The Iron Abbey is a welcome addition not only to Horsham, but to the wider Philadelphia area drinking scene. This bar features over 200 bottles of beer and has a great selection of rotating beers on tap. (Where else can you get St. Bernardus Abt. 12 draft???) The atmosphere is homey and inviting with a nice stout bar, lots of wood and soft lighting. The food is excellent--I would try the nachos for a snack and if you're looking for something a big more substantial, try the burgers or the pork tenderloin sandwich. It can be a bit hard to get a beer at times especially when it gets a bit crowded, but the selection is definitely worth the wait. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to give their suggestions on selections. Large bottles, magnum sized I guess, of the three Chimays are available for parties to share. It's quite impressive to see a bunch of guys sitting around sharing one of these monsters. The Iron Abbey also hosts beer dinners and sports (particularly soccer) are featured on the televisions along with various specials to go along with these events. Great place, is my new home away from home.

Stopped in here for dinner last night after the Tired Hands release. My first trip here, I may have been more interested in the steaks next door but this was a close second.
Atmosphere was pretty good. Lots of people all over the place enjoying themselves, a few TV's on the walls and a nice space overall. Quality was pretty high as well. Our drinks were served in the correct glasses and the food was fresh made. Speaking of food, I got the smoked and oaked ribs. The sauce was a little spicy for my tastes, I prefer my BBQ on the sweet side, either way they were pretty good, as were the potato's.
Service was a bit hit or miss. She definitely seemed like she was stretched pretty thin with all the people in there. We had to wait a few times but she was doing her best. Selection was pretty solid, I saw quite a few things I would have gotten. I went with an authentic german kölsh and fallowed it up with a passion fruit caipirinha, wish they offered my usual orange. Prices were a tad high on a few menu items and a couple of the drafts but overall they are on par with the other places in the area.
Overall a pretty solid Gastro Pub. I may return to go to na'brasa, might have to stop in again if I do.

A great place in the middle of the bedroom burbs of Philadelphia/New Jersey. The most impressive thing about the place, structurally is the big facade and arched door. Inside it feels like any other pub, with sports on the tube and a big rectangular bar with taps on both sides. It has some "medieval" themed areas and exposed beams in the ceilings that give it some additional appeal.
The staff I dealt with (two bartenders, one of the owners and a waitress) were all knowledgeable in the beers. I sparked up a conversation with one of the bartenders and I soon had the attention of the other bartender and was later introduced to one of the owners. This immediately let me know that they were interested in critical feedback. They were quick to offer samples and suggestions. A++
They have an impressive cellar (of unlisted beers) in addition to their regular offerings. One of the only drawbacks would be no cask offerings. You don't really notice because the staff was extraordinary and they are willing and able to find what you like.
The selections are outstanding. Visiting around the holidays they had an inordinate amount of the myriad of Christmas and holiday ales, but remained as diversified as one can in the realm of mediocre spiced brown ales and whites/wheats.
The prices are a bit inflated from what I am accustomed to but not out of line with the area. One of the establishment's main drawbacks for the international crowd is a lack of vegetarian dishes. I'm not a vegetarian, but I work with many Hindus who won't visit here because there is nothing they can eat (main dishes).

Finally got around to checking this place out. Nice tidy facade in a building shared with a Brazilian steakhouse. Walking in revealed a lot of stone, a lot of wood, quasi-European feel with a contemporary, causal-dining sterility. The main room has a nice large bar that seats at least 30-40 people, I'd estimate, and there are plenty of tables around to accommodate a large crowd, as well as a huge separate chamber with ample room for even more people. Lots of TV screens and an unfortunate sports bar vibe, which was a real disappointment, but oh well, it's a bar, what can you do? Nice overall, but it kind of felt to me like someone bricked over an Applebee's and called it an abbey.
It wasn't very busy at the bar on my first visit, and the service was fine, the bartender seemed knowledgeable and on the ball. I went dry once, but it was not nearly over the threshold of tolerance. Nothing really to complain about with the beer selection, with 36 on tap and more in bottles, including a good number that I had not had yet. Good mix of imports and domestics, and most if not all the taps were reserved for micros, with your typical macros in bottles. Four-glass sampler flights for $9 was a decent option. Food menu was extensive and impressive, and really makes me want to go back. A bit on the pricey side, especially if you're getting an entree, but the beer prices aren't too outrageous, and some of the smaller plates are more wallet-friendly. My bill was in the $35 range for a delicious fish & chips platter, a sampler flight, a Hopslam, and a De Dolle, so take that as you will.
I'd definitely like to go back...as long as there isn't a game on.
