As the holiday season comes to a close, there are still a couple of days to celebrate the New Year at Peddler’s Village in Bucks County. Visit this weekend for the final days of holiday lights (up through Sunday, January 6) and the Annual Gingerbread Competition and Display (open during shopping hours through Saturday, January 5). You’ll be amazed by the beautiful holiday light displays, and you’ll get the extra benefit of shopping the January Sale Event with special savings throughout the 70 specialty shops. Whether you visit this weekend for your last chance at holiday merriment or some other time in January to take advantage of the great sales, you’ll also want to be sure to visit one of the delicious restaurants Peddler’s Village has to offer. Here are your top three options for a great meal:
Buttonwood Grill: Already becoming a favorite after opening in 2012, Buttonwood Grill offers breakfast, lunch and dinner in a refined casual atmosphere. The signature Buttonwood burger is ground fresh daily and is a favorite for guests. Other options include stone-fired thin crust pizzas, pastas, salads and comfort dishes such as an incredible appetizer of homemade mac and cheese with stewed tomatoes. Buttonwood Grill features an extensive craft beer menu, and you have the option of buying a growler of draft-to-go if you find a favorite. Visit their website for hours, menus and to make reservations.
Cock ’n Bull: To many visitors, the Cock n’ Bull is the go-to restaurant of Peddler’s Village. With floral drapes, a large welcoming fireplace off the entranceway, Windsor chairs and beautiful wood accents, the Cock n’ Bull is just about as traditional as you can get. While the restaurant is mainly known for meat and potato favorites such as beef burgundy, chicken pot pie and meat loaf, executive chef Kevin Nagle has updated the menu considerably with daily specials and dishes showcasing seasonal ingredients. The all-you-can-eat buffets are perhaps the restaurant’s most popular events. Thursday evenings you can enjoy King Henry's Feast, an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring fresh seafood and hand-carved roasts. Every Sunday morning, visit for the brunch buffet. Visit their website for hours, menus and to make reservations.
Earl’s Bucks County: Using only the freshest ingredients from Bucks County’s local, sustainable farms, ranches and fisheries, Earl’s is a locavore’s dream. Under general manager David Zuckerman (who worked at Caesars in Las Vegas), the menu takes American favorites and serves them in new, creative ways that celebrate the diversity of our region. And as if the menu wasn’t enough to bring you in, Earl’s offers a number of nightly specials and events such as live entertainment from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. on Fridays; half off all draft beer, bottled beer, wine by the glass, select cocktails and select martinis every Monday through Friday in the bar lounge from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.; and BYO Wine Monday evenings (no cork fee, or save 25% on any bottle of wine from their wine list.) Earl’s is also a proud recipient of a 2012 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Visit their website for hours, menus and to make reservations.
