "Yes" to marrying my best friend, choosing The Kimberton Inn for our wedding venue was one of the best decision I've ever made! Planning our big day was a walk in the park, all thanks to the incredibly competent, compassionate, devoted and simply marvelous work done by everyone at The Kimberton.
Price: INCREDIBLY affordable, especially with the quality of service, food and overall experience you receive. No surprises at the end with the bill. They are up front with fixed costs, and work with you to find the best options that fit your budget.
Staff: Simply put, they are experts. Attentive, professional, friendly and accommodating.
Food: Out-Of-This-World! Everything is prepared then and there. You get the same quality of dining you would if you went there for a dinner for two. Our guests raved about the food for months after our wedding!
Planning & Coordination: During a time that can easily become cumbersome and overwhelming, Jeff and Jay never let you forget what you are actually celebrating. They address any/all questions and concerns promptly. They provide you with a clear outline of what to expect. They offered their expert opinions, but encouraged us to make decisions on what WE envisioned for our day. They made planning for a wedding FUN and EASY!
I am looking forward to celebrating our anniversaries there for many years to come. I can't thank The Kimberton Inn enough for making our wedding day simply perfect..... beyond perfect.
I would recommend The Kimberton Inn to anyone and everyone! You can expect nothing less than perfection and excellence!

We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding reception! From the very beginning, Jeff’s expertise, attention to detail, and incredible hospitality helped to create an experience that was so memorable and flawlessly executed. Jeff, the general manager and owner, was a true pleasure to work with, and we were grateful for his direct communication and dedication to excellent service. He was very helpful in strategizing how we could best achieve the day we wanted (such as using the cocktail hour at the inn to greet our guests instead of having a receiving line right after the outdoor ceremony in the August heat). He also graciously accommodated elements that were important to us, such as having his staff set up our handmade and detailed centerpiece arrangements. The whole staff worked so hard to ensure that the day stayed on schedule, no glass was empty, and that every member of our party enjoyed themselves. We received so much amazing feedback on the superb quality of service, the gorgeous venue, and the incredible meal (especially the salmon and crabcakes). We also appreciated the venue rates, very reasonable for providing delicious food and drink (including top shelf liquors) to 120 people, presented to us upfront with no hidden site fees. We had heard only good things about the Kimberton Inn, and are excited to recommend it to others and return for many anniversaries to come!

There is absolutely nothing critical we can say about our experience at the Kimberton Inn. We would encourage everyone, even those in Philly, like us, to consider this beautiful, historic venue in the Chester County countryside. They are LGBT friendly and were lovely to us!
Planning was a breeze, as their wedding packages are all inclusive - open bar, appetizers, cocktail hour, champagne toast, three-course meal, white and red wine with dinner, wedding cake - EVERYTHING was included in the per person price. We ended up looking at venues in the city that cost more just to rent the space (let alone having to deal with picking a tiered package for booze, picking a catering package plus add-ons, etc.) than it did for our whole package. We met with Jeff two or three times, and everything was exactly as we asked for on the day. This process was so extraordinarily easy with Jeff at the helm.
On the day, the staff could not have been more attentive. Jeff saw to the bridal party personally, bringing us drinks for our nerves, making sure that we had everything we needed, from a private room in which to get ready, to towels to dry off the bridal bouquets, which had been in vases. He was meticulous in helping us get a count of the guests and keeping us on our timeline for the ceremony and the cocktail hour and dinner. The food was fabulous, from its gorgeous presentation to the excellent quality. The waitstaff was extraordinarily attentive and gracious, even going so far as giving us a quick lesson on how to cut our wedding cake (hey, we'd never done it before!). Our guests raved and raved, saying that this was one of the most wonderful weddings, if not the most wonderful wedding they'd ever attended. Even one of the brides' parents who has been in hospitality for 40 years was overly effusive in how wonderful the evening was. If you are looking for upscale food, extraordinary service, and no worries for your most special day, we HIGHLY recommend you consider the Kimberton.
Beautiful venue, and delicious food!
