Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: I, Patrick Byrne, Proprietor have been at the helm of General Warren Inne since 1987, originally as the Chef / Partner and now as director of operations. Born and raised on a thoroughbred horse farm, my dining experiences as a youth at racetrack cities from Miami, Florida to Saratoga Springs, New York sparked my interest in becoming a chef. I was formally trained in culinary arts at The Culinary Institute of America in the early 1980’s following an eight year stint in a banquet hall as a teen. Following culinary school, I proceeded to follow a self-styled apprenticeship in New York City, Washington DC, Wilmington, Delaware and Philadelphia working for The Hotel DuPont, The Four Season’s Hotel, The Garden Restaurant, Vicker’s Tavern and for Chef Tell, an early pioneer in culinary television and author. The General Warren Inne in 1987 had just been renovated with the addition of a new banquet dining room and refurbishing of all the space on second and third floor to create the eight charming guests suites. This additional space required taking the cuisine to a higher level and that was my first priority as Chef. As business grew through the 1990’s the addition of a terrace for outdoor dining and with the advent of “pub dining”, I designed a new larger bar, “The Warren Tavern,” and yet another multi-use banquet room, The Admiral Vernon. As the inn entered into its fourth century, I strive to continue to work with my culinary team of chefs to follow new food trends with contemporary dishes while rewarding the loyalty of our long-time patrons with classic American-Continental cuisine. I have also been striving to bring our guest suites up to date with current amenities, all the while paying homage to the historic place the General Warren Inne holds in the community where it has thrived since 1745.
Why the Owner Chose West Chester:
I chose to take the leap from Chef to full fledged Proprietor because I believed (and still do) that I could meet several needs with the General Warren Inne. The local market did not have an independent restaurant to provide fine dining to locals as well as business travelers, especially with the development of the large corporate campus (Great Valley Corporate Center) nearby. They would need a fine dining restaurant and upscale/unique lodging. Plus our location and space is perfect for wedding locations. The historical aspect of the building also attracted my attention, not only being a pre-revolutionary building, but because of its significance during the Revolutionary War of the mid 1770’s. The business model was to return the inn to its original place in the Great Valley as restaurant, tavern and hotel when first built and opened in 1745. Thanks to the fact that the roof and exterior was in good condition, the building was relatively solid and upgrades and repairs were mostly cosmetic and to provide for 20th century comfort and hospitality services.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The General Warren Inne combines old-world charm with the benefits of 21st century amenities. The 268 year old inn is complete with central air conditioning, complementary wireless internet, flat screen cable TVs with DVD players, along with the classic and contemporary cuisine served in the restaurant Monday - Friday at lunch and Monday - Saturday for dinner. Overnight stays at our inn include a served continental breakfast seven days a week, featuring baked goods from our on-premise pastry chef. However, our real benefit is the personalized service our staff provides. From tavern bartending, to dining service and of course our inn keeping staff, our goal is to make The General Warren Inne your home away from home.
