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.

Been here about 20 times. Sitting at the bar is fine. If you get a table you'll probably get slow service and cold food. Service is consistently bad, food is ok and beer prices are pretty crazy. Wouldn't come back if they didn't always have a great taplist.

First floor is a nice little bar/restaurant with 40 or so beers on tap. Food is good, express lunch buffet from M-F is a nice touch. Upstairs is a small whiskey bar with 3-4 higher end beers on tap, also had local cold brew coffee on a nitro tap which is an awesome touch. Bottle shop is well laid out, everything marked with a price and easy to see. Walk in climate controlled beer cellar is very nice as well. Prices tended to be on the high side but overall a place I will stop at anytime I'm in the area again.

Great feel. Great service. Great beer selection. The menu seemed a bit limited but certainly adequate. Putting this place at the top of my favorites list for close to home hang outs.

This place has two components: the restaurant / bar and the bottle shop.

The restaurant has 40 beers on tap, with a great selection of local, national and international offerings, lots of seasonals and all that. There's also a large bottles list.

It's got a wood and iron, basementy sort of vibe that actually hits pretty close to the mark of being warm and comfortable and just a little bit faux. (The Loft has a small bar and sitting area that hits even closer to the "old world charm" thing they're going for.)

The food is hit or miss. Some items are really good, others are okay, and I've had one item (the pork shank) that was plain awful. Same goes for the service. The owners are great, extremely knowledgable and friendly. I've had some servers who are also great, some that are average and others that are completely inattentive.

They call the bottle shop the Loft. The staff there has always been top notch. They've got a huge, fancy-ass walk in cooler organized by style with the bottles displayed beautifully. Unlike other shops with thousands of bottles, this one has maybe 800 or so, but it has a "curated" feel and rotating selection that makes browsing much easier and more enjoyable. Prices are high, but they've got some amazing bottles, and what can you do, it's Pennsylvania.

They've also got four taps upstairs, a coffee bar, some cheese and meats.

I've been here many times and will be back again. Wish the food and service was consistent, but with what else they've got going for them (the beer!) it's still worth it.
