It's been my experience that hotel restaurants are generally, at best, utilitarian. They serve a decent quality of food at a somewhat fair price, but are nothing out of the ordinary. The Fork & Bottle at Malvern's Desmond Hotel, which used to be known as...More

The Hunt room was totally remodeled and it looks great. It is very different from the darker wood look. I have to say, though, the food while good was not great and the menu was somewhat limited. The service was very good, but I put...More

We celebrated our 50th anniversary at the Desmond. They did a phenomenal job accommodating us with our 48 guests. Someone said that it has recently changed hands and if that's the case, that could be the reason for its nose dive downwards. We were extremely...More

The server was friendly but unfortunately that's the only nice thin I can say. The decor is so old school it's ridiculous. Clearly they are catering to a much older crowd, but I'm not sure why they wouldn't update it just a tad. The food...More

The restaurant (classic British-type hunt room ambiance) is located within the Desmond Hotel in Malvern PA, an upscale boutique-type hotel that appeared to cater to business travelers. Parking is easy. We tried to make reservations for a weeknight and they told us it wasn't necessary....More
