Susan S. Yeske: Dining Out

Winery’s Pour House is a full-service restaurant

Local specialties, all made from scratch

Tie-Dye, covered in vegetables and creamy pesto is one of the popular flatbreads at the Pour House at New Hope Winery.

Cheese plates and charcuterie have been served along with wines for tasting at New Hope Winery for five years. But all that changed two months ago when the winery opened the Pour House, a full-service restaurant.

The opening makes the winery, already known for its 26 wines and music venue, The Note, into a full-service entertainment destination.

Chef and restaurant manager Bob Weber, a Bucks County native who graduated from Central Bucks High School East, has crafted a menu of burgers, flatbreads, dinner salads, appetizers and sandwiches, with new seasonal entrée specials each week.

Eight-ounce burgers include the American Standard with lettuce, tomato, onion and cheese; the Waco with Colby Jack cheese, Southwestern-style aioli, pico de gallo and avocado; and the Sweet & Smoky with gouda, candied bacon and roasted red aioli.

Flatbread toppings range from mozzarella with marinara to buffalo chicken to the Tie Dye, which is a rainbow of fresh vegetables over a creamy pesto spread.

Entrees change weekly, and have featured seafood, rib-eye steaks and Weber’s own recipe for paella. Side dishes are seasonal, featuring vegetables from local farms. Cheeses on sandwiches come from local purveyors.

“We are in love with this menu,” said Weber, who added that everything is made from scratch at the restaurant except for the bread. When he has the chance, he uses New Hope Winery wines as an ingredient in his recipes.

The full bar includes rotating craft beers and specialty cocktails along with New Hope Winery’s own wines.

The restaurant has become a draw for nights when concerts are held in The Note, but it also is designed to draw locals looking for a drink and an easy meal.

“I really want this to be a local tavern where you can come to find a good meal at a good price,” said Weber.

The restaurant also is a venue for events such as birthday parties and showers.

The New Hope Winery and Pour House restaurant are located in a former barn built in the 1700s which went on to serve as a museum and antique shop before becoming a winery. It is located between New Hope and Peddler’s Village.

Reservations are recommended for the restaurant on nights when there is live music in The Note.
